Various positions enabled for great ways to branch out into other roles.
Pros: great opportunity to learn more than one role through lateral role transition or training courses, wide range of great customer base, amazing benefits package.
Cons: terms for advancement led to dissolution of teamwork due to high competition.
As a Personal Banker, I worked inside a grocery store branch so the atmosphere had constant traffic and commotion, making for every day to be different than the last.
We assisted members with teller transactions, account management (opening closing or adjusting accounts), and loan applications for small lines of credit.
The Firstbank team was absolutely great in ensuring we always had a thorough knowledge of what was required and assisting in further development in skills.
The hardest part of the job was advancing into management, despite having the required skill set. Created a competitive work environment when multiple coworkers went for the same advancement.
I enjoyed being able to move into many different roles while starting my career path in banking. This gave me the ability to learn the different sides of the required roles to ensure a bank operated smoothly.
