Years of Experience
Those with one to four years of experience at the company can expect to make about $51K annually on average. The largest fraction of Regions Financial Corporation people (30 percent) have been working for five to nine years and earn $63K per year on average.
Certifications and Degrees
Licensed Health Insurance Agents earn around $84K annually, far more than their non-accredited counterparts.

The best paid folks at Regions Financial Corporation have a Master of Business Administration (MBA), earning $92K per year.
Employees who count Project Management among their skills enjoy higher pay; the median for this group is approximately $75K annually. Microsoft Excel is a popular skill among Regions Financial Corporation workers, with just under one in three of those surveyed reporting using it on the job. Many workers usually know Banking, Customer Service, and Sales as well.
Benefits and Perks
Only one-half of workers enjoy paid vacation days and paid sick time — a rather disappointing finding. The firm looks out for its employees by sponsoring assorted retirement savings plans such as a 401(k) plan and a company pension plan. A large number of workers have health insurance, and benefits for a large number of respondents also include dental insurance. Employees can also look forward to life insurance, tuition reimbursement, and a company cell phone.
