    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Your team is a family, you feel valued and welcome at every branch, great pay, even greater benefits, generous amount of payed time off from the start

    Cons

    Stressful line of work, working with all types of customers, not necessarily easy to move up the ladder but it really depends on location.

    I worked at Wells Fargo part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Worked there for a year while I was going to school. Easy work environment. Easy job. Great pay.

    Cons

    Paid time off was difficult to negotiate with 8 other tellers trying to get time off as well. Nothing out of the ordinary for retail though. Rude customers every now and again.

    I worked at Wells Fargo part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great initial training. Opportunities to climb ladder fast if you work above and beyond the call of duty. As a teller, decent customer service incentives.

    Cons

    Sales goals are never ending and keep climbing. Even best employees that are regional leaders need to break their own bench marks, if not the disciplinary process begins. Low starting wages.

    Advice to Management

    Ease off on the aggressive sales push. Objectives should be realistic. Objectives or benchmarks should be equal based on job tittle not individuals.

    *Paid time off right off the bat
    *Growth within the company
    *Fun work environment (at least at the Branch I worked at)
    *Great benefits and 401k

    Cons

    *Saturdays are almost mandatory besides requesting them off or having vacation during that week.

    Pros

    the people, convenient benefits. competitive positions, gain strong customer base.

    communications on policy changes, low staff equals stressed environment and people/things get overlooked, social environments can sometimes feel like high school.

    work on communicating, and break down trust issues between management vs tellers..

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay. Benefits. Community. Equality. Wells Fargo is a well rounded company even though they have been subject to negative media lately they are making great strides towards a positive banking environment for both clients and employees alike.

    Cons

    Scheduling. Seniority. Inconsistency. Management refers frequently to the term “grey area.” In my personal opinion there should be no grey area whilst working for such a large corporation. Seniority can be apart of every corporate American job but it should not negatively impact other team members
