      Pros

      Great work environment, friendly competition with other team sales reps. Weekly targets. Excellent customer service focus. Business sector is growing high client demand. Maintenance demands to be met. Growing opportunities if committed to the role. Great benefits and paid vacations.

      Cons

      Tons of paperwork, slow computer systems (IT still improving it). Have to be organized to be in compliance. Sitting for long hours. Several phone coaching meetings per week.

      Pros

      Benefits for health their system basic 60%, 80% and 90% credits towards then anything over you pay yourself as a deduction, pension 5%, if you match 4% bank matches 4%, profit sharing if you match 6% the bank matches 5%, you can have a good branch manager that supports you and peers to support you. Systems are very easy to use.

      Cons

      Long hours usually staying late for work and not paid under time, unless you have a manager who recognizes this and lets you leave early. It can be very competitive. Dislike how can see results for all employees. I feel goals should be private and not shared cause it causes stress if they are under preforming.
