Your life hangs in limbo everyday

Pros: pay, benefits and fellow employees
Cons: you are 24/7, no matter how hard you try it will never measure up to the managers standards.
Forget it. Unless there is nowhere else to go I would stay away.
The pay is very good as are the benefits.

Would rather clean the bathrooms
Credit Analyst (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCSeptember 16, 2014
Pros: the end of the day
Cons: everything
If you are working for the Credit Department...then you might as well go clean a nasty, dirty, stanky bathroom. The management is terrible....the job is boring...there are no real incentives...and no real purpose for any job satisfaction. Again, at least with cleaning a bathroom...you can get some satisfaction that you accomplished something.

All co-workers grew close to each other and we became a huge extended family. My most enjoyable part of the job was end of the month employee recognition meetings. We as a group recognized each other and congratulated the co-workers that achieved the highest performances of the past month. Management was very understanding and always had our backs.
