    I worked at Suburban Bank and Trust part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This location has great people in a wonderful environment.
    There is a major realistic ability to move up in this field.

    Cons

    The bank was recently bought out and it can be difficult to get sufficient hours.
    Upper management can be overbearing, which cuts down employee moral.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management can be overbearing, which cuts down employee moral.
    The work used to be fun, but now they try to work the most out of you without giving you much respect in return.

    I worked at Suburban Bank and Trust part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun group, bosses are very friendly, pay isn't bad for entry-level work. Bank holidays are nice and you get Sundays off.

    Cons

    Can get boring on some days because not many people use physical banks anymore. Day to day job can get pretty repetitive.

    Advice to Management

    Update aging IT systems, give part-time employees some paid vacation, open later on Saturdays (like 9 instead of 8).

  3. "Generally good co-workers, poor organization of business activities"

    Pros

    Generally nice people to work with, opportunities for independent/creative thinking, comfortable small business atmosphere

    Cons

    Communication skills within company departments are severely lacking, hammers customers with fees and you're supposed to retain accounts somehow

    Advice to Management

    Offer more positive feedback, improve overall communication skills within the company, update software, stop charging fees for every single thing

    Pros

    Many great people to work with. Most are down to earth and work with you. You can move up if wait a great while. Not to stressful of an environment to work in.

    Cons

    No benefits for part-timers. Management are....wait there is no management...Management completely turns over every 5 years. People that have been there forever, the few that have, say what goes and refuse to listen to new ideas....IT was beyond a joke, they get back to you next week...absolutely no career path for young college kids, they just don't care. It's family owned and they do not care about their employees, unless you work at the main office, they don't know what goes on elsewhere....company will sell down the line in the near future....good luck to you...

    ps...pay sucks...unless your on top..

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like they actual work for you and make it feel like a community bank, not a chase. Please offer part-timers benefits, they are people too. Get rid of the people that need to go...If you can't accomplish the above, please sell...

    I have been working at Suburban Bank and Trust part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Besides Management, genuinely nice people to work with. Customers are friendly.

    Cons

    The management at SBT is a complete joke. They clearly practice favoritism and they don't care who knows it. Their employed family and friends will do much better than you from a professional stand point. They enjoy belittling their employees and making a teller feel like they don't even deserve to work at a Taco Bell. Good Luck to all employees, you'll regret this business move…...

    Advice to Management

    Trim the fat and start over fresh or sell out.
