Most of the people I work with are wonderful, but the pay and lack of consistent communication from higher level employees make it hard to want to stay with the company.
Pros
Great coworkers, stability
Cons
Low pay, poor communication

There is limited training for the software and lending products. No defined policies and procedures you have to learn the system by trial and error. The benefits were standard for the industry.

Not a good company to work for. Require you to make outbound sales calls to customer throughout the day and come in after hours periodically to make outbound sales calls to customers.

Expect to have high sales goals with minimal compensation. Employees must be prepared for a high level of responsibility however, sales is the name of the game. You must make regular phone calls to customers to attempt to sell them products.

There was a difference of opinion with the new management team and I am no longer employed there. It was a great place to work. The team and holding company really opened my eyes to the potential of banking sales and the huge need just to ask your customers how their finances are.
Pros
If you are good at sales, you will do fine.
Cons
Not sure about the new management

Central Bank of the Midwest is a fun place to work at. It felt like family to me. I would definitely go back to Central Bank if I have to. It's a good company to work for and they have good benefits.

Great Management but no pay raise in 4 years and meet/exceeded "sales goals" year after year....Less and less focus on customer service and more on product pushing

Things are changing here and not in a good way. Very sales focused, despite being told that the customers are our priority. Job culture varies branch to branch

This company took over Douglas County Bank in Lawrence, KS. Central Bank of the Midwest is a larger bank offering a few additional products and services. Job expectations were quite different including a more aggressive sales program.
Pros
Good work environment
Cons
Mandatory sales program

This company puts a heavy emphasis on selling and pushing products. They don't take no for an answer. Environments are generally chaotic and highly stressful. Management is incompetent and difficult to reach in times of need.

Many managers unqualified to be in their roles. Upper management is aware of unhappy employees, but does nothing about the situation. Sales goals will always come first. You earn time off but don't expect to get it approved.
Pros
Paycheck
Cons
Management, vacation time, overall morale

Both of the above listed areas leave much to be desired. The branch manager where I worked constantly cut corners in procedure and expected those around him to do the same without question. The pay was very low and there was next to no opportunity for making more money with their "commission system."
Pros
Long lunch breaks
Cons
Low pay, no real training, lack of managerial integrity

I was a floated so I worked at every Kansas location and a few of the Missouri locations, I loved every location I ever went to! All the employees are so nice and so willing to help! The hardest part of the job were some locations had a high amount of customers who spoke foreign languages such as Hindi, Spanish, and Russian. Most enjoyable part of the job was my coworkers and the awesome variety of customers I was able to meet!
Pros
Awesome management
