Good overall culture. Some opportunities to grow. There does seem to be some long tenured managers who may prefer to surround themselves with those with more tenure so new employees have to overcome not being known.

The Credit Union is a great place to work, I've dedicated four years. They do like to promote from within and everyone is very friendly. It's like being with family every day, they are very focused on member service! It's always great to go to work everyday and spend the amount of time I do with people I truly care about and I enjoy my time with them. They offer great benefits and anyone who works for them would agree with that. They are always doing things for their employees and members that let you know they truly care.

A typical day at work was being on the phone for 5 hours straight with members conducting transactions and filing paperwork. I learned a lot of things as far as working with different computer systems, how to multitask, and how to better my customer service. The hardest part of the job was trying to please upper management and levelling up in the company. The most enjoyable part was being able to connect with all of my co-workers.
Pros
Great Co-Workers
Cons
Horrible upper management

Kern Schools Federal Credit Union was a great place to work; I had a fun and awesome manager. Everyday was different, from going to the different branches and checking for compliance, to helping organize wrokshops, annual business meetings and grand openings of new branches and also changing out the marketing messages on the TV branched and marquees. The best part of the job was community interaction. Kern Schools had a great workplace culture and really cares for their employees.
Pros
Community Interaction

The overall work environment at Kern schools is great. You always feel like you have support from both your peers and your Superiors. You never feel as if you're being talked down to by management, and any question you could ask is always answered promptly and explained until you fully understand.

It was a great place to work at. Everyday always ended up great. I always received free donuts. No matter what, I always learned something new in each department. Management skills was used frequently everyday. No matter what, I had to manage my time properly when on the teller line. My co-workers were awesome. They were always there to help me out with new assignments. The hardest part of the job was handling thousands of money a day without missing up. But after a while, I got the hang of it and became a good teller. The most enjoyable part of the job was creating a trusting relationship with the members.
Pros
Morning Donuts, Good atmosphere, Friendly co-workers
Cons
Short breaks

Everyday i help members with transactions, and try to have the patience to deal with them.
I learned how to be extremely calm and not let the members comments get to me or others.

My management team was awesome very patient and made the work place enjoyable

Co-workers we all got together like a family and even do things occasionally with each other outside of work.

Hardest part of the job was just dealing with the emotions of the members and some of the drama they brought in
The most enjoyable would be helping people and enjoying the environment all the co-workers have with each other.
Pros
good pay, and able to speak with senior management at anytime
Cons
no benefits for part time workers and limited hours/shifts
