    I have been working at Bank of the Ozarks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Currently there are no sales goals for teller/CSR, which elevates the pressure on the tellers. Fair paid holidays and vacations. Opportunity to be an universal teller who can do both teller and CSR job roles. Procedures and information are readily available when presented with a task that may be unfamiliar.

    Cons

    High turnover rates that negatively affects current staff and job efficiency. Varying management styles can be challenging to accommodate to. Policies and procedures aren't consistently followed creating confusion for staff. The "customers' are always right" despite policies and procedures. Lack of employee recognition. Job advancement is not always fair despite measurable hard work and dedication. Pay rate is median compared to local competition.

    Pros

    Pay is okay depending on the department your in. Good 401k. No waiting period for paid holidays. Three free Bank of the Ozarks shirts that can be worn with jeans. Headquarters looks nice.

    Cons

    1st thing there is not a lot of training for positions that require training in order to be accomplished. People act like giving you the correct training will make them loss their job. Hard to get advancement with no training. Any training they do provide is the bare minimum. Racism is a big problem at this bank. They are not as diverse as they claim to be. Managers love to be sucked up too as well. I wouldn't recommend this bank to anyone not even my worst enemy.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking at the color of a person's skin as a hiring factor, hire more minorities and Train your employees better.
