    An okay place to start your banking career

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Fayetteville, WV

    ProsLots of room to advance if you're aggressive about it. Easy access to almost any level of employee if you have a problem.

    ConsHeld on to old/cheap ways of doing business. Reluctant to upgrade. Reluctant to equip people well. Cheap was better than good.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart spending money on keeping good employees. When you upgrade, upgrade to a system that is actually sufficient. Trust me, it'll keep you from having to upgrade twice.

    WORST COMPANY EVER!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Chantilly, VA

    ProsCasual Dress Code - That's about it

    ConsCheap
    Lacking Communication
    Resistance to Change
    Old Technology
    HORRIBLE BENEFITS
    Incompetent Management Staff
    No Feedback on Performance
    Bias Treatment of Employees
    Unpaid Lunch Break
    Not Many Promotional Opportunities
    Deceiving

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop being so cheap! If you're going to brag about how well the bank is doing in terms of revenue, then maybe you should ante up for some technology that was made in the new millennium - or at least something newer than GREEN SCREENS from the 80s, and also maybe pay your employees more, or invest in a health insurance plan that actually covers something medical. A better communication of an employees performance is HIGHLY needed - as nobody ever seems to know how they're doing. THERE IS ALSO NO TRAINING GIVEN!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Decent benefits, but poor pay, coworkers, and hours.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe work isn't hard. If you are full time the benefits aren't bad. They do try to promote from within.

    ConsThe pay is pretty low. At the branch I was at my coworkers were miserable. If your in an in store branch you have crappy hours. You also have to deal with dumb, smelly, rude customers.
