      Pros

      Great benefits, don't shove sales goals down your throat, prioritize customer service

      Cons

      Employee shortage so tellers and bankers are being treated as floats and being sent to other branches to help. There is a merger coming up so I'm not sure about the future.

      Medical benefits make it worthwhile.

      Dec 9, 2021 - Bank Teller in Vancouver, WA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Medical Benefits. Predictable schedule. Paid vacation time, but unable to get the time you want as you must compete with others in your office.

      Cons

      Unrealistic sales goals to reach by phone cold calling customers. Lack of support or team work. No incentive to stay there other than medical benefits. Zero opportunity for part time employees. Always understaffed and over worked. No compensation for horrendous cost of parking downtown.
