I have been working at Regions Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Training classes: within and outside the bank. Free checking account setup with no min. deposit amount.

Cons

There is no job recognition for the associates at the bottom of the food chain. Seems that recognition comes at the AVP level or higher.

Advice to Management

Promote associates that are competent to do the job at the next level, not by seniority. For senior/executive management I would suggest doing an audit on associate productivity in the operations department in the Birmingham area.There is no job accountability held within a certain system that is used by all bank locations and back office workers. Without having this accountability workers are allowed to hide in secrecy of not doing their fair share of departmental work, while it is pasted off to other associates on the team.

    I worked at Regions Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Learned some valuable knowledge about the banking and financial industries.

    Cons

    Horrible local management. Vast discrepancy in pay for same positions/experience/education.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people based on aptitude and performance, not randomly selected "chosen ones". I saw many qualified employees passed over for positions in favor of less competent choices, who were friends of management.


  2. "Good Job for candidate with good customer service and attentions to detail"

    I have been working at Regions Financial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best thing about being a teller is banker hours. Closed on federal holiday, vacation/sick time, and benefits. This company provides many learning opportunities and advancements. From teller to platform, platform to assistant manager etc.

    Cons

    Constant pressure to push products. Tellers assume a lot of risk (cashing large checks, handling large sums of cash, etc.) for comparatively low pay. Tellers are only recognized positively for meeting sales goals while only being penalized for mistakes in other areas that make of the majority of their responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Allow diversity on the teller side. Vault tellers, head tellers, and normal tellers should not be expected to all produce the same results.
