What is the best way to apply for a position?

Go to our Careers Portal to browse our positions and complete an American Federal Application. You may contact American Federal Human Resources by email to [email protected], by phone to 701-461-5915, or by mail to M.

What do I do after I complete an Application?

After receiving your Application, we will review your qualifications to see if they match the position and banking location for which you are applying.  If they do, a Human Resources representative will contact you to discuss next steps.  If we do not have a position matching your qualifications, we will retain your application according to state guidelines.   We encourage you to re-apply if you have interest in another position in another banking location or in other opportunities.

What are the steps in the hiring process?

If we determine you meet the qualifications for a position, a Human Resources representative will contact you to schedule a time to discuss your background, experience and the position.  If it seems the position may be a good fit for you, Human Resources will schedule you for interviews.  Our goal is to make the interview process convenient and as informative for you as possible.  Reference checks, background checks and assessments are also part of the hiring process.
