    I have been working at First Commonwealth Bank part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good first experience in customer service and banking for someone who has never previously had any. Customers are also easy to deal with.

    Cons

    First Commonwealth employees and management can't help their new people learn and grow. Everyone has their own way of doing things, which means there is no one right way to do something. As well, the structure they hold is terrible. The FSS position is advertised to deal with a little bit of everything in the retail banking industry. As you attempt to learn these aspects, you're not going to have much help around you...
