Hancock and Whitney Bank – Why Work For Us?


How we were born

In the late 1800s, the Gulf Coast and two new banks were booming. South Mississippians looked to Hancock Bank to help manage prosperity created by agriculture, seafood, timber and tourism. Sixty miles to the west, New Orleans and Whitney Bank thrived in the wake of the World Cotton Expo.

For over a hundred years, Hancock and Whitney grew with and because of the people and places of the Gulf South. As the banks expanded into new towns and cities, they quickly became trusted, reliable business and community partners. Many smaller regional banks became part of Hancock and Whitney over the years; and, in December 2010, Hancock and Whitney came together.

The two neighbors had always shared similar history, geography and values. Merging was the next strategic step in the relationship, establishing an even stronger organization grounded in regional tradition and dedicated to regional success. 

Who we are

Today, history and commitment are still at the heart of who we are. Common experience and ideals connect us to local people and communities. We help individuals, families and businesses protect and grow the financial future they deserve and the quality of life we all cherish.

Under the Hancock Bank and Whitney Bank names and at locations in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas, we offer contemporary banking options secured by solid ideals, pride in where we live and confidence in how far we can go together.

Like our founders, we believe in building a company that never knows completion—an organization that keeps getting better. Across this special region we call home, our heritage unites us, our communities inspire us and Our Mission, Our Purpose, Our Promise to associates and Our Core Values guide us as we move forward.

    I have been working at Hancock and Whitney Bank full-time

    Pros

    I recently interviewed with Hancock and Whitney Bank. Don't know if I have the job yet, however, great group of friendly people who are focused on hiring top talent. Everyone from the recruiter to the top executives seemed genuine, happy to work there and eager to make the whole process pleasant for potential candidates. First class organization with first class people.

    Cons

    Only cons appear to be some of the negative reviews about the bank being focused on "selling". Seems a little silly because it is after all a business that is focused on growth and stability, which in-turn benefits the employee and the community where they work.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on current course of being an aggressive, friendly and family-oriented institution.
