    Decent work life balance . Not working weekend is nice Open minded to who they hire Solid employees who you can ask for help


    What they are asking employees to do in preparation for the merger is crazy for the pay. Not only do you do your job (which is why you were hired ), but then they add on multiple tasks , like calling every business client who banks with you, or scan every document in the branch. Most of our employees are also floating now, so you aren’t even working at the branch you want. Staffing is abysmal, every branch is stretched thin. More people keep leaving , so now some branches have 1-2 employees . Everything is really old, particularly systems. You have to fill out EVERYTHING with paper. Paper for new accounts, paper for signer changes, paper for online banking …. And finally. Training is solid to start, but there is no support past that. You take a training on how to open an account , then you’re sat across from a business with 7 owners and expected to know what to do. You could call your support line, but they track that now so better hope you don’t call too much.

      Easy and fun. Very smooth and straight forward. Everyone was nice and welcoming. One of my favorite interviews. Asked basic questions, nothing crazy, then there was a 3 day waiting period.
