I enjoyed working within the Commercial Loan Department. An average day would be post closing one to five files, depending on the amount of paperwork I had to review, my coworkers where always available to assist when I needed it and management always kept everyone on top of the latest rules and compliance changes. Every holiday we always had a food day which was a chore I enjoyed doing, I did not mind taking the lead on making sure everyone was participating and fed. The hardest part of my job, besides leaving, was the attorney prepared loan documents. I always had to take my time in reading them and making sure all of the documents regarding the loan(s) had the same consistent verbiage.
Teller (Former Employee) – Freehold, NJ – July 19, 2016
When I first went to Vineland and Mt. Laurel for orientation/training, I thought I was going to LOVE the company, which i do. Everyone is so nice and helpful so just keep in mind I'm not bashing the whole company, just simply the branch I worked in. The manger quite clearly played "favorites". I had asked for a day off, due to moving and I was denied. A service specialist on the desk one day had asked to leave early, and have the next day off.. for a CONCERT. Her wish was granted. I was also asked to take a shorter vacation to come in and help out because another teller had requested vacation that week also, i did cut my vacation short. Months later, I put in a PTO request for another vacation.. was denied because someone else was going on vacation. The way the branch was ran was extremely UNPROFESSIONAL. Would never recommend working there... not to mention, the pay was just as lousy as the manager. The other tellers for the most part were great, but just as miserable as I was.

I don't see many job openings happening as the company is downsizing and closing branches. I feel like I am stuck in a position at the bottom and I haven't seen a raise or bonus in the 2 years that I've worked there.
Personal Banker II (Former Employee) – Millville, NJ – January 19, 2016
I was the #1 Banker for 5 years in the whole state of NJ. Sun Bank is really a great company to work for. the reason I left is because I wanted to go into management. Sun Bank was Eliminating the Asst. Manager position.
Personal Banker (Former Employee) – New jersey – August 27, 2015
Expectancy theory was broken over and over again. The amount of effort it took to get sales incentives sucked. They have no idea how to manage employees or managers. Everythign is decentralized causing chaos throughout. The actual workers were great but it was hard to motivate sice expectancy and equity was completly off. They should thank they lucky stars they are not sued for wrongful termination and ADA issues/
Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Somers Point, NJ – March 26, 2015
typical day: busy good place to develop people skills and get to know the people in your community. Most co-workers are helpful and pleasant to work with. It might be a little bit of a hassle if you need a day off or need to be late a few hours unexpetedly
Senior Loan Officer (Former Employee) – Floram Park, NJ – March 16, 2015
When you tell your Sales Stall you are going to make a major push on increasing mortgage originations on a Thursday and then eliminated to whole division the 3 days later. It leaves a bad taste in you mouth
Vice President Secondary Marketing (Current Employee) – Mount Laurel, NJ – September 17, 2014
I enjoyed working as part of a team in the residential mortgage department helping turnaround the department into a compliant business for the bank. However it was determined by executive management to eliminate 40% of the workforce including the residential mortgage division. Very disappointing since I wanted to be at Sun for many many years.
not much accountability or decision making, cohesive vision from leadership
Serve as primary liaison between Commercial Banking customers, relationship team members and various operations groups in order to ensure superior levels of customer service. Provide assistance and support to loan officers with daily needs of borrowers including loan advances/payments, overdrafts, opening DDA accounts and wire transfers. Provide direct support to 3 loan officers and handle a portfolio of over 80 customer relationships.
The most enjoyable part of the job was having support from co-workers in order to accomplish daily tasks.
A typical day consisted of driving between counties to a meeting in Cumberland County, back to Gloucester County to meet with clients and then up to Burlington County to the office. After a long day of travel it was hours of paperwork at home. Management was not "plugged in" to what was needed. Tools to perform the job were not properly provided, and several senior management "leaders" used hostile language and were abusive to employees around me. Some of the employees engaged in practices that were not professional.
Teller Supervisor (Current Employee) – Old Bridge, NJ – July 3, 2012
I have been with the company for almost 5 years. I have learned a lot throughout my time. I feel as the company has taken care of me up until this point but now feel that it is time for me to find new opportunities along with learning new skills. I like a fast paced environment which I currently do not have at my current job. I am also looking for an opportunity to be a part of a team who is goal-oriented.
