A small community bank with big opportunities
Financial Service Representative (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: family-owned community bank, great benefits, room for growth
Cons: old technology vs competitors (paper-based systems)
After working for Mechanics Bank for 4 years, I decided to take on a new challenge and applied for the Financial Service Representative (FSR) position in San Francisco. Working from 8:30-5:30 every M-F, I quickly adapted to my environment and upped my sales from my previous position. As an FSR in an office with no tellers, I would spend part of my time at my desk and part of my time behind the operations counter. When I worked the teller lines, I maintained balances of my drawers and would use that point of interaction to develop new business. I worked with new and returning customers to open new personal and business checking accounts and savings accounts, helping them to secure loans, lines of credit, credit cards and home equity lines of credit. During the times I worked with my clientele, I would review their portfolio(s), and if they showed growth or a need for a more hands-on approach, I would work with them personally to ensure they were receiving the maximum benefits Mechanics Bank had to offer. At times when I would interface with my clients, I would gauge their personal or business needs, and if they were looking to secure a different type of investment, or if their business called for a higher focus to ensure their company's growth, I would refer them to the Wealth Management department or to the Commercial Business group.

Sr. Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Walnut Creek, CAJuly 29, 2014
Pros: good benefits and great people to work with.
This is a family owned company that really cares about its customers. Management encourages growth and frequently promotes from within. My main objective is to keep my manager on top of his priorities and keep the department running smoothly. Everyone works hard but we all try to keep it fun.

Online Services Specialist (Former Employee), Hercules, CA 94574June 18, 2014
Pros: once or twice a year
Cons: we had 2 short breaks and lunch break and health ins
My job was to set up business online banking and help business customer to use it and help them if they had any problem using the product and also dealing with all bill pay customers problem.
I learned about bill pay and Business online banking and customer service.
We had turned over in our dept and never had a good manager. In the seven years that I worked in that department we had 4 different managers and sometime no manager at all.
I had good co-workers but because we were so busy hardly we had any time to talk to each other.
The hardest part of my job was when I get a unhappy customer on-line and what ever I would tell them wouldn't make them happy.
The most enjoyable part of my job was when I knew that all my customers were happy that day and I could go out of my way to be at service of my customers.

Productive environment.
Operations Specialist (Current Employee), Hercules, CAMarch 1, 2014
Pros: friendly work environment.
Cons: lack of opportunities to succeed.
My typical days at work has changed on a day to day basis. I started full time in a retail environment as a bank tell/customer service representative. I soon became a full time student and achieved my BA in Sociology which lead to a promotion as Assistant Customer Service Manager. After gaining a large amount of experience in a supervisor role I was asked by Regional Management to run our Elk Grove, CA. branch. Due to branch closure I decided to change paths and have been working in Corporate, managing business, corporate and private banking client portfolios. I hold a polished demeanor at all times, and have established great ability to connect and communicate with people and build relationships. I believe the hardest part of the job is working in a micro managed environment, not allowing me to fully extend my knowledge, skill sets, and self motivated work style.

Great co-workers, but horrible management
Wealth Management (Former Employee), San FranciscoMay 16, 2013
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: horrible management, no advancement opportunities, no diversity in management
Great co-workers, but management was adverse to change or new ways of thinking. For a Richmond/East Bay-based bank, there was shockingly a lack of diversity in the offer levels.
