It's a nice place to work and they are very keen on making sure all policies are followed.
Support from management
My manager was only involved when I specifically asked for her help, but when I asked, she was knowledgeable about what I needed help with.
Again, I felt like I should not have been put with a drawer so soon. I had been there two weeks. I needed more guidance from my trainer.
Freedom to work independently
I mean you pretty much get thrown to the wolves after week one, so yeah you're definitely allowed independence.
My training was left up to me. As well as when I made mistakes. I had to "figure it out".
There are men, just not at my location.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Older colleagues were all there were. They didn't hire many that were close to my age.
Office / Work Environment
I felt like I was surrounded by ladies that were too busy gossiping to help me. And if I asked for help, it was a tornado of three different people's ways of doing things.
There's a set schedule and you get weekends off.
If you can't keep your drawer even all the time, you get warned that you'll lose your job. This was my first banking job, so this scared me.
It's a bank. There's always the chance of a robbery.
Inclusive / Diverse
I was the youngest one in the company pretty much. I'm almost 30. Everyone else was at least 50, and I felt like I didn't have anything in common with my coworkers.
Suggestions for improvement
- Train new employees, especially those without prior banking experience, more hands on. Don't give a drawer to someone after two weeks.
What I like about the company
The schedule was nice, and for the most part my experience was positive.
What I dislike about the company
Multiple people trying to show you their way of doing something. Getting in trouble for not having your drawer exactly at 0 at night. Days that they do the offline training. I was new. I shouldn't have had to do it when I wasn't trained yet.
