Local grass roots company that puts their members ahead of the gains of the Credit Union
Branch Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – August 31, 2012
Although Amplify is going through a serious shuffle in the upper management to find their footing in the changing economy, I thoroughly enjoyed working here. I learned how to preserve the long term business of the company by focusing on the relationship with members other than the short term profit. Additionally, the fact that it is a small company helped me learn how to adapt to situations for which there was no precedent set. I was allowed to grow my branch in any way I wanted, so long as stayed with in the ethical guidelines while still profiting.
The hardest part of this job has been changing the outlook of the employees who have been at the company for many years. Introducing a new sales model in a gradual, low impact manner that does not alter their perception while maintaining the values for which the company stands.
A typical day at work included daily meetings to discuss all current happenings, coaching the associates on their performance, making sales calls independently as well as with business partners, and face to face member contact
