My typical work day at community bank was opening the vault, balancing ATM, waiting on customers with a smile and making sure the vault was balanced at the end of the day.

Company treats employee's like garbage!
Loan Ops (Current Employee) –  Olean, NYAugust 21, 2014
The co-workers are wonderful people! the biggest problem in loan operations is their supervisors. They are all on power trips. Mine was a two faced liar. she holds grudges for no reason at all. If you disagree with her(not disrespectfully) then you will get in trouble. She will lie to protect herself and make anyone else look bad. people in other bank buildings think poorly of loan operations because of how management handles things in their building. You are portrayed as a failure initially and must prove yourself to outside staff. In loan ops if you are a smoker you are segregated. You can't hang your coat in the same area as non smokers. The only place you are allowed to smoke is in the back of the parking lot where there is no cover so if its raining or snowing you either have to walk to your car or deal with it. They play the favorite game. Some people can sit on the phone making personal calls all day and nothing is said to them but others will get called in and chewed for being on the phone. If you get hurt or go on disability expect them to have a poor opinion of you when you get back. There is a lot of drama and gossip. Don't tell anyone about your personal life unless you want the entire building to know. If you're told anything(that could effect your employment) get it in writing.

The good thing is that you can work 8:15-5. Monday through friday...You work with some awesome people(even a few of the managers are very nice and fun to work for if supervisors don't get in the way). The work is very easy and repetitive. You don't need a degree to do anything in loan
  more... ops! Although some people in there seem like they don't have their elementary degree.  less

Human Resources Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 26, 2013
It is a company that is very healthy. It is overall a nice company, but I think they overlook many of the non-exempt people. Sometimes people just want to be heard. I have no regrets. I learned a lot and it has brought me to where I am today.
Pros
Work atmosphere is excellent
Cons
