Bobby in Buffalo, New York said: Retail Banking in general is a horrible industry. Especially one like Chase that is so sales orientated. All they care about is working you to death until they get every last number out of you.
OK now I come from a retail industry that required situations that you would sometimes have to jiggle between the phone and two and or three customers at the same time and always did extremely well. Now working in a bank is probably not that fast, however when I went to the group interview for JP Morgan the person passing out the information in the training class informed us that even after training and so fourth that there are sales goals that must be met.
Now clearly JP Morgan is not going to open branches in areas that they are not going to generate enough revenue, but I am sure some branches more people do diffrent approaches to banking. So for example like in the Downtown Houston branch, I seriously doubt there is a large volume of people coming in opening checking accounts and almost any other banking done there is all relationship banking. I have also heard that being brought on a team they also give a list of customers to contact, to bring over I guess to your sales force in essence maintain them as your personal contacts and/or customers. On average is it moderatly easy to meet the sales criteria or does it require alot more umph.
