MSR II (Former Employee) – Garden Grove, CA – January 15, 2015
Schools First FCU was an amazing company to work for, if I would have gotten a degree in business I would have definitely worked there until retirement. It was a pleasure to work for such an amazing organization. The benefits that they offer their employees are incredible, I have never felt so appreciate working for any company. Management was very understanding and cooperative with scheduling and future goals. Members (clients) are for the most part wonderful people and everyone loves Schools First FCU. A typical day would consist of assisting members as a teller or as a banker, helping them with account transactions, inquires, or problems. What I love about this credit union is that fact that they do not push their employees to push products on the members, and only offer what is necessary and for the good of the member.
highly appreciated, awesome benefits, great people
Retirement Plan Specialist (Current Employee) – Tustin, CA – September 17, 2013
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 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.
I am looking forward, to working in a environment where I continue to learn and progress

Member Service Representative I (Current Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – April 17, 2013
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 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.
