The Bank is committed to offering competitive and affordable benefits to its employees, including…

Employee Stock Owner Plan (ESOP)

Our ESOP is a qualified retirement benefit plan designed to provide our employees with an ownership interest in the Bank by investing in our stock. As a result, our employees are significant owners of the Company. By having ownership in Pathfinder Bank, we hope to instill in our employees that each and every person that works here makes a difference.

Pathfinder Bank offers a competitive health and wellness package including medical, dental, eye, life insurance, flexible spending accounts with employer contributions, and Paid Time Off for part time and full-time employees, including government holidays.

Career Growth

We value our own and strive to hire from within. We value our employees and their contributions to our success. There are many opportunities to develop and grow within the bank. Employees are encouraged to attend banking seminars, take bank-related courses, cross train and job-shadow to help prepare them for promotions and increase their knowledge of banking rules, regulations, and procedures.

Special Product Pricing

Our employees are able to take advantage of the banking experience they help to create. Whether it's discounts on mortgage loans, no fee regular checking and savings accounts, and free checks and money orders, they enjoy the very best!


Our employees are building their retirement with pre-tax dollars while taking advantage of our generous 401(k) match and profit sharing program.

Employee Assistance Program

We recognize that a wide range of problems not directly associated with one's job can have an effect on an employee's life and job performance. The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is designed to help employees and their families get assistance on a confidential, professional, and humane basis for problems relating to physical illness, emotional stress, drinking, drugs, marital or family distress, or other difficulties.
