A challenging but rewarding experience
Retirement Plan Specialist (Current Employee), Tustin, CASeptember 17, 2013
Pros: great benfits and support staff.
A typical day at Schools First Federal Credit Union is to provide technical support to over 30 local branches with members who have IRA accounts and retirement plans sponsored through their employers, who are primarily public, charter, private schools and community colleges.

I learned a great deal of information about plan specifics, such as; eligible – more... distributions, loans, hardship distributions, and state sponsored pension plans; CALSTRS, CALPERS, PERS AND PARS.

The hardest part of the job was to remember so much detailed information about various retirement plans.

The most enjoyable part of the job was to help individuals to better understand their retirement plans and how to use them effectively. – less

The environment at SchoolsFirst is great to be in. There is such a family-feel with co-workers. And, definitely, Members are always first - but Employees are a close second.

The dark side of management
Member Service Representative I (Current Employee), Santa Ana, CAApril 17, 2013
Pros: free lunches, good benefits
Cons: poor management
The company benefits are amazing. Even part timers get full medical, dental, and vision benefits. The values of this company are great even though management tries to shove it down your throat every second so that it starts feeling fake. Management does not work with your schedule if you are part time. Although the company is called Schools First, they – more... could care less about your education. They just want your full availability at $12 an hour or so (even with a degree). Managers go on power trips to validate themselves. There is an open door policy but the assistant managers come off fake at best. Customer service is always difficult but to have someone standing behind you watching your every move just makes for a stressful environment. – less
