Ameris Bank is a great place to work!
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLAugust 2, 2019
My experience working at Ameris Bank was great - The people were great, the culture was great and the compensation was great!

For those interested in working in the banking industry with a 'hometown, community' feel to it, Ameris Bank is the answer. Pursuing a career with the Ameris Bancorp/Ameris Bank team is worth the effort. This realization comes the day you are hired and become part of the Ameris family.

Is this really a financial institution ๐Ÿ˜ณ
Personal/Universal Banker (Current Employee) –  Marietta, GAJune 8, 2019
When it comes to professionalism... There is NONE!! I'm not speaking for the company itself I'm only speaking for the location / area in which I work for. This company is constantly buying or merging with failing Banks while in the midst of purchasing more therefore overall they're never on one Accord. Their customer base is mainly to the elderly because they have no clue what's really going on.
Pros
Very laid-back if you enjoy UNPROFESSIONALISM ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ค
Cons
Confusion and inconsistency of job management

Cannot believe this place is in Business
Banking Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLMay 20, 2019
The pay is far below minimum amount, the work staff is how do you say, ghetto.
The favoritism between management and friends is over the line.
While hear i witnessed a very unprofessional, on the verge of breaking financial law company.
I now know why every customer is upset or extremely old. If they were smart they would get to a real bank.
Ameris is constantly taking over failing banks which in turn adds more stress and reps that are losing morale.
People who will survive here with the level of professionalism, and no money= The Undetermined, Uneducated, people at the end of their ropes.
Pros
Parking
Cons
Employees, Management, Building, Health plans.

Productive workplace
AML Operations Analyst-Investigator (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLApril 28, 2019
A typical day at work is working individual cases and making assessments of each Ameris Bank customer for typical banking behavior. Stay current with rules, laws and regulations and attend all required training.

Too many cooks in the kitchen
Miscellaneous (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLMarch 13, 2019
Typical day consists of making at least 25 calls per day to current and prospective clients to gain market share, with little or no prospecting tools other than an excel spreadsheet somebody created. Completing endless call logs and tracking forms to micromanage every task you've completed throughout the day. Management is the worst part of this overall experience. Ameris Bank is constantly acquiring and merging with other banking institutions, which causes a constant state of panic, and conflicting/competing priorities. This also causes a sense of insecurity because you aren't sure if you are next to be eliminated or not, this all results in a toxic environment. There is clearly an excess layer of middle management at this bank, which causes a lot of confusion by the time the message, priority or process gets rolled down to the branches. Everything is a fire drill, all the time....and it gets exhausting. Beware: no bank-paid maternity/paternity leave as found with other banks. Unless you opt for optional disability coverage, your time taken is unpaid.
Pros
Banking holidays
Cons
Stressfull, toxic enviornment. Confusing management messages

Communication Poor
Conversion Team (Former Employee) –  Douglasville, GAJanuary 18, 2019
Worked temporarily for Ameris as a result of a merger/acquisition. Communication was poor. Also during an acquisition computer systems must be merged so identifying the location and how to map over information is key. The team from Ameris did not want any input from the company they were acquiring.

Bank Teller (Former Employee) –  Lynn Haven, FLJanuary 5, 2019
The customers and coworkers are very friendly, you see most of the customers everyday and get to know them really well and form bonds with them. The area, despite being hit by a cat 4 hurricane, is nice and feels safe. Lately, the management has been a little lacking, my branch was without a steady BM for a long time because they had our manager floating between two branches which not only stressed her out but made it hard for whichever branch was without her for however long.

CSR (Former Employee) –  Saint Augustine, FLNovember 24, 2018
I went to work everyday hating my job. My direct supervisors were great when they weren't too occupied with the busy work they were given. Ameris bank may have some of the nicest representatives but the companies overall customer service was poor due to most of the newer representatives lack of training and know how.

Awful place to work if you have a life
Network Administrator (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLNovember 13, 2018
The fast paced environment is not only stressful but unwarranted if better decisions were made by managers. Due to the lack of organization and management skills this employer is only a hindrance to ones health and mental sanity.
Pros

Cons
poor management and unorganized work environment

Okay Place to work
Branch Manager (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAOctober 24, 2018
Okay place to work but very little room for movement. The pay is okay but they overall benefits are very generic. In today's climate you expect to see employers give more vacation time that is separate from sick time and personal time. Ameris only gives two weeks vacation time and no paternity leave. While Bank of America and Chase offer 16 weeks for paternity leave.
Pros
Closes at 4pm
Cons
No room for movement.

PERSONAL BANKER (Current Employee) –  Savannah, GASeptember 24, 2018
Its a great company, like all it depends as well on the team you are working with. If you are looking for a job with no stress you are not going to find it. Ameris is a good company and you make the environment you are in good.
Pros
benefits, pay, people
Cons
traffic for me
