Things that make you go hmm...

I thought the spin on Simplify and Grow was to eliminate layers of management and silly positions. How is it we now have all these “chief of staff” positions being created thru out the organization? How does leadership justify this in light of all... —  read more

Anything new on layoffs?

I see a lot of job openings lately, which makes me think there is a chance Regions is getting ready for a major round of layoffs. It wouldn't be the first time they hired a bunch of folks to be trained ahead of a layoff. Which is really diabolical... —  read more

id--ts are Taking Over

So Regions has run off their knowledgeable, experienced employees, and they have brought in so called leaders that have never managed more than a Walmart linens department. Some of these branches have become a joke. Does Regions not know that these... —  read more

Will the layoffs ever end?

They keep escorting people out of the building and making us pack their things, even their personal things. We spend hours a day packing up belongings for those they payoff and then have to do our job and their job on top of it with no incentive pay... —  read more

Greed is Good

For those simplified in 2018, feel good knowing that your sacrifice helped others. Specifically it helped management and those that survived with a nice bonus that will be delivered for the $1.5 Billion in Net Income they made. I am sure the greedy... —  read more

Smart Layoffs

Regions does not want the bad rap that comes with layoffs, so they are attempting to make life a living hell so that people will quit on their own. Even the "fully staffed" branches are shorthanded because they have to cover the short-staffed... —  read more

Regions is the problem

What Regions is doing and has been doing is not investing in their people anymore. They stopped. They say that employees asked for the change but I’m not sure what employees they are talking about. It certainly is not the retail side. They were the... —  read more

So sad Regions

Regions is laying off and forcing the wrong people out. The ones that are staying behind are destroying Regions Bank. There is no proper training in any roll at Regions and the only bit of training they provide is around banker integrity. They watch... —  read more

Bad Bad Regions Bank

Horrible what Regions is doing to their employees and their clients. Never seen anything like it. Their warm banking feeling has disappeared. The employees look like washed out zombies whenever I would go into a branch. My banker after many years... —  read more

Evergreen 2018 is the Fakest and Worst Ever!

Half our team was laid offf today.

Why not just call people and tell them not to come back to work ever again rather than call them into an office one by one with security standing outside the door to escort them out. This bank has no compassion for its employees.
