Mission: Our purpose is to secure the future of rural communities and agriculture.
At Farm Credit Mid-America, we recruit people who have a wide range of experience and capabilities. We currently have more than 1,100 employees in our main office and in field offices throughout the four-state area of Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee. We're always looking for great new people to join our team.
Employees are eligible for health, vision and dental benefits, fitness reimbursement, and vacation, sick time and paid holidays.
In addition to a friendly and inclusive work environment, we offer an employee assistance program, first time home buyers plan and vehicle purchase discount.
Financial Services Training Program
Trainees are enrolled in Farm Credit Mid-America’s fast-paced, year-round training program to become a Financial Services Officer (FSO) — a competitive, goal-oriented sales role. Responsibilities include servicing potential and existing customers through the offer of competitive loan offerings, building relationships with these customers and meeting their needs. Successful FSOs maintain a positive presence in the rural areas they serve by becoming involved in community organizations and events.
Training generally lasts 12 to 18 months. During this time, trainees are assigned a field office location with a partner/mentor who will help guide their development. Trainees also complete course work and attend classroom training every four to six weeks at our office in Louisville, Kentucky.
Farm Credit recruiters often visit colleges throughout Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee. Find out when we will be on your campus by following us on Facebook and Twitter. Our recruiters also often sponsor campus events tied to agriculture.
Each year Farm Credit awards more than $100,000 in scholarships. In fact, Farm Credit has provided scholarships to our community's students studying agriculture, finance or an agriculture-related field, for more than a quarter of a century.
I have been working at Farm Credit Mid-America full-time (Less than a year)
Huge emphasis on maintaining a great work-life balance.
Not micromanaged whatsoever, leaving plenty of room to do your own work and incorporate your individual preferences or ideas.
Great pay, bonus structure and 401k program.
Ample training and continuing education opportunities.
Many supplemental benefits (i.e. college assistance)
Extremely honest and transparent experience working in the Credit department.
A lot of change which can be challenging
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Farm Credit Mid-America.
Phone interview and then personal interview which consisted of preformed questions and scenarios asked by a panel of 4. Reason given for no offer didn't make any sense. If they are looking for people with certain skills then they shouldn't waste candidates time when they don't have those skills.
