My career with First Bank began 10 years ago as a teller. Throughout the years, I have advanced within the company and was promoted to several different positions. Today, I am a lender and am grateful to work for a company that provides opportunities for their employees to succeed. With their support, I have grown into the business professional I am today.
Consumer Loan Officer
As a new employee with almost a year of service under my belt, I can honestly say First Bank is one of the best places I have ever had the privilege to work at! Our bank thrives off of employee engagement and earning customers’ respect through good old-fashioned customer service and appreciation. Our staff works together every day as a team to create a culture of mutual respect, understanding, service excellence, professionalism, growth, learning, and yes…even FUN! We believe in thriving together. One amazing way First Bank works to maintain its wonderful work environment is by hosting monthly culture meetings where we all learn new life skill techniques that help us grow and develop professionally and personally. Many employees, including myself, have even started implementing these techniques into our personal lives! Every day we are encouraged to actively help build the bank we want to work in. The bank also strives to support the health of its employees through a well-designed wellness program that is intended to care for the whole person. And this bank’s “thrive together” mentality also extends into the communities we serve. Our branches are always looking for fun, interactive ways to support the communities we serve. To sum it all up, First Bank embraces it employees, customers, and communities. Why? Because in the end, we want people to be happy and succeed in their life’s undertakings. I am truly blessed to be able to work for such an amazing bank!
Loan Support Specialist
I had over 18 years of banking experience when I joined First Bank. Some of it was good, some bad. First Bank has allowed me the opportunity to use some of that past experience to give input on operational policies and procedures. First Bank has a long history in the communities we serve, and we’re a name that people recognize and respect. So when I say I work for First Bank, I can be proud of that. Decisions are made locally about donations, sponsorships and the causes in our community that the bank supports, which is important to me. I love the people I work with. In my position, I have had the opportunity to work with people in many of our branch locations and I really enjoy that. Because we’re part of the Glacier Family of Banks, I’ve also had the opportunity to work with people at other bank divisions, and be part of some larger projects. We have a ton of opportunity to advance in our careers if we want to - not only at First Bank, but also through the whole Glacier Family of Banks. And for many of them, you don’t have to move! Our company provides great benefits, including the wellness program and the retirement plan. I love the people I work with, and I really enjoy working here.
I have worked for other financial institutions and the time I have spent with First Bank has been my absolute favorite. I feel like I really am part of a working team here. I have support from the management within my branch, but also those in upper management. First Bank is centered on making sure everyone feels and KNOWS that they are valued at every position. I can honestly say that because I started from a Teller and felt that I was important all the way to being the Operations Manager. Another thing that stands out to me is First Bank’s monthly culture meetings, where we gather as a team and discuss a range of topics relating back to our culture as an organization. We are given tools to help us to be more accountable, and we work together to thrive as a team. We discuss the good and the difficult, and how to deal with change. I know that good morale is a priority to First Bank and in my experience, that is something rare to find in an employer. The opportunities I have gotten at First Bank are more than I expected and I feel confident every single day that I have made the correct choice in building my career here. I know that this is the bank that is the best fit for me!
