Productive and friendly workplace
Intern (Current Employee), Hayward, CAJuly 31, 2014
Pros: corporate experience
A typical day at work involves completing various tasks: Scanning, Indexing, Filing, Checking Adjustment Logs, Checking/Auditing Levy log, helping wherever else needed. Management is great. My managers are patient and enthusiastic teachers. My co-workers are friendly and always willing to help. The hardest part about my job is the tediousness of the – more... work. The most enjoyable part is learning new things. When someone mentions a subpoena or a levy in public, I know what their talking about. – less

Employees were good, honest, and hard working
CSI Representative (Former Employee), Fremont, CAJuly 21, 2014
Pros: lunches provided when it was really busy.
Cons: a lot of work, low pay, not a lot of respect for the employees.
A typical day at work was taking calls from clients calling in and asking questions about their checking, savings accounts. Also, questions about their loans, refinancing their loan.

Monthly test we had to take through computer to up date us on regulations within the banking industries.

Hardest part of the job was dealing with so many people who were – more... angry about mistakes on their account by the branches. A lot of name calling and not very nice, but you just take a deep breath and try to help them the best you can.

Most enjoyable part of the job was actually being able to solve the problems the clients were calling about. The employees were helpful among each other. – less

Fulfillment Specialist II (Former Employee), Hayward, CAJune 15, 2014
Pros: lunches every month for performance competitions
Cons: laid off
Most memorable:

Fremont Bank portrayed themselves as a Professional and Community Bank.

They Laid Off hundreds of people from their jobs when the interest rate increased.

Without a notice from one day at work to the evening the Manager called to announce your Laid Off.

This is a bad company to work for.

Out of touch
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Livermore, CAAugust 1, 2013
Pros: ocassional free lunches
Cons: temp for life, favoritism
Here is an overview of Fremont Bank:

*Favoritism of some employees by Management.
*Cliquey teams.
*Keeping you a temp after 3 years of great service because it's cheaper.
*Outsourcing your job to India after saying they wouldn't
*Small increases in pay by maybe 10 cents. That's if you even get one.
*The company loses many good people because they do – more... not want promote from within.
*When layoffs happen, its the popular and brown nosers that keep their job while the better employee gets the boot.
*Moves you from San Leandro to Livermore without any pay differential.
*Being told you have a good chance of being made permanent, only to find out later that it was never true.
*Supervisors who can't see things objectively because they are all friends.
*Cold atmosphere
*No team comrauderie – less
