Gate City Bank takes pride in providing a stable, flexible, and fun work environment. Many of our employees have been with us for many years, and some their entire careers. We are known for longevity with our employees because we have a reputation where their hard work and talents are valued.
Gate City Bank’s culture values helping our employees make an impactful difference within our community through our Acts of Kindness program which include employee volunteerism and philanthropic giving.
