I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 4 years
Decent pay for a job that doesn't require any formal education. You can start from a teller and work your way into a management position if the cards fall your way. Decent PTO. Medical benefits are what you'd expect from a private sector job.
It's called retail banking for a reason - you have to work Saturdays and you have to work evenings to make cold calls to prospects during their dinner/family time. It's all about sales. Management will turn a blind eye to "gaming" by bankers and tellers who produce high sales. Had to work with angry customers who were incensed by debit cards being ordered by bankers from other stores. Other bankers closed accounts...
Advice to Management
Stop driving up sales goals every quarter on all metrics and then wonder why some folks game. When someone produces 200% to 300% of daily goals at a branch and others can't sniff 75%, it's wrong and you know it. Fire managers who don't curb gaming. And stop pressuring branches that do their numbers and ask for more while ignoring the branches that do nothing. Start promoting managers based on skill set and not numbers...Wells Fargo2015-01-20
