Vice President (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – January 9, 2016
CertusBank was a great opportunity to create a plan from the beginning and then execute on that plan. I think the best part in how I grew in this job was being able to grow in a market where I knew very little about. I'm a Jacksonville native and getting business is much easier in a market you've supported for over 30 years. Creating a plan for a market I didn't know and be able to coach and support the team and have quick success that will be something I'm most proud of.
Nice People, Still getting their feet underneath them
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Charlotte – July 1, 2013
Upper management has great ideas of where they want the organization to go, however, they're not realistic. If you are looking to advance in the organization, you would most likely have to relocate to it's headquarters in Greenville, SC. The company started out with the vision of customer service being the focus then changed it to sales, therefore they're no different than any other big bank. The pay is pretty good but this is a growing company, that's looking to build it's book of business, which forces you to think like a business owner. If you don't have that true self motivation, this is not the organization for you. No bonuses to motivate you (just saying)!
Using the Company's vision and guiding principles to give our team and customers an unparalleled experience. I've learned to tell them what I can do for them, to take responsibility, let me find the answers, excellence is the only standard, and to ask if there is anything else I can do for you. The most ejoyable part of the job is to love what you are doing and having fun at work.
Had a culture that allowed teammates to grow and feel empowered to make a difference.
Director of Retail Banking (Former Employee) – Fl, SC, NC, Georgia – November 19, 2015
CertusBank was my favorite and most enjoyable place to work. I was able to execute ideas that positively impacted the vision of the company. I was able to create and develop a team that was afforded the same opportunities.
