Contact Center Representative (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – April 20, 2018
I have worked with Arvest for quite some time;. I may still work there. However, I am considering other positions only because I know I am becoming more valuable within the banking world. Culture at Arvest is amazing. The management is solid, and honestly they aren't that hard on you unless you simply don't want to work. Benefits are solid, and insurance is inexpensive. You really can't complain about that. Hours are flexible. 401K. Profit Sharing. It's a good position.
Teller (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – October 17, 2017
I loved the fast-paced nature of the job. Working as at teller, you interact with a lot of different individuals. Making new connections and learning more about people. I enjoyed being able to see my customers walk out with a sense of care and understanding.
FSR/Teller (Former Employee) – Conway, AR – October 10, 2017
this was the best company to work for it was laid back a great group of upper management. anytime they came to the branch they came to my office and always spoke and ask us open question about where you wanted to be with the company. I learned a lot just by working the bank that i did know and will take with with me for the rest of my life about saving money and how to manage your money.
Teller (Current Employee) – Eufaula, OK – October 8, 2017
I perform several duties per day and work with customers on a daily basis it is a face paced company. Hardest part of the job would be to deal with cranky customers. I enjoy working with the customers.
Bilingual Customer Service Agent (Former Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – September 17, 2017
Arvest is one of the few employers I enjoyed waking up for in the morning. Leadership was phenomenal while employed there. I couldn't thank my manager enough for being so understanding. A helping hand was something I always encountered.

Mortgage Loan Underwriter (Former Employee) – Lowell, AR – September 15, 2017
Depends on each individual...not a bad company just too many changes at once. The company stopped caring about small company family vibe and started to change to dollars instead of what the Walton's had originally attended to help the community and increase growth through respect, productivity and integrity.
Input Team Member (Former Employee) – Lowell, AR – September 13, 2017
I started Arvest as a temp. They were in the process of hiring me when I had to go back home to help my mom. They were building a new operations center in my hometown and transferred there. The difference in the management and environment at the new facility were night and day. It was a great place to work. I eventually moved back to NWA and they transferred me back to the department I originally started with. The environment was totally different and in the time I was there they fired my supervisor and replaced her with someone that wasn't qualified for that position on both a work and maturity level. I loved the people I worked with and they did have me working in several departments to help out when needed. It made me feel good about working there and making a difference.
Full Time Teller (Former Employee) – Duncan, OK 73533 – September 7, 2017
Working for this company gave me a lot of experience in money handling and customer service, as well as problem solving skills. BUT, tellers were highly under appreciated and never got credit for the good things and hard work they do. Management hardly ever recognized the tellers.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Nixa, MO – September 6, 2017
For the most part enjoyed it. Bank ranked in Forbes Top List. The bank is growing, just recently purchased another bank in Missouri and Oklahoma, some issues though.
Okay culture, relaxed atmosphere, paid time off.
"Arvest gray area" (banking rules frequently overlooked or left to interpretation), high turnover, too many alliances amongst some management and lower level employees, constantly understaffed, no sick time off, have to use earned paid time off.
