    I worked at Regions Financial full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Hours. The shifts were pretty good. Off on Sundays. Early Saturday morning hours.

    Cons

    Too Sales Driven. You got penalized when you didn't meet your sales goal. They pushed everyone to open new accounts even if the people didn't need them.

    Pros

    Corporation seems to actually care about there employees. Pay scale is good. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Sales goals are lofty and products are average. Charge fees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The sales staff would be able to reach goals if we didn't charge so much in fees and were more competitive on rates.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Regions Financial as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly management,co-workers, some on the job training. Opportunity for advancement if you show willingness
    to learn and become part of the Regions team.

    Cons

    Very "old school" and not quite up to date on internal policies when compared to other regional banks in the area.
    Small presence in the Dallas, Texas area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is Texas, not Alabama, Need to upgrade your attention to employees as well as customers,
    if you want to compete with the bigger banks on the block.

    Pros

    The majority of employees are laid back and very relaxed. they know how to have fun and can really make you feel like a family. sick time is available at a great quantity.

    Cons

    If bi-lingual your workload will be more than than others due to the demand for spanish. Customers can easily get irritated if you are unable or unwilling to cash their check.

    Pros

    the people, the expert experience that all are willing to share.

    Cons

    I need a more flexible work week, which is hard to do with Regions. I work with the Performance Team doing automated testing and a lot of testing has to be done late after business hours, but I still have to be in to work every morning.
