WSECU – Why Work For Us?


undefined

A little about us...

WSECU was founded by a small group of Washington State employees in 1957. Today we are a not-for-profit financial cooperative that welcomes and serves those in Washington State  who share the values of giving, sharing and supporting our communities, including our employees.

We're member owned and directed , with an all-volunteer board and our goal is to make life easier by providing quality  financial products at the lowest cost - presented with a level of service unmatched anywhere.

Our financial family includes over 230,000 members and assets of more than $2.4 billion. Strength, integrity and a unshakable commitment to members have helped us grow for more than 50 years.


 

We’re All In!

Finding your niche — something that interests and challenges you while working with a caring team and having the opportunity to learn, excel and advance — makes you want to come to work every day and be part of something bigger. Are we your niche?

What the experience could be for you.

What would it feel like to work at WSECU? It would feel like becoming part of a community where we're all in. A place where we look out for each other because we’re friends, family and neighbors who are connected by shared values. A place when one of us succeeds, we all do.

Sounds pretty good, don’t you think?

How that experience happens:

  • Through a field of membership that welcomes anyone in Washington State who shares in the values of giving and supporting our communities.
  • Making sure employees have the tools they need and empowering them to go above good member service and make it the best personal service for each member.
  • Giving staff paid time away from the credit union to volunteer in the community.
  • Sponsoring and participating in community events around the state to continuously stay involved at both the employee level and the credit union as a whole.

Are You In?

Doing what you love is important. If you’re drawn to a career of helping others, then WSECU could be the perfect fit. Take a look at our current openings and if you see something you like, we encourage you to apply.

EMPLOYEE BENEFITS

At WSECU, we’re all in when it comes to taking care of our staff. We recognize and value the contributions of each of our employees – not only toward the success of WSECU, but also toward our members’ financial success. We rely on our staff to help us grow and it is our responsibility – and our pleasure – to encourage and ensure a healthy balance of work life and personal life.

We are proud to offer competitive compensation and a benefits package that our employees love. Part-time employees are also eligible for our most valuable benefits.

Your Time – It’s Valuable!

Having a balanced life means spending quality time away from work. That’s why we give our employees time to lead a well-balanced life:

  • 12.5 hours general leave accrual per month in the first year and graduated accrual thereafter
  • 3.5 hours sick leave accrual per month (base level for full-time employees)
  • 10 paid holidays a year
  • Jury duty, military and bereavement leave

Your Personal Health

Good health is an important part of living a quality life, right? The health of our employees means a great deal to us and that’s why we offer:

  • Comprehensive medical and dental plans (two provider choices and multiple coverage options)
  • Long-Term Disability (company-paid benefit for full-time employees)
  • Long-Term Care (company-paid base plan with buy-up options)
  • Wellness program with incentives
  • Paid volunteer time
  • Onsite fitness center at company headquarters
  • Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Your Financial Health

We believe that being financially healthy both now and in the future just makes sense…especially since we’re a financial institution! Being compensated well for all the effort you put into your job is one part of the equation. Part two is planning for your future, including retirement. Both are equally important and we’re all about helping our employees being financially healthy with:

  • Competitive pay
  • Retirement plan: 401(k) pre-tax and Roth after-tax employee contributions with an 8.5% employer contribution
  • Life insurance and Accidental Death and Dismemberment (company-paid with as well as optional voluntary coverage)
  • Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account
  • Health Care Flexible Spending Account
  • Commute Trip Reduction Program for employees at the corporate office that provides financial incentives to those employees who use an alternative mode of transportation as means of getting to work. 

Your Career

We’ve worked hard to cultivate an employee-friendly culture where growth and internal career advancement are encouraged. We support our employees by offering professional development and training opportunities. You’ll discover that our work environment is both professional and comfortable. And yes, that includes a relaxed, business casual dress code. Plus, if you know someone who would love to be all in with the WSECU team, refer them to us for employment and you may receive a $300 bonus!

    Pros

    Leadership team is approachable and engaged.
    Engaged employees with passion for what they do.
    Unparalleled benefits package.
    Leadership has a clear understanding of what needs to be done to stay relevant.

    Cons

    Personnel and culture challenges to change the legacy CU mindset and processes to a technology focused organization. Growing pains will occur to make this move over the next few years but is critical to meet the current Fintech disruptions.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WSECU (Olympia, WA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Very easy going. They made me feel comfortable enough to properly interview, rather than feeling intimidated. I really enjoyed conversing with the 2 interviewers and getting an idea of the environment that I will be in. They asked all the average questions and then some, but they were personable at the same time.
