We continue to look for expansion opportunities in order to meet the needs of our members. While growth is vital to our success, we remain focused on our mission, Helping Members Achieve Financial Success, by providing exceptional service and diverse products to our membership.
Idaho Central Credit Union was organized as a state-chartered credit union on June 28, 1940, in Boise, Idaho, to serve the financial needs of the officers of other credit unions operating in the State of Idaho. At that time, officers could not belong to the credit union where they worked. On January 31, 1941, the Credit Union reported $298.93 in assets at year end and had 22 members.
Over the years, Idaho Central Credit Union has expanded to have 29 full-service locations throughout Idaho. In 1944 the Credit Union moved its only office from Boise to Caldwell, and then in 1948 moved from Caldwell to Pocatello.
Idaho Central reached $100 million in assets in 1997, and $500 million nine years later in 2006. By 2012, the Credit Union was over $1 billion in asset size, and in 2017 broke the $3 billion mark. Idaho Central serves the needs of over 255,000 employees, students, retirees, and family members of eligible members of a large variety of business entities within most Idaho counties.

Advice to Management
Keep being awesome!
I applied online. I interviewed at Idaho Central Credit Union (Coeur d'Alene, ID) in May 2017.
I sat on the couches while I waited until they were ready for the interview. They didn't really tell me what they were waiting on, so I took the time to watch them run to and fro; while re-reading their about page. The interview was with two assistant managers and a branch manager. I then re-interviewed with a second branch manager and assistant manager on a different day. I did a drug screen and background check. The interviews were standard behavioral interview questions used by most banks/CUs; however, they didn't write down as much as I was used to. Also, the application process requires a personality test. This is MANDATORY as it's used to gauge your hire-ability and culture fit. They really like team building, comradery, participation in after-work events (unpaid). They're looking for people they'd like to be friends with in and out of work. It's more about the team than it is about sales. Completly backwards from the big banks who are all about sales numbers.
