Bank Teller (Former Employee), Johnstown, PAJuly 16, 2014
Pros: great co workers
Cons: part time employment
I worked at this position on a part time basis. It was very enjoyable with the co workers that I had. They were all very pleasant and helpful. The customers were also very friendly and they knew us on a first name basis. The hardest part of the job was making sure you handled the cash appropriately and balanced your drawer. I thoroughly enjoyed working – more... here, but it was part time and the pay was low and I needed full time employment. – less

Bank Teller (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PaJanuary 17, 2014
My job is enjoyable for the most part. I think that lines get crossed when certain memos, procedures, etc get passed down from management to the tellers. Overall I like what i do, I just wish there was more room for advancement within the company.

Great place to work
Part-time Floating Teller (Former Employee), Erie, PADecember 17, 2013
Pros: met lots of different people
Cons: each branch ran differently so you have to learn your position over and over, but once you knew how the branch ran it was easy to go back.
Everyone that works for Northwest Savings are people with good hearts. My supervisor was awesome, he understood when I had a problem and was always willing to help me if needed. He was always easy to get a hold of and was really a down to earth guy. The branches I worked at were all welcoming and ready to help me if I needed any help. I was able to – more... get along with everyone I met, which made floating to each branch that much easier. Overall, I loved working for Northwest Savings. – less

Comfortable job with no benefits and lack of personal obligations
Teller (Current Employee), Clearfield, PADecember 12, 2013
Pros: easy going environment
Cons: healthcare, benefits, schedule
This a decent job, but you receive absolutely no benefits if you are a part time employee, regardless with how much time you are with the company, as well as working on a schedule that is given to you on Friday for the following Monday thru Saturday week, which makes it impossible to plan any personal requirements and appointments ahead of time.

A typical day at work entails running large and small transactions through out the day for different customers and businesses.
