Associate (Current Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – September 14, 2018
At present time there is much turmoil and skepticism within the ranks. Hopefully things will improve. Management is not seeing the entire picture. They are only skimming the surface and not truly putting "best practices" into play.
First Financial is a great presence in the community. Always working toward being a neighbor to those in need. There is a great retirement program, several options for health insurance, and on-going educational opportunities.
The management over my department doesn't always follow through with processes and discipline. Often discussing employees problems, both personal and work related, with other co-workers. First Financial is still run like an old boys club with no room for advancement in the company unless you look a certain way.
Great retirement benefits and great presence in the community
FFIN was a great company to work for. My co-workers and upper management were always there and willing to help each other out. The work/life balance was great. Worked Mon-Fri 8:30-5:00 and never on weekends.
Positive environment, great teamwork, good work/life balance
COMMERCIAL LOAN EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Bloomington, IN – September 8, 2018
As a Commercial Executive Administrative Assistant, no two days were the same. Although there were some slow days, most were quite busy with a number of different tasks to work on. Besides submitting loans to underwriting, there was quite a lot of customer service via email, phone and mail. Research was also a large part for both external customers and internal customers. As for the culture, I have known several of the employees for many years and everyone is friendly. My direct supervisor is located elsewhere, however, we worked quite well together via phone and email. The most difficult part of this position was being given assignments that were outside my wheelhouse. Usually things that were supposed to be handled by some of the other specialty departments.
Internship (Former Employee) – Essex, MD – August 26, 2018
The idea is focusing on getting as many new customers as we can to let them enjoy the amazing benefits the credit union has to off. It can definitely be a little intimidating at first because you do need to pick up important things as quick as you can. With that being said though once you get the hang of it it’s smooth sailing!
In the several years since I began with First Financial Bank it has become increasingly negative. With the latest acquisition, our team is feeling unappreciated and underpaid. It's been getting very challenging to deal with upset customers every day.
Treasury and Merchant Relationship Officer (Former Employee) – Weatherford, TX – July 23, 2018
The 5 years I was at First Financial I loved the support and guidance to help me achieve my personal and professional goals. My acting senior supervisor gave me the ability to be creative and supported my ideas. This created a successful outcome in my sales career.
