Smart Financial Credit Union – Why Work For Us?


Smart Financial Credit Union is a cooperative, owned and operated by its members. This is what distinguishes the Credit Union from other financial institutions. Members put their money in a variety of savings accounts, and that money, in turn, is lent to members. After operating expenses and reserve requirements are met, loan income is returned to all members in the form of dividends and comprehensive financial services. 

SFCU is governed by a Board of Directors that establishes and reviews policy. The Directors are Credit Union members who are elected by the Membership and serve without pay. Every member has one vote, regardless of how much he or she has on deposit. At the Credit Union, there is no select group of shareholders that profits more than anyone else. All Members profit - individually and collectively.

    I have been working at Smart Financial Credit Union full-time

    Pros

    Smart Financial has a great company culture! The employees are all hard-working and make an effort to get to know one another. The company also has great benefits and offer tuition reimbursement and work with school schedules. The HR dept rocks!

    Cons

    The company has been expanding, so their are obvious growing pains associated with that. When the market is down, incentives are down but that is just the name of the game.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to show appreciation for your employees! It's the little things like happy hours and pot-lucks that make this place different than other banks.
