Does anyone know what the salary range would be for a pay grade 601 at Chase Bank?

Chase----away customers in columbus, Ohio said: What was it that you said before? Oh, that,s right: "Of course it would be a pathetic person that would reply to my comment, naturally". I also see that spelling and grammar are not your strong suits. But being a banker for Chase only requires a person who has no other options in life, so I'm sure you fit nicely. You must be the pride of the trailer park. Now go work the lobby...

I can't believe people have time to go back and forth to put one another down. Move on...is this arguing worth it? Blow off steam at the gym instead!

What matters is who has Chase wrongfully pushed out or fired? Watch out for the evil Chase management who will lie to save their tails. Come forward the law is on our side. Contact me at DOWJONESUP@YAHOO.COM I am greatful to see emails from you in my box. Keep 'em coming! I know you are out there!

jay in New York, New York said: If you want to be a banker, Chase probably has the best incentive plan compared to the other large banks... You can easily make 30K extra on top of your base...

As far as the second part, it's mainly measures your consistency... Think about sales when you answer the second part.

Do you work with Chase? I would be very soon starting to work with chase and really worried about my decision after reading so much bad about chase

Sounds like you made your decision, if you talked to other banks dont burn your bridges with them. The one thing you should've looked at is how often Chase is looking for PB's. The company is a revolving door, the hire and fire like it is going out of style, or people leave. People are not getting promoted like they want you to believe. Good luck, if you are an attractive female you should have no problem, sorry to say that but that is how they work there.

I worked for Chase and Bank One as a banker and in management. I am returning to the bank after taking time off to have a baby. I am so greatful to be able to come back to such a great company! It is a sales position and you can make great money! I think many people leave and turn over is high because sales is not for everyone. If you are a hard worker and use the tools they give you, you will do very well. I worked for the bank for almost 6 years before I left and I did work extremely hard, but I also did very well. Location plays a big key too. I did work as a sales coach in the West Region for a year and have been in over 60 branches, some that were definitely busier than others. The point I am trying to make is that there are also good sales people making good money in slower branches. If you like people and can help them out, while looking for other opportunities, the banker postition is for you. That is pretty much what you do all day long, help people, then look for other ways to help like how is your mortgage rate? Do you have an old 401K out there? Let me show you how to pay your bills online, it's free! Do you own your own busienss, etc. I also know that money is a stressful thing for a lot of people so you do have to deal with some frustrated people from time to time. Most people hate fees, I do too! If you listen to them and try to help them out or understand where they are coming from, they appreciate that. We all deal with difficult people from time to time, that happens in every job out there. I think the baker job gets a bad wrap because it is a very stressful industry. There are so many awful sales jobs out there, try selling postage meters or copiers with no leads! Customers walk in and we try as bankers to help them and look for opportunities. It is not rocket science! As a former and now returning employee, I again think it is a great job and again, just not for everyone!

Luv2Run, It certainly sounds like you must love the taste of Koolaide. It's a clear sign of management to talk up a firm that is cut throat and backstabbing to their loyal hardworking employees. Yes, If your in management and back the corporation no matter if you have to lie. As management it's almost a unspoken rule. I have never in my life seen such a nightmare. It's a terrible place to work and I would never recommend it. I am now free from the retaliation, discrimination and lies from management and more. I hope the firm at some point fails because a firm like this doesn't deserve to survive the mess on wall street. I hope it goes down and no one bails them out!
If you are a liar and a cheat, you will do very well there...very well.

REMEMBER, IF YOU ARE A FEMALE THAT HAS SEEN THE WORST SIDE OF THIS EMPLOYER THEN CONTACT ME AT DOWJONESUP@YAHOO.COM THANK YOU!

I am sorry you had such a bad experience with the bank. No I am not a liar or a cheater, just a very hard worker. To anyone who is thinking about working at Chase. Remember, it is a sales position and lots of people think that sales is for them, it is not for everyone. I feel bad that you had such a bad experience, did you talk to HR? Did you try to do anything about it? I flew on a major airline recently and had an awful experience, no air conditioning and an extremely rude flight crew. It was a bad deal for everyone. I am not assuming that this is how the airline operates, one bad apple does not spoil the bunch. I have flown with them before and have since that awful flight. They are a good solid airline, everyone is entitled to their opinions.

If you decide to work for the bank, it seems like there are many ex upset employees on this site. Misery loves company, remember that!

Chase just acquired WAMU, a huge failure with the banking world. Chase is not going anywhere, they won't need a bailout!

You are so Corporate it's pathetic. I hate the taste of koolaide but you obviously gulp it up! I did go to HR and they ignored it. I'm glad you give your airline a second chance but your talking about discrimination and more. That's months not hours of a flight! You can't compare the two. At least you got a bag of peanuts! I won't go to your low level because I'm sure your an individual that has been programs to kiss the asses that feed you. How sad. There will be a good outcome after all because I have started what will not end so quickly. You can say misery loves company but like you say, work hard....well I did and I continue and I as well as others here or to follow will come up against these "so called giants!" And Chase may have bought WM but I am sure there is alot your company hasn't disclosed to you about what may be hidden. As they normally lie to their staff and ignore problems.

I am very sorry for your experience dowjones. I actually am about as far from Corporate as it gets. My husband worked for another large bank and has had nothing but problems. He worked in IT, but it was still a rotten deal for him in the end. After 13 yrs and lots of heartache, He left and let it go, moved on to a better lifestyle for him and our family. You don't know me at all, most people who have met me think I am super friendly and very nice. I won't lie to you, career wise, I am driven. I give 110% in everything I do and as a manager, I did everything I could for my staff. I ran a teller window often so my tellers could have time off, I worked the SSA desk, acted as a banker often because of vacations or training. I never asked my staff to do anything that I would not do. I would not call that corporate. I did hold people accountable, if it was 3PM and we were dead, I would make calls with the bankers to try to set appointments or look for business customers we had not talked to in a year or longer. This job requires that type of effort and commitment to make good money and to have a successful branch. I think the people who are looking to work for the bank need to see the good side of the bank and I believe there is a good one. I just want to show the positive side of things, not all the negative comments that are on here! Good Luck to you with everything. Again, don't call me pathetic or corporate, you have no idea about my personality or work ethic.

I appreciate your last comments. That's more of an acceptable stance. I gave 110% at all times. I have worked hours most wouldn't imagine! I have ethics and morals and working for Chase I have learned that it means NOTHING! I'm amazed at what I saw and I hope justice is done. You seemed to have been lucky. I never in my entire life have been so lied to and the attempt to destroy me so great. I will succeed because failure isn't an option!

I took the test 2 weeks ago. I would get and SAT prep test book from the library and go over those questions. I spent about 2 hours doing that and it helped me. Look mostly at percentage questions and take your time when solving the answers. My portion was 16 questions, all long math questions. I already have my 6. Take your time and review the SAT prep stuff and you will do great!

I think everyone has really made the assessment seem MUCH more difficult than it really is. I had ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM with it!- it's not hard at all! Quite honestly, if you are working in a bank as anything but a teller, you need to be licensed in Life/Health, Series 6, & Series 63. If you cannot pass this simple assessment, you have a slim chance at passing the multiple licensing exams, which are very difficult and require at least 30-60 days of intense study. But to get to your question, just Google "IQ Test" and look at any of the questions that involve patterns, math, or analytical though. These will be nearly identical to the assessment questions. Good Luck...and I don't think you really need to worry about the test, though. And by the way, I do not consider myself above average intellectually. I had at 26 ACT in high school (average), and graduated from college with a 3.14 GPA (average) in Psyc/Business and would say that most people that work at JPMorgan Chase are probably smarter than me. I really think you'll do just fine on the test.

Well, I just took the test. I have to agree with GoHawks (good name, i play hockey) and the test is a joke. I believe I got all of them right. You have all the time in the world and its very self explanatory. It's all common sense as well. If you have ever lived on your own or deal with your own money, every question they ask you, you can relate to.

Use your calculator and you'll be all set...there should be no worries by anyone who graduated from even junior high.

Bobby, You recently took the assessment online? I took mine on Monday and I have yet to hear back. I guess that means I might have failed? It's pretty difficult to get into chase it seems and I've been in banking for more than 2 years.

I just took the test online. 21 questions.After 4 hours I did receive an E-mail
from Chase :
"Thank you for your interest in the position of Personal Banker - Chicago IL. After careful consideration, we regret to inform you that you have not been selected to interview for this position.

I guess that means I might have failed assessment or because I work for Bank one back in 2002 for 3 mo.they don`t lake it.

a few days have passed, yesterday i did get something saying regarding a position in oak forest, that i was not selected. I am still waiting back on the mokena position, but i keep getting the same email over and over saying to email the recruiter with my contact information so they can discuss my background.

I dont mind working hard, but the test was just a joke and I'm not sure, if I was chosen all the same, if I'd be a good fit there. Bottom line, i think they would rather hire people that already have their licenses so they dont have to pay for newbies to get them. I work for a community bank, they dont even offer us the option to get our licenses, so I guess I'm SOL

I don't have any licensing yet. I'm in the middle of getting hired now, so hopefully that works out. To be honest, the way the job market is now, your best bet is to get to know someone at a company and have them hand your application in...otherwise you're just another piece of paper on the desk.

I am a recent employee and worked for bank one as well, the test to be a banker is a new thing. It does not matter how long or how recent your employment was, if you are looking to get re hired it is all part of the process. I know there are posts on here talking about how easy the test was, good for those folks! I struggle with tests and did when I took the Series 6 and passed with a low passing score, but a pass is a pass! I also thought the exam was not easy. Everyone is different. I don't think they discriminate if you have worked for the bank previously as Chase or Bank One. If you left on good terms they should want to hire someone back who knows the system and how the job works. Those are just my thoughts and I worked at the bank for 6 yrs and am returning after a yr off.
Good Luck to all new candidates. I think there are only going to be a few major banks out there after the whole Wachovia ordeal and Chase's recent purchase of WAMU. I am very thankful to be employed and with a major player as well!

The personal banker position is a pedestrian job, where only a high school diploma, GED, or sometimes just the ability to read suffice as acceptable qualifications. being a banker is not what it used to be. especially not at chase. this post is not coming from a bad place, i.e. contempt, jealousy, etc- its just the plain truth and anyone who really knows anthing about this company and more importantly the position of PB would know this.

you must be a recent hire. you've worked there for under a year i bet, judging by your naivete.

my comment wasn't meant to be nice or mean- just stating fact. sorry it hurt your feelings, maybe thats a sign that you realize what i said is true. if you have a college degree you deserve better than the personal banker job. you owe it to yourself.

I have worked for Chase and Bank One for over 6 yrs. I took a break to have a baby. I am going back to the bank after being a stay at home mom. I have managed at the bank and also been a consultant. The banker job is what you make it. Those who have negative posts and have to cut down those of us still working for the bank, that is your choice. I say if you want to make some great money and work for a large bank, go to Chase. Ignore all the negativity on this site!

do you not see that the negativity is coming from real experiences? and yes- i'm sure there are plenty of people on here who bash it b/c they were slackers and were treated as such- BUT, there are legitimate stories throughout these boards of terrible experiences and they are there to keep the job seekers informed. if you have had a good experience, then great- good for you. by all means share it, but don't tell people who have had terrible experiences that they shouldn't share theirs. and the negative posts aren't meant to cut those down who still work there- if that is how you feel then get over yourself.

I am fine with everyone being able to express themselves and vent. If you were treated bad in any way at Chase, I hope you took it to HR. I do find it insulting when you put others down who do have college degrees and are happy in their current roles with the bank. I don't need to get over myself because I wear no chip on my shoulder and am a genuinely nice and caring person who just wants both sides of the bank to be represented. My husband worked for a different bank and was treated horribly after 12 yrs, he is leaving. It is what it is and he is looking forward to a new career path instead of looking back.

The PB position does not require a college degree.

Is that sentence offensive even though it's true?
Again, I am not putting down the people, I am putting down the position and the company. When I state a known fact- such as "the pb position has extremely high turnover"- am I trying to be insulting? No. But I see people on here who claim to have degrees and they are trying to become a pb. Why throw away a degree on such a high turnover job with a company that has no idea how to value it's employees? ugh.

DowJones,
Wow, I thought you and I had already exchanbged our words and you were OK with my posts. I find it so offensive that you would have to think I gave sexual favors to get my promotions with Chase. You are so sick and twisted in your thinking. I am 39 yrs old. I wish I could say I am a ten as far as looks go. I am attractive, yet average. I have said many times before, I am driven and a very hard worker. I was a national achiever as a banker 2 yrs and as a wholesaler the year I was in that role. As a manager I made the incentive trip as well. It was mostly due to the team I had and how hard we all worked toghether that made us a PL 1. My manager is fair and very ethical and worked the lobby more than any managers I saw at most branches. So all of this being said, I drink no KoolAide and also have given no BJ's to upper level management. I am not a 20 something or a girl who is hot with a great body that got me to the top of my game.

It all came with hard work sometimes 60 hours as a manager, and often 50 hours a week while I was pregnant. I never asked my team to do something I would not do. I ran a window and acted as a banker or SSA most days. Again, it was hard work and a great team. So be careful making assumptions about people you don't even know.

I love my job and Chase, so sue me!!!

Since its hard as heck to get a job now at another corporation or a management or consulting position I might as well get some what other companies look at as "good training and licensing" (wether it is or isn't is not my point other companies seem to think its good stuff) Where/ What is a good path to take so I can be making lots of money, working for a good company.

Hey Bobby - 1st you will never "make lots of money" unless you learn to run an automatic spelling/grammar checker - you may have problems finding that great job. 2nd SAVE your money then buy or build your own Business. 3rd read all the books from Robert T. Kiyosaki of Rich Dad - Poor Dad fame - actually, read them 2 or 3 times. Make sure you read "Rich Dad’s Prophecy" which is about a coming stock market crash......written in I believe 2002. Good Luck.............

I applied for a poition as a personal banker online and at the end took a 21 question (multiple choice) assessment. If I passed is there an additional assessment I am going to have to take? From the posts I've read it people are explaining completing one onsite.

Hey Bobby,
Take the job at Chase and see what you think. It is a great way to get your licenses and see if it is a job for you. Plus, you can do banker thing for a year or so and put up some really big numbers. If you do well, you can get promoted quickly and having that degree always helps in dealing with your customers. There are many bankers in Colorado at Chase making anywhere from $50,000-$80,000.00. Some even make more, depending on how hard you want to work. Chase does not have near the presence here as it does in Chicago or New York. I say go for it!

The position I applied for was the Personal Banker - Management Training Program. During my phone interview, the recruiter said I would be working in a branch inside a Dominic's grocery store. I have no problem with that, but after reading the bulk of this thread, it seems that the $1400 a month commission that the recruiter claimed was average appears unreasonable. I'm not really all that concerned as I have just graudated from college and was making less than what the base salary would be.

Is this a position that is easy to move up from? I would love to work in downtown Chicago in a setting other than branch banking. Also, I am curious about the circumstances surrounding these exams and drug testing. I have never been fingerprinted for a job before, and that makes me a little nervous. Also, what kind of drug test is it? How much privacy are you given during the test, and is it only urinalysis?

Nina,
Go for the management training program. It is a great place to get training and move up. I have several friends who started in that same position that are now business managers and also a district manager and relationship managers. All are young and have been with the bank for about 4 or 5 years.

The drug test is your standard urinate in a cup. The fingerprinting is for security and background checks only. The same thing anyone who works in a bank or child care has to go through. Lastly, the assessment is really no big deal.

Good Luck!

...It's always been a bad idea to become a PB, but now there is concrete proof to steer the innocent clear.

I have managed at the bank and also been a consultant. The banker job is what you make it. Those who have negative posts and have to cut down those of us still working for the bank, that is your choice. I say if you want to make some great money and work for a large bank, go to Chase. Ignore all the negativity on this site!

Oh please, retire your cheerleader outfit!

Wow, I thought you and I had already exchanbged our words and you were OK with my posts. I find it so offensive that you would have to think I gave sexual favors to get my promotions with Chase. You are so sick and twisted in your thinking. I am 39 yrs old. I wish I could say I am a ten as far as looks go. I am attractive, yet average. I have said many times before, I am driven and a very hard worker. I was a national achiever as a banker 2 yrs and as a wholesaler the year I was in that role. As a manager I made the incentive trip as well. It was mostly due to the team I had and how hard we all worked toghether that made us a PL 1. My manager is fair and very ethical and worked the lobby more than any managers I saw at most branches. So all of this being said, I drink no KoolAide and also have given no BJ's to upper level management. I am not a 20 something or a girl who is hot with a great body that got me to the top of my game.

It all came with hard work sometimes 60 hours as a manager, and often 50 hours a week while I was pregnant. I never asked my team to do something I would not do. I ran a window and acted as a banker or SSA most days. Again, it was hard work and a great team. So be careful making assumptions about people you don't even know.

I love my job and Chase, so sue me!!!

I don't need to sue you dear. What comes around goes around. We will all have our time and the jury decides in the end!

Chase----away customers in columbus, Ohio

there were so many turds that were PB's in columbus, ohio several years ago...i wonder if they are still there or if they got canned. i think some have moved to other banks, probably just scraping by there too. but those soulless drones all contributed to the terrible mind-numbing environment. and our manager, wow. he was king turd. i bet he's licking donkey's bungholes somewhere on his faux-farm in rural ohio.

I worked as a PB at Chase in Manhattan for about 2 years as I was finishing up my college degree. I can tell you that the money is definitely there to be made (or at least was before the crisis) but don't expect it to be easy. I've been working in hardcore sales since I was 16 (real estate, health insurance, etc.) and the PB position is as aggressive as I've seen. You're really expected to "help" (i.e. shove every product down the throat) of every customer that walks in the door whether they want it or not. The managers tend to be very aggressive and will ride you like no tomorrow (they got their goals to meet too). Having said that, I was one of the better guys in my district and averaged about 60K a yeat between salary and commission.

So this job is definitely not for everyone, but it's not all bad either. If you're driven, aggressive, and don't take no for an answer you can make decent money with no real qualifications or experience. If you're not, then not even an MBA will help you. That's sales for ya.

I can appreciate what you're saying and it sounds like you are experienced and accomplished in sales, however the skills that you mentioned (driven, aggressive, etc) are ones that should not be wasted at chase- they should be taken to a company or even industry that will pay accordingly and gives a better outlook with a proper corporate culture and structure. I can only imagine how bad the pay at chase is now- it was bad several years back when the economy was good.....

The PB position is complete garbage...I was a banker for 3 years while I was finishing college. What a joke... I remember when AIG annuities were the big push due to their high credit rating. BWAHAHAHAH Must be fun handling all those early withdraws. Now I hear loans and investments are yesterdays news. The next big thing is convenience products LOLOLOLOL. The position is now a glorified tech support person who's primary goal is to set people up with online banking, bill pay and credit cards what a joke LOLOLOLOL.

I returned to the bank at one of the worst times with a down economy. Believe it or not Biff we have had no early withdrawls from those AIG accts! We have been knocking it out of the park on the mortgage side of things, and closed over 500K in investments yesterday and we are a tiny branch! Yes incentive plans change in sales, it is the nature of the business. I guess the fact that all of my bankers are hitting their numbers and 2 of them are on pace to be National Achievers speaks for itself. Don't be mislead on this site, many former employees like to slam the bank. Chase is a strong bank and there are many bankers in CO making bank!!!!!

Believe it or not Biff, no one withdrawing, so I will set up online bill pay and make money, help customers as well as have great benefits with one of the only banks that had a profitable 4th quarter, why do you care so much about it if you no longer work for the company, let it go!

I think you and your kool aid comments are hilarious! Great for a laugh. You heard of Washington Mutual? Largest bank failure ever?? Chase acquired the bank from the fed at a steal of a deal, that gives the bank presence coast to coast now which is something that has always been on their radar, since the bank one days. I am not getting paid for my comments, just trying to give my perspective on things, I currently work there, most of the people that have posted are no longer employees, I feel that anyone applying should be given both sides, now and then. I do think it is a shame that just because I like my job, that so many of you are so negative towards me and my posts. I have told you before I work extremely hard and have an awesome team at my branch! I have worked with my LO for 5 yrs, we were both National Achievers as bankers a few yrs ago. My AM worked at the in store and is one of the nicest and hard working people that I have ever met! My business banker is fairly new to the company and he has to be one of the nicest and most ethical employees I have ever met! We are constantly short on the teller side and I have to teller more than I would like to. My bankers are slammed and one of mine is in the top 100 in the nation. Her customers love her because she takes so much time with them and treats them the way they want to be treated. We all get a little stressed and burned out once and awhile, but they are making some good money and have a fairly solid pipeline. I have to say that we build our success on trying to give great service and help our customers take advantage of all the benefits in banking with Chase. People don't care what you know, but they do know when you truly care about them and their situation. With that being said, I hope you will finally realize I am a good person and my staff is too!

luv2run: first off, i never said you were a bad person, so let's just get that out of the way right now. next, you have to understand how your posts read- the last one is a perfect example- it sounds like a brochure for chase. i'm surprised you didn't describe you and your AM running through a meadow with butterflies while your LO sits on a rainbow or something. i'm sorry, but if your life at chase really is that great- awesome, i'm happy for you...but please understand that it's a little hard to believe, given the horrendous experiences most of us have had. if you are tellig the truth, then i'd say your situation is a very rare one and you should consider yourself extremely lucky.
