Great company to work for but has its ups and downs like most companies.

Atlanta, GA (US)

I worked at BB&T full-time for more than 10 years

ProsBB&T provides excellent training and opportunities for growth. They have very good benefits and opportunities for advancement.

ConsThe sales mentality has increased to a point that I worry that it will override the values and culture of the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt seems that in order to achieve the increased sales goals on leaders, work-life balance will suffer.

I have been working at BB&T part-time for more than a year

ProsGreat company. Products for new moms are great. Company values to service to Mothers and provided various other company gifts to help mom on getting discounts on products. The leadership is different due to the fact most are out of town. This job has plenty communication thur email and texting but the job gets done.

ConsSome days you may go in to work and there is no work. No money is earned when no babies are born.

Great place to work, very stable company with opportunities to move up and within the company if you choose to.

Relationship Teller (Current Employee)
Winchester, VA (US)

I have been working at BB&T part-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood training program, continual training depending upon your position. Very good people within the company, they strongly believe in expecting you to give your very best and only hire people who show those qualities and possess the values required of BB&T.

ConsCould use more hands on training after the "school" type training ends prior to being put in the new position. Sometimes when the branches are understaffed it puts strain upon the existing employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmphasize teamwork by showing you as well are part of the team. Be there to mentor employees and for advisement as needed.
