Our rich history makes us who we are
Patelco was founded in 1936 to serve the financial interests of employees at the Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company (now part of AT&T). With assets now totaling more than $3.9 billion and 270,000 members nationwide, we are among the largest credit unions in the nation today.
As a, not–for–profit, full–service financial institution, what we earn, we return to our members in savings from lower loan rates, fewer fees, and personalized service that focus on transparency, simplicity, and trust. We're dedicated to helping our members and our communities throughout California and the United States prosper through financial success and giving back through volunteer initiatives.

Mission driven, sincere, new leadership is great.
Pay scale less than for-profit banks (but benefits are great). Some relics from previous, old style, political management need cleaned out.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing! As a contract recruiter I met with 20+ hiring managers and was impressed with 95% of them (Operations excepted - that dept needs new leadership).

I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Patelco Credit Union.
I was contacted by a recruiter that came across my resume. Followed by a in person interview with district manager. After the district manager interview is cleared then you move on the final interview with regional and hr manager. They do take a while to respond back through the interview process. I never heard back from them after my final interview.
