    I worked at Lake Michigan Credit Union part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Awesome corporate culture, and great pay for a college student. 75% of the branch employees are fun to work with and make going into work easier. I've worked at many different branches in the GR area, and every branch manager and assistant manager I've worked with have been awesome. They are all very helpful, encouraging and create a comfortable environment in each branch. I graduated college and left LMCU... because wages are too low and it is nearly impossible to move into corporate starting as a teller unless it's VP of Sales; all other functions of business they hire externally for, even though they tell you they only hire internally upon interviewing.

    Cons

    Pay is not enough for someone with a college degree (which they prefer)... especially for branch management positions. Everyone works very hard every day, and it's a very stressful job, and to only be making $11-$16 / hr, that is not enough. LMCU's employee turnover has been abnormally high in the recent months, and I believe it is due to them hiring externally for corporate positions and branch management positions... and low wages. Now onto the CEO... I was working at a branch right out of my branch training and Sandy Jelinski, the CEO, walked into the branch I was working at. I had never seen or met her prior to this, so obviously I did not recognize her. She walked up to my station and stood there like she was a celebrity and I should know who she is. I asked her for her name so could pull up her account since she was not handing me an ID, and she said her name was Sandy. No last name, just Sandy. Then I asked her what her last name was and she said Jelinski and I had to ask her how to spell that. Then my Lync messaging system blew up with messages from my coworkers letting me know that was the CEO. After I had finished Sandy's transaction I thought everything went great and didn't think it was any issue that I didn't know who she was. The following day I go to work and my branch manager called me into her office to discuss this interaction with Sandy. Sandy had reported to my manager's boss about how I didn't know who she was and she wanted me to get in trouble. My manager defended me because I was so new. The teller training class was 3 weeks long and they had mentioned Sandy's name once. There are one million things to remember, and I was not concerned about the CEO. I was at the lowest position within the credit union and never expected to meet her. I would expect someone with an ego that big to work at Fortune 500 company, but never a non-profit credit union in West Michigan. Lake Michigan Credit Union is an awesome credit union and place to work, but the CEO does not reflect this.
