    I have been working at First Merchants full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers and incentives. If you go the extra mile with sales, you get rewarded for it. Base salary is a bit lower but the sales incentives make it worth it.

    Cons

    Long days can be daunting at times but if you ask for help, it's there. Managers seem to make minute items a huge deal...time can be spent in different places.
