Southside is a great place to work if you have an interest in banking. It is easy to fit in and feel like you’re part of the family. They offer excellent training so you’re not being hung out there by yourself when you start. It’s the best place I’ve worked at and hope to keep advancing.
Executive Assistant to the CEO (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – April 1, 2018
Everyone is very knowledgeable, friendly and they are willing to train a new person. The culture is outstanding. Upper management is also available. The loan officers are wonderful. They will walk with you every step of your purchase or refinance.
Safe work environment, and the company does well to train their employees. For the most part, management seems to work well with their team members, and you can usually receive answers to questions fairly quickly.
They do offer insurances, 401K, and fairly flexible scheduling
My typical day at work consists of troubleshooting anything from account inquiries to online banking. I've learned several things while I've been with the bank. I love the culture. Hardest part of my job is dealing with some of the things I can't control. I love my coworkers that is my favorite part of my job.
Great work place, a lot of multitasking because of knowing Spanish which allowed me to learn many things and helped me grow. Enjoyed working with the sales environment that helped me earn extra incentives.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Tyler, TX – July 31, 2017
I really enjoyed working for Southside bank. I worked as a teller and customer service call center. Management and coworkers were always very easy to work with. Overall great place to work with holidays off and decent pay!
Excellent place to start your banking career. Customers love this bank because of its history and overall efforts in the community. Overtime it became clear that performance had little to do with career advancement.
Reg Sales Mgr for Mortgage Lending (Former Employee) – Tyler, TX – May 2, 2017
When hired the culture was one of caring for employees as well as customers. Due to recent change in management the culture has changed as well. No longer the community Bank as before, but one that is interested in bottom line and not of care for employees or customers
Senior IT Business Systems Analyst, AVP (Former Employee) – Tyler, TX – February 2, 2016
Awful work environment. Nepotism is allowed to continue unchecked. Upper management's unqualified, clueless kids are allowed to advance over other senior team members. Management only rewards sycophants and 'yes' men. Employee ideas are stolen, and presented as their ideas. Got much worse with the Omni acquisition. Being reminded daily that your job was in jeopardy, and that there were counterparts to you in Fort Worth, created an extremely stressful work environment. The moral compass of the bank has steadily degenerated since Bill Hartley was unceremoniously dumped from the Board of Directors. Wouldn't recommend as a bank, or a workplace.
