BANK TELLER (Former Employee) – AR – January 26, 2019
You can tell people care about the little guy. You can tell the culture here is bred from the top down, and you even get to see some executives regularly. Management and others really take time with their employees

working for arvest was one of the best jobs ive had, working there helps you learn so much about new things, about credit and loans, overall the associates there were just great! everyone is friendly, and there is always someone to help you when you cant figure out things. There is always room to advance, grow and learn when working for arvest, at times it does get busy, but always had other associates or mangers there to help.

Higher ups in management shouldn't get to make ever singular decision and have their hands in all things. Managers are too afraid to support or stick up for their employees. Arvest plays favorites. If your in and favored, you are golden; but if not you will not get advancement, growth, work or training opportunities. For the most part they have marvelous, kind people. But the few ruin it for the many time and time again.
some lunch/breakfast vendors on site, most people are great

Arvest Bank was a good company to work for. As with most jobs, the team you work with will be the deciding factor in your day-to-day activities. With plenty of opportunities for growth or expansion, it has plenty positions to keep most people interested.

Very challenging, fast paced, and enjoyable atmosphere. Many opportunities to improve my career while at the same time educate, train and provide the best customer service for internal and external customers.

How much you enjoy your job will greatly depend on your management team where you're at. Some departments and areas will be great and present you and train you to allow great growth, and others will micro-manage you to where you feel invalidated in your position.
Senior Teller (Current Employee) – Rogers, AR – January 8, 2019
Good benefits. The PTO benefit is great. It is hard to take time pff due to understaffing. Poor management. No advancement. Very stressful. Constantly understaffed. Very fast paced which leads to mistakes.
A good field of work to work in if you enjoy customer support and banking
Full-time Teller (Former Employee) – Sherwood, AR – January 7, 2019
I thought working at Arvest was awesome, The more I helped people daily the better I felt because they really appreciated the help. I learned how to count money better, I feel the best part I took away from Arvest is the my attitude toward customers. The management would help you push forward and achieve your goal. Workplace was professional, yet it wasn't hard to make friends with all who worked there. Hardest part of the job was dealing with the customers who just wouldn't take "No" for an answer. The best part was helping the people who accepted it. I made a lot of people smile there, in turn made me smile back.
Bank Teller (Former Employee) – Broken Arrow, OK – January 4, 2019
Most of the co-workers were amazing and made work fun, but there are management at some locations that will make life hard and use favoritism. Hour breaks were great but you always felt rushed to hurry up and get back to helping. Poor scheduling as well, never fixed times.
Joplin - Cross-Trained Teller Float (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – November 24, 2018
Arvest was a wonderful place to work. The pay and benefits are better than most places I've seen or heard of in the area. The teams are welcoming and the culture is very enjoyable. Occasionally, management struggles due to changing positions, but overall is well-kept. I would absolutely work for Arvest again.
holiday pay, lunch breaks, employee appreciation, strong community presence
Assistant Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – November 21, 2018
Arvest is good company to work for. They are updating the work environment trying to keep up with the industry. NO more stuffy bank feel. The culture is good a bigger bank benefits with a small community attitude. Sales are must to order to get bonuses. Advancement is relatively easy if you excel at your current position.
