    I have been working at Woodforest National Bank full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay, good place to watch people (located in a walmart), good place to get a handle on basic teller work.

    Cons

    Heavily sales oriented, definitely a retail job, banking is an after thought, no work life balance, must dress in the style of an undertaker. Not able to use your own banking knowledge to make common sense decisions.

    I worked at Woodforest National Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good place to get your foot in the door. Will hire you with no experience and train you on everything and then you can go on to bigger banks. Decent pay and decent benefits.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. I worked there for two years and was never able to move up. Someone in management at your branch has to leave for you to have an opportunity to advance, otherwise you have to consider relocating. Monthly goals are more often than not unattainable and when goal is not met the tellers get the blame. It is supposed to be a team effort, but not when the branch isn't getting their numbers. Then it falls on the retail bankers. Expectations are too high and you are expected to do everything as a teller. There is no work life balance. You are expected to put the job before your family. If you are not management you will work every weekend and expected to be on call on your days off. Good job if you are single, but if you have a family I would stay away. The company doesn't care about its employees, we're just a number to them and if you are even a little bit of a threat, they will find any reason possible to get rid of you.

    Former Employee - Retail Banker 

    I worked at Woodforest National Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay, laid back work environment, not very busy, don't care if you're late (one dude was literally late 5 days a week, every week and manager didn't do anything), You can wonder off into Walmart for half an hour (same dude, always "disappearing"), decorate branch, monthly themed fridays, watch tv all day

    Cons

    Lack of management, drama among co workers, manager didn't really care about anything, don't follow procedures, people will avoid certain customers or forward their phone calls. Can't read a book when the branch is dead and there isn't anything else to do, yet you can sit/stand around staring at he tv, nagging people about accounts gets old, opening accounts to make goal that you know are going to negatively impact the branch also sucks
