I've been in the workplace for almost 30 years and this is by far the best place I've ever worked. Great culture and family oriented organization starting from the CEO down. Great benefits and plenty of opportunities for advancement and professional growth. Most management encouraged and respected their team. High standard for anybody to compare to.
TELLER (Current Employee) – West Jordan, UT – 21 June 2017
I enjoyed my time at the UFCU, I worked with very motivated individuals which helped me want to move along with them. The most enjoyable part about the job is being able to help the members. This company is very ethical and makes it easy to work with. They truly care about the employees.
Lots of extra activites
Not having all the resourses you need to work on Satudays.
Loan Underwriter (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – 9 May 2017
Great benefits but, management is lacking. More training could be used to promote a positive work environment. There needs to be a stronger focus on internal members as well as external members. People can be brilliant and at the same time not be able to promote a positive team.
Great retirement plan
People are put in position of power that have no people skills
Member Service Representative (Former Employee) – Grand Forks, ND – 25 October 2016
Overall a great place to work with great benefits. You will learn to love and care for all of the members. Co-works create a very easy going and fun work environment if you work the Branch location. Weekends off for the family. An easy 8:45 to 5:15 day.
At times it does get stressful, you will have to multitask. Co-workers are great to help and answer any questions. You get to see members pets in drive thru.
Working in our main office location in a basement with no windows feels like a dungeon.
Our CEO at times could be very unapproachable, and cold hearted to a persons feelings. She doesn't treat employees like they matter to the credit union. (The reason for multiply employees leaving)
Fun members, co-workers, casual work attire
Basement location, heartless CEO, not all members are treated equally
Teller/ Member Service Representative (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – 10 October 2016
I loved the routine of the Credit Union in General, but I learned a lot about personal finances and would gladly encourage anyone to work for University Federal Credit Union. Management was great, always motivating and helpful with a good laugh each day. The hardest part of the job would probably be simply learning the job, but once learned it becomes a happy and easy process and enjoyable. I most enjoyed the education of all sorts each day and steady consistent work load. Challenging but never too stressful.
Loan Officer / Funder (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – 29 June 2016
Worked as Teller, Loan Processor and Loan Officer. You'd think I'd make a comfortable wage to earn a living with that much growth. However even as a loan officer I barely made $13/hr. Company should probably invest more in to people deciding who to invest money in or not.
Teller (Current Employee) – Cottonwood Heights, UT – 10 May 2016
Working for University Credit Union has given me a great opportunity to grow my skills and expand my work experience. The best part of working here is the management as my co-workers. It is very fun and motivational to work with such a great group of people. The skills and knowledge that I have obtained working here is incredible to me. I feel like I have learned a lot more about working in the real world and how to do better in my every day life as well as in the work place. I have learned a lot about finances and how to better manage my money. I have learned so much about business ethics and business operations. The only really difficult part of my job is having to work with less than pleasant members who expect the world when they have a negative balance in their account or who are just flat out rude and don't respect the tellers.
Great work Environment. Great Co-workers, Great Management, Great members.
Branch Manager (Current Employee) – Sandy, UT – 7 December 2015
It is a concern that a financial institution such as this is still in business in this day and age. Consumer protection regulations are scoffed at, policies are loose and there is no accountability from management and administration to ensure proper training is provided, the consumer is protected and laws are adhered to. Profitability is an integral part of any company but not at the expense of its customers and asking its employees to break the law. They foster an environment that refuses to take action on reports of discrimination, workplace violence and harassment. I fear for the entry level employees and the members.
Free lunches and gift cards.
Administration, ethics, professional sandards, pay, training, systems.
Customer Assistance Representative (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – 7 February 2014
The typical day as a teller consists or completing a large number of financial transactions for customers. The branch manager that i worked under was an amazing boss and a person that i have stayed in contact with years after i moved on from that job. The co-workers were great and we all had a lot of fun and enjoyed working together. The hardest and also the best part of the job are the customers. Working in customer service can be challenging and rewarding.
Human Resource Assistant (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – 25 September 2012
Typical day consisted of assisting managers with evaluations, payroll, and any other HR needs. Collected applications and logged them, performed phone and in person interviews. Conducted new hire orientation. Assisted with Benefits and Workers Comp. Management was amazing to work for, very flexible and understandng. Hardest part of the job was the pay. Most enjoyable part was the people and work atmosphere.
