    Pros

    It is a job. You get decent benefits.

    Cons

    This is a sales job hiding behind the title of a customer service job. It is the most stressful environment that I have ever worked. Many of the supervisors are incompetent, but they are allowed to stay. They are allowed to get rid of associates so that they have to take no personal blame. And the sales system is horribly flawed. But they will still hold you accountable even though they can't always tell you why your sale didn't validate. The supervisor you get will play a great role in your experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to upper management is to get rid of the incompetent middle managers. They will eventually destroy the company.

    I worked at Regions Financial full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Hours. The shifts were pretty good. Off on Sundays. Early Saturday morning hours.

    Cons

    Too Sales Driven. You got penalized when you didn't meet your sales goal. They pushed everyone to open new accounts even if the people didn't need them.

    Pros

    Corporation seems to actually care about there employees. Pay scale is good. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Sales goals are lofty and products are average. Charge fees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The sales staff would be able to reach goals if we didn't charge so much in fees and were more competitive on rates.

    Regions Bank Former Employee

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Regions Financial as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly management,co-workers, some on the job training. Opportunity for advancement if you show willingness
    to learn and become part of the Regions team.

    Cons

    Very "old school" and not quite up to date on internal policies when compared to other regional banks in the area.
    Small presence in the Dallas, Texas area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is Texas, not Alabama, Need to upgrade your attention to employees as well as customers,
    if you want to compete with the bigger banks on the block.
