    Pros

    Hours were nice. Closed earlier on Saturday and not open on Sunday.

    Cons

    Technology was horrible. Pushy on sales. Coming from other banking instructions some of the rules were ridiculous. Most the time was spent explaining to customers why they magically had 5 credit cards they didn’t know about.

    Advice to Management

    Being pushy on sales results in bad choices from employees to hit those numbers.

    Big company, get all national holidays off. You also get to learn how retail banking and credit works.

    Stop micro-managing and playing politics and let the little guys do their jobs!
