We Invest in Our Employees

Fishback Financial Corporation, the holding company for First Bank & Trust, is a family company. We have deep Midwest roots and throughout the years, have remained an independent community institution.

One way we serve our communities is by creating jobs we’d want our own family members to have. We employ over 500 people in full-time, part-time, and internship positions. And our employees are like family (they’re also part owners). Not only is working for us rewarding, but you’ll be a part of a positive culture and company who gives back to the community.

Benefits Beyond the Basics

In addition to an enjoyable work environment, we support our employees by offering great benefits. And we go beyond the basics you expect.

  • Comprehensive insurance options
    • We want you to have peace of mind when it comes to your and your family’s well-being. We offer generous health, dental, vision, and life insurance.  Plus optional access to extra life, disability, and other forms of insurance.
  • 401(k) and ESOP profit sharing
    • Our employees are owners. And we match up to 7% of your contributions to your retirement account.
  • Wellness program
    • Our Healthy Way program incentivizes gym membership and hosts education programs and challenges throughout the year.
  • Education
    • We have a robust training program that goes beyond the initial orientation. We want you to keep learning. That’s why we offer tuition reimbursement, job shadowing, mentorship programs, and more.
  • Volunteer service hours
    • We’ll give you paid time off work to volunteer in the community.
