Desert Financial Credit Union – Why Work For Us?


Experience the Credit Union Difference

As a member of a credit union, you're an owner, not a customer. That's a significant difference.

Credit unions are not-for-profit cooperatives. Unlike other financial institutions that focus on profit and stakeholders, credit unions are comprised of members who share their resources, including profits, to help each other. Because they have ownership rights, members also get to vote on the Board of Directors – ensuring member needs are always put first.

The Difference Between Credit Unions and Banks

At Desert Financial, we’re committed to helping our members achieve their financial goals by providing innovative tools, resources, products, and services that uniquely address the needs of our community.

As our members do more business with us, we’re able to offer even more attractive rates, higher dividends, cash back rewards, free services, and membership perks, while giving generously to help strengthen local communities.

Building Strong Communities

When our neighbors are financially strong, we all succeed. When you become a member of Desert Financial, you not only get the help you need to achieve your financial goals and dreams, but your deposits make it possible for your neighbors to buy their dream home or new car as well.

Thanks to our members, we’ve been able to give back millions of dollars and thousands of hours of time to help other not-for-profits in the community, like the Phoenix Children’s hospital and the United Way. You can feel good knowing that your membership helps your neighbors in need because every dollar stays locally.

It’s just part of who we are.

Financial Stability

We have a proven history of forming relationships with members to build and maintain a strong financial institution for our current membership and future generations. Since we are member-owned, our purpose is simple – to protect and grow the assets of our members.

If you're ready to experience a financial institution that’s all about you and your community, we invite you to join the over 300,000 members who have chosen to become a part of something better.

 

YOUR JOURNEY STARTS HERE

When you walk in the door at Desert Financial, you are welcomed into a culture of positivity—a culture that continually creates real solutions for real situations.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Desert Financial Credit Union (Phoenix, AZ) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Nothing much really happened. Walked in, submit resume, waited and then interviewed. Then waited for them to call. That's it. Nothing much really happened. Walked in, submit resume, waited and then interviewed. Then waited for them to call. That's it.
