-Not much room for in-branch advancement beyond supervisor, since everything is processed in the back office in Kansas City.
-Part-time employment means an upredicatable schedule, varying from week to week, where nobody except the Branch Manager is allowed to work over 30hrs per week.
-Fun environment, generally slower-paced bank.
-Every teller is actually a Personal Banker here, trained in normal teller duties, but also trained in Account Openings, Loan Applications, Account Maintenance, and Mortgage Applications.
-Poor internal support, as the back office closes at 3:00pm PST, while branches in PST remain open until 7:00pm. This means you will often have no answer for a customer's question, and will instead have to apologize and get in touch with them the next business day.
-They used to give good incentives for meeting sales goals, but recently decided to make those goals nearly unobtainable, by requiring a "package" to be sold to the customer. So, now, instead of simply opening a checking account to get in the branch's "pot" you must open a checking/savings/direct deposit/eStatement package just to be entered into that "pot".
-Compensation is alright, but without incentives, it is markedly less than competing banks.
Every teller is a personal banker (and that looks great on a resume), enjoyable work environment, sales driven
Part-time gets no benefits, relatively poor compensation, not much room for advancement, capped hours & varying schedule
