Back Office (Current Employee) – Iselin, NJ – July 11, 2018
Provident has been a great place to work for years. The only reason I'm choosing to look outside is the lack of growth after a certain placement and the lack of planning upper management is willing to provide.
Bank Associate I (Former Employee) – Bricktown, NJ – February 14, 2018
This was a decent company to work for. I worked in the Shore Point branches which were VERY slow so we did a lot of talking and sitting around not doing much. It was kind of maddening because we had sales goals we had to meet monthly and that was very hard to do when only 15 people came into your branch a day and there are 2 other tellers.
very very very bad... ashamed that i wasted my time working there

The job environment was beyond bad. HR is very weak and the language that being used at work wouldn't be even used in a work place. i am ashamed that i worked for this company. its like high school with bulling and bad language and insult.

All they want you to do is sell sell sell!!!!! They treat you like a child. They have huddles everyday,coaching every month on sales only. They want you to have a action plan for the week on how you are going to get sales. You have to make 10 calls a day plus once a month a call night with 20 names to call. They listen in on your calls. Management doesn't have to do any selling. You have to reach your goals every month. If you don't they want answers. Banking has really gotten bad. I've worked here for 15 years and I am so stressed out. This job is going to kill me!!!!! Whatever happen to tellers just being tellers and waiting on customers. Instead we scare them away with sales. They also want you to look into all of the customers accounts and look at all of their transactions whether it be checks they wrote or their use of their debit card.
Full Time Teller - Designated Teller Trainer (Former Employee) – teaneck, nj 07666 – August 8, 2015
I loved working for this company. My manager was extremely accommodating. This company strives for its employees and wants to see them succeed. Many opportunities to move up or around as desired. The only reason I left was because I moved out of New Jersey, and Provident Bank is located in New Jersey only.
I would recommend The Provident Bank to anyone looking in New Jersey.
Bank Teller / Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Jersey City, NJ – January 12, 2015
This particular branch is consistently busy and many different personalities are dealt with on a daily basis. I've learned to have more patience with people over all and how to sell products to consumers. I would say it has definitely been a challenge but I've realized that retail banking is not a field I wish to remain in.
Teller (Former Employee) – Woodbridge NJ – January 11, 2015
Saw a lot of good hard working people lose their jobs because all the bank cares about is meeting sales goals Even though people try their hardest that was never good enough I will never ever associate with that bank or recommend it to anyone who wants job security Management in branches are great but upper management are another story Heartless and do not care about their employees But are scared of the ones who threaten them with lawsuits
The Provident Bank is a great place to work. I learned how to set goals i.e. professional and personal and how to successfully accomplish them. Energetic work environment, everyone works well together.
