    Pros

    The locations in and around Columbus are pretty convenient. The reputation of Huntington in the community is outstanding. The relationships with OSU, Blue Jackets, and Clippers are great.

    Cons

    Too many layers of management, all trying to impress the next level with plans and initiatives that haven't been thought out to well. Everything is done "in a hurry" and requires multiple levels of approval, even routine items! Too much rigamaroo causing stress and anxiety, most of which is unnecessary. Great job, lousy management, outdated tools, unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Fire about half of the managers and retain the ones that actually have a clue. Good people are leaving in droves to get away from these bad managers.

  2. Branch Manager treated me like Scum

    Pros

    The system was very easy to learn and use. It made the job faster but that also left a lot of room for error that would find you months later.

    Cons

    If you don't have a knack for sales then you don't want to work here. There is also a lot of pressure on customer service which is wonderful....but if you don't say the customers name 3 times they will scold you for it.

    Advice to Management

    The branch manager I worked for was the worst person for the job. She made employees feel like they were the scum of the earth and ultimately lead to me choosing to leave a good and stable job. Managers need to learn how to treat their employees with respect if they want respect.

    Pros

    good entry level work to learn banking. They promote from within- but you have to make sure it comes from your direct manager or you will be ignored.

    Cons

    managers are not well trained. recruiters say 30% of job is teller window- it is really about 85%. they say typical commissions are $5-7K - I am in the top 25% and earned about $2k - most earn less. store managers are always afraid of higher managers and this fear infects everything. 50% turnover results in 11 hour shifts and 10 days in a row worked.

    Advice to Management

    set realistic goals and have a means to evaluate employees, Realistically describe job and earnings to reduce turnover and bitterness from those who feel misled.

    Pros

    Good hours, holiday pay, company provided dress clothes.

    Cons

    Can only wear company provided dress clothes, allowance doesn't cover enough to have a wardrobe. Bad on promoting from within, bad on building talent, massive turn over. You shouldn't turn over 7 employees in a 5 employee branch in less then a year.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be good at something, and then do it. Neon green handles don't make a good experience.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, Can advance at this company if you are an achiver , close to home, tight knot family in small office,

    Cons

    Managment in offices can get away with anything and if they dont like you no matter what a good job you do or what you acheive you will get fired.

    Listen to employees they are your front line dont show favortism treat people like people and learn to listen managment can learn from others as well

    Pros

    Can earn decent money with sales, friendly co-workers,

    Cons

    stuck on a phone all day. can't deviate from scheduled breaks or lunches, even by a minute, without getting harassed. If you're not good at sales, you will be terminated. Odd attendance policy curbed toward getting rid of people, strong distrust between workers and management, doesn't pay all that great for the work thats put in. very similar to being chained like a dog all day. cafeteria food is way overpriced. lots of made up "promotions" that turn out to be lateral movements. push products that customers don't need or want. bonus structure fluctuates with banks; needs, so its impossible to truly rely on them.

    Advice to Management

    don't sell "promotions" then make people stay in that role a minimum of 1 year. change the attendance policy: its difficult to understand fully and not at all fair. Get more parking spaces. change cafeteria vendor. allow flex in adherance.

    Pros

    Train you in classroom but not for customer interaction. A lot of learning on your own. Hard work will pay off, but pay in low

    Cons

    Low pay
    Management
    Training is not sufficient

    Advice to Management

    Good start for young employee

    Pros

    The customers were great. The benefits are amazing! Health was a huge part of Huntington and that's one thing I'm big on. Some co-workers were great too.

    Cons

    The pay was subpar. The management was horrible and sometimes non-existent (meaning, managers stayed in their offices all day..playing on their phones). The office I was at had nothing but double standards. (Tellers can't have food or even water on the line, yet platform side can. Tellers can't have phones on the line, platform side can. Tellers can't browse Internet, platform side can.) The referral goal was most of the time unattainable. The workload put onto us made for 11-12 hour days sometimes (new system with no support). There was no work-life balance. Huntington was very harsh on sick time/pto. They didn't care if you had medical issues; you would get no sick pay or medical leave (besides fmla), just points which can get you terminated quickly. Working in a bank exposes you to disgusting money..you're bound to get sick. Huntington was the only bank I've ever worked at that had no sick days.

    Advice to Management

    stop micro-managing the tellers!!
