How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at Bank of America? What are the steps along the way?
Simply put around 2-3 month process, first review was most accurate and it can be stressful simply by the fact of of the anticipation!
Employee stock profit and pension plane , as a part time employee i had opportunity to use the employee discounts for different activities ,all the benefits they reimbursed my college tuition and allowed me to finish my BS ,good health insurance, full benefits medical dental life etc ..
What would you suggest Bank of America management do to prevent others from leaving?
Listen to the front line associates who have the most contact with the clients, as they have the best solutions for the unresolved issues regarding their accounts. Also, make more time for associates to learn about career paths, the tools available, and the networking they can do. So many associates don’t know that they can sign up for events for employee networks, everyone thinks they’re stuck doing their job and nothing else. Create the atmosphere for growth that you marketed.
Upper management DOES NOT and I repeat, DOES NOT care for employees at the financial center. You are just a number and expected to meet goals. At my center this past Saturday was busy like it always is, I work as fast as I can. I processed 187 transactions, keep in mind we are open for three hours (180 minutes) and we are extremely short staffed so we end up with over time and we were told we aren't allowed to have over time. In a meeting with upper management on why we stay long and have over time we brought up the issue of not having enough staff. The response he gave us was " I completely understand where you are coming from and I get that, but market has set standards and you are expected to execute them". These people will over work you and scold you to death for any simple mistake that is a result of their poor management techniques.
In the beginning it seems okay, but after awhile you realize that it’s not just stressful but pointless. The lack of opportunity to learn anything new and being tethered to your desk all day with no challenge for the mind makes it a dreadful experience.
Got very tired after 10 years being in the same position. Watching the brown nose promotions. That is THE ONLY WAY to move up with Bank of America, I wished they would have never mergerd. When it was only Merrill Lynch at least there were more reasons to stay. Bank of America tool ALL those reasons away even the Pay!
