Great Workplace Culture in the Colorado Springs Market
Senior Teller Representative/New Accounts (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – September 10, 2017
A typical day consists of helping customers while being on your feet the majority of the time. Co-workers soon become like family and it is a comfortable environment to work in everyday. The hardest part of the job for some may be how repetitive the job can get from day to day. Others may also find the long work days unnerving. Branch employees typically work 9 hour days with an hour lunch. (Making you gone from home 10 hours a day plus commute time) Branch employees do get 2.5 days off each week though.
Training here is laid out very well and you don't have that typical new job nervousness. They do not throw you right into work. A week is spent shadowing and then another week is spent in actual training classes in Lakewood, CO. Sales goals are pushed but you don't feel like you will lose your job if you have a few off months if you open accounts. Tellers have sales goals but they are not mandatory to meet.
FirstBank is generous with their paid time off to their employees. However, sick time is lumped collectively into PTO. Managers work very well with you to ensure that you get specific days off that you request. I never had to worry about taking time off. This bank also offers paid holidays for all employees. FirstBank has more recently been known to shut branches down an extra day or 2 around Christmas to give employees more time with their families while still paying employees for that time.
You are able to leave work at work and don't have to stress about the job at home.
FirstBank offers medical, dental, vision, 401K, PTO, holiday pay.
