Longtime employees and management do not work, all work falls on newer employees who have not been given adequate training. Very cliquey, high school environment. Only plus was the incentive program, which as a new employee you'll definitely excel at because you're the only one working! Be ready for long lines of customers while you and those customers hear coworkers hackling in the back.AWFUL work environment.
Management lacks maturity; high turnover rate which they incorrectly blame the employees; child-like, cliqueish working environment with hostility. The orientation is very motivating and promises a very good working environment, but it isn't. The pay and benefits are decent but not worth what you have to put up with from the management. Seriously, the high turnover rate says it all.
In house mortgage processor (Current Employee) – Abilene, TX – October 9, 2017
This company is aweful. Horrible management especially in the in house mortgage processing section. Frequent turnover for a reason and pay is insulting for the work you do. Any positive reviews were written by management at First Financial trying to cover up bad work enviromant. No advancement opertunities and employees overworked and underpaid. Clique mentality forces good employees to leave and not be acknowledged for the work they do

Personal banker (Former Employee) – Abilene Texas – May 7, 2014
If you like making friends, and hanging out with your co workers then this is NOT for you. First of all, you're not allowed to associate with coworkers outside of work, as it is "unprofessional". Secondly, be ready to spend major cash on your wardrobe because blazers, high heels and nice dresses is all you are allowed to wear; as it is not "business casual" it's just business. Management is terrible, you will catch several mistakes they make, then get blamed for it afterwards. So there is no such thing as duel-control with this place, if you are familiar with banking terminology it is a MUST!! Oh and last but not least, your manager will keep tabs on every single move you make, every outage in your teller work and drawer, every conversation, every email. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE WATCHED!!!!!
Gossip, two-faced people, horrible management, long hours and sorry co-workers
Great hours 8-5, no weekend. Great place to work if you are needing a job between jobs. No room for advancement. FTS is a shell company for First Financial Bank. FTS management are bankers or yes men that no longer can move up in FFIN so FTS was created as a dumping ground for the bad golfers. Pay is great for entry level, best place to work if you have NO Experience. If you know anything about your job from real world, you will be looking for another job within the year, Only the dead beats stay and they are running the show. First financial uses FTS as the hired help. Working with bankers like working for an adult day care. I seen temper tantrums by "men" wearing watches that cost more than my car. If you are a drama queen, you will fit in and most likely move on up. Just laugh at the jokes and don't use any common sense, not only will you fit in, hell, they will make you management. A big plus about working for FTS, they don't expect you to know anything about your job, most management are watching "how to videos" to fix the issues they created. No certs necessary and if you do get one, don't by a house, you will be moving to the big city. Again, great job for resume builder. When interviewing, use the phrase "My Pleasure", and look good, that is the most important criteria for most bankers. And a small side note, if you are looking for a new spouse, this is the place for you, inter department hookups are excepted, especial between the officers and the hired help. Not a bad gig if you are looking to trade up for most working class.
Gosip, Inter department hookups, Easy job, just look busy
Management vendictive, gosip, political (Bank environment)
