    I worked at The Provident Bank (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most coworkers were friendly. If you're looking for a steady paycheck with reasonable benefits and its not so bad.

    Cons

    Very old school banking. Not as up to date with technology as other bigger banks are.

    I have been working at The Provident Bank (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoy my job. I'm mostly operation oriented so I sometimes struggle with the sales aspect of the position, but the sales goals are way less ridiculous than other well known banks, so it isn't unreachable.

    Cons

    In my branch there is a lot of unnecessary drama which affects the work environment. It causes stress which makes you not want to go to work and its hard to enjoy yourself and get through the day. There are issues with management and communication but thankfully not all locations are like this. I'm only part time and am expected to work as if I am full time. I am there 6 days a week just like the full timers, but never make more than 29.5 hours a week and the pay really isn't worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect. Don't set rules that you can not fallow, aka lead by example. Realize the difference between your part timers and full timers.
