MyBankTracker rated Suntrust Bank based on the following criteria that includes real customer reviews and bank fees, among others. Our bank report card is a proprietary rating system that highlights the financial health and stability of the bank.
We have been a loyal Sun Trust Customer for 5.5 years and have found them to be totally non customer focused. We made several attempts to re-finance our adjustable mortgage and even applied for hardship with no responses. The mortgage re-set this year to a fair rate but because they took advantage of a 5 year term of falling rates with no effort to help us re-finance, we will never do business with them again. If fact if rates rise we will walk away like so many others have done. No one even bothers to return our calls because we are current and maintain a high credit score. Their attitude is we'll collect and help cover our other loses. They have done nothing with HARP or HEMP to help borrowers.BAD LENDER. STAY AWAY from Sun Trust!
Suntrust blocked my rent payment over google wallet. They have done this before and I had them put a comment in my account not to do it. But they do it anyway. I have used google wallet to pay monthly and have since September. Google wallet is great. It works, it's free, it's immediate. Which is why Suntrust doesn't like it and blocks it. So they block my entire card (which makes it hard to buy groceries) without notifying me (they haven't changed the number on my account even though I have done it online and on the phone with them several times.) When I ask to speak to a manager online they first say there isn't one and then claim he's busy but will call me back (which of course hasn't happened.) I think it's time to change banks for one that doesn't play games with my account.
Been doing business with this particular branch for decades and have seen countless management changes, sadly more so in the last couple of years, and it seems like the talent level gets worse each time. The young lady currently in charge might have just set a brand new low in professionalism and leadership. I am accustomed to knowing the managers of this branch on a personal level and the few times I went there, the door was closed and the cell phone out. This has happened on at least two occasions. Most recently, I needed management assistance with some check payments and I contacted the branch but other members of her staff answered and she never bothered to call back. What is going on?? I could try justifying her behavior but that isn't really my job and, if she can't do hers, maybe she shouldn't be in charge of a banking office that in my opinion has practically unrivaled heritage in McLean. I am beyond disappointed at this stage and it would be real easy to take my business elsewhere but I have family and friends who still bank with Suntrust and deserve a much better point of contact. Change her please!
