    I have been working at Regions Financial full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People are fun and get vacation days and sick time. Health benefits aren't bad either. On sit store as well.

    Cons

    They say it's not sales, but it's sales. And if you don't hit those sales, you get a write up.

    Advice to Management

    Actually help employees!

    Pros

    good benefits, can purchase additional time off.

    Cons

    HIGH PRESSURE SALES. no question. Extremely unethical behavior condoned by top management. They hide behind a financial roadmap, and Texarkana market has turned into Wells Fargo (in its hayday) atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Do not treat bankers and employees like salesman. Also, when you hire young bankers, they almost always have to hire outside the bank for management positions.

    Pros

    There nothing's good to say.

    Cons

    Unrealistic sales goals. Leadership is nonexistent. Saturdays are the worst. During the interview they will tell you that you will cut time during the week to work the 4 hours (always ends up being like 5 hours) on your Saturdays but that's not true, it becomes a 'maybe' thing and you are forced to work overtime. The pay is crap. It is not worth the stress. You get vacation days and sick days, but they like to get mad if you use it.

    Pros

    Most employees were excellent to work with and kind. Always willing to help when they could. Made the workplace bearable to work in and thankful for them.

    Cons

    Made complaints to manager and nothing was done about employees trying to micro manage other employees without supervisors title. Made to sell products whether you believed in them or not by investment department otherwise you would be reprimanded.

    Advice to Management

    Take employees complaints seriously so the work place is more conducive

    I worked at Regions Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very few, met a couple good co-workers. Good branch level relationships. Obtaining a good general level of problem solving and finance knowledge.

    Cons

    The pay is much lower compared to other banks. Absolutely no room for advancement. Upper management hires from outside. A lot of broken broken promises by management and upper management is rarely present. The company sees you as a number. I would not recommend this company.

    I met some awesome people there!

    Cons

    Worst job ever. Hours suck. Sales part of job sucks even worse. There was no room for improvement and there was no integrity.

    Pros

    Hours and paid bank holidays.

    Cons

    The management is awful at the branch I worked at. Honestly it was only one member of management. She is very lazy and complains about anything and everything (Including personal issues.) Branch responsibilities are not spread out evenly. The manager was late EVERY day, not exaggerating. And nothing was ever said to her. Things like that really turned me away from Regions. Not to mention the many times I over heard her talking about me, not in a good way, to other employees.
    The "bonuses" are almost impossible to get because the referral goal is too high.
    And the "raises" they give are a joke!! I'm talking like a 10 cent raise in a year.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to reduce the turn over rate, look at the people who have been there longest. And take a look at the transaction counts for the day if you need some proof. Don't expect everyone else to work hard and contribute when the head teller slacks off.

    I worked at Regions Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nothing, days off don't compensate for the awful work days. I hated all corporate bham locations. Regions made me hate my life. I hate this bank and all the work locations are ridiculous.

    Cons

    If you are not Amsouth, don't work here. Amsouth does not promote based on skills or work ethic or talent. It promotes on who you know, favorites and suck ups. Your manager will never know how to do your job, but will send you ridiculous reprimands via email. This is the amsouth way. Horrible bank horrible future and dilapidated outdated software. It should fail bc the majority of the bham workers are just there for a paycheck. No one cares about the bank and idiotic decisions are made at corporate level. Only one dept can place no posts ? Get over yourselves!

    Pros

    Being able to sell products and hit quotas
    Building relationships with customers and potential customers.
    Good products for the customers

    Cons

    Hours were terrible. Management was so far off the rules and regulations that they tried to get the employees to go in the same direction. Very poor company to work for in the St. Louis market.
