A typical day at work includes a morning huddle. No big deal, but it is essentially just an opportunity for your managers to tell you that the branch isn't producing enough of this or that and need to step up the game. Obviously upper management is breathing down their neck about productivity and sales, but you can't necessarily "sell" checking accounts, and interest rates are low at this company. Customers have laughed in my face when I recommend a product and they hear what their interest would be. Again, management is okay, but I get the feeling they're only in it for themselves. The company just "let go" an abundance of managers, so in their eyes they need to keep doing something right, or they're next. I don't think employees should be afraid to work at a company. Certain accounts you don't get sales credit for, but management still needs you to sell them. Not only does that make the job more challenging, but each day it becomes increasingly more frustrating. Sales goals are straight-forward, but increase each year; don't expect to succeed in this company unless you are an absolutely SALES-ORIENTED employee and love it. The enjoyable part of the company is the culture. They have an employee volunteer council and gives back to the community. Work/life balance is good, most branches are only open until 1pm on saturdays and closed sundays, so it's a 9-5 type job. However... if you're a worrier and do not like the pressure of having to make sales, or are not customer-oriented, this company may not be right for you.
company culture, volunteer opportunities, gives back to the community, do "competitions" for sales so you can win extra $$ etc...
incentive plan for tellers is not up to par, stressful at times, a very sales-oriented environment
