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

    Pros

    Meet neighborhood walk-in customers that are friendly. Decent co-workers. Nice area of South Denver.

    Cons

    Terrible branch manager, low-pay, micro-management, dressing in a tie everyday. 3 Half Saturdays a month! Small office, little privacy, ancient computer system, process of making new accounts and tracking your own commissions in the stone age. Rich customers with attitudes... out going sales cold calls from sales lists, expected to call people right at dinner time before you leave for the day.

    Advice to Management

    Quit!
