Former Employee - Teller in Atlanta, GA (US)
Former Employee - Teller in Atlanta, GA (US)

I worked at Washington Mutual full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I managed to get along with my bosses and my coworkers. I did like the benefits and all the employee discounts available.

Cons

I hated the fact that as a teller you had to stand up. Our stations were setup like a cell phone store but worse because there was an area for the customers to look around on the screen as you processed their transactions. This was invasive and uncomfortable for the employee. Now that I think about it, this was dangerous given that anyone could come in and easily physically assault us since it was a bank after all. I felt like WAMU did not care about our safety. My legs would hurt after a long day of standing up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get your employees some chairs!! And put them behind a bullet proof window please!!!
