    I worked at Waukesha State Bank full-time

    Pros

    Great with scheduling around life events. Have a lot of opportunity for moving up in the company,

    Cons

    Low starting pay for tellers. Seem to hire people for positions before they are ready which impacts everyone.

    I worked at Waukesha State Bank

    Pros

    It is hard to think of any pros for working at this company.

    Cons

    Upper management does not care about their employees or their employee's advancement and success. They will tell employees what they want to hear and string them along for as long as they can without going through with their promises. Myself as well as several others were promised a promotion, trained for the position and performed the new job duties for 2 years without officially being promoted or receiving a pay increase. I must clarify that this opinion is not true of the CEO, Ty Taylor. My experiences with him have been nothing but positive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that employees have other obligations outside of work such as school and family and be accommodating to that when possible. Stop punishing your employees for having other priorities.

    I worked at Waukesha State Bank full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The bank is ever growing but the company was still like a little family for me. They got my career started and helped me suceed with my 2 years there. I honestly wish I was still working there today!

    Cons

    Only con was no short term medical- which would have been an issue if I were still there since 5 months after I left (because I HAD to move out of state) I became pregnant!

    I worked at Waukesha State Bank full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Easy to move up to bank manager. I was promoted 3 times within a year. Every other week you get a full day off during the week, which is nice for running errands.

    Cons

    You have to work every other Saturday. Womem have to wear a suit coat if you are wearing pants, otherwise you are required to wear a skirt and stockings. Men always have to wear suits. Upper management can be very difficult to work with and unsympathetic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that your employees are people too, not just there to boost your numbers.

    Its a good place for a job to pay the bills, not a career.

    WSB was a great place to start out and learn.

    Pros

    The customers are truly amazing and caring. WSB is in the top 5 banks in the state of Wisconsin. They are truly conservative and therefore your money is safe here.

    Cons

    Your position can be filled by someone else. No matter how good of a job you are doing, you need to be better. Mistakes aren't tolerated. The retail side of the bank is being micromanaged by a VP.

    If you speak another language, you are not compensated for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People don't like seeing new tellers every month at their branch location. Try your best to appreciate and hang on to the staff that you have. After all, a bank is people.
