Woodforest National Bank Reviews
Rating 4.29 out of 5 7 reviews
Working with Woodforest has been a wonderful experience thus far. You get to gain so much experience, and if you want to move up within this business it is encouraged to do so.
They have the best hours being open 7 days a week is wonderful. they are also open on most major holidays when other banks are closed. They provide free FDIC classes to help you better manage your money.
Woodforest is a great bank to start with, most of the growth opportunities require a big move that the company does not assist with. It teaches you a lot though and the customers are great. It just has some fine tuning it needs to run better and bring in a few upgraded products to be more competitive
The company promotes from within so there is room for advancement. Opportunities for community involvement. Work-life balance could be better, and sales goals aren't popular among employees.
I interned for Woodforest National Bank as part of my degree plan for a double major of banking and finance at Sam Houston State University, and eventually got hired on full time as a credit analyst. Their culture and values are second to none and my experience has been absolutely phenomenal. They are an amazing financial establishment to work for and it is exciting that I get to begin my career at such a reputable company.
Very quiet bank with hardly any customers yet the goals are so high. They are impossible to meet and you end up completely running the bank between two employees which includes and is not limited to HR, Cleaning, Marketing, Sales, Operations, Finance, Security etc. Head office do not care about poor working conditions which results in alarmingly high staff turnover. After working there a year and a half no pay rise and no room to improve even if you work diligently hard. 7 Day a week bank and expected to work atleast 6 days and if you ask to only work 5 days in a week you get attitude and told you're not fulfilling your job role by meeting the needs of the bank.
