Your manager makes or breaks you. If you don't get along with your manager, you don't want to be a part of the team. They need to have their management try a little harder to understand their employees.
fast paced environement with many coworkers working as a team
Homemaker (Former Employee) – Villanova, PA – March 11, 2018
Sovereign Bank Mortgage was a very fast paced environment. I worked independently with the loan officers and clients and truly enjoyed helping those going through the experience of applying for a loan. It can be a very unsettling to many people and I was proud of the work that I accomplished assisting our clients.

Full Time Personal Banker (Former Employee) – Cedar Park, TX – February 20, 2018
Sovereign was a great company to work for. They had great benefits, and really cared about their employees. I would say their only downfall was not getting rid of employees that were not an asset to the company.
Early Stage Collections (Former Employee) – Reading, PA – February 14, 2018
The managers place more stress on the employees than the job itself does. The job is communicating with Customers in regards to their accounts with the bank, The customers are usually frustrated by a situation involving their bank accounts and our job is to resolve the issue.
Professional Intern (Former Employee) – Wyomissing, PA – January 30, 2018
Sovereign provided me with an amazing opportunity while interning there that gave me hands on work experience in a large business accounting department. I was able to participate in everyday business activities and was even put in charge of a personal project finding unclaimed assets for the company. The staff was always welcoming, kind, and happy to answer any questions during my time there.

TELLER, CUSTOMER SERVICE (Former Employee) – Allentown, PA – January 17, 2018
Very nice and clean and organized. My boss was nice but the coworkers were competitive because you have to fill your quota to get so many accounts each month. Some branches cooperate and divide the quota among themselves.
