Universal Banker (Former Employee) – Denver – December 3, 2013
The new owners of CBC only care about making sure the sales goals are met. If they are not met you are fired. Customers even notice the tension when they walk in to a branch. Nothing like the old CBC where the upper management cared about the bank and it's employees. The old CEO use to walk into a branch and know the employees by name. Not the new CEO or even upper management (even with name tags). The new owners find ways not to pay bonus or give pay raises. Don the old CEO always found ways to give bonus money and make the employees feel like part of the team. It use to be a great place to work not anymore. Management and HR need to pay attention to claims of bullying and harassment. It says it in the employee handbook that it won't be tolerated, but yet they turn a blind eye when someone complains.
medical better than most places.
lots of stress by workers wondering if they will make sales goals & have a job.
Teller (Former Employee) – Alamosa, CO – October 29, 2013
Typical day at work was opening and closing the bank, doing daily night drop and customer transactions.learned not a whole lot besides transactions, you were chosen to learn by how well you were liked. Management was unfair and not very knowledgeable with being able to address bank issues appropriately. Treated tellers like nothing of importance unless you had a bigger title. Hardest part was coming to work without being targeted by management and personal banker for something. I did not respect management for outrageous remarks of making a person feel dumber than she, coming from someone who had no experience in management . My co workers were awesome and fun to work with. The most enjoyable part of my job was assisting customers and working with my co workers. Needless to say we were never acknowledged for good work, no company parties, and no raises.
Teller (Former Employee) – Arvada, CO – October 15, 2013
A typical day would consist of opening the bank, counting deposits in night drop bags,processing and sales of cashiers checks,answering phones, waiting on customers, and balancing cash drawer. I did not respect my manager.(this is something you earn not something you just get because you hold a title.) I found her to be whimpy when dealing with employees. My co-workers were awesome.We all worked pretty well as a team. The hardest part was trying to make it through a day without the manager being on me.Personality conflicts. I loved my co-workers and had a lot of really nice customers.
insurance, holidays off.
there were no breaks, no overtime, no budget for advertising, then they changed the job mid-stream so they wouldn't have to give raises or bonuses.
Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Cortez, CO – July 13, 2012
Typical of a Branch Manager position of a small branch, meeting with employees in the morning to discuss issues or concerns and going through the day meeting with clients, scheduling sales calls, community involvement, preparing loan presentations and advising co-workers in other branches regarding loan decisions.
Very interesting group of small banks with loyal, hard working employees but lacked management leadership in dealing with a risk/reward vision. As with to many small organizations that lack knowledgeble leadership, egos and arrogance seeps into middle management and ends in portfolilos that create chaos.
Most undesirable aspect of this relationship was to resist the temptation to place questionable assets on the books to satisfy an agressive appetite for loans.
The relationship was ended by myself to avoid a conflict of visions that had little future.

Universal Banker (Current Employee) – South Fork, CO – July 5, 2014
A typical work day consists of moving back-and-forth between the teller line (assisting the other tellers) and spending time in my office setting up new accounts, calling current clients to follow-up with debit card and check orders, loan and visa applications, dispute research, and assisting them with the set-up of online banking. Our work environment is friendly, fun, and positive. I feel that my fellow bank associates and myself are we personable and genuinely enjoy each other's company, and that of our clients.
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Englewood, Co – September 27, 2014
This place gets a -0! I was employed with them for quite a while. I had good attendance, good work ethic and loved my clients. I met my quarterly goal and had an awesome review... One week later Community Banks of Colorado terminated my employment.
if you don't need a loan they don't care about you. it's all about the numbers with this place.
Former Manager (Former Employee) – Greenwood Village, CO – June 18, 2013
The Bank is in a transitional stage going from the legacy Bank of Choice and legacy Community Banks of Colorado into the new Community Banks of Colorado, a division on NBH Bank, N.A. The managers at the regional level and above are hit or miss.
I would not be surprised to see another sale or acquisition in the near future to help mask some of their short-comings.
