    Pros

    Good schedule, flexible, affordable insurance.
    Great pay for other positions. You are able to move up fairly easy as long as you do well in your position.

    Cons

    For tellers absolutely no incentives but required sales anyways. They want you to do as much as possible but never expect a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Calm down with the sales. Care more about employees needs

    Pros

    great place to grow, you get familiar with the regular customers to the point that you know them as family.

    Cons

    management is not the best, pay should be mover due to all the different roles you have to play even though you're a teller, focus more on really training new employees, still stuck on old school banking

    Advice to Management

    focus more on employees needs and the suggestion that are being made.
