Dollar Bank – Why Work For Us?


Our roots are deeply tied to the people, commerce and values of the western Pennsylvania and northeastern Ohio regions. For 160 years, Dollar Bank has grown to become a large, full service, regional bank committed to providing the highest quality of banking services to individuals and businesses. Today, Dollar Bank operates more than 60 branch offices and loan centers throughout the Pittsburgh and Cleveland metropolitan areas.

Mutually Inspired

How mutuality has inspired solid growth.
Dollar Bank has a position of safety and soundness that is envied by other financial institutions. As the largest independent mutual bank in the nation, Dollar Bank has no shareholders to answer to and therefore is not fixated on stock price. * We are able to focus solely on Dollar Bank customers... the products that meet their needs, the services that offer them convenience and a banking experience that lets them know that they are what is most important to this institution.

Commitment to longevity is also apparent in the day-to-day management of our institution...

  • Dollar Bank has never participated in sub-prime lending.
  • The quality of our loan portfolio remains strong and we continue to lend money to individuals and businesses.
  • Federal government regulators have consistently considered Dollar Bank as “well capitalized”, which represents the highest category of financial strength and soundness.
  • Semi Annual Statement of Condition 2015

Mutuality inspires our customers and communities.
Banking services are fundamental to daily life. Individuals are free to pursue their dreams (be inspired) when they are not preoccupied with the safety of their life savings, the reliability of the service behind their bill payments or the ability to finance homes or education.

Dollar Bank knows the people and the communities that we serve. Our employees live and work in these communities. They participate in the decisions of local business organizations. This local knowledge is reflected in the loans we underwrite and the causes we support as an institution and member of the community.

A community's success relies upon the businesses that make up that community... their dependability, integrity and availability to those individuals that rely upon them. Dollar Bank's presence as an employer and as a lending institution, as well as the banking services provided has served our communities well for over 150 years.

Here For the Future 
At its core, banking has always been a business of responsibility and earning the confidence of our customers. The leaders of Dollar Bank feel an intense responsibility to remain independent and provide products and services that grow out of understanding our customers' needs, both individual and business. That is what has set Dollar Bank apart in the minds of our customers and has made us one of the oldest continuously operating banks in our region. That's what will carry Dollar Bank into the future.


Dollar Bank Community Involvement in Pittsburgh and Cleveland

Dollar Bank has a long history of involvement in programs that benefit the southwestern Pennsylvania and northeastern Ohio regions.

Dollar Bank has used its financial expertise to create our Mortgages For Mothers Program, which offers credit counseling and mortgage programs to make homeownership an affordable option to families of whatever means. We also host a variety of Home Buying, Identity Theft, Home Improvement and Reverse Mortgage Seminars educating the public about these important financial issues.

In addition, our employees actively support the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania and the United Ways of Greater Cleveland and Allegheny County by organizing events throughout the year at our many facilities. Strong involvement with the communities we serve has always been and will remain a priority for our organization.

    I have been working at Dollar Bank full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Made a few long lasting friendships. Benefit compensation is okay but could be better . Wish we had our Pension Plan back.

    Cons

    Micro-managed and treated like a kid. At times feel like you are not appreciated with knowledge and skills you bring to the the company with years of experience working for other companies. Underpaid for your skills and experience.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to know the talent they have and compensate them for their harwork and experience.
