Astoria Bank – Why Work For Us?


You can tell when people love what they do. Because they do it better.

Astoria Bank started more than 125 years ago by imagining the way banking should be. That’s why we put people first; and why our employees love what they do; and why we genuinely care about our customers and aren’t just trying to sell them something. That’s why we develop solutions that are more competitive; why we’re committed to the communities we work in; and why we’re creating an online and in-branch experience that’s making life much easier for so many people.

We built Astoria Bank one conversation at a time, together with generations of New Yorkers. Get to know us. When a bank wants to make a difference, there’s no telling what we can help our customers achieve.
