There are no two ways around it – dividing your attention between the demands of a college education and a full- or part-time job is not always ideal. However, that does not mean it can’t be done; especially when you’re in a work environment that values the education and well-being of its team members.
 
Working for Arbor Financial Credit Union has more perks than one may think. Not only are you naturally educated about finances on the job, but employees also receive their birthday off with pay, can enjoy loan and retail product discounts, paid holidays off, and even paid volunteer time.

If you're still searching for that perfect internship, consider a position at Arbor Financial to get paid experience. Below are six reasons why our Teller position is a good fit for college students:

1. Scheduling that works around student commitments.
From class schedules, to extracurriculars, sports, and so much more, we understand that college students have a lot going on. That’s why we work around class schedules and availability when building our work schedules.
 

2. Tuition reimbursement opportunities.
For students looking to pursue a career in the financial services industry, a Teller position is an excellent way to develop connections and get your foot in the door for a long-term career opportunity. Plus, full-time staff members who have been employed for at least 6 months can take advantage of tuition reimbursement opportunities to further their education.
 

3. Community involvement and connections.
At Arbor, there are many ways to get involved and connected with your community! From the staff-led Caring Committee to attending events and expos, employees stay engaged with local businesses, schools, and more.
 
Kate Flowers, Community and Social Media Specialist, says that "Arbor Financial has given me an opportunity to connect with my community, deeper than I could have imagined. We have the chance to connect with local organizations, community leaders, and other credit union affiliates statewide. Arbor is a great place to meet a robust connection of friends, colleagues, and hardworking people; not only within the organization, but also outside of it."
 

4. Fun teamwork.
We love to work together, do the right thing, and have fun! Our Talent Strategy team works diligently to hire people who are positive and personable, and it shows in our culture. You can expect your workday to be made enjoyable through friendly interactions, random acts of kindness, and close-knit teams.
 
While our employees do initiate fun on their own, Arbor also sponsors activities to incorporate fun into the workplace, including quarterly “Have Fun” events (sporting events, food truck rally, etc.), Halloween costume contests, holiday gatherings, inter-departmental competitions, and more!
 

5. 401K matching – start young and take it with you.
Arbor Financial offers a generous 401(K) matching program. While retirement may seem (and probably is) years away for you, planning now will have you thanking yourself in the long run when you’re hammocking in the Bahamas someday.


6. Growth opportunities.
Truly invested in the development of our employees, Arbor is a growing organization with frequent opportunities for advancement. Simply put, we love to promote from within. If you’re looking for a long-term career, we will invest in your personal and professional growth to help you achieve your goals.
 
Employees can get more growth through initiatives such as:

  • A three-day New Employee Orientation to acclimate to our culture.

  • Our annual Staff Enrichment Day, designed to inspire and empower employees to be their best.

  • Arbor University, a virtual learning platform with relevant training and career development tracks for Branch Managers, Loan Officers, and more.

  • Skill-building opportunities, such as peer coaching, special project committees, plus more.
