      Pros

      Really good pay (at least that is if you can do really good at sales), Good benefits

      Cons

      Kind of pushy on the sales aspect, expect management to be on you about calls, expect a lot of time on the phones making calls if you go to a slower branch

      Pros

      Good benefits and hours worked with family. Met some great friends while working there.

      Cons

      This is a credit union and I think Senior Management forgets that. They tried to compete with banks all the time. Change is good for the better not because some other bank is doing it. That would be the wrong reason to change everything. Promote within you have great hard working employees that would not be so unhappy if you trained and promoted employees. So much money/time is wasted with redundancy. Hire your managers on character and abilities not on familiarity and loudness in your face people who can put up a show.

      From Full time to Part time

      Pros

      Great company with many advancement opportunities. Has good benefits, and a major bonus is tuition reimbursement. Member facing positions have a monthy incentive they can earn according to sales performance. Management can be flexible with time off and there are chances to win PTO through contests and other activities.

      Cons

      Desert Schools is Arizona's largest credit union, and sometimes I feel they mix their identity sometimes with the large banks like chase or well's fargo. The sales expectations are reasonable if you are at a busier branch and not hard to meet if you are persistant. But at some of the slowest branches I do not know how they make their goals. Goals are credit union wide. Benefits are expensive for a part-timer. It is required to stay in the same position for 1 year before switching locations or advancing in the company. They do have exceptions for special circumstances.

      Pros

      The pay is somewhat low for the industry but benefits are good, vacation time is decent after a few years, there is opportunity in the credit union.

      Cons

      Financial services is very different from the credit union. Unrealistic expectations, expectations changed and were inconsistent, overwhelming workload, supervisor has no leadership ability, has no experience practicing in the field and very limited knowledge and understanding but is friends with the CEO, office gossip and backstabbing is unreal, not following required legal rules and regulations, focused on making money and production speed instead of taking time and doing the right thing for the members
