    Great place to work but many false promises and quirky management.

    I worked at Amegy Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great place to learn and gain experience. Learning and development courses keep employees up to date.

    Cons

    If manager doesn't go to bat for you during bonus time, you could find yourself without. Annual compensation raises average between 1-3%. Promotions are based on tenure at company and not work output. Very political work environment where other employees will not hesitate to throw you under the bus to move ahead. Managers would prefer you be at your desk for 8+ hours a day doing nothing rather than work output and performance. Younger employees with less experience work harder than more senior level employees. Micro-management is a big negative and upper level management would rather delegate work than do it themselves. Managers promise employees things that never materialize.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With older more seasoned employees working longer, its increasingly difficult for younger employees to move up in the company. Not everyone is meant to manage and lead other employees. It seems many managers are where they are because of how long they have been with the company. New employees hired with same job title should not make $20,000 more a year than similar employee with significantly more experience.

    Personal Banker II Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Houston, TX (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX (US)
    Application Details

    interviewed at Amegy Corporation in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview by phone and then in person at Houston Corp office. The recruiter was thorough and made me feel welcome like family. Like Guaranty Bank, they hire well which means good news on finding a good fit. Interviewed with the Branch Manager and Asst who were great people first and great bankers. This all occurred within one week and I am currently waiting to hear good news. This bank has great market share and reputation in this area. Looking forward to possibly working with the team! Kudos on this experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Many questions were behavioral to ensure a good team fit. This is of great value as to not waste any of our time. The job I am leaving was inaccurately portrayed as was the manager. The manager at the bank I am leaving is the worst manager I've worked with and taught me a valuable lesson. I appreciate the hiring process here at Amegy and it will be a great fit.   Answer Question
