Financial Services Officer, Concord, ON - 16 February 2018
I was hired at PACE in 2017.
Being only my second job in the Financial Industry, I had many pre-conceived notions and thoughts about how each job is; the majority of these notions and thoughts were of the negative variety, however I was 100% sure to throw them out of my head, before coming to PACE. I'm super glad I did, because PACE was a complete 180 from my previous job.
Pay and benefits are second to none and I came from a wonderful compensation+benefits package at my previous job (the only consistently good aspect of that job). Every employee must take part in 2 community events a year as well and they are a great way to give back to the community and it instills a great feeling of pride in you, knowing that you are a part of a great event/fundraiser/etc.
Between the wonderful staff at the 5 branches (plus Head Office) that I've visited, the infectious culture and most of all, the *fair* and ***HONEST*** policies and behaviour exhibited throughout the Credit Union, this is far and away the best job I have ever worked at; no phoniness or politics, proper coaching, up-to-date policies so that everyone is on the same page, a banking system that works, what else could a young financial employee ask for?
Job advancement is a 4, only because there are many long-time staff that are excellent at their jobs and they won't be displaced anytime soon! Though, I have seen quite a few people advance within the Credit Union and it happens more frequently than one would think.
Thank you to PACE, for showing me the true, Credit Union Difference.
