Teller (Current Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – October 8, 2016
Working for the KSFCU is a fantastic learning experience. We do multiple transactions as would a regular bank teller would do. The only difference is that we are aged 16-18. we are a real bank and we do real transactions so i deal with money on a daily bases. We deal with students and teachers as well as parents. The most enjoyable part is getting to know my employer, coworkers and all the members that come in and do transactions.
Senior Member Service Representative (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, Ca – November 13, 2015
I worked here for a little over 5 years. It was a semi professional environment, I learned a lot about the banking industry and was able to grow and adapt to many different positions. Overall, I would say it was a decent work experience for me. The benefits were good, the pay was a little less than I expected at the time I worked for the company.
Student Teller- Internship (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – September 9, 2015
I enjoyed working here in my senior year in high school. I gained a lot of knowledge and met a lot of people. I enjoyed learning how to become a teller and I use my banking skills in everyday life when I am budgeting my funds. I enjoyed working here.
MSR 1 (Internship) (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – July 30, 2015
It was a great place to work at. Everyday always ended up great. I always received free donuts. No matter what, I always learned something new in each department. Management skills was used frequently everyday. No matter what, I had to manage my time properly when on the teller line. My co-workers were awesome. They were always there to help me out with new assignments. The hardest part of the job was handling thousands of money a day without missing up. But after a while, I got the hang of it and became a good teller. The most enjoyable part of the job was creating a trusting relationship with the members.
Morning Donuts, Good atmosphere, Friendly co-workers
Bank Teller (Current Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – April 15, 2015
Everyday i help members with transactions, and try to have the patience to deal with them. I learned how to be extremely calm and not let the members comments get to me or others. My management team was awesome very patient and made the work place enjoyable Co-workers we all got together like a family and even do things occasionally with each other outside of work. Hardest part of the job was just dealing with the emotions of the members and some of the drama they brought in The most enjoyable would be helping people and enjoying the environment all the co-workers have with each other.
good pay, and able to speak with senior management at anytime
no benefits for part time workers and limited hours/shifts

The Credit Union is a wonderful place to work if you don't want to advance. The opportunities for moving forward are limited, and seemed to be reserved for those people who are favored by upper management for not rocking the boat. Those with a voice are discouraged and left behind.
Member Services Representative Intern (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – November 25, 2013
I've learned a lot, as intern. There was nothing hard that i couldn't over come. The members are amazing, and the people i use to work with are amazing, fun people every friendly! The most enjoyable part of my day was helping members and helping them what they needed.
Working here felt as if you were working in a sweat shop. Not very enjoyable at all.
Mortgage Loan Officer (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – October 5, 2013
Day started with returning the hundreds of phone messages that were left on phone overnight. This took up probably the minimum of 1-2 hours depending on how much complaining the caller did. Did not learn much here except that a credit union pales to a banking as far as leadership, management, assistance etc. Management of the home loan center was a joke. If you needed assistance you were on your own. The manager would send you to the underwriter, she would send you to the manager, so on and so forth. You would not receive any help at all. Understaffed and very overworked. Co workers were so overwhelmed with their own issues and work that they could not assist you either, but we understood as we were in the same boat and at least could bounce the frustration off each other. Cannot think of one enjoyable part of this job. I almost had a complete breakdown working at this employer.
Good benefits nothing out of the ordinary really for a full time job.
Worse place I have ever worked for. No assistance when needed, management did not back you up, could go on and on.
Member Service Representative (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – July 26, 2013
I helped a lot of people with my time as a teller. I learned about federal regulations as well as Kern Schools policies and proceedures. Management was always very professional and respectful. My co-workers were very nice and we were all like family on our off time. The hardest part of the job was trying to remember all the codes before they changes their systems. Once they changed the systems being used doing transactions became extremely easy.

Kern Schools is one of the best small companies to work for in Kern County. Although sometimes it could get really busy and hectic the people who work there show the greatest compassion towards not only each other but to the members they serve. While they are going through a bit of a structural change in moving some branches and opening new ones it has been a bit of an awkward transition but I have full confidence Kern Schools will do great. The most enjoyable part of working at Kern Schools is not only the people you work with but also the people that come in to do their banking. Working at KSFCU has taught me so much from how to deal with disgruntled people to how to change toner in a printer. It was truly a great experience that I won't soon forget.
Internship MSR (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – December 21, 2012
Being a MSR is an amazing job as an intern I have learned so much from many of the supervisors. I enjoy making transactions, selling products, and cash handling. My co workers are wonderful they are constantly kind, funny, and talkative to our members. The hardest part of the internship is that I am not constantly in the credit union. Most enjoyable would be that i am a hard worker and very organized I check for all my transactions I take.
Productive but able to wear jeans and have potlucks on ocassion.
