Arvest is a great place to improve on your professional performance and balance sales and customer service.

Assistant Branch Manager (Current Employee) –  Sherwood, ARJune 10, 2016
Arvest Bank cares about its customer and associates. While working for the customers I have seen a lot of change, but the one thing that has stayed the same is the attitude and culture of the company. This company really takes care of its own.
Pros
Benifits
Cons
Non-Traditional Banking Hours, shift could vary. Changing Industry

very stressful place to work with high turn over
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Tulsa, OKJune 8, 2016
Arvest Bank has a very different way of banking. Almost like they are operating in the past. No business done from Friday at close to Monday at close. Very difficult to reconcile your checkbook when items are not presented in live time or as they occur.

I learned a lot about banking through Arvest employment. However on a daily basis you are required to take a minimum of 100 calls. You are to assist the customer and be a one call resolution scenario and yet keep calls to a minimum time wise.

Management doesnt really communicate with one another to know what is going on as a whole center.

Most workers suffer from burn out due to high demand of call time and remaining at your desk seated for eight hours a day. Very hard to stay focused.
Pros
Good Benefits
Cons
Low pay versus job expectations

Teller II (Current Employee) –  Shawnee, OKMay 5, 2016
They have great Core Values but sometimes for get to follow them. The management does not look out for the people under them and expect them to figure out problems on their own.

Great people work within Arvest, however if you lose your position there they will treat you like a criminal. Even if the reason for leaving is nothing more than Health reasons.

CONTACT CENTER REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) –  Fayetteville, ARMarch 5, 2016
Great Job, good benefits, amazing coworkers and great management. The hardest thing about the job is the repetitive calls all day long. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to spend time with people who are willing to do anything for anyone. It really is a one big family.

The way this place is run is a joke
Teller (Former Employee) –  Hot Springs, ARFebruary 16, 2016
The management abuses their power because they can. My branch lost our chair privileges so we stood for 8 hours a day. The turnover rate is ridiculous and when you first get there they tell you that a lot of people have gotten promoted which is not true. There is only a slim chance of actually getting promoted. They are highly customer service focused but don't really seem to care about their employees.
Pros
PTO
Cons
Management, work hours, lots of useless training

Accuracy in a timely manner is key. Being professional and looking the part, as well, are very important. Arvest holds very high customer satisfaction standards and definitely believes the customer is always right.

Teller (Former Employee) –  Fort Smith, ARFebruary 2, 2016
The level of incentive and pay for the front line entry level employees is sub-par compared to other successful companies. Easy job on a day to day however, the level of requirements for a teller are slightly excessive. I learned a lot about the banking industry and how to provide an excellent level of customer service which Arvest prides itself in. Management was a struggle because in the amount of time I was there we lost a few and the new ones had a hard time adapting to the culture that was already at the branch so they created a whole new environment. Co-workers are great and it is a fun team oriented environment. Hardest part of the job was the turnover and difficulty to move up within the company. The environment and custom relations is highly enjoyable especially if you love the sales/customer service business. Good company to work as a first job/part time while in University.
Pros
Great environment and easy tasks.
Cons
Difficulty in promotion, and low pay to job ratio.

Experience and performance gets you nowhere all about who you know and what they want. Worked for many years and management wasn't knowledgeable or capable.
