    I worked at Credit Union 1 (IL) part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fairly straight-forward gig. Help customers with transactions. Had a great manager. Lots of opportunity to move up but I have no interest in banking.

    I am also an actor and this gave me nights and weekends free to pursue my career.

    Cons

    Sales Goals. Banking is just like retail. Have to up-sell auto loans, personal loans, credit cards. I also worked in a low income neighborhood and people were applying for loans CONSTANTLY with 500 and below credit scores that were never going to get approved. I would have a stacks of applications that would turn into a stack of denials.
