    Full array of investment & insurance products. If you create trust with the branch personnel, they can become an outstanding referral source.

    Require client meeting notes to be posted in the client database software. FINRA is going to come looking one day as to why products were recommended.

    I have been working at Regions Financial full-time

    Pros

    Excellent vacation time and benefits
    Annual raises
    Paid holidays
    Bankers' hours

    Cons

    Too much change, and not for the better. I've had two branches close out from under me, one where I was a member of the Key 3, a promotion that I worked hard for. I wasn't "demoted," per say, as my pay was left alone, but the title and job itself is being phased out as we are all becoming one universal role. The continuous turnover has made the work especially strenuous, and I feel my value as a seasoned teller decreasing by the day.

    Advice to Management

    Place more value on your employees, and try harder to hold on to the hard workers. Otherwise, you will lose them.

    I worked at Regions Financial full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunities for overtime, not bad pay for the area, benefit options, secure work building, nice facilities, coworker camaraderie was fun

    Cons

    Sales goals are unreasonable, phone call expectations are unreasonable. The people judging phone calls get to use completely nonobjective judgment to grade calls. I received 4 out of 5 stars because I sounded apologetic but I didn't outright apologize. Also, I was ill one day and the supervisor saw that my phone line was quiet for more than 6 minutes and came to the employee bathroom calling my name amongst the 12 stalls, to "be sure I was okay." Really it was to ensure the team didn't fall below expectations for the day for availability. Illness was not understood by management, doctors notes do not matter.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate your expectations of employees personal needs. They're not robots and things happen.
