    Pros

    This job offers great experience for those who want to get their foot in the door with banking. You don't take work home with you. Bonus opportunities are $20,000 a year (but almost impossible).

    Cons

    Being on the phones helping people wouldn't be so difficult if you could actually help them. The problem is management wants you to ignore the bad calls and focus on the good calls. When 50% of your calls are not opportunities, how can you be at a expected 75% referral rate? Its things like this that you WILL get tired of. Your voice will be heard but NOTHING will happen.

    Advice to Management

    Get off of cruise control and lead by example instead of agreeing to what mid and upper management says. If you listen your employees calls all day and notice a lack of quality referrals, voice the concern.

    Pros

    Great training and benefits. Company makes a sincere effort to be a long lasting and well managed banking institution.

    Cons

    This is one of those jobs where you do the exact same thing from day one until retirement. It is good for people who are ok with that but may be hard if you need more stimulation.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain good retirement programs and do not cut them during economic downturns as this is very de-motivational and caused me to think about leaving the company.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, friendly coworkers, active environment, chance to help customers with financial needs, potential for growth, felt like immediate management cared about their employees, many good memories from my experiences.

    Cons

    Constant push for sales & points toward quarterly goals, not customer oriented-business model is product oriented, corporate practices encouraged dishonest practices, high pressure to perform, public shaming for failing to meet goals, nasty severance practices

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like humans, not capital, treat customers like clients, not numbers. Employees recognize that when regional managers get $50,000 bonuses, district managers get $5,000 bonuses, store managers get $500 bonuses, and the rest have the opportunity to get a $5 gift card that they're not really serving a meaningful role in the overall scheme of corporate structure.

    Pros

    The pay was decent, You had vacation time upon hiring. EVERYTHING else sucked. No reason for me to stay with the company at all. If it wasn't for the crazy sales goals more employees would stay.

    Cons

    You have impossible sales goals The worst job I have ever had, management only cares about numbers not the customer, making you try to sell products on every call even when won't benefit from the product at all.

    Advice to Management

    Don't push employees to sell products that won't benefit customers.

    Pros

    The people are very good that you work with everyone gets alone well and the environment is professional

    Cons

    The management is good at telling you what is expected but yet they do nothing at all but sit in there desks and they also hire people they know and are kin too and give them the hire paying positions

    Advice to Management

    Stop being bias and give employees positions based on their experience and how long they are they Also get off your butts and show the employees the correct way to do things instead of having someone train them that's been with the company for 2 weeks
