I have been working at Alliant Credit Union full-time
Alliant has a great benefit package with the normal medical, vision and dental benefits but we also enjoy a lot more. For Thanksgiving this year each employee was provided a pie from Baker Square. We have an employee recognition system where we can award points that are good for all sorts of items in the recognition store. This includes gift cards. Can you say holiday shopping made easy?
We also have a great new benefit called Health Advocate that makes navigation of the medical and insurance world a whole lot easier.
Having two main offices inherently has its challenges.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Alliant Credit Union (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.
I was contacted by the recruiting team. I had 2 phone interviews, and final interviews in person. I flew back to Chicago for final round interviews which really gave me a solid understanding of the organization, culture, leadership, etc.
