Former Assistant Branch Manager at SunTrust Bank

over 2 years ago
Working as an ABM within SunTrust (and really any retail bank) requires ability to not only manage the team from a sales perspective, but also requires the ability to have a working operational knowledge of the industry and the various federal requirements. I would say that this position leans more towards the operational side of the branch, but this has to be balanced with the ability to coach, mentor, and guide the sales team (tellers and financial representatives) to meet and exceed the often-times aggressive sales goals. Time management is a key element to success, as well as the ability to multi-task within the branch.
