    Pros

    Good time off opportunities, decent benefits including dental, optical, and prescription

    Cons

    So busy it is hard to schedule all the time off you get. Many years of staff shortages have created poor morale and difficult working conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a few less VPs and directors. Need more "boots on the ground" employees to grow productively. Current push for growth is likely to fail without a very quick improvement in staff size and experience.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Pentagon Federal Credit Union (Dallas, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Crazy. They were sending emails to the wrong account. Then wanted me to first level interview on a Saturday and complete an application before Monday to be interviewed by Tuesday by the Hiring Manager I completed the application and credit check. I was told that every thing was fine on Monday and would have another interview on Tuesday. The never happened. I finally called on Thursday with no answer only to be sent an email that I do not have the skills for the position. I have 22 years of required skills.
