Poisonous work environment
Teller (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – August 1, 2016
I worked for this company for a couple of years. My direct manager was fantastic, she helped me to enroll in all kinds of courses and classes in order to build my professional skill-set, including registering me as a Bellevue Chamber of Commerce up-and-comer which only one employee may do each year, and getting me registered as a notary public for the office. When I left the company, due in no small part to her, my CB portfolio had more in-house training modules completed than any employee in the entire company, (what can I say, easy work left me a lot of time to poodle on my computer and take different classes in my downtime). I had more loans than anyone in my region at my level, multiple customers had sent letters commending my service, I have two degrees... I stayed at this job for three years as a teller and applied for every single opportunity for advancement, including completing training to become a CSR I was repeatedly told no by the regional manager. Once, I was encouraged by her directly, then she called in to prevent me from being hired. On another occasion, though I was qualified and applied, the job stayed open for months, before being closed.
Upper Management is Awful
