    Pros

    They are great at encouraging position promotion and extra money is there to be earned if you are a persistant salesman. Meetings nearly everyday helps to keep everyone informed and to help motivate every one to reach goals. Quaterly bonuses for all employees who reach their goals. Also, 401k plans available.

    Cons

    Constantly increased sales goals, customer needs seem to come second, you are frowned upon if you don't try to sell something to every customer that walks in or drives up to the window...most people don't have time nor do they want you to try to sell them something so I often felt like I was hassling our veteran customers.

    Pros

    Banking hours, clean enviornment, if you are in sales, all positions here are sales driven and quotas are almost impossible in some areas

    Cons

    Salary, health benefits are terrible now, they still require women wear panty hose (even in the florida heat), they rely on customers who are called during dinner hour to determine if an employee gives good customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with fairness

    Pros

    Lots of vacation time
    Paid holidays
    Who can argue about bankers hours?
    Employees tend to get along with each other
    Sales incentive (when you make your ridiculous goals)
    Company picnic and End of the year holiday party

    Cons

    If you aren't prepared to be a salesmen, don't work as a teller or any other position in the retail side of banking. As Wells Fargo has taken over, it is more and more about sales than ever. People have even gotten fired over not meeting their sales goals. Every quarter, sales is the only thing the management staff talk about...what are you doing to get people to open accts, etc, etc...why haven't you met your goals? Yadda yadda yadda

    Saturday banking hours, some may even be open on Sundays.

    No overtime allowed (except in January when we have our big promotion/kick off for the year)

    Advice to Management

    Even though this is retail banking, lighten up a little...we aren't having huge sales like the mall, so you aren't going to get that same flow of traffic. I know crap rolls down hill...you hear it from your boss, he hears it from his boss and so on...but really every one is tired of hearing it. We know what our goals are every month/quarter so please stop micro-managing your employees. Please understand the difference between motivating your employees and riding their butts until they want to cry or quit or light the place on fire. ;)
