    I worked at Fifth Third full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent team work while making our customers happy is what made it worth it every day. I loved the people i worked with including my manager.

    Cons

    Staffing was typically low. Sometimes it's hard to make customers happy when there are not enough people to adequately take care of them. We made it work though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe get more staff.

    Pros

    Great company to work, however the company has undergone many organizational changes on the Retail level such as the elimanation of some position only to redesign it into a sales position. Which is understanding in a more sales focus industry, however discouraging to new hires.

    Training program is excellent most FCM are very knowledgeable in interested in the growth of their staff.

    Cons

    Short staffed, expect to perform many roles in a financial center. Hired as a FCM or PB but expect to work as a Teller, PB, IE, etc....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink the staffing structure, short staffing is leading to the high turnover in some regions.

    Pros

    Managers are generally flexible and willing to work with you. It's really all about the people. Fifth Third seem truly interested in engaging its employees.

    Cons

    Training and technology can be somewhat sub par. Once you're in the company, good luck getting a decent raise.

    Although little opportunity for advancement outside of the Cincinnati market, hands down the most generous and laid back of all the banks.

    Pros

    A more relaxed atmosphere with a focus on peer sharing.

    Cons

    Not original in any way in regards to an ever changing demographic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being known as the bank that's three years behind all the other banks doesn't mean you should hire all their old dead weight and copy what they implemented three years ago. Take a chance. Innovate. Do something new. Team goals over individual goals, pull the strengths from the individuals to work together and applaud the end result.

    I worked at Fifth Third full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There is lots of room for growth in this company, as Fifth Third is everywhere and has many open positions. They also have a very laid back culture.

    Cons

    The cons in this company is the pressure of getting sales, having to hit your numbers, and the pressure of management to do such,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being positive with your staff motivates them more than being negative and using pressure tactics

    I have been working at Fifth Third part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The benefits are available after just 30 days.

    Cons

    The computer based training, transaction processing systems, and mobile banking systems were difficult to navigate and were not user friendly. The entire training process which focused on customer experience is a white wash. This bank portrays itself to be an institution focused in customers, but the same scheme plays out: sell, sell, sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and up the starting salary to make the position more competitive.
