Sovereign bank Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Santander Bank, N. A., formerly Sovereign Bank, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Spanish Santander Group. It is based in Boston and its principal market is the northeastern United States. It has $57.5 billion in deposits, operates about 650 retail banking offices and over 2,000 ATMs, and employs approximately 9,800 people. It offers an array of financial services and products including retail banking, mortgages, corporate banking, cash management, credit card, capital markets, trust and wealth management, and insurance. Sovereign Bank was rebranded as Santander Bank on October 17, 2013; the stadium, arena, and performing arts center for which it has naming rights were also rebranded.
Sovereign Bank has terrible customer service and inefficient methods, Rich Temple shared his experience on wallethub.com
"Did you know it could take almost 3 hours to open a savings or checking account, as well as add one name on to a safe deposit box access? I didn’t either until I arrived at this bank. I would cut them a little slack because we were replacing an account that had a fraud perpetrated upon it, but still… Every process is woefully inefficient, there is little regard given to customer experience, and the bankers adjoining the banker we were dealing with were so noisy that I couldn’t hear the banker that I was talking to. This bank seems to do everything they can to make the banking experience MORE difficult and, subsequent to our lengthy visit when I had to call their customer support to reinstate our e-banking account they hung up on me twice after long wait times on hold. Stay away from these folks – if there’s ANY other bank nearby, go there instead!"
Senior Project Manager (Risk Data Aggregation) says"The company has extreme over turn. People come and go there weekly and the people that stay are not necessarily the top performers but are those that are usually bi-lingual, understand those Latin and South America culture and can blend in with the Mexico and Spin workforce. There is a company called Everest that is owned by one of the board members and it seems that they have an in getting people in and getting their contracts extended Pay well for contractorsConstant layoffs, high contractor turnover and not very good training"

No employee can reach their potential if the proper tools are not provided, inadequate systems and management is setting anyone up for failure."
BOM (Former Employee) says"Santander is not a place where you can grow within the company. Real managers are extremely hard to come by. Cannot trust anyone. For some odd reason managers want to see each other branches fail. Management is to busy talking out of both sides of their mouth to recognize real talent. If you do not have a solid team, you will fail. I would never ever recommend working at Santander Bank. Wasted a lot of my time with the company. PLEASE do not waste your time.FriendsLack of professionalism within Districts. Low pay. No work life balance."

Bank Teller (Former Employee) says"I started on my very first day eager to penetrate the banking industry. It was completely different from my last job and career path in the food service industry. Training was great for the most part. I trained at a branch in Bryn Mawr and every single person I met was bright and encouraging and helpful and positive and kind. Especially the manager. Training was tough only because it was computer based and the first time being trained inside a branch"

Such a tense and very fake atmosphere. Managers are paid to sit on their phones and business managers are paid for putting Christmas trees up around the office at Christmas.... and to walk round the office looking good"
Float Teller (Former Employee) says"Santander is one of the few banks where you can get promoted if you either have an affair with your mgr or regional mgr or if you have connections. Otherwise forget about being promoted. Most of these jobs are posted just to be legally compliant ,the candidates are selected long time ago. Branches are always short staff. Rel"
