You took the words right out of my mouth. It's the same way in Springfield, Mo. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders not having to go into that hell hole. I'm currently unemployed and couldn't be happier.

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!

Face it. Chase is not an employee friendly company. If you want to have ANY quality of life work elsewhere. I worked there 4 1/2 years. Management has a good thing going there. They don't do anything but put unwarranted pressure on employees that are already stressed from the work load.

Here's a good one for you boys and girls. While the average employee gets paid less and less every year, either through "incentive" pay getting cut or hourly pay being reduced, here's the reason...
Jamie Dimon made last year...

$1 million in salary
$14.5 million in bonuses
$356K in "other compensations" whatever that is
$13 million in stock options and awards
for a grand total of....
may I have a drum roll please...
$28.9 million

His pay up 5%
Your stocks down 7%

Gnaw on that one for awhile.

chase refugee in Broomfield, Colorado said: Being a former employee of Chase Bank for nearly 5 years I totally agree with the former comment. They have no interest in retaining quality personnel -- the only thing that matters is the bottom line for the shareholders. After i quit early this year (2008), they sent me a bill for over-paying me for a short term disability the previous year. Apparently, my doctor did not submit his paperwork to them in the time they permitted. I had no idea until it was too late. I begged, pleaded, wrote letters, e-mails, but to no avail. In fact, no one would even return my phone calls. Now they are threatening my credit - don't care!

I wanted to ask you about your short term disability. Were you a PB? I am under short term disability now and am having a lot of problems.

Does anyone know if you are a PB and are under STD do you only get 60% of your base salary? If this is true how are you supossed to really pay the bills?

I am not a PB but have just applied for STD myself due to an accident. My understanding is that it all depends on your years of service. I have over 2 years but not quite 3. Supposedly, I am entitled to 4 weeks at 100% and then if I am out longer the rest would be at 60%. The first week will come out of your sick or vacation bank if you have any days accumulated. Then they pay for the next 4 weeks or however many you qualify for. And that is only if you are not denied. Then you can appeal, and appeal, and appeal...

I just had someone from Chase disability call me yesterday and ask why I couldn't still show up for work because "All you do is sit at a desk all day, don't you?" My answer to that was "NO!" If they deny my claim then evidently the specialist that is taking care of me and has been in practice and good standing for many years doesn't know anything!

Hello,

I am still on STD with Chase but I'll tell you that it has been my worse nightmare. Somedays I hate them they make everything very difficult. Here is my email address if you want to email me privately: beansmusic@yahoo.com
Make sure to put on subject: disability so I won't delete you by mistake.

I just was fired in May from Chase at the Troy location. I also had reached 5 years there and felt a sudden increase in harassment. A manager I had seen maybe once in 5 years was following me around the facility. When I came out of the bathroom she was waiting outside for me. I asked her if she wanted to verify if I had actually gone to the toilet....for that I was fired...

It's hard to say if they intentionally harass you or if they hire so many idiots that you just have to deal with their complete stupidity.

I am unemployed as well and like someone said above, I am happy as ever not to have to go into that hole again.

The job was bad enough on its own, but to have to be continually harassed and to have the idiot managers constantly screwing up your pay....AND LYING TO, it just gets to be too much.

A wise note to anyone working at Chase....KEEP RECORDS. They will cheat you out of pay and they will lie to you to get you to work. Keep records if you have to take them to court.

For example, it's Chase's policy to only reward holiday pay to people that work that holiday. So if you work every day but Monday but a holiday is on Monday, then you will not get paid, but someone who works that day will get it off....AND get it paid. So you can work 5 days in one week, get paid 5 days. And a co-worker could work 4 days and get paid 5 days. Pretty unfair, huh?

I know someone that went on disability through Chase after falling at a Chase facility. I think they paid her....then asked her to pay it all back. So she was on disability, had no income from Chase and they wanted $1000s back from her.

Chase is cold-hearted and calculating. They cheat their customers with FEES that are hidden, with FEES they barely disclose in the begninng and general visciousness toward the customers. Chase does not value customers, they see them as easy prey. AND that's how they treat their employees as well.

I was on maternity leave starting 07/28/09. I started at chase 07/28/08. My manager told me that if I was there less then a year that I would only get 60% pay but a year or more would get 100% pay. Luckily I hung in there until the 28th which my due date was the 27th but my doctor let my go over so i could get paid. I did get 100% pay for 12 weeks, but only bc i made it until the 28th, otherwise I would of got paid 60%. I also quit about ten days after I came back bc i couldnt handle all the stress. And the only reason I was there until i had my baby was bc I knew I was going to get paid for 3 months off. Everyone there kept saying they couldnt believe I was still there and pregnant bc almost all the girls there that are pregnant either quit or get fired. I couldnt afford it at the time so I hung in there.
I can stay that I havent spoke w one person that liked their job unless they were off the phone. I would never go back and I am currently unemployed and also much happier then being there.

I agree. After I was fired, yes I was unemployed, but it felt like the world had been lifted off my shoulders. I am so-o-o-o much happier now. It's not just the phones either, it's the caustic environment that Chase brought to the merger. Bank One was a good company to work for...Chase...not so much!

They get you on a phone conference with an unemployment caseworker, a Chase lapdog lawyer, your old manager and you. The caseworker will let both sides tell their side of it. Sometimes Chase also brings in witnesses to tesitfy on their behalf.

In my case case they brought in a little weasel I thought was my friend to completely lie. I called him out on his lie and the caseworker saw through their BS and awarded me my unemployment.

It is my understanding that they fight every case of unemployment just to be dicks!

Does anyone know if you are a PB and are under STD do you only get 60% of your base salary? If this is true how are you supossed to really pay the bills?

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.

I'm glad you're no longer working for Chase, at least I hope not. Chase bankers with a bad attitude as yours or perspective make it hard for the rest of us who actually enjoy helping customers. It all comes down to perspective. If you have already made up in your mind that you are "bothering a customer, and or are nervous about sitting them down to review their accounts," then you shouldn't be working for the company. I used to work for State Farm Insurance where you had to make over 150 phone calls a day to make an appt. If you hadn't, you were suppose to go out and find your appt any means necessary. When I interviewed for the pb position at Chase, I laughed that people find "working the lobby" a chore, an intrusion on people's privacy. Knocking on someones house door is a chore, making 150 phone calls is a chore, NOT greeting someone at a bank and helping them make a deposit, all the while looking for a way to offer a product.

It has nothing to do with "producing" at Chase or all it's various versions of "JP Morgan..". Being excellent at your job, going above and beyond, working long uncompensated hours, doing all the "right" things, will not protect your job. Neither will being profitable.

This is not a company I would recommend working for, no matter how desperate your situation.

You are so correct, JP MORGAN CHASE BANK IS A SWEATSHOP!! I was ranked #3 for processor loan closings several months in a row, however, my Supervisor wrote me up for production so they would have an excuse to not pay bonuses or commissions. They will ALWAYS find a way to cheat their employees out of money, another example of many is if you start with Chaseworks or other temp agency any loan that is assigned or application for loan dated during your temp time (which was several hundred to each temp processor)you are not eligible for the commission or bonuses on these loans even if you worked on the loan from day one and it closes after your official start date as full time perm. Chase employee! And it should come as no surprise that Chase Supervisors and VPs will not tell you these facts so they can get more loans closed without paying the ones who did all the work! Google "JP Morgan Chase fines" to find out about all the fines Chase has been given for lying, cheating, deceit to employees and investors not to mention the help Chase gave Enron and other big companies to cheat their investors too all so they could give money to themselves and their friends! Guess I didn't make the friend list but I have started a lawsuit against Chase for denying my unemployment, wrongful termination, discrimination, and so much more and my attorneys feel very confident of winning with all of my documentation, including over 950 different documents of Supervisor's emails, pipeline reports, conversation logs and so many other pieces evidencing Chase's lying, cheating, and theft! It is my sincere hope that anyone thinking of becoming an employee or customer of JP Morgan Chase Bank will do your homework, read everything in here, and do Google searches to make a wise and informed decision so you can save yourself from the pain, anxiety, and aggravation this Bank is known to for!!

JP Morgan is a really terrible place to work. Working smart is not rewarded-- rather hours in the trenches is what's valued more. If you can't work 18 hour days 5 days a week and then 12 hours both on Saturday and Sunday then look elsewhere. Also this is even worse for woman. This is the worst environment I have ever seen for woman. Woman are clearly targeted. It is no wonder that Men dominate the work force in the IB group. I do not write this lightly as I work in a male dominated field but this is the worst I've seen in my 30 year career... beyond description. I would recommend that you continue to look for another job if you are considering it. If you think it can't be as bad as everyone describes you are wrong. I have seen some of the strongest woman I know (and men for that matter) say daily that they hate working there. My advice is RUN.

I couldn't agree with you more. My experience was that 10 interns joined JP Morgan one summer and with all receiving offers only 5 returned... even in the this very bad job market. The company is terrible and treats their employees the worst. These were all highly accomplished individuals. I can't stress enough that this is a terrible place to work.

I have been with Bank one and then Chase for 14 years and I have to say that every career or job has its challenges. You get back what you put into your career. Chase has rules and measures because they are a business and smart businesses have to make decisions in order to succeed.I am not saying that this is perfect but it is how this is how a good business is run. I noticed that some of the comments were from disgruntled employees who did not succeed with short term disability. I have been on STD but I followed the guidelines and never had issues. I find Chase to be more concerned than most of the other employers I have had. You are expected to do your job in order to succeed and if you do, you get ahead. So I have had a satisfied career there.

Worried_chase in Royal Oak, Michigan said: Should i tell them i was terminated chase said they are not allowed to reveal that

NEVER reveal a termination to a perspective employer unless it was due to a nationally publicized downsizing. Employers cannot reveal they've terminated an employee. If you don't tell them then they should not know. If a perspective employer comes to you and tells you they've learned of your firing you have the right to find out how they came across the information.

To really find out what your former employer is saying about you:

1. Obtain a list of questions some prospective employers normally ask.
2. If your former company's HR dept handles job verifications then: Go to a local business and ask to use the phone - hopefully a private office or waiting area...call the HR dept. Why? So the caller ID will have the name of the business. ;-) The key question is "if given the chance, would you opt to hire this person again."
2b. To find out what your former manager is saying about you: Have a friend make the call from their business or another one.
**Also RECORD the calls**
3. If anyone reveals that you were fired, then that's against the law, but also note tone of voice, etc.

If anything, you'll at least go to your next interview with more knowledge.

Disgruntled Current Employee in Monroe Township, New Jersey

fredericka cholang in Colorado Springs, Colorado said: What company doesn't look at their bottom line? If you work hard and produce then you will be fine. What company is going to pay an employee who doesn't produce?

UNTRUE! You will not be fine despite any level of productivity or innovation you bring to your job. It is a slave shop mentality where no one is spared abusive treatment. I have been belittled, harrassed and iced out of my own project so I could be further maligned during the performance reviews. It's not deserved, I have a long history of succcessful employment in my role in similar size companies. This is a toxic corporate environment. I've been there 8 months and am already in therapy due to the negative treatment I have received. My exit plan is in motion.

Disgruntled Current Employee in Monroe Township, New Jersey

Sharon in Amherst, Massachusetts said: JP Morgan is a really terrible place to work. Working smart is not rewarded-- rather hours in the trenches is what's valued more. If you can't work 18 hour days 5 days a week and then 12 hours both on Saturday and Sunday then look elsewhere. Also this is even worse for woman. This is the worst environment I have ever seen for woman. Woman are clearly targeted. It is no wonder that Men dominate the work force in the IB group. I do not write this lightly as I work in a male dominated field but this is the worst I've seen in my 30 year career... beyond description. I would recommend that you continue to look for another job if you are considering it. If you think it can't be as bad as everyone describes you are wrong. I have seen some of the strongest woman I know (and men for that matter) say daily that they hate working there. My advice is RUN.

The statement about the treatment of women is spot on. I am a strong, experienced. professional woman, and this place has broken my spirit. It really IS that bad, do not fool yourself into thinking only incompetent slackers are complaining about the poor treatment experienced there. My department has had 100% tunover int the last year. It IS THAT BAD!

They insist on your loyalty but give none in return. I was hired in January of 2001 for a programming position in Tampa. After 18 months and the passage of a bill in the Senate to allow 195,000 H-1B workers into the US for 2001, 2002 and 2003, I was laid off. I was told that 85% of the people who were laid off found other positions within the company. The HR person who sat in an office overlooking the walkway to the cafeteria would always return my calls when she knew that I had gone to lunch. Although I had an Information Systems degree and 20 years of experience, they would not hire me for a position as a cobol programmer where the only thing that I needed to learn was CICS. As a result of what they pulled on me, I lost my home and everything that I had worked to have for almost 20 years. They give out an internal atta-boy award called a service star. It is a small silver star that you can pin up in your desk area. When I was laid off, I had two months earlier, finished putting into production, a computer program that kept my division from loosing one of its largest customers. When I returned from being laid off, my service star was on an internal correspondence envelope on my desk.

Wow....i wish I had seen this sooner. I was an employee of JPMorgan here in England for 8 years. I have to say it was the worst 8 years of my life. JPmorgan are a disgrace. I worked my butt off for 8 years for what? I was given no bonus or payraise in my last two years, I was expected to work 9 hours a day and if I hadn't then i would be looked upon as a traitor by the manangement. The reason I hadn't been given a bonus was a grading system. I was put on a low grade and done all that I was asked to get me to a higher grade,extra hours, took on more projects and still I could not get off this grade. It affected my personal life and almost cost me my relationship, stressing me out to the point of breakdown. In the end they asked me to leave, with a pittance of a pay off but I saw this as an oppurtunity to leave and start a new life away from this hole. I now work for an employee friendly company...ok I may not be on the money I was on but my quality of life is better and I am recognised for my work and not for who I am.

An Abused Chase Employee in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

22 months ago

As a rarity now, I started 10 years ago with Chase in Annuity Operations when it was Bank One. I thought I was in freaking heaven, hours were great, flexabilty on hours, benefits. THEN came Chase, and anyone who has been with the "C" word longer than 2 years, knows you get screwed. I watched people being overworked, no advancement possibilites and position eliminations, but I hung in because I loved what I did. That was until 2009 and they "moved" operations to Columbus, no offense Columbians, but you guys are sometimes big PITAS. But I went to Loss Mitigation as an Analyst, same stuff happened, people overworked, no advancement, and the goals are unreachable unreasonable. For the first time in my career, I had a nervous breakdown last year, when I came back, they threw me back into the fire, no updates on policy and proceedures, nothing. Phased my position in to Solictations, nice, more meds, more stress. Then I get moved to Negoitations, and then it gets really interesting. 8 supervisors who refused to kiss AVPs backsides get their positions eliminated, ones who are top performers. Not the nightmare who violated the all might Code of Conduct...I wasn't on anti anxiety meds before, I am now, and just was released from the hospital after trying to eat my whole bottle. DO not work for this company, they don't care about you nor will they ever.

Worried_chase in Royal Oak, Michigan said: Should i tell them i was terminated chase said they are not allowed to reveal that

No. Chase provides you with an employment verification number and a PIN number to access. You give that to your prospective employer and advise them that Chase doesn't allow personal references on former employees. Chase will only give them hire/term dates and salary amount, no reason for term or info on your performance. If you give them your former supervisor's number, however, all bets are off.

Let me share my story with you. I started with Bank One in Columbus, OH in 2002. I was a clerk in the Global Corporate Trust Group in the Polaris Center. This was a fantastic job and Bank One really made an effort to take care of their employees. In 2003, we received notice that JP Morgan Chase was buying our division, prior to the purchase of Bank One. My operational position was moved to Texas and I had to scramble for another position within Bank One before being laid off. Thanks, Jamie. I was able to grab a position in Commercial Banking working on checking fraud. This position was excellent. Then in 2004, Chase came in and bought all of Bank One. Our positions were safe for the moment, but the atmosphere and corporate culture completely changed for the worse. Holidays were eliminated. Tuition Assistance became much harder to receive. You could not cash out vacation anymore. Quality and productivity standards became more rigid. Time off allowed was reduced and unscheduled absences would lead to quick termination, even in understandable circumstances. Chase instituted a scorecard system that ranked in three catagories: Exceeds Expectations, Meets Expectations and Needs Improvement. If you performed at your top level and did not make mistakes, you could maintain a Meets and feel comfortable with your job. One slip up, such as returning the wrong check for a client, would put you in the Needs column for the month. If you did that two months in a row, you would be termed, no matter how long you worked there or what your performance was like in the past. In 2006, our center received a visit from Mr. Jamie Dimon. He told us point blank that half our jobs would be moved overseas and to Tampa. When asked about "outsourcing", he replied, "We'll do it because it makes sense." He did not give a sh*t at all about what we thought. At that point, I found another job with a small company and resigned from Chase. Why take a chance, right?

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.
