    I have been working at Valley National Bancorp part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -They hire people with only a year customer service experience which is great for someone in school with minimal experience
    -decent pay for someone with minimal experience- part time $13 an hour
    -2 pay raises in first year, then it changes to once a year
    -1 week paid vacation in first year
    -2 week paid vacation after the first year
    -40 hours paid sick time

    Cons

    -awful coworkers
    -vacation must be used all at the same time, you can not split your two weeks up at all
    -no paid personal days, they also do not offer unpaid time off. They give you your schedule when you start and you can not switch it at all or request days off
    -part time is forced to work every weekend and close every night
    -considering theres only about 5 or 6 people working in each branch, coworkers sure have alot of gossip to share about each other
    -extremely strict dress code, you wear a uniform with a vest and white button down and are expected to remain completely covered, your shirt must cover your wrists and socks must cover your ankles (even in summer)
    -overall an awful place to work and would not recommend
    -they are honestly an awful bank and i do not understand why customers choose to go there when they have nothing good to offer, unlike other banks

    Advice to Management

    corporate does not understand how the branches work and set unrealistic sales goals for the branches.

    Pros

    The hours are decent times.

    Cons

    Management is rude and is very backstabbing..They smile in your face and lie on you. Management will look you right in your face and won't even say hello to you even when you speak to them. My manager speaks down to me.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so snooty, you are not better than anyone else. We all bleed red. I will make reviews on any site I can. I am treated with no respect. Shame on upper management for not coming around more to see what is really going on
