What first attracted me to Bar Harbor Bank & Trust is that they are all about their employees, customers, and community. To me, that is everything I want to be part of. Every employee wants to do their very best and work together as a team to create the best experience for our customers. I really enjoy being a part of such a positive group of people who inspire you to be the best you can be.

My experience and onboarding here as a new hire has been awesome. Before my first day, I had an outline of everything I would be doing for my first two weeks. I very much appreciated this, and it made me feel valued as an employee and set up for success.

Kirstie Carter
Executive Administrative & Corporate Secretary

I had just graduated high school and a friend urged me to apply for a full time Customer Service Representative (CSR) position at the Bank. Since then, the Bank has helped me grow beyond what I ever imagined. After being hired as a Seasonal CSR, I quickly moved into Commercial and eventually into a Commercial Loan Assistant position. I am now Executive Administrative & Corporate Secretary.

Customer Service Representative

The company has supported me and helped me develop my skillset. Working here has strengthened my customer service approach to assist people in various situations. I enjoy adapting to each unique customer and uncover what they are looking for from their bank. If I had to describe the work culture in three words it would be community, accommodation, and dedicated.

I could see this [the move from Branch Relationship Manager to Mortgage Loan Originator] as an opportunity to retool my career path in the lending wheelhouse as I truly enjoy this aspect of banking and finance – specifically with mortgage clients. I believe that the Bar Harbor Bank & Trust mortgage group is growing, and I believe this opportunity will continue to keep me challenged as well as keep me connected to the central Maine retail branches as we work together.
