Bilingual Customer Service Agent (Former Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – September 17, 2017
Arvest is one of the few employers I enjoyed waking up for in the morning. Leadership was phenomenal while employed there. I couldn't thank my manager enough for being so understanding. A helping hand was something I always encountered.

Mortgage Loan Underwriter (Former Employee) – Lowell, AR – September 15, 2017
Depends on each individual...not a bad company just too many changes at once. The company stopped caring about small company family vibe and started to change to dollars instead of what the Walton's had originally attended to help the community and increase growth through respect, productivity and integrity.
Input Team Member (Former Employee) – Lowell, AR – September 13, 2017
I started Arvest as a temp. They were in the process of hiring me when I had to go back home to help my mom. They were building a new operations center in my hometown and transferred there. The difference in the management and environment at the new facility were night and day. It was a great place to work. I eventually moved back to NWA and they transferred me back to the department I originally started with. The environment was totally different and in the time I was there they fired my supervisor and replaced her with someone that wasn't qualified for that position on both a work and maturity level. I loved the people I worked with and they did have me working in several departments to help out when needed. It made me feel good about working there and making a difference.
Full Time Teller (Former Employee) – Duncan, OK 73533 – September 7, 2017
Working for this company gave me a lot of experience in money handling and customer service, as well as problem solving skills. BUT, tellers were highly under appreciated and never got credit for the good things and hard work they do. Management hardly ever recognized the tellers.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Nixa, MO – September 6, 2017
For the most part enjoyed it. Bank ranked in Forbes Top List. The bank is growing, just recently purchased another bank in Missouri and Oklahoma, some issues though.
Okay culture, relaxed atmosphere, paid time off.
"Arvest gray area" (banking rules frequently overlooked or left to interpretation), high turnover, too many alliances amongst some management and lower level employees, constantly understaffed, no sick time off, have to use earned paid time off.
Sr. Financial Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – August 18, 2017
You can kiss your job goodbye, especially if you just transferred to a new office and they decide that they don't like you. Probation starts over each time you move up in the company, and they can let you go for the silliest reason
Customer Service Counselor (Former Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – August 16, 2017
Liked sealing annuities and supplying a product for customer satisfaction. Opened checking accounts and savings. Sold credit cards and auto loans. Enjoyed setting goals and winning employee of the year award.
SENIOR TELLER (Former Employee) – Russellville, AR – August 8, 2017
The overall atmosphere is great - they love to have fun and show how much they appreciate their employees! Through team building exercises, bonus incentives and sales incentives, they give you a reason to want to succeed.
They love to promote from within, love potlucks, love group activities, great PTO (you are constantly accruing hours)
Open later than most banks, all branches do things differently which can lead to very unhappy customers
Assistant Branch Manager (Current Employee) – Little Rock, AR – August 7, 2017
I have enjoyed working at Arvest for nearly 10 years. There are many changes that have happened that have done well with the retail operations. There is room to grow here. They do not pay as well as other banks, but the culture is great.
