Just the Career for You!

Our Story:
The First, headquartered in Hattiesburg, MS began as a dream on a back porch in South Mississippi. A group of local businessmen talked about creating a bank that would take care of business by taking care of people, one customer at a time... and The First was born. Now, that dream has grown from a back porch to cities and towns all over south Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, Florida, and Georgia. The First is more than a bank, because it is still a group of friends building relationships and taking care of business one customer at a time!
Our Philosophy on Customer Service:

Customer Service at The First means understanding our customers, then using the resources we have to meet all of their financial service needs. Employees are expected to treat customers with the utmost respect, always greeting them quickly, calling them by name (not just as another account number), and showing them hospitality at all times.
