Originally established in 1950 as the credit union for the California Teachers Association, Provident Credit Union has expanded to serve more than 100,000 members from over 1,000 employer groups. Over the years, we’ve established ourselves as a recognized leader in the credit union industry. And we’re just getting started. Come work for one of the largest and strongest credit unions in the country.
Provident has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by the Bay Area News Group. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees.
The survey is voluntary and is administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. As part of the survey, employees were asked to measure several aspects of workplace culture including alignment, execution and connection, just to name a few.
"The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it's all about fancy perks and benefits." says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. "But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health."
Our employee morale and culture feeds directly into our commitment to our members. We have a strong belief in doing everything we can to provide quality products with exceptional service and receiving this recognition serves as additional motivation to continue in that tradition.
We are a company that makes all of our decisions based on our members’ best interests. We make life easy for them while providing financial products and services that enhance our members’ lives. People helping people. That’s what we’re all about.
We are empathetic.
We love our members.
We have a sense of fun.
We get things done.
We are self-motivated and always charging ahead.
We foster an organization of mutual respect and teamwork among our employees.
We challenge our employees with opportunities to grow their careers and actively participate in our local communities.

I have been working at Provident Credit Union (Less than a year)
Working at Provident Credit Union has been such an honor. During my time here I have grown both personally and professionally. This is not just a job for me but the beginning to a career. They encourage growth and advancement. In addition, they take care of their employees by offering great benefits, in terms of health insurance, 401k and PTO. They have recognized all my hard work and have been very generous when compensation.
There are no real cons,everything you need to know about the job is said up front.
Advice to Management
Management, Ishan and Claudia are great role models and mentors; also the AVP Walt of the department takes his time to acknowledge everyone for their hard work. If I would have heard of this place earlier, I would have applied straight out of college. I am honored to say I work for such a diverse and trustworthy company.
I applied online. I interviewed at Provident Credit Union (San Jose, CA) in March 2017.
I submitted my application through taleo and was sent an email confirmation by Ramirez and Smith requesting that I give them my availability for a phone interview. Later in the week Baldovino conducted my phone interview.
