Suggestions for improvement

  • I would not allow fraternization between supervisors and thier hourly employees. It makes for hard feelings amongst the employees.

What I like about the company

They have a great human resource department. The main branch in Quincy seems to have the best moral. The outlying branches are bery cliquish.

What I dislike about the company

Supervisors are allowed to mistreat the employees. They make your work life very stressful if they do not like you and nothing is done about it.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The on-site daycare is a great perk for those who work in that office. If we could expand that and make it available to all the branches, that would be great!

What I like about the company

I started at the bottom of the ladder, was provided many opportunities for training and career growth and have worked my way to the position I hold now. They are very family focused and provide excellent work-life balance. They are outstanding in the community and I'm proud to say I work here.

What I dislike about the company

They have followed suit in the past year in regard to raising wages, but can continue to evaluate the competitiveness of their pay scales.

What I like about the company

I am a single mother and First has always been flexible with me if I have to be out with my kids or for school events. My compensation is fair and we gave good benefits.

What I dislike about the company

I still feel that men are paid more and have more opportunity to advance than women.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Due to limiting space issues and our growing company, implementing a policy for working remotely would be a great way to solve the space issue as well as compete with other companies who we have lost employees to due to the work remote option and better pay.

What I like about the company

The culture is wonderful and is one of the most prided aspects of working at First Bank & Trust. Our presence in the community is great and I feel it is a well respected company to work for. Internal advancement is available and I have personally worked my way from entry level to a more seasoned position, however, community politics seem to get in the way of advancing further and there is seems to be a lot of hand picking for certain higher positions.

What I dislike about the company

I wish there was more internal training for advancement.
