Consumer Loan Officer (Former Employee) – La Crosse, WI – April 12, 2018
I think overall the company is good and makes a real impact on the community and it's members. I don't like that their slogan goes against what i was taught by management. The slogan was "Marine Credit Union" "You're more then a credit score". I know that we can't help every member but i was denying so many members and potentially new members because of their credit score. During the interview process i was told one thing when the job and training process was completely different. The CEO came in with a week left in training and completely changed to whole training style that left a lot of people unsettled and eventually left the company.
Good benefits, reasonable pay, good work enviroment
My thoughts on Marine Credit Union are that it is a good place to initially learn about the banking industry. When it comes to what other individuals are saying about this company i would say the reviews are spot on. I would not recommend this company to anyone.
I would not recommend employment with Marine for many reasons, but the issue that they cant seem to get under control is a copacetic management team. They are constantly shifting management from one branch to another, each with different approval and management styles. Daily tasks are highly micromanaged during the slow season and makes it nearly unbearable to go into work. The turnaround with this organization is a joke. If the average lifespan of lenders across the organization is more than 12mo Id be greatly surprised. Unrealistic income and advancement opportunities are dangled like a carrot during interviews to entice potential candidates and unrealistic goals are set for those looking to advance with the company. I would steer clear and work for any one of the plethora of Credit Unions in your area over working for this organization.

Loans are very hard to come by! You have to call past customers and honestly beg them to get a loan even if they don’t need one after 2 months when they got the first one. Why you ask? Because no one ever walks in and the dealerships don’t trust you because it takes 4 days for management to look at the deals because they worry about there friends loans before new people’s loans. Management doesn’t listen or blow you off because they have other things to do. And new employees that do everything right by company policy they will get rid of you because you don’t product or hit there “scorecard” horrible place to work. It’s a check into cash with deposits.

Starting a lending career at MCU is a gateway to bigger and better things. The amount of paper that you will look at within a loan officer position will allow you to grow quickly within the field of lending.

Beware! this is one of the worse places to work. Senior mgmt. micro manages and changes performance rules. Unrealistic expectations. No formalized business training for any jobs in the branch operations. No promotion from within, all outside hiring for BM roles. But turnover is very high. CEO speaks of record years in income but on the backs of staff. People are forced to do unethical behaviors to keep job. DMs shout instructions and blame BMs when goals not met. No training whatsoever.
Perform or else, no training, no opportunity for growth. Turnover high.
The hours are great and the company values work life balance. Like in most sales roles it is work hard, play hard mentality. Marine values their employees' opinions and the CEO knows the name of almost everyone in the company. There is plenty of opportunity to grow but you have to preform extremely well and most likely will have to relocate.
