More Pros and Cons

  1. "Run far and fast"

    I worked at Bank of America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You receive a paycheck.
    Overtime available.

    Cons

    Unprofessionalism runs rampant.
    Managers do not care about associates, you are just a number.
    Bad hours of operation and not flexible.
    Unrealistic metrics/KPI's.
    Sweatshop call center environment.
    Overly stressful.
    Clueless managers. Promoted based on who they know.
    No room for advancement.
    Depressing building - old converted warehouse in industrial area with no natural light, gray everything, cubicles as far as the eye can see.
    Background screeners are extremely rude. They will call you and demand to call your previous boss, not just your employer, but actual boss to 'Ask personal questions about you' and threaten to fail your background screening if you do not comply. You will also be accused of lying and hiding something for non compliance.
    No trust in associates.

    Advice to Management

    It's truly not appealing to harass new employees by calling several times daily when being hired and demanded to tell the background screeners what we're doing in our spare time because you don't 'believe' we took a few weeks off to find new employment. Also, maybe consider not telling potential employees during their interview how they will be fired over metrics and have issues held against them that are admittedly out of their control. Your pay is also well below the industry average for what is being asked. I suggest management courses or a complete overhaul of leadership staff. There's a reason so many people constantly quit.
