    Pros

    Benefits and holidays, nice cafeteria.

    Cons

    In the interview, you will be told that it's all about sell, sell, sell. Then during training you will be told not to product push, but to focus on customer service. Once you're on the floor, if you don't make your sales goals, you will be terminated.

    They have an extremely high turnover in the call center. They have you sit with representatives to job shadow and learn the job. Most of the reps had only been there about three months. Most new hires are placed on a 10-7 shift, but they don't tell you during the hiring process that the people on that shift have to stay after 7 until the call volume goes down. This is mandatory.

    They say they cater the training to all learning styles, but most of it is getting in front of the class and performing tasks you literally just saw for the first time five minutes earlier. Not only that, but your performance is critiqued in front of everyone. If you don't like public speaking, this is not the job for you!

    The equipment is antiquated. The call volume is super high. It's not worth it. There are other call centers that pay more and have more in depth training.

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time obsessing with the role plays.

    I worked at Regions Financial full-time

    Pros

    Good benefit package with 401(k), medical, flexible spending, optional other coverages. Offers full time employees free life insurance in the amount of their current salary.

    Cons

    "Good ole boy" senior management creates one fire drill after another. Very lax capital budgeting process and virtually no cost control and no budget for employee expense accounts which invites abuse and disparity.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to school on strategic management. Consider getting out of low production states.

    My co-workers and direct managers were all wonderful. Training really helped me feel confident in the position, and I received a lot of support and good will along the way.

    I had a hard time making it to full time, which I needed for insurance. I had good numbers and reviews so the struggle was a little frustrating. There was a manager we had for a short while that was a little much, rude to a very seasoned employee.
