    I have been working at BB&T full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They start you with 10 vacation days plus 10 paid federal holidays off and give you an option to purchase up to an additional week of vacation. There's a free employee health clinic that's separate from you're health insurance. No copay or deductible, and they even give you free prescriptions. Of the banks that have tried recruiting me, BB&T has a higher base salary. The company minimum wage is $15! The department executives are very approachable.

    Cons

    Being in a difficult branch can make it difficult to advance your career. No opportunities to earn incentive bonuses. Some of the processes are outdated. Also certain departments have zero diversity (I'm not sure if that's just by coincidence)

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more diversity in all departments and job functions. There should be opportunities for self-starter employees, who have a desire to advance, to be paired with a mentor


  4. "Customer Service Representative"

    I worked at BB&T part-time

    Pros

    Management was nice and willing to help. Benefits were good also.

    Cons

    With the bank so concerned with profit, they regularly would transfer whole departments to different markets without warning. The work was time sensitive and training was more trial and error than consistent procedure.

    Strong sense of community among coworkers and clients. In house training. Growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Often too goal driven. Inconsistent branch procedures/practices.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate training is extensive but one -on-one in branch training seems a bit limited.

    Pros

    Friendly staff with good hours and very clean offices. Very easy to communicate with upper staff and colleagues. The office hours are fair.

    Cons

    Not the most up to date systems. The systems for scanning your work to the back office is out of date as well as the drive thru systems in some locations
