Horrible place
If you want to work with a drama filled facility then this is your place. This place has been very rude and judgmental. It would be a great place if they would pay more and get rid of the drama causers.

Fun Workplace
It's great place to work at. People are very friendly and helpful. There are meetings held where you can meet other people that work at the other Southern Bancorp sites. Its just a great place to work. I'm actually part the the Deposit Ops group and I maintenance accounts. Anything from changing addresses, deleting and removing customers from accounts, I also work with wiring money in and out. This is a typical day for me. I love what I do it's just a great place to work.

It’s a enjoyable place to work at.
I’m only leaving Southern Bancorp because of job relocation for my spouse in the Little Rock Arkansas area. Southern Bancorp is a bank that focus on wealth building throughout the community with its employees being the prime example.

Transaction department at Southern Bancorp
My day is fast pace but repetitous. I have to be able to multi task while configuring reports, logging information on a spread sheet, gathering information to submit to loan department etc. The hardesdt part of my job is reviewing/inputting wires. I have learned so mauch about the types of transactions and the causes of what can make a transaction be rejected. I love the work environment that I am in. My boss is a very good teacher.She always eager to show me new tasks and always encouraging and praising me for a job well done.
Pros
Have a 1hr lunch, 401k plan
Cons
raises
