Challenging banker

Personal Banker I (SAFE) (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA (US)

I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time for more than 3 years

Pros401k match is great at 6% . PTO and vacation days are great. Benefits are great as well and it is easy to move up within the company because they tend to hire mostly from within.

ConsPressure from upper management is unrealistic. You need to have two checking acct appts at a minimum per day and in the Cherokee county district 3 credit card apps per day. Also, expectation is often unrealistic and you can't just expect to work here and sit in your office or desk and expect to get sales. The compensation bonuses are like 1000 max per quarter IF you go way above your quota which the way the market is, not a lot of ppl are hitting it. As a banker, don't expect to be offered more than 15.10 an hour and that is with experience. Turnover rate is absolutely appalling.

Advice to Senior ManagementDistrict managers need to quit trying to micromanage everything and making employees irritated because that's why turnover is so high.

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
