    I have been working at Gate City Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They provide respectable benefits and a good working atmosphere for their employees. It is also a very community driven company

    Cons

    There is not a lot of room for movements and promotions. Gate City Bank is growing but due to the very low turnover, opening positions are sparse.

    Advice to Management

    Allocations of funds within the company could be reviewed and adjusted.

    I have been working at Gate City Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent cash benefits, sometimes, decent PTO. You get some decent benefits during the holidays. And the 401k is pretty good as well.

    Cons

    It's hard to move up. That's the disadvantage of a "small town" bank. Some managers can be micromanaging. They're also a big fan of shops, which are stupid. They seem almost stuck behind in the times. This is also the last bank to close during the day, and they hardly ever get any holidays off. It's a bank, not a convince store.

    Advice to Management

    Give better pay to your employees.

    Pros

    Up to date on training, helps out a lot in the community

    Management is not the best, does not work well around college student schedule, not much money for demanding work, not very good training in the office, procedures change office to office, often are told to "look it up" instead of getting hands on help

    Pros

    You are trained frequently, and management does its best to keep you in the loop.

    Cons

    Customer service is the worst at a bank. People treat you like a dog and not a human being. Also, having a lot of female coworkers is a breeding ground for drama.

    I have been working at Gate City Bank part-time

    Pros

    Supervisors respect and support employees. The atmosphere is encouraging and constructive. I love working with my team. The pay is a welcome change from what I am used to. Opportunities for promotion within abound.

    Cons

    I have yet to experience any flaws with this job. i have only been working here for a month though.

    Advice to Management

    Continue treating human resources as humans first, then resources. Corporate does an EXCELLENT job supporting even entry level employees.

    I worked at Gate City Bank part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful and clean building. Good pay for part time work. Great customers!
    LOVE the customers! Pretty flexible hours for part timers. Good employee benefits.

    Cons

    Inconsistent disorganized training. Unprofessional Staff. Stressful working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire people who have no prior teller experience. Provide necessary training to create a professional work environment. Providing consistent professional training would prevent confusion, misunderstandings, and frustration for all employees, especially new hires.

    Pros

    Great benefits, strong 401k match,

    Cons

    limited advancement opportunities, weak salary

    Advice to Management

    They promot tellers and CSR's opening accounts as being the face and front line of the company but fail to reword them with a decent bonus and salary. If you are going to put the pressure on them to sell sell sell...show them the benefits to their bottom line. They pushed goals and when we hit them it literally ment an extra $15 bucks or so. At times, also got the impression that some Senior managers carried themselves as though the are better then you.
