SunTrust Powder Springs, Cobb, GA (US) isn't hiring right now. Check out all SunTrust jobs
I worked at SunTrust full-time (More than 3 years)
Decent benefits. Community Service culture. Decent wages once hired.
SALES. SALES. SALES. Tellers bring in a LOT of business to branch banking and on't get compensated properly, or recognized. Branch managers come across as money hungry. Company is definitely cut-throat in terms of performance. Not a lot of sales training, so if you aren't naturally good at sales, you won't last a full quarter. Raises and promotions are extremely minimal, if at all.
Advice to Management
Value your branch employees.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SunTrust (Powder Springs, Cobb, GA (US)) in April 2011.
Unemployment in Ga is hovering over 10% so needless to say I was very excited to land an interview. I was laid off along with several other employees from another bank who was going through financial reorganization. I applied on SunTrust website and was fortunate to receive an invitation for a phone interview. I was even more excited to land a face to face interview.
I interviewed with the Br. Manager and the Regional Manager. The interview appears to be going well until the Br. Manager asked the Regional Manager if he had any questions for me. The Regional Manager first question was in a very accusatory tone he asked me “Companies do not lay-off their best employees why were you laid-off”. He followed that question with another unbelievable question he asked “with a strong resume as yours why are you applying for a job like this”. I felt like he has no idea what is going on in the job market. Then he said to me I have seen many candidates with similar background to yours fail at this job because they only take the job to get into the company. He said the company policy sates you must remain in a position for a year before a transfer will be approved. He also said to me that I will hate coming to work every day. He made a few more surprising statements which caught by surprise.
My advice for other candidate is, if you really want to work for Sun Trust in the NE region be prepared for all types of questions…even questions that appear to discredit you.
