Two years later, I was rehired to the mortgage servicing group in Columbus as a temp...Chaseworks employee. Of my training class, I was one of two who were hired on perm after 3 months. I worked six months as a Customer Service Agent and moved up. I subsequently moved up into Research the year after. I worked with great people in a great department and was enjoying my job. This year, I decided to take a position with Chase Commercial Banking in downtown Washington DC. I started in March and spent nearly a month and a half flying to different places around the country for training. In May, after my training, I began working on the job and managing the loan files I was assigned to. In mid June, my supervisor in NYC calls me out of the blue and says she's had some negative feedback about me from my Sales Managers (who I work with). She wouldn't be specific about it but asked if I needed help. I said no. I had this down. I knew what I was doing. A week later, she comes to my office and tells me that sales wants me to resign. She says I'm not learning the process fast enough for my sales agent.She tells me, HR says if I resign I can get unemployment and be eligible for rehire as there was no coaching that had been done or performance review. She said if I don't resign, they would put me on warning and I would possibly be fired. So, I resigned.

Then once I tried to get employment, Chase HR denied my request and told UI that I "quit". After fighting for 2 months, my claim was denied. I am now appealing that decision. To make matters worse, I find out they overpaid me on my last check and want me to send them an additional 600.00. Seriously? I'll declare bankruptcy before I give them that money. I can't even get unemployment out of them!

Well, I was going to keep going, but it kept getting worse..........you are all right! This has become the worst company on the planet........when I started it was just Chase/then came the merger.......the control room literally shut off our computers at 5 before 11 so they could get out of work and not have to wait for us on a phone call but if we packed up our stuff to leave.........oh heavens......they actually installed a security camera to see who was leaving the floor before it hit 11pm.......if you are over your talk time by 15 seconds because you were trying to help someone you already have one foot out the door.......and if you are working in collections and the person tells you they don't know when they can pay, well, if you don't get a date out of them, you have failed the call...........place is the pits............Verizon falling their example.......they also moniter your "toilet time" = at Chase though, a manager actually called a meeting to inform us we were only allowed to go to the bathroom on our breaks...........
tampa, fl office before they threw out all of us out the door with nothing for severence pay......they also made us work with masks on after their roof caved in , they were getting sued left and right from people who had asthma and they blocked the stair cses due to water leakage plus had garbage cans all over the place............

Bubblehed738 in Springfield, Missouri said: You can't possibly be that naive! I was #1 in sales in the whole location and was still canned on BS trumped up reasons. They are trying to kill American jobs by making our lives so difficult we will quit or get so fed up we push back giving them reasons to get rid of you! That way they can outsource even more American jobs!

I agree. This complaint about the worst places to work...that's everywhere right now. The managers want to keep the money at the top for themselves. How many places have you worked that you had to bring in your own supplies!

I boycott as much as I can. I don't use credit cards. I only buy what I need. I don't patronize a lot of businesses.

We need to get back to where we are controlling things. The government is allowing more and more people into America and it's driving down the wages and making it impossible to find a job.

Dragon Wolffe in Texas said: It is true. And then you go back, they make you do side by sides with people who are afraid to stay home even though they are sick and running fevers, so you get sick. And then they call you in the conference room and terminate you. They escort you off the premises in front of everyone so that they keep those still working in constant fear of also being terminated. I was the sixth termination in a months time in my department.

With all the paperwork starts to come in you realize that there is so much inconsistency. I have so far 3 different dates of termination depending on what they need it for. I have requested a letter of confirmation for my termination so I can get food stamps for my sons and it will take weeks to get the paperwork as I will have to write in a request, wait for the response, that is if they actually admit to receiving such. I also received a letter stating they overpaid me and they want the money immediately or else.

I was told by my manager that I would NOT be eligible for unemployment. If they are going to fight it, I'm not sure we will not end up in a shelter.

They are constantly messing up peoples paychecks and then expecting them to wait until the next check for any corrections . Legally they only have 3 days to correct.

I have much more but will stop now.

Dragon Wolffe -- is there any way to speak w/ you privately? Perhaps on Skype on Gmail or something? I am going through the same thing at a different company and need some advice ASAP. It's a similar type of company so please let me know ASAP.

former employeein RB / San Diego in San Diego, California

I worked in the Loss Mitigation modification dept at Chase in Rancho Bernardo - these posts are so right -the WORST place to work -it didn't used to be. When I was in originations it was great, then my job left the site and I had the "opportunity" to go to a new dept. I thought "great-I can learn underwriting" ... what a joke. They are analyzing documents and calculating income and takes forever to get the modification done - the management treats the staff like crap and could care less about your actual knowledge or skill set, they want cheaper people so they manage to target people and fire them or lay them off and then hire new people at a much cheaper rate.....they want to fire more than lay off so that they don't have to pay severance. Then when they fire you they dispute your unemployment so you have to jump through all the hoops to make sure you don't have to pay back any unemployment. In CA we are more protected so you have to really do something on purpose to get fired and not get unemployment. So - then they send me a letter telling me I owe them money and if I don't pay them back they'll send me to collections - well I'm not sending them money - and I'm in a class action lawsuit for them not paying paystub earnings or vacation pay correctly so I called and told them to research that and close the case on trying to collect from me - the specialist is supposed to call me back. I also told HR to tell the specialist to get the name of the collection agency they are using - my guess - it's internal and I could give a crap! I worked for them for over 15 yrs - I don't feel they owe me anything except to treat people with respect and decency. over 50% of the staff were on medication for stress / anxiety and then went on disability!! Should have been workman's comp!! In this economy - do not go work for Chase - they will rob you of your sanity and sense of self worth!

Man this has been a long time coming. I knew there were many out there like me, just wasnt sure how many people felt the way I did. I worked for Chase for 3 years, starting pay was $11.00 ending pay was $11.00. AMAZING right? It was crazy for me to see people with no experience come in making WAY more than I did. Granted, I may have not been the best employee, talked alot of stuff about Chase and their policies, had all my family members close their Chase accounts. However I devoted 3 loooooooong years of my life dealing with a company who's slogan is "Chase what matters" which in fact really what they mean to say is "Chasing the people with the most money in their accounts because they matter". What happens to the elderly woman who cant pay her bills because her ssi only allows her to pay her rent? Or the mother thats calling from a store with her screaming children in the background all the while her card has been declined for $2? Or the college student that is away from home and cant purchase food because their account is currently negative? You know what happens to those people...their accounts get closed because they are not an asset to the bank. But what Chase does not realize is the majority of their customers are those people. So while Mr. Dimon is sitting on his ass raking in the big bucks and all his minions under him are raking in similar bucks, us hebrew slaves are clothesless and shoeless. In the words of Moses, "let my people go". Doesnt make any sense that were working for a multi million dollar company and get treated like were working in sweat shops and getting paid less than sweat shop workers. And thats not the least of my complaints, however I can sit here all day long complaining about the wonderful company called Chase.

The compensation plan for both bankers and tellers is getting worse and worse every year, every one I know is not making as much money as used to be. It sad because Chase has the lowest paid salaries in the industry, and the only reason why many bankers stuck around was because the commission plan that used to be decent.

What about work in mortgage servicing?

Does that pay?

I know tellers and personal bankers don't get paid much. Those jobs are not just transactional anymore. They're sales jobs. If you don't meet your daily/weekly goals of sales, then you risk losing your job. There's lots of "burn and churn."

I worked for Chase for a little over three years and am a 20-year veteran in the mortgage/securities industry.I have always been a top 5% producer but realized the direction of the pay scale/commission and work environment was not where I needed to be financially or good for my family.

Some positions might be good for folks who lack direction, need benefits and want to get started.If they can pay for your licensing or a marketable skill set/system/software take a look. Some rotating positions are modification specialists, customer service, processing/mortgage support. Most large companies are going to manage their widgets...it is up to you to decide what is the breaking point in your "economies of scale" in weighing pay/quality of life/benefits/job stability. Their focus is to not pay you $1 more than they need to...if they start seeing a mass exodus like the Mortgage (Home Loan Direct)then they might swing the pendulum the other way...but they have already gutted their customers by charging 1/2 to a full % higher than any other reputable mortgage broker who has wholesale rates and is a direct seller to the agencies. There is no such thing as job stability as many of you stated. How many of you called HR support and were lucky enough to speak with someone in Manila? There is a reason why they are set to lay off 15,000 employees.

I have some advice for those who have been wronged by Chase or are having problems with another employee/manager in any way. Don't play around with Outlook Messenger/Sametime and send jokes or e-mails to friends, co-workers or managers. Nothing disappears and cannot be erased. Don't hang out with management after hours or EVER confide problems or personal issues. You can make friends at work but your goal is not to work to make friends. Don't hang out with people who complain, they are a cancer...and if you feel too stressed then make plans to leave, don't complain. Continued...

My breaking point was two-fold...I don't take well to nepotism and managers who aren't particularly bright...and were never producers. The second was that a 7 year Chase employee moved back into our division and when I returned from a 3 day weekend he was seated by me. He was ready to cry or explode. The "new" bald manager wanted to impress his AVP and left his conscience at home. See, the man had found out from his wife that she had a re-occurrence and spreading of cancer. They were in the clear for the last five years and he was devastated. What the Chase tool did was "write him up" with an "occurrence" when he left work early Monday to be with his hysterical better half. He had just come back from talking with his tool of a manager and informed him that he was going to drive and be with his wife at the James Cancer Center at OSU...his manager voiced his disapproval and said that this was not the best way to start out on a new team or build a pipeline and he would have to write him up for another occurrence. You want to talk about quality of life? Little bitty simple minded clones think they are king sh^% if they make $100k...big deal. Make $200k a year for 15 years and don't sacrifice your morals...and treat fellow workers with professionalism and respect. I am not saying to fraternize...but be freaking human. I could not believe that he did not throw the guy out of the window. For those who have not worked for Chase...you get written up if you do not submit a "sick day" request the day BEFORE you are absent...and this applies to snow days if your kids have a two-hour school delay.

If problems continue keep a written conversation log of the issue...time, date, context and people involved/present. Also print your e-mails that are damning. Keep production ledgers...and so on. Your attorney will thank you.

Regarding STD, BWC and Unemployment Comp Chase is self-insured. They contest everything.

Best of luck to everyone in 2013. :)

So I turned in my two week notice today and let's just say my manager went off on me and said "I make everything about me". How does that have anything to do with my resignation ?! I am so happy I'm leaving this company and I would not recommend any to work here they do not care about their employees !! Beware people !

former employeein RB / San Diego in La Mesa, California

Your scenario is so true - a colleague who's brother died advised that she would be leaving to fly from the U.S. to Ireland to attend her brothers funeral. Well because her brother had passed suddenly my former colleague didn't give the requisite 24 hour notice if you are going to be sick, stuck in traffic, late to work or - your family member dies. The supervisor threatened her and she called her bluff and requested an immediate meeting with the manager and the supervisor continued to attempt to intimidate until my colleague said she would call HR, the labor board etc....finally the supervisor backed down, my colleague advised the manager that she would NOT be working for that supervisor when she returned and if she was not reassigned then she would get the attorney involved. Well - because of numerous complaints about this supervisor, the manager granted the "request" and reassigned my colleague. This supervisor still works there - acts like a complete and total b*** and intimidates whoever will not stand up. I stood up and got written up! That is the way they try to silence you. Yes - print your emails, your attorney will be thankful - especially when they start to target you and one or more of the emails are direct complaints to the site manager for unequal treatment and discrimination. Hard work is not rewarded at Chase, ass kissing and keeping your mouth shut against all the wrong doing is what they want. They do not give decent raises and change the incentive program every time people start reaching goals too often.

Abhateschase in North Bergen, New Jersey

I wasn't sure where or who to take this to, but I want to make sure that this does not happen to anyone else who works for Chase in the future. I was a mortgage banker at chase for 9 months and 23 days, previous to that I was an investment associate for 1.5 years with chase. I'm writing this email because I was let go from chase for lack of production. When I was let go, I had the second most applications in my pipeline, although in their defense prior to that my production was minimal. My biggest complaint is that I wasnt paid my commission for the entire month of November and December. The reason I wasn't paid was because their is a clause in your payout, that if you are not in the position for 10 months your commission payout goes against your initial 3 month payout. I wouldn't be complaining if I knew this, but manager told me that I would be let go and to work as hard as possible so you would in fact "get paid". I was working until 9 o clock at night to get paid. Our team was told not to enter overtime, therefore I never tried and because I was working to get paid on my loans I felt it was necessary to work late. Now, because I was 7 days short of 10 months and dint get paid. I want my overtime. I'm entitled to get paid for the hours I worked. I worked Monday through Saturday for the entire month of November and up until dec 23rd from 9-7pm and Saturday until 3. My manager lied to me and told me that i want you to stay on until you get paid. When I went to hr she said my production didnt warrant overtime, when I in fact I worked late and worked late with her and other bankers to try and finalize my pending deals. If I was 7 days short of 10 months, I guess I didn't warrant the commission, although i wish i wasnt told otherwise. I certainly Should not be docked overtime.
Also, other colleagues of mine were allowed to stay until dec. 31st, why wasn't I allowed so i could earn my commission. Instead of terminating me on December 24th.

When I reached out to

There is currently a class action suit regarding the issue of overtime. Do a search and you will likely find it. Don't give up, get what you are entitled to.
