So I was laid off 2 months ago due to the company not doing great, now I’ve been interviewing and finally received a job offer. The dilemma is that there are a few other companies I’m in late stages with that have better comp/benefits/PTO/value alignment. Have you ever accepted an offer since you need the money and insurance and still continued interviewing? Ethically, I feel wrong, like I’m “cheating” if I accept and still entertain other roles. What would you do?

I found myself in the job market after a layoff in March and have been diligently looking for new opportunities since. With a solid six-year background as a Senior Financial Analyst and Consultant, complemented by PMP and Scrum Master certifications, I bring a wealth of expertise to the table. However, the current job market is notably competitive. I’m curious if others are experiencing similar challenges in finding employment.

Good work/life balance , which is why I gave 1 star
Where do I start... The pay is terrible. You can get paid a higher hourly wage if you work at a fast food restaurant or a retail store for entry level positions. They don't want their own employees to have better opportunities or grow within their company. They'll give you a "courtesy" interview if you try to move internally within the company, but getting hired is a completely different story. They don't see it as advantageous to hire within, and rather waste time/money on external candidates. I love how their buzz words for 2021 is "diversity, equality, and inclusion". First of all, many of the leadership roles are held by old, white men. Walk down the halls in the corporate office, and I'm sure you'll find a bunch of white men sitting in their offices. One question I would love to have answered is if you really believe in diversity, equality, and inclusion, why have ever single one of your Presidents and CEOs been old, white men since being founded in 1855?5

There are many great people who work in the branches. Most branch colleagues are supportive and provide help when needed. The company is good about respecting a fair work life balance as well as there are understanding if a personal need arises. Dollar Bank has a good training department and provides a solid basic foundation in banking operations.
There is not any communication between departments and no consistancy in getting the correct answer to policies and operations. Qualified women are consistantly passed up for advancement by men. There are few opportunities for career growth and advancement between departments. Dollar Bank is a good entry level bank to learn the basics but it is not a good move for a career women who is looking to stay and grow with the company.2

Most people are very kind. High employee retention rate - a good number of people have been with the bank upwards of 15 - 20 years. Great place to start off and learn. For the most part there is an above average work life balance.
Slow to change and struggles to keep up with technology. Salaries are lower than industry average, but is made up for with job security. Career growth is definitely possible but it does take time and a lot of patience.

Work life balance is great. My opinion matters. Growth is very important.
Branch life was difficult. Back office and branch experience is completely different.1

Work Life Balance Customer Focus Team Atmosphere Regionals are easy to communicate with and talk to. Contests and camaraderie are something that our whole team looks forward to! Overall I have enjoyed my time thus far at Dollar Bank. 401k better than anywhere I have worked in years.
Pay is lower than the industry standard. However for a good work/life balance illHowever for a good work/life balance illHowever for a good work/life balance ill trade a few grand for reasonable goals and seeing my family. Technology is antiquated though major changes are happening so this is a bit neutral.3

The people and culture were fantastic, good benefits and plenty of time off. Good work life balance. Not a lot of turnover
Dedication to.old values seemed to.diminish as the years rolled by. More emphasis on sales versus service. Became like all other banks.1
