Good Company to work for

Financial Service Representative (Former Employee)
Rogers, AR (US)

I worked at Bank of the Ozarks full-time for more than a year

ProsThe region I worked for in my opinion had great condition-workers and good management. Pay for my region I believe was slightly above average and training is good at this institute.

ConsI feel like this company does like to promote from within but due to in my division having smaller branches the only positions that ever became available were entry jobs it was harder to move up. Incentives are not the best they could be better.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you do... I feel like you are doing a good job.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Absolutely Awful!!!!!

Teller/Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
Ozark, AR (US)

I have been working at Bank of the Ozarks for more than a year

ProsThe only pro to working here is keeping up with your expenses a lot more!

ConsBad management, gossip spreading, rumor starting, snobby backstabbing co-workers! And management is a part of it all! Very "cookie cutter" place of employment! The tellers all talk trash about everyone, makes fun of customers and are out for themselves 110%... management is a part of it all by disclosing confidential information. Very unprofessional and shady. Work environment is much like a high school "group" you're either in....or out. And if you're out of the childish game playing group, they will make every day a living hell for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to management is to quit and get GOOD PROFESSIONAL management to hire all new staff that actually cares about people and each other.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Ultimate micro-management with no loyalty to employees.

Commercial Lender (Current Employee)

I have been working at Bank of the Ozarks full-time for more than 5 years

ProsCompany stocks has performed well over the last several. All officers received stocks which helped to make up for the below market salaries that the company pays.

ConsMicro-management from the very top down. Company demands absolute loyalty from employees with zero given in return. Below market wages. CEO with an ego greater than that of Donald Trump. Anyone who even hinted that George Gleason may be wrong about something will soon find themselves unemployed.

Advice to Senior ManagementDial down the ego and listen to front line employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Unfairly judged and fired after two weeks

Teller/Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
Fayetteville, AR (US)

I worked at Bank of the Ozarks full-time for less than a year

Pros-My branch manager was very polite and open with me
-Company was about to improve employee benefits ($1-for-$1 401K matching)
-Good learning experience for young professionals
-Potential to grow into hiring earning positions

Cons-Released after mentor program
-A lot of pressure on tellers for low pay
-Mentor trainer seemed offended when I asked questions about the company I was hired to work for
-

Advice to Senior ManagementPrepare employees who are going into their first full-time job what to expect in the mentor training program. My manager seemed enthusiastic about receiving me, but had to let me go after being inaccurately informed I was unprofessional and performed poorly with my mentor.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good Job, Bad Management

Part-Time Teller (Former Employee)
Conway, AR (US)

I worked at Bank of the Ozarks

ProsI am currently a college student, and the pay was higher than at other locations, I enjoyed being able to work in an office setting, and the other tellers/front-line staff are very nice.

ConsSupervisors and upper management have problems relating to employees, praise is rarely given for a job well done, and mistakes are nearly unacceptable.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think managers and other people in places of authority should definitely be reevaluated. My manager was very condescending to the tellers and front-line staff and it was extremely hard to tolerate.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
