    I worked at Wells Fargo part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Lots of room to grow; it's possible to be promoted from teller to banker within 4-6 months. -Great team environment. Teammates reach out to you almost all the time, so communication and problem solving was always smooth. Honestly, it really depends on which branch you're working at or who you're working with. I was lucky to be working with a great team, because I've seen other branches where it things were still great but didn't go as smooth. Also, even though I was a student working only 20 hours/wk, Wells Fargo offers benefits, PTO hours, and is very compliant with employee policies, so that was nice. If I were to choose a place to work after retirement, it would be here.

    Cons

    - I can't think of any :)

    I have been working at Wells Fargo part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    they train you everything you need to know. No sales goals required which is rare in the banking industry. Easy if you know what your doing

    Cons

    low pay. They don't pay per experience they pay average to everyone as a start. WF doesn't have a budget for events so team members always have to pinch in for holiday food or any other occasion. you basically have to stand all day long doing withdraw and deposits. Taking days off is not flexible (in my experience my managers are just not approving much )
