Very ethical company with a sound management structure.

CoreFirst Bank and Trust can be commended for how their employees are treated. Training is current, ongoing, and mandatory. The managers are compassionate and encouraging, and the sales team do their best to support one another. However, compensation is lacking, especially in the form of benefits, and there is virtually no opportunity for advancement.
The most difficult part of the job is trying to sell the bank and make our brand known with no marketing support from the home office in Topeka, Kansas.
The most enjoyable part of the job are my coworkers and my customers. CoreFirst Bank and Trust customers are very loyal and easy to develop friendships with. I do enjoy the daily interaction with my customers.

I have had 3 really bad jobs working for bad employers before and working at Core First was one of them. I worked in their call center and about every 6th call (on average) I received throughout a typical day was a verbally abusive, belligerent customer. Managements attitude was "well, its part of the job and you just have to deal with it"...... Hmmm, well, NOT ME, I wasn't paid enough to put up with verbally abusive customers. No understanding or support from management, in regards to fielding calls like that in the call center. Managements stance was "the customer is always right", WRONG. The customer is not always right when I am being cussed out on the phone on a day to day basis because they are mad that their account is overdrawn, or the bank did this or that to them, ect. Needless to say, I worked there less than a year before finding a great job that I enjoy. So, if you want to deal with rude complaining customers daily; non caring management; big bank, good ole boy mentality then a job at Core First is just the job for you, especially in their call center.
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – Topeka, KS – April 23, 2014
When my employment began, I thought that I would be able to advance quickly. However, hiring limitations were put on my manager. We never had enough associates for the branch, so my manager and I, as well as another employee, had the responsibility of being the main ones to run the branch, with rarely any kind of reprieve. Therefore, my attempts to learn more in order to advance were severely hampered. I also felt that there was a lot of favoritism with the employees.
