I've learned and grown a lot in the time I have worked here. I take frequent trainings to keep me up to date in laws and policies that regulate not only my department but banking in general. Here I learned to always give the extra mile for our customers. It is a very secure and stable company being the biggest local bank in Puerto Rico and the one used by the goverment. Benefits are pretty good and they can vary depending on your location and department. Co-workers are amazing and very helpful, they always make you feel welcome.
Personal Banker (Former Employee) – Panorama City, CA – February 1, 2016
I was the head banker at a location in Panorama City, CA.. This location was a bound to be shut down sooner or later for the simple fact that management practiced opening accounts for people based on trust and friendship rather than their financial background history (which is what we are required to do). I was not comfortable with this unspoken rule that was encouraged by management just to meet and or exceed quoata. I stayed until I could find a more suitable job with morals and pride. I only say this because most of the accounts that were opened against company rules and regs. did fall into a delinquent status and made us all look bad.

Good for short term employement. Depending on which department you work in it can be a really interesting enviroment. Almost everyone I knew is ready to move on to another company but that is also due to Puerto Rico's economy.

Es un empleo bastante estable pero no te permiten crecer dentro de la empresa y no son prpo empleados. Si sobre pasas las metas o llegas a las mismas lo que hacen es subirtelas mas y mas paraque no puedas cumplir y no tenga que pagar incentivos. Almenos en el are de ventas y mercadeo
It was a very interesting work and I learned a lot. I developed different skills serving people. I make good friendship with my co-workers. The most enjoyable part of the job was the teamwork and be the one in charge of the commercial accounts.
specialist (Current Employee) – Rosemont, IL – June 18, 2012
Used to one of the better companies to work for, but the recession took most of the greatness away. Still, for all its problems: issues with advancement and benefits, it is still a good place to work in. Good management and a good work life balance does it.
management, work life balance
downgraded benefits, lack of advancement opportunity
Banco Popular was probably my employer that i would say was my favorite...it might be because i was there the longest than any other job on my job history, but it was such an easy going environment that it made going to work very pleasurable...it literally felt like everyone at Banco Popular was family after a while...i had no problem staying late when asked....with that being said, Banco Popular was one of the best places i have worked at.
great benifits; vacation time; awesome management; a lot of customer interaction
Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – March 18, 2013
Great work experience. Any day was full of challenges and a great forum to apply what you knew. It taught me that I could work well under different circumstances . The management team was very good and it felt like a family. The peers and co-workers were easy to work with and self-sacrificing. The hardest part of the job was the challenges certain types of customers present. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to help some who really needed help.
you had the authority to make decisions and run your branch.
The people are good but don't expect anything more
Inbound Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – June 17, 2012
The people are great as far as environment however the pay is poor. Don't expect to get a raise because it's pathetic and you will have queue after queue added to your work load with no extra pay. The training will be continuous and expectations are rather high and unrealistic. The job is strenuous and stressful wouldn't recommend working there you don't have much room for growth and advancement.
