    Pros

    Family environment and all employees are very helpful with helping you advance your career. There are several opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Long hours, but love every minute on the job. There are times when upper management forgets to engage with their subordinates.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen and engage with ALL employees.

    I worked at Woodforest National Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You don't need a degree to work there. Tellers get hired without being a teller before. You can get alot of learning experience that you can take to a real job

    Cons

    LONG hours. No home life, rude customers and no respect nor appreciation from upper corporate management.

    Advice to Management

    Put yourself in the branches put yourself in the shoes of those who are making you money there are rude customers out there but there's also very rude tellers

    Pros

    The pros of working in the branch environment are building customer relationships and having multiple tasks that keep you busy!

    Cons

    The con was not making new monthly relationship goals or not opening new accounts, which meant no bonus.

    I worked at Woodforest National Bank full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Had a flexible schedule for a while with the option to work overnights.

    Cons

    No room for growth, salaries are extremely low and you max out of pay basically 2 years after getting hired on. No motivation or incentives to continue to work for the company.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere. Nice offices. Lots of opportunities to learn something new

    Cons

    They give anyone the "Vice President" name which makes them think they can order people around. If you do not kiss up to people, you will not get promoted. If you did not work for this company 10 years ago, you are considered an outcast. A ton of people who don't have basic people skills have management positions.

    Advice to Management

    I would give advice but the people that run the company are stuck in the1980's and are set in their ways.

    Advancement to managment available. Can be a family like setting.

    Pros

    Friendly environment, most of your co-workers will be great to work with. Good for collecting job experience, as they will give you on the job training. Just a great overall philosophy for a bank. They do offer performance biased bonuses.

    Cons

    Under paid for the amount of 'hats' you have to wear. The bonuses are distributed at the discretion of the branch manager, and sometimes you can receive little to none of the Bonus, even if your branch made it's goal, and you did your best. Have to work throughout the entire week, and over most holidays. Scheduling is done six months in advance, so you have to plan your life half a year ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your bankers more! Your company has the funds to do this! Branch Managers do not micro manage everyone.

    I worked at Woodforest National Bank part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers were nice. We had flexible schedules and there is a potential for growth if you chose the banking industry.

    Cons

    It can be monotonous and the raises are not very significant. Also the job can be monotonous at times. Base pay is also not great.
