    Pros

    Huntington is a company that cares about their customers and employees. The products that Huntington offers are second to none. Huntington continues to expand which allows for amazing career growth! Competitive Pay and great incentive plan to reward performance.

    Cons

    The In-Store hours are great for customers, but consequently require employees to work on a Sunday rotation.

    I have been working at Huntington National Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    401k and bank holidays, free checks on employee accounts and free safe deposit box.

    Cons

    extended hours compared to most banks, more and more weekends, and managemnt run very much like a dictatorship. Sales goals are the same across the board making it extremely unfair for those in slower areas. Must have a Huntington account to receive direct deposit.

    Advice to Management

    Hear out employees and set sales goals to model after how the location regularly performs rather than taking it out on employees who don't have a chance to change things.

    I have been working at Huntington National Bank full-time

    Pros

    Huntington is a very solid company. Overall, they treat their colleagues fairly and look out for them.

    I truly have no downsides for working with Huntington

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing for the colleagues and customers

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

    Pros

    Good local bank , with great promos for Customers. Decent Benefits and Pay. Good career opportunities if you stick with it long enough in the retail side of banking. Awesome Tuition Assistance Program.

    Cons

    Company keeps coming up with ways to Decrease commissions to bankers. Was recruited primarily as a Banker, but since it was a "universal role", i had to keep helping out on the teller line . Huntington does not compensate bankers as well as other local banks such as 5/3rd or Chase.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing for customers, but don't let how you compensate bankers suffer. You will keep top talent if you are more straight forward with expectations of the job.

    I worked at Huntington National Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is very comparable with industry average. Decent benefits (prescription coverage is great). PTO is very good as well.

    Cons

    Coming from the FirstMerit merger, things went downhill fast. Branches are staffed with the absolute bare-minimum in staffing. Managers are asked to run teller drawers every day and have very higher business banking goals. Business Bankers only handle deals over $300,000 but managers cannot facilitate deals over $100,000 so lots of work never gets done. The company claims there are plenty of advancement opportunities, but will never actually follow through on openings. The few openings that did come up were given to select employees without interviewing all candidates. When employees leave, management's response is never to try and keep anyone, but to hire brand new people with little experience at the lowest possible base salaries. The difference in pay is all over the board, with many BMs making $53,000/year and others making $80,000/year in similar markets, with less experience. Zero support from senior management, who will take zero effort to thank you for your efforts or get to know you at all. You are literally a number who Huntington feels can be "easily replaced".

    Advice to Management

    Everyone is stretched way too thin. Issues are never addressed by senior management, who spends all their time being robotic and never engaging their workforce. Questions from BMs are either never answered, or receive generic answers in several days. Don't be surprised when more and more employees leave for other opportunities because it is obvious that employee retention is of no concern.

    I have been working at Huntington National Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Get off at a nice hour if in a traditional branch. Plenty of time off. Equal family/work life balance. Very LGBT friendly.

    Need more training. Insurance is not good. Management is shady. You quit the manager not the job... Need more staffing

    Advice to Management

    Train employees. Hire more people.
