    I worked at First American International Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Gain the basic knowledge of how to handle different transactions. Friendly coworkers or supervisors who are willing to teach you how to juggle between tasks effectively.

    Cons

    Management is poor, especially when handling customers' priorities. Constantly being interrupted by managers while customer is right in front and in the middle of a transaction. The capable employees were not rewarded with proper raise nor bonus, but more workload. Any sales opportunity and incentive were snatched by senior sales associate/managers. They will tell you to make cold calls during promotions, but when you find someone you know, who come to open the promotional accounts, those accounts do not count as your merit. Nothing good will be said in your performance report even you work hard and intent to help increase sales.

    Advice to Management

    If clearing the line is the priority, do not interrupted while customer is in front of the window. Instead, after finishing the customer in front, close that window, pull the teller to another window and handle your desired transaction, or ask the customers in line to wait accordingly since your transaction may need to be handle before anyone. Give warnings to and possibly getting rid of the ones who bend the rules and proper procedures and the ones who are incapable. Give proper guidance and raise to the ones who worked hard and willing to drive sales.

    I worked at First American International Bank full-time

    Pros

    work hours were short. very laid back job. not much customers coming in. worked in Chinatown so lunch was always different so many varieties.

    Cons

    the salary is horrible. good for people who needs a laid back job and just wants health benefits. salary wont get you anywhere in life. the management is horrible. most managers dont speak fluent english. so if your a college grad. the manager will most likely make you do everything.

    Advice to Management

    please have the managers changed. keeping management because they are there is the bank was established. but thats not how a business will continue to grow. if the managers are lazy and gets paid 4x what the banker makes.
