Here's what our employees say about Pacific Premier Bank...

On Visibility

I've worked at big banks before, and the culture is drastically different from PPB. There, I was just a number among hundreds even thousands – but at PPB, everyone takes the time to learn my name.

Paul G.Service Desk Manager

On Employee Impact

Our people are what makes Pacific Premier Bank the top performing publicly traded community bank in the US. I love being in a position where I can help our employees, so they can keep doing what they do best – providing exceptional customer service to our clients.

Brian A.1st VP/Director of HR

On Opportunity

I started with the Bank as a teller looking to start a career with a company that promoted hard work and employee advancement. In the seven years I have been with the Bank, I have been given the resources and opportunities allowing me to grow into the position I have today.

Kasandra C.VP/Branch Service Manager

Not only are there opportunities to advance, but also opportunities to move around within the Bank, which sets us apart. When I first started at PPB, I was in the Business Banking division, and then decided to pursue a role in Accounting/Finance. With the right training and guidance, PPB helped make that happen for me.

Ryan O.Staff Accountant

On Giving Back

It's a wonderful feeling to know that my job includes more than helping the Bank grow in size and profit. It's also about being part of a team that is dedicated to giving back to our local communities and schools, which is very rewarding.

Sherri S.1st VP/CRA Officer

On Valuing Our Employees

When I first joined PPB, one of the things I noticed instantly was how well this Bank takes care of its employees. It's really the little things that add to the big picture of why this Bank is a great place to work.
