Virginia Credit is a good place to work. They have employee night with free meal and entertainment, they have a night where they give awards.
Teller I (Former Employee), Richmond, VAAugust 18, 2014
Pros: we were offered little things like $5.00 gift certicates for doing so many referrals, free dinners for doing the most financial service referrals for the branch, they give awards for various things such as employee of the quarter and for the year.
Cons: sometimes there was not enough help when needed. for example vacations, days off, short staff.
A typicla day at the Virginia Credit Union branch where I worked was constructive. The day began with everyone getting their cash boxes out and booting up their computers. My co-workers were good team mates and we would help each other with different sales and referrals. The hardest part of the day was when the the member traffic slowed down, but there – more... were things for us to do. I would say the most enjoyable part of the day was when the members came in (I knew most of them personally) and there were fun exchanges between them and our staff. – less

Great place to work if you like sales
Teller II (Former Employee), Farmville VAFebruary 3, 2014
Pros: great members and liked that the corporation was very involved in helping the community
Cons: no breaks and sometimes no lunch
Work with customers on a daily basis, meeting their banking needs by either answering or referring their financial questions to the appropriate individuals. Securing the financial institution nightly. Responding to customer inquiries regarding account balances. Responsible for ordering the branch money on a bi-weekly basis.
Ordered branch supplies as – more... needed. Filled in for the Teller Supervisor as needed this includes balancing the vault, filling the TCD’s and selling or buying money from the tellers as needed. Was also the contact for community outreach at this branch, set out the collection boxes and tried to get the branch involved. The hardest part of this job was the down time and trying to find something to do to make the day go by. – less

VACU cares about their members.
Lending Advisor (Current Employee), Richmond, VAOctober 30, 2013
VACU is a great place to work compared to the other financial institutions I've worked for. The members are valued and their feedback is heard. My co-workers are great and management is fair. I enjoy working with the members and assisting them with lending decisions. The hardest part of the job is not being able to help someone when they are enduring – more... a difficult economy and job market. – less

Horrible
Mortgage Division (Former Employee), Mortgage DivisonJune 21, 2013
Pros: great parking
Cons: absolutely horrible moral
Such a nice credit union with a Mortgage Division that is infected by a limited few that have absolutely crushed Moral, Attitude, and Personal Character.

Sales Leadership Incompetent. Operations Leadership on a Self Destruct Mission. Mortgage Division turnover HUGE for a reason. Racial inequality a Problem. TEAM is a such a Hollow word through out – more... the division.

Again, Such a nice Credit Union with a Mortgage Division with Stage 3 cancer. – less

Micro managed by "executive team", Managers have no say
Branch Manager (Former Employee), richmond vaMarch 8, 2013
Cons: linited lunches, very weak benefits, micro managed, long hours
long work days in the branches,, short staffed, they take staff from busy loactions toplace in slow branches. Branches are micro managed, manageeers cannot make any decisions without area manager approval. Members make very demanding request and are always right, no support from upper managers. Be prepaired to stay all day when it snows or bad weather, – more... upper management does care about assocites. Support teams are not friendly or helpful!

no negoation for salary or for increases! – less

Stable company with above-average benefits. Some great long-time employees
lower management (Former Employee), richmondFebruary 27, 2013
Pros: good benefits, employee education
Cons: hard to take full lunchtime, due to pressing issues to solve
It was an enjoyable job until the branches became too short-staffed, due to atrition. Most employees work well together- as a team, despite that rapid growth of the credit union. Each day was different- new and exciting problems to solve

Team oriented, collaborative and member and employee focued organization that was run with highly experienced leaders at all levels.
Vice President, IT Strategy and Governance (Former Employee), Richmond, VAMay 31, 2012
Pros: career advacement, feedom of speech, education and new ideas were always encouraged.
Cons: smaller raises
A place that encouraged individuality, creativity, new ideas, process improvement and career progression and highly focused on education.

It's managed by experienced leaders at all levels who work hard and who appreciate employees at all levels.

Employees are self motivated and are always prepared to serve their members (customers) with all their – more... financial needs - they truy believe in their well being - that is the culture at this organization at all levels.

There were challenges all the time that I had to overcome - but nothing I can say that I did not overcome - becasue I had the tools, resources and encouragement.

It was fun to work there - great work and life balance - lots of employee acknowledgement and rewards and recogniztion at all levels. – less

I was a dedicated employee and took great pride in my postion and ability levels
Call Center Representative (Former Employee), Richmond, VAMay 20, 2012
Pros: great benefit package, department lunches
Cons: too many "clicks" and inside politics, lack of true recognition for job performance
While an employee at VACU I had a multitude of various positions in different departments over the thirteen year tenure. Based on personal work ethics, I always gave my best and wanted to learn my duties thoroughly. I preferred to do the job right the first time. Helping members was rewarding for me as I took this responsibility seriously.
