    Pros

    There are ample opportunities for personal growth. Compensation is relatively competitive in certain areas.

    Cons

    Paid time off is lagging behind from past employers. The intention for promotions seemed to be right on mark but the follow through of actually putting the promotion through seemed to be lagging. The work being completed seemed to be 2-3 years ahead of the title/compensation.

    Pros

    Competitive pay the bank closes at 5pm M-Th

    Cons

    Can not retain top talent employees quit managers not companies. A lot of the Cincinnati area branch managers are not good communicators. Hitting your monthly goal is put before the customer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicating and being a leader will help retain a lot of top talent

    I have been working at Huntington National Bank full-time

    Pros

    None. During the recruiting and interviewing process they will sell you on lies.

    Cons

    Huntington's core values do not align with the leaders that are employed within the organization. Poor hiring strategies, managers are not allowed to interview and hire for their own branch. Individuals are placed at District Managers discretion. A lot of hire aheads with no industry knowledge make for a complete disaster. District Managers and POD leaders offer no positive direction, they thrive off negativity. No work/life balance. Hours seem flexible but are far from it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to who you hire and place in management roles. The West Michigan In-Store division will continue to be a failure if the dictator leadership style does not change. Employee retention will continue to be at an all time low if employees are treated as if they should have no life outside of Huntington Bank i.e enrolling into higher education is frowned upon because it takes away from your availability one night a week. I do not think Huntington Bank is a horrible organization but the West Michigan In-Store is by far the worst place to be employed. Beware if you are being recruited by Huntington for an In-Store position.

    I have been working at Huntington National Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Huntington pays better than the industry standard, flexible hours, and if you have any intelligence at all you have a great opportunity for career advancement due to the fact that most of their current employees lack drive and knowledge of the financial industry.

    Cons

    Disorganized, constantly changing the direction of the business, restructured bonus system where you no longer make much, hire people that do not need to be in the banking industry, laughable training that has no real bearing on the true nature of the profession, will constantly look outside to hire individuals into management positions but hey I guess I can't complain about that it's how I was hired by these clowns haha.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time assessing your current employees instead of just hiring other new employees that will also fail.
    Please stop hiring people that worked for RadioShack, Verizon, and Arby's they have no idea that what it takes to be successful in Banking.
    Treat the 10-20% of employees that make the bank actual money better and pay them accordingly.
    Stop referring to yourself as a" National" bank, other banks laugh at you.

    Pros

    Marginal benefits. Their checks clear. It beats working at McDonalds but the pay is about the same. No other positive things.

    Cons

    Anti-commission plans. the company sets up the incentive plan so that it is nearly impossible to earn an incentive. Huntington Bank clearly not this misrepresents job functions and duties during interview process.

    I have been working at Huntington National Bank full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Coworkers, 401k, time off allowances

    Cons

    Management, expectations, changing sales goals to a point where you can't reach them, 10 cent raises if you are lucky, terrible medical benefits and cost, always fearful of getting written up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inspect what you expect, look over the compensation and ask yourselves "can our loyal, talented employees survive on this?" Concern yourself with the everyday struggles and anxieties that the middle and lower management causes the little people.
