I worked at Citizens Republic Bancorp full-time (More than a year)
Employees were generally friendly, compensation was good for the geographic area (Flint, MI), and there were fun events taking place from time to time.
Managers were more likely to hire their former colleagues from other banks than to promote from within, so it was somewhat discouraging.
Advice to Management
Management should focus more on development of talented employees and providing opportunities for career development. Most of the managers I saw hired were from other banks. Most career movement in the bank seemed to be lateral.
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Citizens Republic Bancorp.
Manager meeting, manager and district manager meeting. It was a very quick process. Asked all the typical interview questions. Was nothing out of the ordinary. Very upfront.
