Teller (Current Employee), Draper, UT – April 29, 2015
Pros: Great health/dental benefits, positive work environment, promotions with drawing for tickets to something or extra cash on your paycheck, and flexible work schedule
I enjoy my job quite a bit. When I get to work I set up and we open the branch. Throughout the day I help members with various transactions. Problem solving skills are a big part of this job. At the end – more... of the day we balance and do closing duties. I make it seem easy, but there are different aspects of this job such as completing online courses to become more informed of policies and procedures, going to trainings at the training center, cross selling products and services, planning promotions, assigned teller duties such as cleaning the branch or ordering supplies, and doing one-on-ones with supervisors to set goals and go over our development. They try to move you up as quick as possible based on how comfortable you feel with taking on more responsibility. They are very interactive with their employees and really adhere to your needs. Very flexible with school or other work schedules. I haven't once wanted to leave this job. Their core values along with mission statement make me feel obligated to this company. I've never had that feeling with any other employer. The members love coming in and feel like it's a welcoming family type environment. – less
Staff Accountant (Current Employee), Riverdale, UT – January 4, 2015
A typical day in the department is busy with all the reconciliations that needed to be done. Those in the department are great to work with. Management is great. I learned so much so far working in the department, its been great getting to know the accounting process for a credit union and to learn some of the system administration for the department as well.
Certified Teller (Former Employee), Bountiful, UT – July 8, 2014
Pros: nothing too hard you can't do with a little help, if needed.
Cons: tried to get you so cross sale products, (ex. visa's) even if you know that the member doesn't need the product.
Started the day off with your drawer balance from the previous day. Helped members throughout the day with their financial questions/concerns. Management was awesome, very good relationship with my supervisor – more... Max Jones. Can' t really say there was anything too hard to do in this position, just some was more time consuming, that's why I'm looking for another job, one that will challenge me more, but will still give me that social interaction that I love. – less
Teller (Former Employee), Ogden, UT – June 18, 2014
A typical day at work included service to others. It was rewarding being able to come up with solutions for the members I helped. I learned how to go above and beyond what I was asked to do so I could make those I connected with feel as if they were important.

Branch - Teller (Former Employee), Orem, UT – January 27, 2014
I loved working here. The people were really great to work with and they were really close knit. I really felt like it was a family friendly company. The down side I would have to say is moving forward or up the ladder. I had a hard time with that. But still I would prefer this job to many others that I have had.

Teller (Former Employee), Centerville, UT – December 6, 2013
America First was a great place to work because the people there are great and it is a very friendly environment. I learned many things about the financial industry like the standards that operate in the industry and how it works. The hardest part of the job was dealing with unhappy members while the most enjoyable part of the job was making them happy.
Teller (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – October 7, 2013
Pros: fun, simple, great environment
Cons: short shifts to start, low starting wage
This really is a great place to work. I didn't last very long because of an unfortunate miscommunication between myself and a co worker. Neither of us still work for that company but I am adult enough – more... to understand the company's stance on what happened. A typical day at work included your standard customer interaction as well as training yourself through company guided courses and asking your supervisor any questions you had about anything. – less
Member Service Representative, Teller (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UT – August 28, 2013
Pros: bonus night and lagoon day... if they don't cancel it
Cons: extremely hard to advance with their ever changing mind
Great manager and co-workers at the branch. It is fun who you will work with and the members are great! But, there is not much room for advancement, so it is very frustrating. But it is not necessarily – more... anyones fault, the policies are ALWAYS changing, so you can't help it. You could be training for a position to advance to, and a month before, they will change the requirements. It is a great job to get nowhere, ever. – less
