Branch Specialist (Former Employee) – Florida – November 26, 2017
This is a job in the banking industry. Simply got tired of the harassment and racism. Had to part ways. It was a family type atmosphere until new people started coming in. I was always being approached for what I said how I said it but when another worker would do the same thing nothing would be said to them.
I have never worked for a better group of people. The workplace culture was very demanding and they expected you to get your work done on time. The hardest part of the position was telling realtors, buyers that their was a problem getting the loan closed. The best part of the job was when everything went according to plan and the loan closed on time. A typical day at work was gathering all the docs from the borrower. Making sure the application and credit report match and they didn't leave anything off the application. Which could make a big difference in their ratio.Once everything is in the computer system rerun DU or LP. I have learned that you never tell anyone they are approved before the U/W has signed off with the approval.
First, the manager were not helpful, as they said they would be. They make you work 9+ hours with only ONE 30 min lunch, no breaks. They have criminals working there. They always rush us to rush the customers off the phone as well as lie to them (This is the Telephone Banking Center)
Customer focus has gone by the wayside, replaced by profit. There used to be a much more customer friendly approach to banking. Staffing levels have been reduced dramatically at the cost of customer service.

Always worked tirelessly. Atmosphere however was more apt to tell you what you were doing wrong rather than right. Good community bank. Need a few more "cheerleaders" to remind the associates of their importance.

They desperately needed someone so hired quickly. When the position opened up, the roly-poly manager lady told me that I did not have initiative, which was an absolute lie, because I was coming from a job where I was constantly promoted based on my initiative and suggestion to management. I worked very well while I was there and my team members were even rooting for me to get the job. The person who got the position told me eventually that she was promised a position when she worked there once on a merger project. This woman has defamed my character and they should be exposed to their racist culture.
I really enjoyed working for Seacoast the job was through a temp-agency and he contract ended. I would like to go back to work there in the future . I have applied several times and they keep telling me they chose someone else so I stopped applying.
teller (Former Employee) – Port Saint Lucie, FL – April 18, 2017
Arrive about 10:45 to be able to set up for 11:00 shift, usually ran3 lane drive thru, processed customer transactions, ordering supplies for the branch, scanning of documents, answering of phones and various other duties and closing of the branch.
This job was ok but they work you till you're ill breaks are short and there is not enough training, and they are always under staffed. If you want to do four diffrent jobs while you're speaking with customers and other tasks then it's great for you.
South Florida Bank acquiring banks in Volusia County
Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Ormond Beach, FL – January 12, 2017
I lost my job through the merger and acquisition with Seacoast Bank. My branch was closed and I and my staff of three were let go. The were generous and gave a termination package and a bonus for staying on through the transition, which I did.
Support Engineer (Former Employee) – Stuart, FL – July 5, 2016
It was a good place to work for at first, really connected to the community. However, once they started buying up other banks they expanded way too fast and lost track of their managers(and making people managers with no experience) and employees in the process. It really hurt employee morale when concerns were just brushed off and more responsibilities given to the same positions with no extra compensation.
VP, Market Manager (Current Employee) – Port Saint Lucie, FL – March 10, 2016
Seacoast is a growing company that offers opportunities for many. As the industry changes, Seacoast has adapted to the changing environment based on consumer demand and competes well with many other big banks in our area. The roles they provide are challenging and give you an opportunity to grow with the company as long as you are willing to grow with them. Roles are ever changing and evolving, being bored is not an option unless you choose to be. As they continue to streamline and grow, management opportunities are more slim than in the past.
