Member Consultant (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 23 July 2015
The typical day centred around meeting with and discussing financial planning and transactions with members. Large amount of information had to be retained about the credit union and its culture as well as training for financial planning for members. Management and co-workers were friendly and genuinely concerned with the success of the team. The best part of the job was working with members and assisting them to achieve their financial goals.
Excellent benefits and pay nice atmosphere and culture to work in
Limited time with each member due to credit union popularity
If you plan on having a separate life from work don't waste your time applying here and there is not much room for growth. I applied for the member consultant position which I was hired part-time for except they wanted me to be available full time and free even on the days I wasn't scheduled. During my interview process none of the 3 people that interviewed me had mentioned that, even though it was made clear that I had other commitments. Expect to work every Saturday if your'e part time. I tried booking a Saturday off 2 months in advance for a wedding and they had an issue with that. You'll do a lot of tedious unnecessary work, and the environment created makes you feel like you're constantly walking on egg shells, everyones fake nice to one another . Overall I was left with a bitter taste in my mouth.
