    Dependant on your location and manager

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat growth opportunity, hire and promote from within.

    ConsAggressive sales environment
    Pressure from management
    Self sourcing required in some areas, but not in others.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI am fortunate enough to be at a busy store so we can rely on walk-ins and inbound calls to meet our sales goals, but other stores in the district see a fourth of what we do, yet their sales goals are the same. I think that is very unfair and is the cause of such high turnover. Use common sense and adjust the goals to compensate for store traffic.

    leader

    Leader (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC (US)

    Proslong hours, long hours, long hous, long hours

    Consgreat pay, fun people, loved the job, would return to the job

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more honest in the call center with leaders and rehire leaders and all employees in retail Customer Service if they apply. People change and go through different experiences when they leave. Leaving does not mean you are not a good fit for retail customer service. Change your mind set and give people a chance. You are missing out on good talent and what does it say about you if you will not rehire employees back.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ConsThere are sometimes to many bankers and not enough customers to allow everyone to hit their goal. That's not a real big con however because if you build a strong customer base and your outgoing you will do incredible
