Day to Day

I get the opportunity to interact with great people who enjoy helping community members with their financial needs. I celebrate associates' successes like when they get great feedback from customers about their service experience or recognize work done to acheive a particular goal. I also get to teach associates techniques that might help them do better in their job. I also get to talk with our customers and hear how much they like banking with our bank.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

Don't expect anything. Set your sights on a company / organization whose mission / morals / values you share and can truly support. Be happy with an entry level position, prepared to work long and hard to build a reputation and brand that will support your career aspirations.
