I have been working at Bank of the West full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

benefits, the tellers were awesome, short working hours on saturday

Cons

management, micromanaging, pay, time off, computer systems, lack of training, confusing to enter sales referrals, lack of communication, no one is on the same page.

Advice to Management

Stop treating employees like children. I was hired to do a job, trust that with proper training (which I have not received) that employees could perform their jobs correctly. I do not need to ask to go to the restroom, be told to clean up the branch if there are deposit slips, pens, etc out of place.

    I have been working at Bank of the West full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -They'll hire anyone these days
    - Ummm, free coffee?

    Cons

    -No room to grow
    -Insane level of micromanagment
    -NO direction for management
    -Pay is below average for industry

    Advice to Management

    Don't kid yourself, the pay scales are very low, below the standard. You can only as staff to take on additonal responsibilites for so long untill they are over burdend. Indivdual branch management is ok, the real problems develop higer up the food chain.
