Washington Mutual

Teller (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA (US)

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

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

ConsI 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 Senior ManagementGet your employees some chairs!! And put them behind a bullet proof window please!!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
