    I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There was incentives to up sell things.

    Cons

    Lack of communication and confusion during the hiring process, training, and going live on the floor. I was told that I was going to be doing something completely different then what I ended up doing. The length and depth of training was good. I felt very confident going live but wish I would have known how to use the phone systems a little more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Making sure that the people you bring on know what they are going to be doing specifically.

    I worked at U.S. Bank as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Pay, fairly decent training manual, co-workers, cafeteria, convenient parking.

    Cons

    Non-pay for approved hours, ongoing threats of non-payment by Kelly Services supervisor even when US Bank approved hours on time. At one point, my Kelly Services supervisor was calling or emailing me 12X in a 20-hour span, threatening to not pay me for hours my US Bank supervisor approved on time. My Kelly Services supervisor ordered me to go home (suddenly leaving my mandatory training at US Bank for 4 hours) to download forms that were not even needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have US Bank liaison for contract employees if Kelly Services is chronically late pay, or continually harasses and threatens to not pay.

    Pros

    Lots of room for advancement. You have to ability to learn a variety of functions and can be constantly switching departments if you need a change in pace.

    Cons

    You start with a minmal 2 weeks of PTO. After 5 years, this bumps up to 3 weeks. After 15 years, it goes to 4 weeks and stops at that. Bonuses are very minimal and are only once a year, based on performance and quality. Reviews are at the beginning of the year so bonuses don't appear on your paycheck until well into February, sometimes March.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it worth your employees to do a good job. Quarterly bonuses for good quality and going above and beyond would greatly reduce the turnover rate.

    I have been working at U.S. Bank full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The price of the health insurance was good. Department manager was great. Recognition for good work.

    Cons

    Although the insurance was "cheap", the pay was bad so the chunk of money it took out of every check made it that much harder to get by with basic living expenses. This company doesn't treat you like a person, they treat you like a number, a peon, like you are disposable. The work was awful. Taking calls with no breathing room in between, not even a second to take a sip of water. Every second you were not on a call went against you and God forbid you needed to use the bathroom. You needed to be a robot. Terrible place. They made me feel like a child. The training was long and it didn't cover a lot of what you encountered with callers everyday and the expectations were completely unrealistic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the BS the people on the phone have to put up with, missing important family events, etc.. they deserve to be better compensated. US Bank wants their employees to give 110% but US Bank only wants to give back a fraction of that. Look at employees as actual PEOPLE, not robots.

    I worked at U.S. Bank full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Day shift?! 9:30 to 8:00 including every Saturday. Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays off

    Cons

    Middle Management - Once a week you get a verbal beat down of any mistakes you may have made. We are talking even the very smallest of mistakes. Never any positive feedback. If you should ask a question they say they will get back to you and they don't. Unless you are a friend of management you are nobody. They expect you to do things they never trained you on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle Management butt kissing needs to stop.

    I worked at U.S. Bank part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to spend your whole day with kids. They will brighten every bad day. It was a new day and new experience everyday. And the staff were amazing and always helpful!

    Cons

    The pay wasn't the greatest but I never complained because I loved what I did and couldn't wait to go to work every day.

    Pros

    Decent pay, managers work to make employees happy, overall great starter job, great benefits and 200 hours of vacation.

    Cons

    Supervisors lack vision and can be very counter intuitive to productivity, constant changes in responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great choice of management but the supervisor selection seems based on time of employment as opposed to actual strenth of employees which leads to a few dim bulbs in the supervisor positions.

    Pros

    There are lots of schedule options depending on your needs. Many different entry level jobs available.

    Cons

    Many different entry level positions should mean many opportunities for advancement, but not really.
