Great workplace to start off your career in banking
Floating Universal Banker (Former Employee), New Orleans, LAMarch 19, 2015
Pros: lots of opportunities to expand your product knowledge and help customers
Cons: little advancement
A typical day at Home Bank would be to be attentive to customer needs ready to assist and answer any questions that they might ask.
Go over product knowledge and the weekly communications in the morning huddle. Preform all duties accurately and in compliance with the regulations of the banks policies.Answer phone calls in a polite energetic manner. Balance ATM, open accounts, close accounts, accept loan applications, preform wire transactions, stop payments, order checks, order debit cards, close debit cards, get referrals, assist tellers, assistant manager and branch manager on their daily duties.
I learned about the numerous products and services that Home Bank offered.
My coworkers were very upbeat, sweet and fun to work with. They had a great work ethic.
The hardest part of the job was that customer volume wasn't always high.
The most enjoyable part of working for Home Bank was the close personal customer relationships you got to make with the customers.

Trying to forget it
Branch Manager, Assistant Vice President (Former Employee), Lafayette, LAMarch 4, 2015
Pros: Great customers
Cons: Poor upper mgmt
Overworked, under appreciated, little support from upper mgmt. The operations of the bank is a run away train, the exact definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. The weight of the world rests on the shoulders of the retail staff while upper mgmt sits at main office pointing their finger at everyone.

Not neccessaily a great place to work.
Overworked (Former Employee), LafayetteMay 22, 2012
Pros: great place to learn and hone your skill sets.
Cons: no recognition and low pay, long hours and unrealistic work expectations.
Management's drive is for themselves and not the poeple that put them at the top. They are misguided and have no direction. The hours are long, the pay is low, and there is no recognition. It is a stepping stone. My former boss has gone through 6 employees in 3 1/2 years.

Worst Job Ever
Teller (Former Employee), Lafayette, LAMay 11, 2012
Pros: learn banking
Cons: hours, bad co coworkers, worst management
The work environment is very negative. If you are not related to anyone or you are not friends than you are treated as an outsider. They do things that benefit them and not the customers. There is no room for growth unless you are a friend or relative of someone higher up.

Caring culture, but tight deadlines. Annual mergers and acquisitions keep employees working late hours.
