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

    Pros

    Good benefits and well capitalized.

    Cons

    Uncaring leadership. All about the $$$. I was expected to be a high performer with hardly any training even though I was switching industries. I was pushed out and offered a lovely 2 week severance package and was unable to collect unemployment. Not a recommended place to work.

    Advice to Management

    who would care or listen?

    I worked at First National Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Starting wage is half decent, you get your own space, free coffee.

    Cons

    Disorganized Training, Management is very anti-social for a call center, you work directly for the bank and not a third party so the atmosphere is stale and very directed at the bottom line and not the care of the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up.
