    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.

    Loosen up.
