Great place to work
Member Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLApril 12, 2018
I loved the company and people I worked with back then. The president also gave back to the employees. I banked with them and they are now more bank than credit union so I don't know if that reflects the changes in its work culture there as well.

Poor Management

The mnanagement structure is poor at every level. New ideas are ignored. They operate like every other bank. If you like working for banks, then go for it.

Fairwinds Credit Union is a great place to work
COMMERCIAL SPECIAL ASSETS OFFICER (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLSeptember 9, 2017
Fairwinds Credit Union is a great place to work. I've worked with them for 9 years and have developed many friends, associates and business contacts. The culture at Fairwinds promotes member advocacy and family. They take the mission of promoting financial freedom seriously and provide excellent customer service with this in mind.
Fairwinds won the Orlando's Best Place to Work on numerous occasions. I highly recommend Fairwinds Credit Union as a place to work and do business.
Pros
Active in the community
Cons
Limited growth potential

Mortgage Loan Originator/ Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLAugust 11, 2017
I love working for Fairwinds the pay is great & I have a wonderful crew but I would rather have one main area to focus on, such as mortgages. In my current role, I wear many different hats & I feel I can be a more productive employee focusing in one main area

All about the bottom line
Member Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLAugust 3, 2017
All the company cares about is the bottom line. At the branch you need to make referrals or else you will be written up and there is never enough staffing and call center is a joke. The VP is a horrible person, he picks and chooses favorites and if you aren't one be prepared to pack your things. Turnover is so bad like you wouldn't believe.
Pros
Pay is decent
Cons

Member Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLJune 27, 2017
This is the worst company I have worked for the call center is no place where you can advance. The managers are unhelpful. The thing they care about is you answering the phone.

Financial Advisor Representative (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLJune 9, 2017
They trained you and help you advance to your maximum capacity achieving your professional goals. Benefits are also well proportioned and is my experience you can advance within. Recognizing your efforts are a common practice and you will be rewarded for them.

Pressured Sales & Lots of turnover
Customer Service Representative II (Former Employee) –  Lake Mary, FLMay 2, 2016
As a MSR (teller) sales goals are strongly strongly encouraged to meet every day if goal not meet monthly job can be terminated. Most turn over is 3 months to 1 year do to transaction errors and stress do to pressured sales goals causing unhappiness with job or laid off because of sales goals not meet. Good job for used car sales men back ground.
Pros
Hour's and pay good for mothers and College students
Cons
pressured sales and lay offs

Okay company
member service representative / call center (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLSeptember 16, 2015
Focus on referral goals a lot. quit a few MODs and some of them are not very helpful. Release time counts against you, have to answer calls within three rings. Member can only stay on hold for two minutes at a time. You have to keep checking with member every two minutes or you will get an IM from manager letting you know member on hold for more than two minutes. This can be Very annoying especially if you are waiting on an answer or help from management which can take forever for them to get back at you. Also the policy about attendance isn't the best. You are allowed the first three and any beyond that will count as a point against you. It doesn't matter if you have a doctors note. By your third one, you will get a write up. The call center can be stressful, a 30 minute lunch break isn't enough to get your mind right. Calls are recorded and you are evaluated every month on five picked at random. MODs are always eating, most of them and gossiping.
Pros
meeting new people
Cons
short lunch, referral goals

Fun and productive
Mbr Srvc Rep / Mmbr Srvc Mngmnt (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLMarch 29, 2015
Typical day would be to handle customers transaction in a timely manner. Offer products that are offered. Being as this is a credit union, and having worked in a bank, learned that credit unions are more geared towards the success of their members. Management, overall coached in areas of sales and kept on top of your numbers. Helped in areas in which you were struggling. Co-workers were so much fun to work with. It was like family. Hardest part of the job was trying to offer the same product to the same customers that frequent the credit union on a daily basis. Most enjoyable were the holidays and the different ways that they were incorporated into offering products.
Pros
Contests between branches and winning a day out at Universal Studios
Cons
Meeting goals, the pressure.
