I love what I do as a banker the company treats me great the only struggle has been trying to move into management I have noticed there is a lot of political stuff that goes into it and I’m more of come to work do what I’m supposed to do type of person. To me it should be all about the customers and doing the right thing. I have learned if you what to move into anything other than being a personal banker I or personal banker II your performance a lone what help you. The people who are being put a head of me have not performed as well as I have over the last 18 months but they hang out with the managers outside of work do they’re being gifted the opportunity instead of myself. As it sit now I’m on the list for president circle and will finish top 5 in the west Michigan market for production year to date.

I have been a personal banker for 7 years at Chase. The position started off great but over the years Chase has added more responsibilities without increasing the pay. They are trying to do more with less staff.
The corporate culture here is not for me. The pay was competitive but not worth working with managers, executives and peers who have no idea what’s going on and don’t know how or choose not to do their jobs.
