Job Description

Ready for a new career? Let us help you develop the skills you need for a successful career in the credit union industry.

What is a credit union? Credit unions are not-for-profit organizations that exist to serve their members. Like banks, credit unions accept deposits, make loans and provide a wide array of other financial services. But as member-owned and cooperative institutions, any profits made by credit unions are returned back to members in the form of reduced fees, higher savings rates and lower loan rates.

At GCS Credit Union, we live by the credit union philosophy of "people helping people" and believe that you, as an employee of GCS, have the power to change lives. We will give you the knowledge and skills you need to help our members make wise financial decisions. All you need is a willingness to learn and a desire to help others.

Our Tellers make $15.00/hour and as a full time employee of the credit union, you are eligible for medical insurance; 100% credit union paid dental and vision insurance; long term and short term disability insurance at no cost to you; free life insurance and accidental death and dismemberment insurance; and a generous match on the 401(k) plan.
