In addition to being voted “Best Bank in Morgantown” by the readers of Morgantown magazine, Clear Mountain Bank was recently featured in Morgantown magazine as one of Morgantown’s best employers. The magazine highlighted the bank’s various employee benefits, low employee turnover rate, and the success of the “Clear Mountain Cares” program, as key components to employee satisfaction.
“Our employees frequently comment that they appreciate the family atmosphere of Clear Mountain Bank, and they are proud to work for an organization that is so dedicated to the local community,” states Clint McCabe, chief operating officer of Clear Mountain Bank. “This type of recognition would not be possible without the dedication and teamwork displayed by Clear Mountain Bank employees on a daily basis.”
The roots of Clear Mountain Bank go back to 19th-century Preston County, although its modern name dates back to a 2005 reorganization. Today the bank offers 13 branch offices from Bruceton Mills to Bridgeport to Oakland, Maryland, with six in Morgantown, three of those in Kroger stores.
Paid time off at Clear Mountain Bank starts at 14 days a year and ramps up to 25 days, plus the 10 or so holidays the Federal Reserve Bank observes each year. The bank offers medical, dental and vision insurance as well as health savings accounts. It also offers access to the Teladoc telemedicine service, free to health plan participants and extended to part-time employees as well. The bank provides leave consistent with the Family and Medical Leave Act.
Clear Mountain Bank has historically awarded annual holiday bonuses to its employees. It offers a 401(k) retirement savings plan and matches 50 percent of employee contributions up to the first 4 percent of the deferral amount and also offers profit-sharing annually which is contributed to retirement accounts.

The bank also encourages professional development through tuition assistance of up to $2,500 a year to increase skills related to employees’ positions in the bank.
