-Good learning experience for young professionals
-Potential to grow into hiring earning positions

Cons

-Released after mentor program
-A lot of pressure on tellers for low pay

-

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Prepare employees who are going into their first full-time job what to expect in the mentor training program. My manager seemed enthusiastic about receiving me, but had to let me go after being inaccurately informed I was unprofessional and performed poorly with my mentor.
