Avadian Credit Union – Why Work For Us?

Since Avadian's inception in 1934, we have upheld the credit union philosophy of "people helping people." This reflects in every action, service, attitude and direction we take as a company. It is our commitment to meet the needs of our members, and we couldn't do this without our dedicated employees. It is because of our great team that we are successful.

It is a fact that most people spend the majority of their life at work. So, it only stands to reason that you hopefully like, if not love, your job and what you do! At Avadian Credit Union, we have employees who have been with us for over 25 years!

We are always looking for fun, energetic and exciting people who are looking for a fulfilling career in the financial services industry. If you are interested in joining our team and want more information about the different positions available within our organization, click on the jobs tab in our profile. 

As if working with a fun team of highly talented professionals wasn't enough, we also offer a comprehensive benefits program. We don't want to brag or anything, but it's pretty top notch. Here are some of the benefits you get when you join our team!*

  • Healthcare - Comprehensive insurance coverage for Health, Dental, Vision, and options with Aflac
  • Peace of Mind - Coverage for you and your family with Short-Term and Long-Term Disability, Accidental Death Insurance and Life Insurance 
    • Short-Term Disability Benefits: Did you know that 20% of companies do not offer this to their employees? Avadian does and it's a company paid benefit. As an employee of Avadian, if you are injured or sick and cannot work for a specified period of time, you are covered for 60% of your weekly gross income up to $2,000. 
      • We continue to provide health care the entire time you are on leave.
      • We continue your life insurance benefit while you are on leave.
      • We continue your vacation accrual while you are on leave.
    • Long-Term Disability Benefits: 35% of companies do not offer long-term disability benefits to their employees. Avadian does and it's a company paid benefit. What does that mean for you if you work for us? We will pay 66.67% of your monthly salary up to $10,000 while you are on leave.
  • Family and Medical Leave - Because sometimes you need to care for you and your family.
  • 401k Plan - Employees can contribute up to 100% of pre-tax or post tax dollars into their choice of investments (subject to IRS limitation). Avadian matches dollar for dollar up to the first 5% contributed because we believe in your future. Only 38% of companies match at our level. 
  • Paid Time Off - Vacation, Sick and Personal Time, since we all need to hit "refresh" sometimes.
  • Holidays - 10 Company Paid Holidays, Additional 1/2 days for Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve (if they fall on a weekday)

*There are certain waiting periods and other eligibility requirements that must be satisfied for plan participation. These benefits are subject to change at the discretion of the Credit Union and nothing stated here should be construed as a guarantee/contract. Benefits may vary by full/part-time status.

Always thinking outside the box, we like to offer our employees more than the usual benefits you come to expect from most companies.

  • Biannual Bonuses* - Based on the Credit Union's overall goals and individual's performance review.
  • Tuition Reimbursement - Grow in your field and never stop learning. 
  • Student Loan Repayment Program - To help reduce financial stress and help to improve financial wellness
  • Flexible Work Arrangements - Flex hours for a better work/life balance.
  • Product Benefits and Discounts - We will waive standard fees on select products and services, provide free checking/checks and discounts on safe deposit boxes. 
  • Wellness Program - We offer an interactive Health and Wellness program that allows employees to track physical activity while earning points for incentives, like an extra day off.

*Bonuses are subject to change and are not guaranteed.

    I have been working at Avadian Credit Union full-time (More than a year)


    401K Match up to 5%, Affordable Dental and Health Insurance


    Scorecards and Salaries. Salaries should be reconsidered. With the credit union doing so well salaries need to be reviewed for across the board increases for all employees. Annual salary increases are good but when you give 2-5% increase to someone making 15.00 an hour is almost insulting.
