We provide financial services that can help people achieve their financial dreams. Several years ago we started tracking the amount we were able to save each member by refinancing loans or restructuring debt—its more than $400,000 a year.
How to Get Hired
We asked Mountain America Credit Union for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
The guiding principle of credit unions has been a philosophy of People Helping People. We are always looking for individuals who have a desire to serve in the community and improve people’s lives. The state of a person’s finances can have a dramatic impact on their life, for good or bad. We have the opportunity to make a positive difference and truly can change the lives of our members for the better. Employees who are passionate about service, dedicated to helping and actively engaged in learning and growing will always be welcome at Mountain America Credit Union.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Financial services are a commodity - you can get them anywhere. There are hundreds of financial institutions who are looking for qualified individuals. We want to know your story; what drew you to investigate a career at Mountain America. We have more than 16,000 people apply for positions each year. Our most successful candidates have a story about what drew them to the credit union. Did you grow up as a member of a credit union? Have you been helped by a credit union? What appeals to you about the credit union philosophy of People Helping People? People who truly understand the mission of a credit union, who understand that our essential purpose and function is to educate and to assist, are ultimately the most engaged and happy employees.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Our focus is always on hiring individuals who bring the talent necessary to meet our future financial goals and objectives. We are always looking for employees to serve in the branch. Our branch network is the 5th largest in the nation among credit unions, and we are always growing and expanding and many of the employees who come to the credit union in part-time positions realize that there is a wealth of career opportunities for them, and they stay.
