    great team members, PTO is pretty good starting out and hours of bank are not bad at all.

    Sales can be a little ridiculous but they are goals that can be reached all depending on how busy your store is

    Pros

    Pretty easy and straightforward job. Decent pay,

    Cons

    Constant pressuring sales goals, constant pressure to get a perfect feedback survey. Wells Fargo goes through so many employees, feels as if not valued. There is always someone to replace you.

    Pros

    Good training and they do seem to care about your job satisfaction. They conduct surveys to check your job satisfaction and ask what they can do to make it better.

    Cons

    Sales goals are too high and they push calling people in the evening to set up appts. You are tied to one position and not allowed to move forward if you don't meet their unrealistic goal number for sales and appts. Care more about one more checking/savings account or CC/loan that whats best for the customer. Way too much micro-managing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Goals should be set according to population of area or location of branch. They use the same goals for everyone - whether you are in a large metropolitan or small rural city. With impossible goals you feel defeated.

    National company; makes it easy to transfer.

    The only thing that matters to management is your sales numbers.

    Consider other qualities in employees other than their sales performance.

    Pros

    Great upward mobility, good training, personal growth, etc. Good amount of paid time off. Paid holidays, etc.

    Cons

    The sales goals are ridiculous. You have to work as hard as possible to meet minimum goals or minimal pay out. Ridiculously micromanaged. Even the managers are micromanaged by their managers, and it goes all the way up to the CEO I'm sure. Even our district manager is micromanaged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They're okay. They are very last minute with everything.
