@roweboat:  I think you should go for it! I wouldn’t want to work at a place where they talk about me behind my back. Plus better hours & more pay would be awesome! If they offered me that job, I’d take it without any regrets. And this is coming from someone who is very loyal to my employers… I turned down a good job because they wouldn’t let me give any notice to my current job (they wanted me to start in 2 days!). There were other reasons, but that was my main concern.

It sounds like a better opportunity as well as a potentially better work environment. Go for it.

@roweboat:  Congrats on the interview!


It sounds like workplace culture is important to you.  What it boils down to is, what is most important to you in a job?  The people?  The boss?  Culture?  Money?  Ability to progress?  Once you narrow that down, it will be easier to figure out which place is the best fit for you by asking the right questions in the interview.  You are also interviewing THEM so take the time to really think about what you want to learn about the company.  If it doesn’t feel right, it’s probably not the best move.  Sometimes the grass isn’t greener on the other side.  Trust your gut.  Good luck!

I used to work at a bank and now I work at a credit union lol I also am a part time teller now but I am hoping to get a promotion within 6 months (and fairly confident I can, they promote within ALL. THE. TIME. & I have even applied to a full time position on the platform side even though I’ve only been with them a month & got encouraging words from my manager!)

I love the credit union! I loved my bank too and the reason I left wasn’t to work where I am now. I had about 10 months of no work just school in between but I am thrilled to have the opportunity to experience a credit union. I much prefer it! good luck to you on your interview!!

Do it. I made a lateral move and although it was a bit awkward during the transition from the old company to the new one, I would do it again in a heartbeat. My mom has worked for banks for over 30 years and she has had to switch companies a few times in order to move up.

Definitely go for it! Sometimes lateral moves can save your sanity, which makes them totally worth it. Good luck!
