minimal work experience required to perform an excellent job.
Principal Responsibilities (Former Employee), Bridgeport, CT – July 23, 2015
Pros: low levels of stress
Cons: limited compensation
Dunkin Donuts is a good start for any young adult looking for work, providing the most flexible schedules and requiring employees to perform simple tasks. The longer you work for the franchise, the more responsibilities given to the employee.
People's United has a professional, community-or, it was oriented management staff. Each department, with whom I developed web content, had management with a forward focus. At every level ways to enable a positive customer experience was a priority.
Great management and retail training program, where great direction and hands on training is performed through stages. Business model flawed, dual management creates one sided enviroment where many inconsistencies and discrepencies are constant.

Sr. Customer Service Associate (Current Employee), Saugus, MA – November 7, 2014
Pros: great customers, friendly coworkers, great location
Cons: healthcare, short lunches, sales goals
I start the day off by coming in and getting my drawer from the vault to begin my teller duties. I then check to see if I have any calls I need to make to customers regarding sales or services.
After I finish my calls I check to make sure that everything that we faxed over the day before have reached the proper departments and have been imaged accordingly. If they have not I refax and check again the next day.
Throughout the day I handle customer transactions as well as balancing the ATM, Vault and TAU (Cash Dispenser)
My coworkers and I get along wonderfully. I am a very positive person that can get along with anyone. I have been told by many coworkers that I bring a sense of positivity to the office.
The hardest part of my jobs is the sales. We are constantly being pushed to sell this and sell that and although I am able to succeed, I still find it personally difficult and it takes me out of my comfort zone.
I enjoy the customer interaction of my job the most. Being able to help people from day to day makes my entire job worth while. I love when a customer comes in with a problem or complaint and I can have them smiling by the time they leave.
The politics are unbelievable & lots of micro managers
High level staff professional (Current Employee), Bridgeport CT – November 1, 2014
Pros: i work with some nice and talented people
Cons: many managers do not have the skills needed to lead and develop high level professionals
Over worked and under paid Very low merit budget (why bother low) Lots of back-stabbing at higher levels The politics are unbelievable Reward for good/great work is more work (no recognition or reward to go with that) The consequence for low performers is usually less work (the better performers take that on) and they slide by for years
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Rutland, VT – October 15, 2014
Pros: gained useful knowlege of the banking environment
Cons: department was disolved.
Enjoyed learning merchant services and helping customers on a daily basis. Strong support staff and enjoyable working environment. Sad that this department as part of a joint venture and all aspects were moved to new company out of state. I am a quick learner and excelled with this favorable team working environment.
Lead Call Center Representative (Current Employee), Burlington, VT – October 14, 2014
Pros: co-workers made it such a enjoyable and friendly environment
Cons: difficult to relay thoughts to management
* A Typical day at work is to come in at 8am, log into the phones and take calls until 5pm. We would have a 1hr lunch break during the day. * I learned a lot about customer service, I feel this job helped me to aquire knowledge about how to handle escalated situations, and as a supervisor that is what I spent my day doing. * The hardest part of the job was figuring out certain customer issues. Some issues just take time to research and figure out. However this was also the most rewarding part of the job. Figuring out a complicated customer issue and being able to contact the customer and tell them that we have found a resolution was enjoyable.
Environment not conducive to conducting financial transactions
Senior Customer Service Associate/Teller (Current Employee), Staten Island, New York – October 10, 2014
Pros: great staff
Cons: long hours. long drive from somerset, nj to staten island, ny.
People's United Bank is an in store bank. People's is open 7 days a week. As a Senior Customer Service Associate I am able to open and close the branch with another associate. The hardest part of the jobs is working at least three days a week open to close - 9AM to 7:30PM. I enjoy working and helping my customer have a great relationship with my bank.
Cons: benefits, pay and they do not promote within.
The management sucks they do not treat their employee's equally, They only promote within their little circle. There is no room for advancement. The company does not look at you as an individual they look at you as a number.
CSA Bank Teller (Current Employee), Lawrence, MA – September 15, 2014
At People's United I have learned how to be comfortable in selling products. A typical work day for me is helping customers out in their need, making deposits and withdrawals. I enjoy helping out a customer and being able to see them leaving the branch satisfied and happy.
