    Pros

    I enjoyed working day shift.

    Cons

    High turnover rate! I was terminated for using an earned "evergreen day".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have consideration for people who are there to earn a living, I have lost my home, my car, my income because of using my evergreen day...I'm sorry I thought it was earned...

    Pros

    The hours are great. You'd work occasional Saturdays and have half days in the week if you did work a Saturday. Everyone's really nice and friendly.

    Cons

    If you want to move up you have to know the right people.

    Pros

    The other tellers and some platform I worked with were great.

    Cons

    HR treats you like you are a piece of dirt (Ironic right?) Corporate and management bow down to people that work the least and are disrespectful to those who work the hardest. Goals are totally unrealistic and Regions loves to write employees up and make threats.

    I have been working at Regions Financial full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great personal and professional growth opportunities. Competitive compensation. Very much committed to promoting from within and developing leaders internally. Friendly yet professional work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Benefits are just average. Can't really think of any other cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be more willing to listen to associates and not be so narrow minded. Think out of the box and be a little more open to change even if it means a bit more risk.

    I have been working at Regions Financial full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Not the best compensation in the world, but the benefits are good. Small annual salary increase based on your performance and the company performance. (Basically cost of living/inflation adjustment.) I started out with 3 weeks of vacation being an exempt employee. You earn a 4th week of vacation after 5 calendar years with the company. 401k 4% match. Work/life balance is great. They understand last minute things come up and you have to take care of it. Lots of opportunity for advancement in or outside your department.

    Cons

    No tuition reimbursement for Master's Degrees or MBA, only undergraduate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the customer, especially younger ones. The majority of our current customers are getting older and their needs are not the same as younger customers. Invest in technology and don't charge for it. Change policies to benefit the customer rather than the company. (i.e. Reg E, check cashing, etc.)
