Pros: The lunchrooms are always stocked with snacks, no surprises in paychecks, fantastic 401(k), regular M-F with weekends off.
Cons: Pay SUCKS, want to advance you without a raise, health care is average at best, overly demanding for given title and wage
A typical day includes not only the basic job duties of processing transactions, but employees are expected to actively market since the company doesn't want to spend the money. Management are nice folks, but they're desperate. People get promoted because there is no one else to fill positions, not because of qualifications. It's hard to tout how great the bank you work for to prospects if you know you're lying. There are basically zero employee incentives to even fully use Washington Federal as your primary bank. One of the bartenders at the Christmas party made the comment that only one or two people paid with a debit or credit card from where they work.. That's sad. Because it's not super high-pressure sales environment and you get to genuinely care about clients, it is a nice place to work, but it's a greedy company. I've been there for a year and catch mistakes that supervisors in other branches make and make cold calls to businesses to solicit their banking to us, and random other tasks that aren't listed in my job description.
