    The people at Mercantile are great. Overall very positive environment, a lot of involvement with community, a lot of encouragement to be involved in other groups, volunteer, etc. Also, you have a lot of visibility into how the company is run, the vision, etc., which is great. Great benefits, time off, etc. They will invest highly in training you.


    Given that it is a smaller bank, there are not a lot of opportunities for promotion, advancement. The work load can be demanding at times, high expectations.

    Advice to Management

    The importance of mid level management is key to morale and overall happiness of employees.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Mercantile Bank.


    Talked with one of HR people before about my interest. Then when you go in, they ask you to do a test before (analyzing balance sheet and income statement). Standard interview questions after that. Describe strengths, weaknesses, experiences, working with teams, etc.
