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.
Great coworkers, stability
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.
A great place to work at, good schedule with holidays off, Co-workers are nice but some think they have control over you. Good benefits and flexible time off as needed. Over-all not enough pay.
Set schedule, holidays off
Not enough pay
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.
If you are good at sales, you will do fine.
Not sure about the new management
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Central Bank of the Midwest?
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.
Good work environment
Mandatory sales program
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.
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."
Long lunch breaks
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!
