Bank Teller/ Vault Teller (Current Employee), Saint Paul, MNDecember 19, 2013
Pros: long term customers
Cons: not a lot of teller(s) behind the teller line
I enjoy working with my customer at Western Bank. What I enjoy the most is to help them get the help they need and find the answers to their questions. I love working with all of my co-workers because we all are team players and we help each other out a lot.

Teller (Former Employee), Clovis, NMSeptember 23, 2013
Pros: hours, customers
Cons: worked through lunches, gossip, management
Enjoyed the customers and working hours. Management was not good. Hired outside rather than train inside employees, so not much room for advancement. Alot of gossip there, everyone talks about everyone.

Great place to work whil Western Bank
Senior Commercial Loan Assistant (Former Employee), Klamath Falls, ORJuly 16, 2013
I worked as a Senior commercial Loan Assistant for Western Bank up until they merged with Washington Mutual and then I transferred to South Valley Bank.

Again, Western Bank had a small town bank feel, but was not that way once the merger happened.

I enjoyed very much working for Western Bank, but did not like the "big bank" feeling of Washington Mutual so left when the merger happened.

Some of my clients and co workers followed me to South Valley and I enjoyed working with them until my job elimination from Washington Federal (formerly South Valley Bank) after 15 years.

New Accounts / Consumer Loans (Former Employee), Grants Pass, ORJanuary 26, 2013
Pros: community service, summer picnics, christmas party, and bonuses
Cons: low pay, and health care increased more than our raises
Ran a teller window, balanced the ATM, Balanced the vault, and opened new accounts, processed loans.
I learned everything about banking and government regulations, learned to evaluate credit reports and customer accounts.
The management was strict but good.
Co-workers seemed to get along and help one another.
Most enjoyable was helping my customers.
The hardest was being spread too thin and not being able to help my customers.
