    Pros

    Wonderful place to work if you're a college student. The manager really respects me as an employee and I feel happy coming to work each time. My teammates are all wonderful people and it feels like a small family. Maybe after finishing my degree I can work in another position within this company.

    Cons

    Only con of this company is that I wish I got paid more for my position. Tellers are responsible for a lot of important things and we are worth more than $16/hr.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay tellers more than $16/hr. We have a great deal of responsibility working in this position.
