BECU encourages volunteerism and supports the projects our employees care about most through our Gift Match Program.
Every year, BECU employees volunteer hundreds of hours and are involved in fundraising for Washington non-profit organizations including:
We match BECU employee contributions* dollar for dollar, made to the eligible organizations and institutions of our employees’ choice. The minimum matched gift amount is $25 and matching includes gifts up to $5000 per employee per year
The BECU Volunteer Recognition program honors the efforts of committed employee volunteers through a cash gift to the organization where they volunteer. BECU employees who volunteer at least 30 hours within one year earn $100 for a non-profit organization they volunteered for.
I have been working at BECU (More than 3 years)
How can you not want to work for an organization that saved its members $169,000,000 last year? BECU is growing and there are lots of opportunities at all levels of the organization. BECU offers great benefits, and the opportunity to give back to your community through volunteering and get paid for it.
The growth means things are moving quickly--lots of challenges to take on. If you're looking for a stodgy environment that doesn't change, this isn't it!
I applied online. I interviewed at BECU.
Started with an online video recorded interview followed by a phone interview. Later they called me in for an in person interview. Questions were direct, mainly about past work history and situations. Two days later got a call with an offer.
