very bias company
Bank Teller (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLSeptember 15, 2017
the management at the branch was every man for themselves. glad i left. Don't treat you fair unless you are in the in crowd. if management was better and they took the time to carefully screen the employees they would be okay. other than that the business is fine

horrible job
Retail Banker (Former Employee) –  Huntington, INSeptember 15, 2017
Manager was mostly never present. They weren't flexible with my school schedule. Very slow-paced environment. I learned a few things from Woodforest , but I wouldn't recommend anyone to work there.

Not a career path at all
Retail Banker (Former Employee) –  Romeoville, ILSeptember 14, 2017
Only 5-7 members run this bank in the Walmart locations. No direct advancement opportunities. No flexibility. Great for learning the basics to banking but not a career path

RETAIL BANKER (Former Employee) –  VirginiaSeptember 11, 2017
don't expect much. Customers are best part of job but having all the tools to do your job to mnmgment satisfaction...another story. Most who do what they supposed to either eventually leave or get let go.
Pros

Stepping Stone Only!
Retail Banker II (Former Employee) –  IndianaSeptember 4, 2017
If you are looking for an "in" for the banking industry this is a good one. I wouldn't go in to it thinking of it as a career. Unless your dream job is to work retail hours for the rest of your life. You will never have a great home/life balance working at Woodforest. That is the one thing that keeps them afloat and sets them apart, so the hours aren't going anywhere. Management only cares about numbers. Everyone is expendable. They believe they are losing people due to training, but it's a double edge sword. Branches can't train because they are short staffed, but they are short staffed due to ridiculous demands and abrupt (and a lot of times inane) policy changes. A pro is the work environment if you are in a good branch. Coworkers can make or break the environment. You can get closer to customers than you would at a traditional bank, and that can make your day better as well. It's more informal than a traditional setting which I loved. Advancement opportunities are there if management likes you. When a position opens, most of the time, upper management had already approached someone to fill it. There isn't much fairness when it comes to promotions.
Pros
Laid back environment, coworkers
Cons
Hours, management, ridiculous demands

New Challenges Each Day
Retail Banker (Former Employee) –  Macedonia, OHSeptember 1, 2017
Working at Woodforest is a great place if one enjoys challenges that are new each day. Seldom would there be more than a few days without new procedures or policies. For exciting times in a bank environment, Woodforest is an excellent choice.
Pros
Regularly know hours
Cons
Constant changes in policies

Management just care about numbers . They hired people that want the employee to kiss there butt. Not flexible with schedule it's there way or no way. If you dont have a life this would work for you . Only one weekend off a month . Pay is horrible because you have to do everyone job . No recognition for hard work individually.
Pros
Job security
Cons
Management, pay, lack of recognition, schedule

Productive and Very Fast Paste
Retail Banker (Former Employee) –  Seneca, SCAugust 30, 2017
I would say working at Woodforest it gives you a brand new insight on things and how to work as a Personal Banker and as a teller all at once. It gives you the ability to see if you really got what it takes to be a Retail Banker.

High demand, stressful, no flexability
Branch Manager (Current Employee) –  OHAugust 28, 2017
I have worked for the bank for over 10 years. In the beginning I loved this company!! Over the years as things have grown, and changed they now do not value there employees and we became just a replaceable number. the hardest part of the job were the high individual goals, long hours and more often than not working 7 days a week. No work life balance and unwilling to work with their employees to create a better work life balance .We were also made to know ever aspect of the bank with only online training. THe best part of the job was being able to go above our customers expectations.
Pros
job stability provided you can avoid DA, and have no life
Cons
everything is micro managed, no flexability.

Retail Banker (Current Employee) –  Silvis, ILAugust 25, 2017
Woodforest National Bank provides a great working environment with opportunity for advancement for those who seek it. However, training is ill-financed yet the amount of behaviors or actions that can result in termination are so immense that the balance between enjoying the workplace and being timid about losing your job is shifted in an unfavorable direction.
