Teamwork Working Hard


“Working with State Bank of Southern Utah has been a privilege. Not very often does a person come across an employer that really cares and understands their employees. As an intern I′m treated as a valued employee and feel that I′m an asset to the bank. The learning and working conditions of the bank are in harmony with one another.”
“As an intern I was taught what to do and the supervisor then stepped away and let me go to work without looking over my shoulder, but was right there when I had a question about a certain process. I learned something new every day here at the bank.”
“I′m thankful to State Bank for the time they′ve allowed me to have to learn to be a better business man, better employee, but most of all how to be a better human being.”
