    I worked at First Choice Bank part-time

    Pros

    Great work environment; Everyone treated each other like family; Great training programs to help you understand your job better

    Cons

    Did not have a lot of opportunity to grow; was a fairly new bank, so management was a little rusty; Would hire 1 person to do a 3 person job

    Advice to Management

    You should hire more people that specialize in different skills. One employee may have too many job functions which causes everything to be very slow

    I have been working at First Choice Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    $1500/month guarantee for the first three months and a chair and desk you can sit at

    Cons

    Horrible management, the bank is garbabe. If you are succeeding then there is something wrong with you. Your job is to make between 200-300 phone calls per day trying to get them to do a mortgage with the bank. This bank has zero competitive advantage. Worst possible company imaginable.

    Advice to Management

    Kill yourself

    Pros

    small bank experience was nice to work for, freedom to make own hours was nice.

    Cons

    Corporate was run like a bunch of chickens with their heads cut off, killed many deals with their incompetence to get files cleared and closed on day of closings.
