    I have been working at Great Southern Bancorp part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They want you to learn.
    Procedures are very uniform, so there usually aren't many questions.
    You acquire many skills and receive lots of training.

    Cons

    A lot expected of tellers.
    Not much time to take a second to breathe some days.
    Very strict on certain things, not very forgiving on some smaller things.
    Often don't feel like you have a voice.

    Advice to Management

    Take more consideration in what the tellers are feeling and thinking about decisions that affect their everyday functions.

    Pros

    The safety of the retail staff is a priority. Procedures to ensure the security of the staff and buildings are amazing. The buildings and grounds are beautifully maintained. Answers to any questions are just a phone call away; the personnel at the home office are friendly and knowledgeable. Communication from corporate to the branches is clear and timely. The marketing department is enthusiastic and helpful. The accounts and services offered are quality products and can be recommended wholeheartedly.

    Cons

    The account opening software is complicated. Bank-wide decisions are made at the corporate level and don't necessarily benefit the local community. Teller errors are communicated widely but quality work/successes are not.

    Advice to Management

    Ask for input from staff who have a history in the community. Put seasoned and successful managers in branches that are not growing. Find more positive ways to promote accuracy and compliance.
