We Hire The Best

We are committed to excellence. Whether it is the service that we provide, the products that we offer, or the technology that keeps our information secure, we are committed. It is important that our customers feel this commitment every time they talk to us. We hire people that are able to connect, listen and deliver the best solutions to our customers and communicate with integrity every time.

Selection Process

Our selection process allows you to showcase your knowledge, skills and abilities.  Since we seek the best and brightest, we hope that you show us your best by completing an online employment application and attaching a professional resume that shows why you are the best person for the job. 


The most qualified candidates will be contacted by a member of our Talent Acquisition Team through email, phone or text.  During this time, we’ll discuss your experience and how it relates to the job you applied for.  We encourage you to ask questions and keep them coming!

Interview Process

The interview process is a two-way experience. We want to get to know you, and you should get to know us. Final candidates will also have an opportunity to meet with the hiring manager. This is another great opportunity to get to know more about the job, company and our team.

Dress For Success

Be sure to dress the part. Excellence is not only in the experience and knowledge you bring, but also expressed in your presentation. We have a business casual to business Dress Code policy, which allows the flexibility to wear jeans on Fridays! Dressing like you have the job, or the next level job, is a good starting point.


Prior to making final decisions, we complete a background assessment that includes criminal, credit and college degree verifications. We will also spend time contacting your professional references. This process is necessary (we are a bank after all) and important to us. Generally, this process takes 3-5 business days, but ,don't worry, we will communicate with you along the way. 


The best part about our job is making exciting job offers! When a position is offered, a member of the Talent Acquisition Team will share the details with you, along with the benefits you’re eligible for. When you choose to join our team we will provide a personalized onboarding and training plan.

We believe embracing human diversity makes us a better bank. We know it makes us better people.

Employees with dissimilar backgrounds, perspectives, opinions and lifestyles help us understand the motivations and desires of our many different customers. Thus, we will strive to maintain a workforce that reflects the increasing diversity of the communities we serve by ensuring equal employment opportunity for all persons without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex/gender (including gender identity), national origin, age, height, weight, disability, medical condition, genetic information, sexual orientation, disabled or Vietnam era veteran, other forms of military status, marital status, or other protected characteristics.
