Service quality is of high importance and you are expected to put the Members' needs first above all else. The workplace culture follows a mantra of "we've got your back".

Financial Service Rep (Former Employee) –  Port Colborne, ON12 March 2018
Great employer. If i had not been going through a divorce, I would still be employed there. They do not offer tellers full time hours which is a downfall.

Management loves creative and friendly people
Member Services Representative (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON27 December 2017
Working in Meridian was perfect for me as it allowed me to meet new people every day and build lasting relationships with our members. As Meridian Credit Union is not like a typical bank, it is more built toward wealth management and we usually deal more with members nearing retirement or looking to solidify their savings accounts rather than just have an outlet for daily transactions. This allowed me to create close connections with them, as they would come in regularly and would always remember my face.
Pros
Great work staff, meet new people every day, never run out of things to do
Cons
Can be stressful
