    I worked at Republic Bank & Trust full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Easy job There not solely “referral hungry”, yes your encouraged to refer but the nice part is your able to first build a relationship with the customer, because if your constantly being hammered to refer how can you possible gain trust from the customer.

    Cons

    Everyone seemed to be afraid of upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Definitely keep making even the newest banker feel welcome!

    I worked at Republic Bank & Trust full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Vacation time allotment each year was generous

    Cons

    The Bank always tries to give the perception that donating to the United Way and volunteering in the community is optional, however, the reality is that if you choose not to, management looks down and talks poorly of those employees. They also make sure to address with those said employees to remember that the Bank only asking them to give for one thing a year is fair and that they are highly encouraged to do so in the...

    Advice to Management

    Don’t just claim to be approachable and then pass judgement later. Show through your actions that you are there to support your team. Remember if you start treating your people better, their work will reflect that and you too will look better.

      I worked at Republic Bank & Trust full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Great benefits such as health, dental and vision. Decent amount of paid time off. Literally that is it. Insurance and PTO.

      Cons

      Unrealistic expectations across the board. Delusional management. Employees are given a calendar in December/January and asked to choose their PTO days for the entire year leaving little to no room for unexpected illnesses (some people have children/school functions) and then they are told they are easily changed when in reality they are not. If you are on PTO during the week expect to work the following weekend. Operations...

      Advice to Management

      Train your new employees more thoroughly. Pay veteran employees more than the new ones you have to hire so the every 6-12month turn over will stop happening. Understand people have families. Treat your employees like you treat your customers. Respect your employees and treat them like humans in general.

      I worked at Republic Bank & Trust full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The banking and retail side is wonderful and they offer great products. As a customer, they treat you like gold! The IT department is very helpful. The volunteer work they do for the community is amazing!

      Cons

      They are more concerned with the public perception of the company than their staff. BY FAR...the worst training and supervisor I have ever experienced in my career!

      Advice to Management

      Train your employees! Showing even half the courtesy and attention to your employees that you do the customers would go a long way! A well treated employee can only better a work environment and the company. There definitely needs to be a better training process put into place in the mortgage and lending area. The department is unorganized and overall a hot mess! The upper management may be very knowledgeable, but lack...

      I have been working at Republic Bank & Trust full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Republic has a very strong culture which includes an over-achiever approach to customer service and true care for the local community. As a whole, the company strives every day to be a wonderful place for employees and customers. The benefits offered are fantastic!

      Cons

      A good percentage of the positions do not seem to pay in line with industry standards, which is strange for the experience and quality expected from applicants as well as the level of perfection expected from employees. Some administrative procedures are sloppy and unorganized. Technology is not used to its fullest potential, causing a lot of unnecessary busy work and miscommunication.

      Advice to Management

      Explore new organizational methods and get advice from the employees that have to do the grunt work every day, in regards to organizational flaws. They are the ones who know where the problems are.

      Pros

      The best reason to work here: because there is no where else to work.

      Cons

      HR is an entire floor in the Norman office, but if you call they will lie to you (prospective employees, current employees, all of the above), and say no HR titled workers are available. The Dept of Labor should take note, since they claim that no one is ever available when there is sexual harassment, disciplinary issues, or assistance that is protected by FEDERAL LAW.

      Advice to Management

      Quit lying. I know you are a bank so this comes with the territory, but treat your humans like humans.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Republic Bank & Trust full-time

      Pros

      Medical benefits are competitive. Great place to work for those who are comfortable making decisions on the fly, not weary of all FDIC and banking regulations, and function well without defined structure. Very young median age for the organization. Mostly recent college graduates or still in college. Not a bad starter bank for people who do not like being micromanaged.

      Cons

      The high level of organization expectations of employees do not align well with reality. It's a high paced, extremely demanding, and not as competitive of a pay for the job requirements, volunteer requirements, and knowledge requirements (with little to no time to process new information). Inconsistency is the only thing constant. Employees are "strongly encouraged" to volunteer for events on personal time and it is held...

      Advice to Management

      Hire more employees so everyone isn't chronically over worked; set realistic goals/time expectations for each job. Respect the employees who work for the company and allow proper amount of time to do the job without additional "frill" assignments that only take away from the tasks at hand. There's only so much time in a day do complete everything and stay under/at 40 hours.
