    I worked at First Bank & Trust full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work hours were good and the holidays off.

    No room for growth and promotions were out of the question and the manager never would give you a good review for a raise.

    The manager need to stop making everything personal and be more professional. We are at the company to do a good job and service customers. We are not their to be your best friend.
