    Teller

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood benefits, great training to prepare you for the position before you actually go to your branch. Organization is large enough to provide opportunities to transfer to other departments. 401K and tuition reimbursement generous.

    ConsLow pay, goals are unattainable, transfer are difficult as it is generally who you know. They have a policy that any staff that resigns is never eligible for rehire, even if they were a good employee. I found that astonishing! So, if you decide to leave to try something else but want to come back in a few years you can't.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI worked in several branches depending on when coverage was needed. One of the grocery store branches had very poor management and seems the issue has never been addressed. Felt bad for the staff as they were forced to leave or transfer due to issues that seemed to be ignored by upper management. Although this wasn't my permanent home it would make sense for WT to address the issues.

    the new Citizens.

    Retail Banking (Current Employee)

    ProsRI based bank, cares about the community

    Consit was a really great company for years, but all the new changes and all the Corporate hires from Citizens are destroying what was a great company. They do not care about the little people in the branches and over work them, for the past 6 months they have been on a hiring freeze all branches have been short staffed and struggling yet they hire a new CEO of the bank and do not replace the 30 people that have left since may. It is very sad to see such a great job that many of us have loved take such an awful turn.

    Loan Processor

    Loan Processor (Current Employee) Westerly, RI

    ProsThe ability to meet people that have been working in banking to see if its something you would like to purse.

    ConsIt was incredibly boring. The work was tedious with little reward and the salary was not equal to the work I put in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay better, find ways to build team atmosphere rather than individuals. Modernize equipment, many things like copy machines falter frequently and cause work hold ups.

    Very good company to work for

    Teller (Current Employee) Westerly, RI

    ProsIts a great company with good management. Lots of flexibility and well run. Great training program for tellers and make you feel very comfortable at the branch you are located. Good package for full time employees. Each branch has a very welcoming and warm atmosphere that makes all of the customers feel that they are fully appreciated. Very easy to communicate with upper management about any problems.

    ConsCould be more benefits for tellers. Tellers also have a low pay scale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow more incentives to move up.

    all about who you know

    Retail Flex Banker (Current Employee)

    Prosbenefits are good
    they are focused on customer service
    getting holiday time off works well if you have children in school

    Conspromotions are based on who you know and how long you have been with the company
    the raises are very poor
    managers are not in branches for most of the day, problem when customer asks for the manager
    little support for employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe benefits are good, but if you are looking for more than just benefits then this is not the place for you. There is strong micromanagement for branch employees, but very little for upper management results in misuse of power.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
