    I worked at Zions Bank

    Pros

    Great benefits! Where else can you get full benefits working for 20 hours a week. Fantastic flexibility for college students and pay above average for college students.

    Cons

    Run the other way if they want you to split your time between the teller line and the personal banking desk. they send you to training to open accounts and do loans, but then panic when there is a line in the lobby, so they want you at the teller line, so you can't retain anything you learned in the account side of your training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your people to learn personal banking by giving them time and mentoring to do their job before placing employees in the uncomfortable position of being in front of a customer and not knowing how to open an account or do a loan. Felt thrown to the wolves.

    I have been working at Zions Bank

    Pros

    Team focused approach. Large enough to take care of most client needs, small enough to make decisions locally.

    Cons

    Regulations have made it harder to get things done.

    I have been working at Zions Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers in may department are great, Flexible school scheudling

    Cons

    Managers will always low ball you on pay then turn around and pay someone more who had no banking experience. H append in 3 departments (yes i did ask for more and rejected offers because of it) Zions doesnt really compete in products. Zions declines almost everyone on credit products. Zions put themselves first and employees last in some occassions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to acknowledge your long time employees and not just the new ones.

    Pros

    Very stable company. at no point have I ever felt like I was going to be laid off. Very involved witht he community

    Cons

    Cares more about people having degrees instead of experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who have the experience that will make them successful instead of hiring people just because they have their degree.

    Pros

    Paid holidays off
    People you work with is your family

    Cons

    " It's who you know" nothing to do with how hard you work, how many years you have been there and how great you do your job!
    The pay is horrible, unless you start now with no experience. But when you have been there 20+ years and get .05 cent raises!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the people that run the branches and take care of the customers!
