Senior New Account Representative (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 27, 2017
Working for this company is like looking in the rear view mirror while attempting to drive forward. It's impossible... Just stop while your ahead and look for a career with another company. Thank me later!

I have only been with the company a few short months and can already tell that it's a great place too work. I came from another bank where there was a lot of sales pressure but not here. Also the training is very thorough.
Processor (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 17, 2017
this department is very unorganized , you may have the job title of processor but may be asked to process, do Intake ,subordinations etc with no support at all.The management team really doesn't care how it gets done they just want it done , the lack of support , favoritism , and borderline workplace bullying it is a very unprofessional department with no training at all.
1st Mortgage and Home Equity Loan Processor (Temp) (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 12, 2017
The managerial staff is not helpful, they apply unnecessary pressure, lack of managerial skills, lack of managerial support. Manager is clueless from job duties, do not recommend anyone to work for the mortgage division of Georgia's Own staff is very unprofessional Management applies more than one job duty without support, the management is clueless on team building

If you are looking for a company that cares about the employees as much as the members. Than you need to stop reading and look some where else. They manage their employees as though one warm body were interchangeable with another.

I rather not speak on my experience. Coworkers were awesome helpful we worked as a team that I did enjoy. I didn't feel management was supportive. Nothing was hard about my job. Most enjoyable was assisting members. I love assisting others and making their day.
Enjoyed co-workers but management speaks of teams without creating them.

It seems that full time professional tellers are no longer of interest to the management. They would prefer part time tellers that can be changed at will and will not cost them benefits. It seems like the branches versus the downtown offices...no teamwork is created by management, but required to accomplish goals.
Branch close to home
No Breaks, only 1/2 lunch, changeable schedules, schedules not posted until Thursday or Friday of previous week, difficult to make appointments
Branch Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – January 11, 2015
I have to agree with the comments on the "fear mongering" Human Resources Dept. They are supposed to look out for the best interests of the company while still taking care of the employees. They don't care about the employees and do not coach for improvement. Management is only interested in the numbers and not in improvement. I have seen many people who put their heart and sole into this company for years be treated poorly and no attempt was made to help them improve when the company said they needed to improve. Some of the VPs are of the old management mentality and threatening their teams and these types have no business leading other people. There are VPs here over Branch Ops that are focused on furthering their own interests and not that of the company. A good company believes in growing, developing, training and mentoring their people to success and this company doesn't do that. Moral has come to an all time low and thats sad cause this used to be a great company. Run, don't walk away from this company.
unclear expectations, very disorganized, lack of coaching

My experience working at Georgia's Own was great. I learned a lot about the finance industry. The customers are are very warm and welcoming, and they were very communal. Georgia's Own is Atlanta's #1 credit union by far. Thanks GOCU!
Teller (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – September 8, 2014
my typical day consisted of opening producers, cashing checks, deposits , loan payments, opening and closing accounts. handling other banking insitutions members and their transactions . Management was nice. My co workers knew there was job to be done and did it. The hardest part of the job was leaving all the members that I used to help and build a relationship with. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and offering them the best customer service.
