Commercial Credit Analyst (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – October 10, 2017
Sunflower bank offers less than competitive salary with the expectation for a highly paid employee. Very poor upper management that does not value the employees. Purely results driven with no regard to the individuals. Comments from upper management have been "it's like wack a mole, I'm here to fire people".
Bank Teller/Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – July 30, 2017
Overall, the experience was very good at Sunflower Bank. My only complaint is they do not have competitive pay amongst the banking world. Also specific managers are very poor, and they do not treat their employees with respect.
Banker (Current Employee) – Salina, KS – July 4, 2017
The benefits are great. Management is not the best. I do not feel like they communicate well with each other or their employees. Training needs serious help. The training is not job related at all and is not followed through with very well. The company as whole is ok, however I feel that your expected to do a job that you are not properly trained for and that there is no accountability for your actions if you do something wrong.
Sunflower gave me great opportunity to grow and advance. My boss was great to work for. The hours were normal, the benefit package was awesome. They tried for a community bank feel and worked to keep the employees engaged in the community. I left because I was relocating to another state. .
Corporate Office (Former Employee) – KS – May 17, 2017
I worked for Sunflower for a year and was subject to the worst working conditions I've ever experienced. I have over 12 years of experience in my field and five of them are in banking and I can say - hands down - Sunflower Bank is the most poorly run, politically-charged, small-minded, and hostile working environment I've ever encountered or even heard of from colleagues.
If you're deseparate, apply. But, if you are seasoned in your specialty this is not the place for you. You will not be happy or appreciated, and success is nill here.
The company's outlook is poor, and the staff is chock full of small town folks looking to make their mark. I honestly feel that upper management couldn't make it elsewhere and landed their positions with Sunflower.
Please, for your well-being, stay away from Sunflower Bank.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Junction City – April 10, 2017
One of the worst jobs I've ever had. Constantly hiring and firing with no clear vision. Management will never tell you please or thank you even when you work open to close six days a week because they fired everyone and couldn't be bothered to pick up a shift. After all why should they already work their 40 hrs a week. Unless you get in with the upper management you will have to claw your way to the top and by top I mean Customer Service Representative. They hire people who have absolutely no idea what they are doing with zero management experience because they want a "clean slate". Leaving was the best choice I could have made. If you like to be taken advantage of and do everyone else's work all while being bullied and told you aren't a good enough worker then Sunflower Bank is the place for you!
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Junction City, KS – April 5, 2017
These people will throw you under the bus in order to get ahead. It is a revolving door of the other employees. They hire people for positions that they are not qualified for and expect every thing to be okay. And the minute you're sick, the management will complain about having to cover your shift.
One of the worse places I have worked at. Very little training and if you have no banking background it is very stressful. Hard to ask questions when those higher up dont know the job. There are favorites and a lot of cadiness from supervisors who have "privileges". Have to watch your back constantly. Never so happy to leave.
Teller (Former Employee) – Junction City, KS – December 16, 2016
They claim they can't keep people because it's a "transient community". In reality you can't keep people with that horrible management team. You have to watch your back and cover your own butt otherwise you can and will be stabbed in the back and thrown under the bus
What they said in the interview is nothing like it really is. If you are not a supervisor you do not matter. They single people out and think of anything to push you to quit. You never hear a great job or we appreciate you. You only hear what you are doing wrong. Nothing you do is right. I wouldn't wish anybody work for this place. If you don't know anybody in the bank or have any ties with them or not a supervisor you do not matter
Sunflower Bank is mismanaged and has a hostile culture.
Compliance Administrator (Former Employee) – Overland Park, KS – October 2, 2016
Sunflower Bank management is not receptive to the recommendations given by employees which they hired to make such recommendations. Technology gets a 2/10 as crucial functions are being performed with archaic technologies. Employees are graded punitively on their ability to work with this technology and correct a myriad of errors it causes. Unfortunately, the company has a small business mindset that is trapped in the body of a growing company's body and key positions are held by those with inadequate experience. There is a hostile company culture and business lines frequently sling mud at one another. The outlook for the company's future is not positive unless there are significant changes.
Enhance Due Diligence Analyst I (Current Employee) – Salina, KS – September 7, 2016
Sunflower is an excellent company to work for. Management is willing to provide opportunities to develop your career and willing to listen. Management and HR are also flexible with the daily work hours for employees with children, or individuals who want to mix up the usual 8 to 5 workday.
Teller (Former Employee) – Salina, KS – June 18, 2016
In general this is a horrible company to work for. They say they're family oriented but they're really not. The 9th street branch is horrible! Hours are 8am to 8pm and Saturday 8am to 4pm! They only have one person consistently opening (they play favorites) so everyone has to 'share' even when they said that the people who work there the longest get opening shifts. The teller supervisor is an idiot who likes to sit all day and not help any one. But, hey! If these sound like things you like. Then be my guest.
