Finanicial Services Specialist (Former Employee) – Dothan, AL – August 14, 2018
There working towards a more tech savy company with less employees. Its all well in good but there eliminating to many jobs and were super slow to implement change leaving the employees who were there to pick up the slack. The sales goals were reasonable but due to being short staffed a with only three tellers the personal bankers were stressed to meet the goals due to constantly having to go back and forth on the teller line.
Upper management clueless on how changes would effect branches.
Assistant Vice President and Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – August 14, 2018
AmSouth was sued and lost for deceptive business practices, but they didn't care. They were consumed with sales at all costs - whether the customer knew and/or agreed to a product or not. They say Regions is a different bank than AmSouth was, but...
Great Bank that needs to focus on hiring good employees
Assistant Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Montgomery, AL – August 13, 2018
Regions was a good bank and they were good to me. But I felt if they focused more on who they hired the morale would be 100 times better throughout the entire bank. The morale was just not there and motivation was lacking to put it nicely. It being a bank that's been in the area for years there were many employees in the same position for over 40 and 50 years which shows complacency. You're comfortable at stats quo or average when the above mentioned is the case. If this was improved, it would have been a great place to work. I came in as Asst BM and acted as BM for 3 months right off the bat which I did not know was going to happen. The employees that had been with Regions for 10, 20+ years had a difficult time with people above them. Instead of taking constructive criticism and individual coaching sessions as a learning tool some felt they were being picked on. Or they felt entitled which led to a negative vibe throughout the entire bank.
Paid decent; Great upper Mgmt
New reports required every week and same numbers still expected to be hit

Regions acquired Union Planters bank in 2004 and Regions at that time was ok, it was large and the merger did not go very smoothly but overall it was a ok place to work. In 2006 AM South purchased Regions because AM South had a bad reputation and wanted a clean start. Once they took over things were worse yet because a lot of deposits went missing accounts did not come over correctly if at all. My regional manager left and asked me to follow her so I did.

They do not care about their employees. They have poor training, no resources to assist you with doing your job-s well, and judge you in whichever light is worst whether as a branch, or as an individual, to keep you from personal or monetary gain.
Better base salary
They might just write you up for fraudulent reasons, and fire you if you are unwilling to take orders. Even to commit illegal practices.
FINANCIAL SERVICE SPECIALIST III (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – August 5, 2018
Dfw area for this bank seems to be a terrible place to work. The managers are hugely stressed and upper management is aware of all this stress that flows doen to the lower levels. Turn over is rampant and nobody stays in the retail side of banking. Things are probably different abd better outside of dfw. Beware the culture is toxic imho
Financial Relationship Specialist (Former Employee) – Dothan, AL – August 2, 2018
Changes upon changes are leaving Regions perpetually short staffed with frustrated customers and overwhelmed employees. I did not feel valued at all there, and simple requests would be shot down without even a thought. There is no work/life balance- Regions want to be our everything. I'm just glad to be done.
Prime-time Teller (Former Employee) – Corinth, MS – August 1, 2018
I was a prime time teller at Regions. Meaning I worked for four hours mid day to give the full time people their lunch breaks. Management was under pressure to push sales and to get accounts. That stress and pressure overflowed onto the employees in the form of unhappiness making for an uncomfortable work place.
Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Cullman, AL – July 31, 2018
Working for Regions is great if you like a challenge. It is a very competative arena but they pay well and offer a great work/life balance. My job didn't require working nights or weekends therefore allowed me more family time.
Fast pace great clients internal and external. I started at an entry level position and worked diligently to advance to a supervisor position. The most enjoyable part of the many positions was the knowledge I received and the ability to see the end results.
Environment was mixed at days, the hardest part of the day was not being noticed by your co-workers, Got to learn many things the hard way when unable to understand certain things even though training was taken.
Financial Services Specialist (Current Employee) – Gainesville, GA – July 30, 2018
Open the branch, process night deposit, work night deposits, am huddle, service customers. Management is involved, workplace is nice, associates are helpful to each other, most enjoyable part is helping customers.
Mortgage Auditor (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – July 29, 2018
This is a ok company to work for. Depending on what department you work in depends on how well they follow rules. My experience was not a very good experience towards the end. The company did not follow guidelines.
