    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Western Federal Credit Union (Torrance, CA) in November 2014.


    I was contacted by a staffing agency and upon verification of my skills, a meeting was scheduled with the department manager. Though this was a temporary position, the interview was conducted by the manager with the department's two supervisors present. The managers asked all the questions while the supervisors sat quietly without interjecting any comments. I provided the manager with a link to my online portfolio so she could view samples of my work. A day later, I received a call from the agency, advising me that they would like me to hire me to work temporarily in the department. Following a brief background check I was offered the position. The interview was quick and uneventful. The questions were generic. The interview process was pleasant and I was assured that once I finished helping the department, I would be sent to Business Development to help write ad copy. After 3 months, my assignment ended abruptly. On a Friday night, I returned home and was contacted by the staffing agent who informed me my assignment had ended and that according to the credit union I had done a "fabulous job." Oddly, during the three month stint, the manager and her two supervisors only checked a singled assignment I completed and never reviewed the other 22 leading me to wonder how they knew I did a "fabulous job." The interview was fine if not droll. The assignment proved strange.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you know how to conduct research? Do you ask a lot of questions when writing? Can you work with little supervision?   1 Answer


    I asked for $2.00 more per hour than what I was initially offered. They agreed to $1.00. Credit Unions pay below market so if you hope to earn the market average, credit union's may not be what you want.
