At first i loved working at Vystar, it was something new and it was my first paying job. I learned a lot about financial literacy, accounting and business management, which i am grateful for the experience. Most of my co-workers were really nice and welcoming at first but after a while they treated a lot of the interns like we weren't as important as them. The environment became unpleasant and depressing to work in. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new skills.

My day consist of opening new accounts, processing loans and educating our members on budgets and credit reports. There were weekly meetings to share opportunities on members credit reports with a supervisor. There were also weekly meetings with the tellers and member service rep to assist the tellers to listen for que's as to refer the member to a member service department.
great place to work
not much room for advancing out of the branch to a back office position
Universal Member Relationship Specialist II (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – December 18, 2018
Very political.Toxic Atmosphere. They don’t let you use your earned PTO unless you get write off and at the end the company keeps your PTO . Unpredictable schedule.The branch I was working in, everyone left . Many of then decided to leave without a job rather than continue working there Lack of management. Manipulation of daily tasks affecting work flow and members. If you are planning to work here,ask many questions and ask them to give it all to you in paper.
Very politcal. It's all about who you know and if you are liked by management whether you get a promotion or not. I had to take online classes because they wouldn't work with my school schedule (they told me during the interview that they are flexible).

Stability and opportunity are key to the reasons I love it here. They have rolled out additional benefits to make it clear that our personal health and involvement in our community is of primary importance.
enjoyable environment that focused on the needs of its members.
HIGH SCHOOL BRANCH COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – October 11, 2018
Thought provoking. Learned allot of financial literacy. Management was extremely supportive. Culture was family type atmosphere. Hardest part about the job was creating new things for students to keep them engaged. Most enjoyable thing was when I was successful and causing the light to come on for them and making them into leaders.
Management always sided with the members and ended up giving them anything they wanted if they fought up the chain. Direct management was not on your side when you have a valid option or concern. Benefits were reasonable. 401(k) match. PTO accrued per pay period. Incentive bonus as % of you salary if all company factors are met.
