    I have been working at Academy Bank full-time

    Pros

    Academy Bank is an up and coming bank. There is room for a lot of personal career growth. You work salary + commission so you really get to write your own paycheck.

    Cons

    Very sales based. Also located inside Walmart. Although the foot traffic is great for marketing and sales, you deal with the stereotypical "Walmart type"

    I worked at Academy Bank (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are sales incentives that make the ridiculously high sales goals not as bad. They are open seven days a week so the management was willing to work with your schedule to get you your hours.

    Cons

    There are ridiculously high sales goals each day and if you do not meet those goal you get in trouble. There is significant pressures from upper management to reach monthly goals so they can get bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Try and care more about your employees rather than your paychecks. Do not be so hard on employees for not making goals every single day.

    Pros

    Good resume experience. Nothing else

    Cons

    Overworked and underpaid. Always short staffed and management forces bogus accounts to hit goals. Bank holds teller responsible for everything

    Better training and hiring decisions

    Pros

    There is no positive thing to say other then your coworkers will be the biggest help you receive from here. Upper management could care less

    Cons

    Since I need 20 words to submit this I will just say one thing and that's academy bank in general in a negative

    Advice to Management

    Shut down

    Pros

    No degree needed, easy day to day operations, achievable goals, no drug test, no credit check.

    Cons

    Work/Life Balance, low pay, long hours, challenging customer base, 2nd chance checking

    Advice to Management

    Loan application fees and NSF fees do not a serious financial institution make. Operations hammers us for no reason.

    I have been working at Academy Bank full-time

    Pros

    You can move up really quickly. Coworkers are usually really fun to be around and management is laid back.

    Cons

    Sales goals are ridiculous. Company doesn't really care too much about their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce sales goals.
