Mortgage Loan Officer (Current Employee) – San Pablo, CA – January 4, 2017
First Bank is a great bank to work for. It's a small community in which everyone knows everyone. I worked at First Bank for a total of 10 years and I have learned a lot. The Regional Manager is the best I have ever worked for on the retail side. The Mortgage department is a little different and lacks the marketing, tools and management to make good sales people. Overall I enjoy working at First Bank.
Small Bank Feel, Staff Members
Archaic, outdated, the lack of marketing and training
working environment is different from one market to another
Banking Officer (Former Employee) – Broomfield, CO – June 29, 2016
I work for FirstBank for 3 years and started from the ground up. I got hired as a teller, then got promoted to be a Lead after 6 months. As my degree is qualified to be a Management Trainee, I went ahead and applied for that position which required a change of market. Not only the people I worked with but also how things got done were so different. I was pretty much started fresh again.
the people you work with can make or break the whole career
Great place to start your career in business banking.
Teller Supervisor (Former Employee) – Front Royal, VA – November 14, 2016
Wonderful place to work, neat people, room for advancement. Our branch was a family style branch, everyone worked together, and made it fun to come to work. My hats off to all my coworkers as we provided Front Royal with excellent service. Many have moved on in different directions but respect is still there.
Your talents were recognized and they were good for teaching new things.
Coin machine was more then a handful to deal with.
Licensed Personal Financial Representative (Former Employee) – Woodland Hills, CA – August 15, 2016
I have worked for several banks during my tenure in financial services and have enjoyed working for all but this one. This is a family-owned bank which does not hold its employees in very high regard. The bank, as a whole, is understaffed, the mirco-management discourages and negatively impacts productivity and creativity and the human resources department is woefully inadequate and unresponsive.
Bank Teller (Former Employee) – Antlers, OK – September 9, 2016
One of my favorite jobs was my teller job. I enjoyed seeing all of my customers leave happy. If there were ever a problem I made sure to do my best to fix it right away. My favorite part of my teller job was seeing familiar faces because they enjoy when you remember who they are it makes them feel special. I really liked all of my coworkers even became good friends with a few of the girls. My manager was great as well, she made sure everyone was balanced and checked regularly.
recieved a 25$ bonus if our drawer ballanced all month
wasnt really anything i didnt like about this particular job
Professional Teller (Current Employee) – Wichita Falls, TX – December 22, 2016
I moved to Wichita Falls, TX as a temporary deployment with my significant other due to his military training. I was afraid of finding work due to my temporary status, and First Bank was willing to employ me knowing I would leave in a little over a year. The company is wonderful, and the people are even better! I couldn't have picked a better place to work for during my time here in Wichita Falls. I will miss this place when I move.
Teller/New Accounts Representative (Former Employee) – Brighton, CO 80601 – December 21, 2016
Working at First Bank was an amazing opportunity. If I could still be working there, I would be but they don't offer Part-Time which is what I am currently looking for due to taking care of my daughter. I absolutely loved all of the customers that came in and I always went above and beyond to help them with their needs. My co-workers made the job that much more enjoyable and we always worked together to get things done.
Account Processer II/ General Ledger Supervisor (Former Employee) – Helena, MT – January 16, 2016
General accounting duties, working with Bankers and Customers about all account aspects Management were awesome to work for, very supportive and plenty of advancement. Would still be working for this company but after the merger of First Bank Systems with US Bank the atmosphere changes were not pleasant and required to relocate to another state in order to keep my job plus had to re-apply for my position after I trained employees for my position.
Educational environment very supportive, great pay and chances for advancement.
Merger with US Banks changes not supportive of previous job skills.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Ballwin, MO – August 5, 2016
cash transactions, love my team that I work with on a daily basis, customer service, great management, hardest part is the unruly customers, most enjoyable part is seeing the regulars that come in to see you.
Teller (Former Employee) – Granite City, IL – May 3, 2016
Great place to work. I loved the people I worked with. I learned how to talk to people and patience. The management is great easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job was sales. When customers don't visit the bank very often it's hard to sell to them. The most enjoyable part was the time spent with great people while at work. Being able to help people when needed and a being listening ear.
Over all a good place with that being said the management is the problem
