Trustmark Benefits

At Trustmark, we provide a competitive and comprehensive benefits package that is intended to enhance the well-being of our associates by supporting their physical, mental and financial health.

undefinedOur health benefits allow employees to choose from among three medical plans, four dental plans and two vison plans, all with premiums partially subsidized by the company. Trustmark also provides an annual contribution to covered associates’ health savings accounts to help defray medical costs. We offer tools that allow our employees to become more educated healthcare consumers, so their healthcare dollars go farther. Our robust wellness programs support and motivate our associates as they continue on their path to lifelong well-being.

Financial benefits include a competitive pay structure with an opportunity for incentive compensation. But that’s not all. We also offer a 401(k) plan with a generous company match. Associates enjoy company-paid life insurance and disability coverage and have the option to take advantage of additional individual life coverage at discounted rates.

Work-life balance is more than a buzzword at the Trustmark Companies. Our approach helps associates strike a healthy balance between work and family commitments. We offer flexible scheduling and, in some cases, allow telecommuting from home. Associates enjoy our 37.5-hour workweek, generous vacation policy and paid holidays each year.

Our caring commitment to our associates and the greater good is evident at Trustmark. The Trustmark Foundation makes donations to organizations where employee volunteer, and employees can also nominate charities in their own communities for Foundation funding. We offer college scholarships to the children of our associates to help defray tuition costs for deserving students. We promote employee volunteerism by offering volunteer opportunities to our associates, including participation in United Way Days of Caring.

Trustmark in the Community

Each year, Trustmark pledges a percentage of pre-tax earnings to support our local communities. Trustmark’s unique, two-level service commitment involves associates working as individuals and together with the company to give back to the community and improve the quality of life for all.

The Trustmark Foundation, established in 1984, actively supports associate volunteerism through program donations and volunteer grants. In 2014, the Foundation distributed more than $1.1 million in cash and gifts-in-kind. Foundation grants and programs directly support the United Way, community health, safety, education, and urban and cultural enrichment.

Each year at the Lake Forest headquarters, associates participate in a Giving Tree with Lake County Cares to help provide Christmas gifts for needy families in Lake County. In 2015, over 300 wishes were filled.

Through the Impact Educator Grant Program, classroom programs in Lake County, Illinois, can receive up to $1,000 for promoting healthy lifestyles through innovative educational programs. The Impact program is available to all Lake County, Illinois, public and not-for-profit school educators -- kindergarten through high school. Headquartered in Lake Forest, Ill., Trustmark has a long history of supporting the local communities it serves.

    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Trustmark Companies (New York, NY).


    Only one phone interview and then they let me know a few weeks later. A couple of my classmates had on campus interviews, but over the phone is more likely. Very standard interview questions.
