What Our Employees Have to Say


 

I am building my career here

"It started when I was looking for a part-time job. I found an opening at Mountain America for a Member Service Representative (MSR—I didn’t even know what that was), and I was surprised when I received a call for an interview. During the interview, I learned about their values and how well they treated their employees and I was DETERMINED to work there.

"A few months later, I was able to move to full-time, and then I was promoted to a lead position. After two and a half years, we had some health issues in my family, and I had to quit my job. When I was finally ready to go back to work, I took an office administrator position at another company. It only took me one week of working there to know that I wanted to go back to Mountain America.

"I had always kept in touch with my manager, and when he called and said he was looking for an MSR, I was so happy to go back.

"I’m now a Financial Services Representative (I can do loans and open accounts) and a Tech Champ (I teach our members about technology) and am close to my 5-year anniversary! Working here is different than anywhere else. I stay at Mountain America because they value their employees. They understand that even the little guys are so important to what makes Mountain America great. The employee celebrations are incredible and so extravagant! The training is remarkable; they set you up for success here. The people you work with become life-long friends. Mountain America recognizes your success and loves to watch you succeed. Everyone here is such a motivator!"

I am a member, and an employee

"I worked at another financial institution for six years. I never really loved the environment or atmosphere, but it paid the bills. My wife wanted to pursue a business opportunity that would change our lives, but we needed a Small Business Administration (SBA) loan. Since I worked in commercial loans, I thought it would be a smooth process to get an SBA loan. It was not!

"We tried to get in touch with a loan officer for 60 days, and he rarely returned calls. We read online that Mountain America Credit Union was the largest SBA credit union lender. We applied and had a much better experience, and by starting my wife’s business it changed our world forever.

"I was so impressed with Mountain America that I started to look for jobs there. You can say I am a 'rescued' employee.

"From the minute I started, I loved working here. My leaders proved to me that our members really do come first. Every day I had multiple situations where I was empowered to do what was in the best interest of the member, not what was in the best interest of the bottom line.

"Even though I was promoted, I left the credit union after a few years to pursue an opportunity in commercial real estate lending (a passion of mine). But after six months, I missed my old job. I missed the ability to help people. I also missed the amazing health benefits. I reapplied and was immediately welcomed back. On the very first day, I felt that amazing feeling of helping members achieve their financial dreams.

"The people, the culture, the benefits and the members are what keep me at Mountain America. I also know there are several opportunities within the company that I am sure I can be happy with. I’m still keeping my eyes peeled on jobs in the commercial real estate department and hope to end up working there someday or maybe become a branch manager one day. Whatever the job, I know I want to continue my career at Mountain America."

Working here seems to be my destiny

"It seems working at Mountain America is my destiny. I started here in the ATM/Cards department. I was in the department for five months and then had an opportunity to advance in my career and went to work for a different credit union. After about a year, I received notice that we would be merging with Mountain America, so I ended up back here working in the Fraud Risk Management Department. After about seven years in this department, I received another offer to manage a Visa department at a smaller credit union. I left here, worked there for two and a half days (no exaggeration) and then sent a message to my previous boss about the mistake I had made in leaving.

"Fortunately for me, Mountain America took me right back. It was a lesson learned to say the least. After just two days, I realized that Mountain America had superior tools, technology, benefits and people. The culture we have and the way we care about our members is something that cannot be duplicated. It just feels like family here."

—Jennifer
 

I work with amazing people

"I was working for a different financial institution but it seemed like wherever I went, people were talking about Mountain America. Every time we drove by a branch, I would say things like, 'I’ve heard they’re the best credit union in Utah.' Though my husband would often tease me, he also kept encouraging me to check the macu.com careers page for job opportunities. Thankfully, I listened to him and checked the careers page and there was a job opening for an HR Generalist. I knew right then and there, I had to apply for it. Five interviews later I got the job! I seriously cried I was so happy and excited to come onboard with Mountain America. I’ve been here for five years, and I stay because I work with amazing people, both in my department and outside. I really feel like I am part of a team. People have confidence in me to do my job successfully. I have amazing flexibility and work life balance, while still having the opportunity to grow my career and develop."

The best job I’ve ever had

"My first day of the best job I’ve ever had started on February 28, 2014. I was hired at Mountain America as a Member Service Representative (MSR, teller), and I worked very hard. Because I had a lot of coaching and inspiration from my leaders and team, I quickly accelerated to become one of the highest performing MSRs in our branch.

"I really wanted to build my career and progress to a Financial Service Representative (FSR, loan officer) position. Again, my leaders were supportive and encouraged me to sign up for training and university courses, as well as job shadow other FSRs. When an FSR job opened up in our branch, I applied that day. However, after a few weeks and intensive interviews, I learned that I was not selected. I was heartbroken. A few days later I was approached by a head hunter. They offered me the opportunity to be an office assistant. The pay was better, the work week was only Monday through Thursday, and it offered fully paid Medical, Dental, Vision, large Pension Contributions and a sizeable Life Insurance policy. So in October, I left for this new job.

"I was able to excel with my new employer. However, with the increased responsibility came a crazy work schedule. I was always working, and I didn’t enjoy the people I worked with.

"Despite the money and the perks, I wanted to return to the branch and waited impatiently for a position to open up near me. Once a position became available, I jumped at the opportunity and interviewed. I was rehired (this time as a Member Experience Officer—I could do a wide variety of transactions) and have not looked back!

"My favorite thing about Mountain America is the atmosphere and culture. We are compensated well and have plenty of opportunity for growth. I also love that management is supportive of my goals and do what they can to help me achieve them. They are also very helpful in balancing my work/home life. I have promised myself, as well as my manager, that I will never leave again.

"Some of my friends said I was crazy to leave a job with more money and zero benefits costs for a job that I loved. But I say there is no amount of money that is worth my sanity. Happiness goes further than money, and trust me, if you are miserable 40 hours a week, no amount of money is going to help make you happy."

—Yolanda

We provide quality service

"Because we are trained on how to provide extraordinary service, we have amazing member loyalty. I have members who I have served for years and truly consider to be my friends. I’ve cried with members who are struggling and celebrated when we’ve turned people’s lives around. I change lives here. It’s so rewarding."

We are continuously looking for ways to improve

"I love that I work for a company that is always trying to improve. We’ve seen amazing growth, even during the recession, because we innovate and serve people better than other institutions; we attract new members all the time because they recognize we are different."
