Operations Department

"I am a member of the Operations Department.  My responsibilities include data input of new loan information, changing and updating existing information, problem solving, researching, and assisting with new product innovation.  I have been a Miners Bank employee for 44 years.  In that time, I took advantage of an opportunity to get a business degree, be a member of two local banking organizations, and one business women's organization.  But, the most valuable experience has been meeting wonderful people, making lifelong friends, and in our local area, being known as a part of Miners Bank.  I would tell an potential employee to listen and learn.  Asking questions and being interested will provide a wealth of knowledge to anyone pursuing a career in banking." - Mary Jane Appleby, Loan Operations Specialist


Finance Department

"I am the Chief Financial Officer and I am responsible for financial operations of Miners Bank and the corporation, Phoenix Bancorp, Inc.  I joined the Miners Bank team in 2009.  The most satisfying aspect of my position is the opportunity to learn new things and to work closely with a great team.  And, I would tell a potential employee that Miners Bank is a growing organization with increasing opportunities, a competitive compensation and benefits package, and a group of positive and supportive team members." -              Leo Blecker, Chief Financial Officer


Branch Administration

"My position is full-time Teller in the Minersville Branch.  In my position, I am responsible for performing all aspects of Teller work.  I have been a Miners Bank employee for 10 years.  The most satisfying aspect of my positon would be the interaction with my customers, maintaining a pleasant and respectful atmosphere, and truly feeling concern for them.  Customer service is most important and if I can get a customer to leave with a smile on their face, that is what is satisfying to me.  My advice would be to keep a positive attitude, complete your job to the best of your ability, and join us as a team member!" - Jennie Kosmisky
