No opinion of CEO

I worked at Bank of the Ozarks full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

-My branch manager was very polite and open with me
-Company was about to improve employee benefits ($1-for-$1 401K matching)
-Good learning experience for young professionals
-Potential to grow into hiring earning positions

Cons

-Released after mentor program
-A lot of pressure on tellers for low pay
-Mentor trainer seemed offended when I asked questions about the company I was hired to work for
-

Advice to Management

Prepare employees who are going into their first full-time job what to expect in the mentor training program. My manager seemed enthusiastic about receiving me, but had to let me go after being inaccurately informed I was unprofessional and performed poorly with my mentor.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    I am currently a college student, and the pay was higher than at other locations, I enjoyed being able to work in an office setting, and the other tellers/front-line staff are very nice.

    Cons

    Supervisors and upper management have problems relating to employees, praise is rarely given for a job well done, and mistakes are nearly unacceptable.

    Advice to Management

    I think managers and other people in places of authority should definitely be reevaluated. My manager was very condescending to the tellers and front-line staff and it was extremely hard to tolerate.
