Fun culture but hard working
Teller (Former Employee), Findlay, OHApril 17, 2014
Typical day would be to do teller duties. Cash handling and customer service. Cash handling is very important in this job, as it is in any job. It is a big responsibility and is taken seriously. In this job and in others i have learned that every action that we take we are responsible for a reaction if there is one. This is when we take everything that we do very seriously and make sure we do it correctly every time. The management is very helpful if need be and were very nice. As well as the co-workers I worked with at the bank. If I wasn't sure about something they were there to always help and show me the right way. The hardest part about my job there was making sure that there were no mistakes with the customers money and their accounts. I enjoyed working their and learning about the responsibilities that a teller has everyday.

Mortgage Officer (Current Employee), Athens, ALJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: very lenient monthly budget for taking clients to lunch, golfing, sponsoring broker opens, etc

My typical days consists of following up on applications in my pipeline, calling realtors to take to lunch or go visit at their office. See if any realtors would like my signs placed in the yards of homes they have listed. Constantly asking for referrals and thinking of better ways to market myself each and every day

Financial Center Manager (Current Employee), Greenville, SCNovember 27, 2013
A typical day at work includes helping each one of my employees become the best that they can be. And, also interacting with each client like they are the only one in the world and listening to them in order to meet their financial needs one by one.

I have learned a lot in this role about people in general, and have enjoyed each one of the people that I have managed. Each one has taught me something.
