      I worked at Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union full-time

      Pros

      The best company culture I've ever seen, everyone who worked there truly loved what the did and felt like they were valued by both members and management. Management provided thorough performance reviews and wanted to see you succeed. They had great benefits and compensation. Communication between branches and back office was excellent, easy to get any questions answered correctly and quickly.

      Cons

      The only con is that this company isn't located outside of Minnesota! Would work for them in a heartbeat.

      Advice to Management

      Continue to value your employees, members and community.

        Pros

        Great Benefits. Easy to get hired. Lots of turnover

        Cons

        Low Pay; company brainwashing is true. Credit union has a roll it out and see if it works mentality. The customer facing employees get to clean up the mess. The company looks into your debit and credit card transactions to approve loans. They will continually add more responsibilities with no pay increase.

        Pros

        Great company, great vision, good pay, great benefits. The organization genuinely cares about its members and employees.

        Cons

        Poor training of new employees and nearly no ongoing training, few opportunities to advance

        Advice to Management

        Keep doing what you're doing, but training still needs work, and more opportunities for advancement would be appreciated

        Take serious stock of the value of retention in order to pay for and keep quality employees.

        I have been working at Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Excellent coworkers and supportive environment. Everyone is willing to answer questions at any time, all while friendly. The majority of managers are willing to help. Great benefits package. You have the opportunity to learn a LOT about financial services if you are motivated and make an effort to take on more.

        Cons

        Hourly pay is terrible compared to the industry standard. Advisors that are only responsible for basic transactions get paid the same as advisors that originate, underwrite and close mortgages. Workload is extremely intense, and pressure to multitask can cause a decrease in productivity and quality of work. There is occasionally a lack of consistency across branches, which can complicate member interactions. The membership...

        Advice to Management

        Continue creating consistency across all branches and processes. Increase training for advisors that don't have a financial service background. Increase pay to retain an outstanding employee base.

        I worked at Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        Great benefits...you don't pay anything for medical coverage....State of Minnesota benefits... most of the employees were great to work with....

        Cons

        Management, and people that had been there for years took the credit for everything...nobody listened when they were told that people were waiting too long....on the phones, in line...Revolving door....they can't keep their staff, everyone leaves within a year.

        I worked at Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Great Benefits!! Sometimes their hearts are in the right place. They want to help the members for all the right reasons.

        Cons

        There is zero training. When I first started they had me Doing a home equity loan after one week. There are many errors made because the new Advisors have no training and follow through is non existent. I was told to go to "knowledge base" to find directions, but even knowledge base has missing components! I saw eleven people leave or get fired within one year... In a very small branch!

        Advice to Management

        Please invest in your employees, that will prove to have better quality results for the Member.. Remember these are people's lives . There is a huge lack management support.
