Focus on the phrasing: “If you enjoy a challenge and thrive in a fast-paced, progressive, innovative culture with a company who is on the leading edge of the financial industry, we’d like to talk to you about joining our team.”

Note the words: Challenge, fast -paced, progressive, innovative culture, leading edge, edge.

These words or terms also may be associated with working in a very stressful environment.

Why must METABANK employees work in a fast -paced culture?

Why must METABANK employees work in a bank that is progressive and innovative? What is wrong with tried and true. If the rules keep changing, and as a former customer of METABANK, I observed that METABANK constantly changed the rules governing their products without telling the customers ahead of time. METABANK indicated that they would do this in their own fine print of the original contract. It is by design then that METABANK seeks to keep their customer base in the dark, on the lurch because they are in the process of taking advantage of ordinary citizens by design and for the benefit of the METABANK CEO’s.

METABANK customer service personnel had obviously been instructed to read from a list of reasons when customers phone in to complain, and the list was of very bogus reasons that had nothing to do with what I had experienced by using METABANK’s product. METABANK has basically turned a deaf ear to the real and genuine complaints being made by customers.

Being asked to lie to others who are being taken advantage of by corporate policies within METABANK would become cumbersome for an ordinary person rather quickly. Someone who has no other options to earn a living wage and/or who cannot empathize with the plight of METABANK customers who are being scammed by the rules that METABANK created for just that purpose may choose to put up with working in that kind of an environment. They are part of the scam and also victims of that scam.

It should also be noted that it is banks like METABANK who are responsible for the economic problems that ordinary citizens are facing at this time. METABANK has made huge donations to Steve King’s campaign. It is big money corporate entities who are making lots and lots of money for their CEO’s while ordinary citizens continue to suffer.

Then I saw the following question in Time Opinion online:

Does “Stress” Hide Deeper Social Problems?

By Dana Becker

Stress

When Walter Cannon, Harvard physiologist and pioneer of stress research, first used the term “stress” in the 1920s, he was referring to what he called the “disturbing conditions” to which people react physiologically with a “fight or flight” response (adrenalin release; speeded-up heartbeat; elevated blood sugar).

Today when we say we’re “stressed out,” what we’re typically referring to is a psychological or emotional state, and we worry that stress will compromise our immune system functioning, increasing our vulnerability to disease.

Stress is now an inside job:  it’s feeling “stressed” that causes our problems, not the situations and conditions that make us feel “stressed out” in the first place. Instead of thinking about stress as something outside us, it’s now become integral to the self. So the problem of stress has become our own personal predicament to solve, and there’s no dearth of advice about how to do this:  eat more kale, get some therapy, take a yoga class.

The message is:  change yourself, change your lifestyle, or learn to adapt to the stress.

Consider what it means to accept this way of thinking about stress.

If women believe that it’s our job to manage the stress of combining paid employment and family work, we’re more likely to “de-stress” by putting more bath oil in the bath and less likely to work toward changing family-unfriendly workplace policies or to agitate for universal daycare.

If we view people who live below the poverty line the way Chief of Cardiology at Kaiser Richmond Medical Center does, as people who live “a more stressful life” in a “community that produces high stress hormones in people,” according to Killer Stress: National Geographic Special, then we’re more likely to offer them psychotherapy or lifestyle advice and less likely to confront the societal problems of economic inequality and neighborhood violence.

This is the question at hand that needs to be addressed that underscores the negative aspects for how METABANK routinely does business. METABANK operates using a business concept that is sick, but they push their  psychosis off on the general public. METABANK blames their customers for any problem that the customer may encounter by using a METABANK product…. That is really sick thinking!!!!

Though it may seem that we’re so preoccupied with stress and its effects because we’re just a nation of middle-class overdoers living in an era of warp-speed technological change, there’s another reason why we’ve come to rely on the idea of stress to explain our lives to us:   (MetaBank seeks out employees who buy into the concept of this era of warp-speed technological change as being something desirable when it is nothing but sick)

The idea of stress does some very heavy lifting for us as a society by helping us avoid the uncertainty and instability that comes along with real social change. While we’re having a national discussion about the high incidence of PTSD among soldiers returning from combat, for example, we’re not having a national debate about the advisability of sending soldiers into combat in the age of the IED. 

There’s no amount of counseling, kale, or yoga — even if these were available or affordable to everyone in the U.S. — that will alter the economic, political, and social forces that sustain poverty or war in the age of terrorism, or what we glibly call “work-family conflict.” We’re going to have to throw out the bath oil with the bath water if we’re going to tackle the social problems that actually create the stress we bemoan today.

The competitive aspect of METABANK that is encouraged by their CEO’s is just the tip of the iceberg about the sickness that envelopes how METABANK operates.

However, we agree with what she had to say. we also saw that how we were  treated by METABANK as their customers to be an indication of some very sick internal policies. So many other customers have complained about METABANK indicating they were treated in a similarly dastardly manner. The shear numbers of abuses made on their own customer base by METABANK shows that they are doing a scam of numbers based on the sheer volume of our current population size and not based on providing  a real or genuine customer service. METABANK’s policies and practices need to be stopped.  

Simply do not do business with METABANK. Do not partner with METABANK. Do not work at METABANK.
