It's changing for the worse for employees.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Regions Financial

ProsGreat benefits.
Great paid time off.
Work well with family situations.

ConsThe over the top sales requirements for tellers. The expectations are unrealistic. The pay is not competitive compared to other banks. Salary increases are minimal.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees better so they will want to stay. Each year the employees are treated worse and worse and the expectations are increased while the pay is not.
