    Pros

    Good company, good products, good benefits.

    Cons

    Management was terrible. From the time I was hired, no direction, no support, no guidance, and no corporate training. Most employees were unhappy, and no one played on the same team. No leadership. HR was great at onboarding, but after that you are on your own. HR had favorites and did not support you otherwise.

  2. Worst Company to work for.

    Pros

    Close to home.
    Most co-workers were great.
    Coworkers would help anyone make their goals by the end of the month if you were lacking.

    Cons

    Do not work with school schedules, even after getting approval from management, but because higher up didn't agree with it, they will fire you, but make it seem as if you resigned.
    Almost like a hoity-toity "i'm better than you" attitude from co-workers.
    Pushy sales goals for those who are not salespeople, but try all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Lay off the sales goals. Treat your employees like people. Don't lie to or trick lower employees into something they don't know what they're doing to save your butts.

    Pros

    You can meet a lot great people customer wise!

    Cons

    There is way to much GOSSIP in upper management

    Upper management only promotes people who are there friends

    You will rarely get a descent raise

    You will constantly be short staffed and will NEVER get a lunch break, plus you'll have to work every single weekend while your manager doesn't work any.

    You will constantly get all these things added to your work load and no pay increase.

    It's very sales pushed so if your more about doing what's right for the customer don't work here.

    If you report anything to HR it won't be confidential and whoever you reported especially if it's management you will be given a very hard time and your days are numbered.

    Advice to Management

    Treart your employee's well and maybe the turn over rate would decrease.
    Pay people a descent salary for all the stuff we do

    Pros

    None that I found / aware of.

    Cons

    Unfairness to employees within the branch and the "higher ups" and no concerns nor wanted to be bothered with it. Too many "cliques" within the branches. And for those who refuse to be a part of it.....retaliation happens. No room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Start supporting employees and listen to the complaints of unfairness. Too many "cliques" within the branches. And for those who refuse to be a part of it.....retaliation happens

    Pros

    Met some really wonderful people

    Cons

    Very difficult and stressful work environment. They have only one value and that is to get as much money from every account holder as possible. The branch I worked in was terrible. More backstabbing and drama than work. When I made a complaint about the ethics of my co workers I was fired.I also did not get proper training before I was dropped in the teller line.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the value of your employees and most importantly your customers.

    Pros

    My banking work experience were mostly at the back end of the bank until I started working at Regions Bank. I learned some things new.

    Cons

    The branch I worked for was a nightmare. I'd like to give a negative grade for the management if allowed.

  9. This company is an HR nightmare. Avoid like the plague.

    Pros

    Benefits, paid time off. Bank holidays

    Cons

    Irresponsible hiring practices, poor (nearly non-existent) middle management. Company is an Human resources nightmare. It took nearly a year of interviewing, delays and mismanagement to actually hire me.

    Advice to Management

    Shrink your overreaching HR department to less that 80% of your company. Also before you hire someone and ask them to quit their current job you should be responsible and do your due diligence in collecting background checks.

    Pros

    It's a big company so Regions isn't going anywhere. The cafeteria in the ROC facility is decent. Office is clean.

    Cons

    I worked here for four months and I left with no notice after I dealt with one-too-many entitled executives. You see, the Level 1 Helpdesk is the bottom of the barrel at Regions, and no one ever lets you forget that. You'll get everyone from lowly tellers to Senior VPs talking down to you, making you feel like a jerk for having them wait on the phone for 5 minutes and not eliminating all future technical issues. You'll never feel happy about working in this role.

    The monitored/recorded and nonstop calls will drive you mad. There's no incentive to get through calls fast, because you are only allowed something like 2 minutes between calls for a break. Long-time workers know exactly how to "pass the buck" regarding harder-to-resolve issues and purposely deflect lengthy tickets in an effort to keep their call/resolution times down. It's all a game, and unless you are just as shady, your performance will always look inferior, even if you ACTUALLY resolve users' issues.

    Oh, and the management are super anal about being on time. One time, due to traffic, I was literally 2 minutes late. As I walked to my half-cubicle at 8:02am, my boss was waiting there for me, arms folded, and scolded me for being late. Let's not forget that the ROC facility is located just off the worst expressway I have ever encountered – I-65 – and the two lane road that takes you from there to Regions is often congested like crazy at 8am and 5pm each day. Oh, and that it literally takes 5 minutes to walk from the parking lot to the farthest corner of the 2nd floor where the Level 1 Support area is. It was insane getting to/leaving work. The ROC is a terrible place to work for that reason alone.

    In the end I got past my 3-month review with glowing reviews because I paid attention and could do the work well...but the non-stop barrage of unhappy/jerky people to support will drive most people mad.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice because it doesn't matter - Regions cares less about Helpdesk Level 1 than anyone else at the company.

    Pros

    Working inside when conditions are less than favorable outside, wearing suit and ties.

    Cons

    Constant sales push from an unrelenting number of sources, if you didn't get a credit card or get your numbers you looked like a scumbag.

    Advice to Management

    You wonder why the retail banking positions are constantly needed? Lay off the high pressure tactics for members to perform and focus on other ways for the bank to make money.
