    Pros

    Pay is good, hours are good, coworkers are great

    Cons

    Chemical Bank is making choices that are bad for customers and for employees. They're very near sighted and don't seem to make any kind of sense.

    Advice to Management

    Explain things to employees, so we can explain to customers!

    I worked at Chemical Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Branches are team oriented. Diverse employees. Incentives for selling products.

    Cons

    No sick days. Minimum pay. Insurance is ridiculously high.

    Advice to Management

    Raise employee wages. The amount of work that tellers do is too great for the small pay. Lower insurance premiums.

    I worked at Chemical Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    PTO, I loved my coworkers, loved my customers

    Cons

    I used to love my job before my previous branch manager got let go due to the branch consolidation. The person who took his place is a micromanager, always breathing down our necks and quick to anger. He would be really respectful one moment and then fly off the handle the next. I began to have anxiety attacks before work and finally decided to get a new job. I couldn't deal with Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde any longer.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to talk to your coworkers with respect. Instead of constantly downgrading others, try encouraging them. It will raise moral and make a world of difference.

    I worked at Chemical Bank part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    great atmosphere, tons of training, annual (sometimes more) raises

    Cons

    processes/promotions are slow to get to employees with so many freezes, buying Talmer and not being "Community" driven anymore has really been a downfall

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees as much as you do your customers and stop buying more banks. Settle with the branches you have for a while.

    I worked at Chemical Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My co workers and PTO were good!

    Cons

    THE NEW CONVERSION WAS THE WORST THING THEY COULD HAVE DONE FOR BOTH EMPLOYEES AND CUSTOMERS!! System upgrade they say!! You mean downgrade! They really need to reconsider the IBS system!! Customers have decided to close out there accounts due to this conversion!! Online banking, phone banking, and other changes has became a hassle for customers AND EMPLOYEES! With that said my branch alone has lost 3 employees since this conversion! So we are stressed, overworked, under paid, and ALWAYS UNDERSTAFFED!
