Careers at Peoples Bank
People Come First
Peoples Bank has been a part of the community serving local businesses and residents for over 100 years. From our earliest roots in Lynden, Washington, to our 23 branches across Washington, we believe that offering customers full relationship banking with the highest level of service starts with hiring motivated professionals with enthusiasm for the business, who place value on delivering superior customer service, and who conduct themselves with absolute integrity in everything they do. To learn more about our 'People Come First' philosophy, check out our 2021 Community Report.

Competitive benefits with an emphasis on work-life balance - it's great to work at Peoples Bank.
At Peoples Bank, we know a happy, healthy employee is a productive employee. That's why we established our employee wellness program - Wholepeople. This program includes a $200 Wellness Reimbursement, paid time off for community service and wellness-related activities, and other benefits designed to promote a healthy mind, body, and community.
“The half marathon is something that I would have never considered registering for had it not been for the wellness bonus. For that, I am very thankful to work for a company that offers this bonus as an incentive to improve overall wellness. I am looking forward to training hard over the course of the next month and to hitting the pavement hard.”
-- Kelsea L. | Mortgage Loan Representative
"Thank goodness I had $150 to buy hiking shoes so I didn't have to go barefoot in the snow!"
"I came in like a wrecking ball!"
"I purchased a Slackers Ninjaline kit, ladder, and wheel this weekend. Both of my boys will be using this equipment for their health and my laughter!"
"I used my Wellness money for walking shoes to keep me comfortable when I roamed around in Sweden!"
"My Wellness money was used to register for my first ever half-marathon!"
"We used our Wellness dollars for a martial arts boot camp. We're kickin' it at 5:30 am - Thanks Peoples Bank!"
Our investment in people extends to our local communities through our Community Giving programs which encourages employee volunteerism by providing opportunities for civic involvement and paid time off.
"Nothing brings me greater joy or understanding of the goodness in my own life than through volunteer service and reaching out to those in my community. Last year I helped coordinate a baby-needs drive for our local food bank. I was overwhelmed by the generosity of my co-workers and our Executive Team. Nothing describes the community connection I felt delivering and stocking their shelves with diapers, wipes, formula, cereal, and Pedialyte, along with cash."
-- Erin K. | Training and Development Manager

"The benefits Peoples Bank provides to support health and wellness are indicative of its dedication to ensuring that employees are well taken care of and that their needs are met both in and out of the office. The Bank does a great job of making sure we know these benefits are available to us. They're not hidden benefits, rather they're front and center."
-- Elena D. | Operations Manager
