    Pros

    has good benefits and paid time off.

    Corporation in based off of favoritism. Many branches have poor management, along with management not caring.

    Advice to Management

    if you approve requested time off for an employee follow through with it. Help your staff make their sales goals by assisiting customers when needed instead of waiting for someone else to pick up the slack.

    I worked at American Savings Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of hands on training, Benefits are Great

    Cons

    Branch Managers who’d been there for a life time have “old” management techniques. Branch Managers and Regional Managers don’t abide by the company policy. The salary or hourly pay is low. Tellers should get paid more. Very high turn over. Your work hours could be from 7:45am to 6:30pm. No such thing as two (2) 15 minute breaks and one (1) hour lunch. You work all those hours with just a one (1) hour lunch.

    Advice to Management

    Management should listening to the little people. Just because a Regional Manager, Branch Manager or Assistant Manager has over 20 years of dedication to the company, experience doesn’t make them good leaders. All listed above have Manager/Supervisor/ Boss techniques. Ask yourself, why there is a high turn over? It always starts from the top! The Managers or staff smell like cigarettes. Be a supporter of Nicotine free! Create a healthy work environment.

    I worked at American Savings Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Paid each Friday! Company has good benefits and compensation for employees who have to travel a fair distance to work. Company reimburses you $60 for parking or bus fare, which helps out. PTO is given up front, however you still have to work X amount of hours for it.

    Cons

    Hard to balance out work and personal life. Most branches are small so it's hard to try and take time off. You are paid to the minute, which isn't terrible but I've worked at other places and had a 3 minute window so if I was running late that was nice to have, or if you're leaving just a couple minutes early you would still be paid for the full hour.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good PTO flexibility, fairly easy job that you don't have to take home with you.

    Cons

    Low pay, long working hours, many branches are 7-day so you might get stuck with a cumbersome schedule that changes one a weekly basis.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people more, don't be so apprehensive to teach your employees and help them move up to the next level so they can get paid more. We already get paid little as is, and helping them get to the next level in pay isn't coming out of your pocket.

    I worked at American Savings Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are friendly and everyone is willing to help to get things done. Culture is strong and communications is better than most companies. Fun activities and department potlucks. Bank puts lots of effort to make employees feel appreciated- you can send cards to each other, post a thank you message on internal intranet, you get points for participating in programs that you can redeem for gift cards, and other prizes throughout the year. Never experienced that before, especially at such a large company. Big investment in the people.

    Cons

    Lots of training for managers but not enough for non-managers looking to grow. Need more resources in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your people because it shows. Provide more room for good employees to grow.
