    I have been working at Woodforest National Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Build financial experience & learn the banking world, opportunity for growth, very goal oriented, bonuses, and 401k. Also the diversity of employees. At branch level, you are required to learn everything from consumer accounts to business accounts as well as CD’s, IRA’s, and Loans. Good for experience and great if your wanting to move up in the financial industry. The employees are what make you want to continue being a part of the Woodforest family.

    Cons

    Not many cons unless you happen to work at a branch that does not have a strong management team. Short lunches if you work at an in-store location. Monthly goals are sometimes challenging to reach but not entirely impossible.

    I have been working at Woodforest National Bank full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You will learn everything about banking. Policies, procedures, and basic operations. You will open consumer and business accounts, assist with disputes, and if you’re there long enough you will learn how to open cds and IRAs

    Cons

    They hire from outside rather than within. Very low advancement rate upon highly qualified employees and very high turnover rate.
