Teller (Former Employee) – Lebanon, NH – September 9, 2017
God aweful job with no advancement opportunities, favoritism runs high in this company, and there is no advancement based on actual skill. Sales training is non-existent yet they want you to sell, sell, sell! And the incentive compensation that they pay should be illegal. If your going to work at a financial institution, stay away from this one!!
P.S.- And if the the assistant branch manager crashes into your car, make sure you call the police!
Over the last few years the company has seen a culture shift for the worst. Many years ago it used to be a great place to work, a place you were happy and proud to be a part of. Now.....not so much.
Now the only way you can get ahead is who you know. Managers will hold employees back or give bad reviews just so they cannot leave a specific department. The worst part is they are protected by the senior management so nothing will ever be done.
If you want a job where they expect the world and pay you nothing, this is the place for you.
None (Former Employee) – Portsmouth, NH – August 3, 2016
Former employee. Gave many years to NECU . The last 10 years saw many management changes including some who had no clue what they were doing but has staff who did work while they took credit!! Became like a big bank and lost the member focus! Just get referrals and sell whether the member needs it or not... If you didn't kiss up to the right people you were targeted until you quit or weren't useful anymore. Was a good place at one point until changes in management came along. Surprised they haven't been sued for treatment of employees and harassment!!!
Management, treatment of dependable employees, favoritism
TELLER (Current Employee) – Portsmouth, NH – July 1, 2015
A typical day at work consist of easy people to work with, fair management, and a team that becomes family. Would highly recommend this work place for anyone who wants to get involved in a long term career.
A typical day involves working at the main branch in Portsmouth NH and traveling to the other branches throughout the state of NH. Depending on the needs of the branch and Facilities manager who I directly reported to. I had only five co-workers in my department at the main branch but I traveled to all the branches and was known very well by all the branch managers. The hardest part of the job had to due with me being the first person they put into that position I had to lead the way on what my roles were and what tools we needed. Lack of tools at the start was also a small issue. I learned a great deal of things while at NECU. Banking rules to HVAC repair, and so IT support. I found the whole job enjoyable. The best job I have had to this point. I would not have left if I didn't quit to finish my degree in California.

Too much gossiping and talking about the skills (or perceived lack thereof) of other employees. Management lacked proper skills when speaking with staff. These were usually more confrontational than constructive/supportive, even if first "infringement". Longer time employees were allowed to be openly hostile to some new employees, because "that's just the way they are". Staffing needs not meeting client/member needs.
/medical/Dental Benefits from the start. Financial Institution, so several holidays, paid from the start.
Teller (Former Employee) – Rochester, NH – February 19, 2014
A typical day at work was interacting with members and co-workers, handling all members banking transactions, and evening drawer balancing. I learned the banking system and rules and regulations, was supposed to be cross trained as the greeter but that never happened. Management wasn't too great, I felt looked down upon because I was young, and nothing I did was good enough for her. My co-workers were the best, it was like a family. The hardest part was trying to please my boss and the most enjoyable part was interacting with the public and getting to know them.
ACH Operations Coordinator (Former Employee) – Portsmouth, NH – May 8, 2012
23 years at NECU and the last 5 were very stressfull, management would not help when asked. Pay level for the amount of work expected was ridiculous. Co-workers were vindictive and to envoled in throwing people under the bus for advancement. No room for moving up in company, they very rarely hire from within.
Treatened my job many times by management, when any issues were brought up.
Would not recommend this company to work for at all.

I thoroughly enjoyed the experiences I had while employed with Northeast Credit Union. I also gained valuable job skills and public trust. Overall it was a very rewarding experience and provided me with skills needed to move on to other types of public trust positions.
