    Pros

    The people are nice, everyone seems to love working for Regions.

    Cons

    Tellers are supposed to push people to open accounts constantly, to the point where you are sat down and retrained if you aren't meeting your goals.

    I have been working at Regions Financial full-time

    Pros

    Evergreen week. Lots of paid time off with option to purchase up to a week more. Health benefits and 401K. Three weeks paid sick time. Lots of training.

    Cons

    Incentive goals are placed very high. You are not paid any bonus unless you meet a very high hurdle. Pay is low compared to other banks.

    Advice to Management

    Pay bonus as we earn it. The company saves a lot of money by creating a high goal, that is not met by many, before it pays incentive on the work we do. I make a lot of money for the bank, but don't always reach the hurdle.

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

    Pros

    Regions provides excellent training, however, prepare to be in training for about 6-8 weeks. You absolutely go into your roll prepared and supported. It wasn't my first job with cash handling, but my first as a bank teller, and I made great connections and felt supported with work decisions. Regions offers great insurance benefits and paid time off. The systems are pretty up to date as well.

    Cons

    Extremely understaffed, a very high turnover rate. There is a lot of pressure coming from higher ups and it's very sales oriented. Sales are pushed every day, and if you don't meet daily goals you are punished, but meeting your sales goal gives an extremely low payout. Plenty of misunderstandings and stress coming from higher managers and it causes it to be a stressful work environment. I have a negative outlook on the future of Regions.

    Advice to Management

    Give more realistic goals to branches. We lost a lot of customers due to unsatisfactory pushiness stemming from sales.
