I have been working at American Bank part-time (More than 3 years)
Close group of people. Relaxed. Since it's owned by one owner, they base EOY bonus on earnings. Very strong community bank. Well respected in the community.
Since it is a small bank, it's harder to get promotions. You may have to spend more time in a position than you prefer. They will let people go within the first 90 days if you don't do your job.
Advice to Management
Walk around and get to know the staff.
I applied in-person. I interviewed at American Bank.
At the interview, the bank appears to be like the ideal place to work. Open door policy is offered up, appears the departments want to improve and grow and management appears to be supportive. Only after on-board, the true mirror image of the bank surfaces. All appears shiny and nice on the outside, but once in, most realize the bank is not as once originally thought.
