Are you looking for a career where you can make a positive impact on the lives of others? Do you value community, purpose and personalized service? If so, working at a credit union like Ascend may be the perfect fit for you.

Here at Ascend, we are people helping people. That includes our members, our neighbors and each other. We show our appreciation to our employees through competitive benefits packages for both full-time and part-time positions. They include:

  • Competitive market-based pay
  • Paid time off and 10 paid holidays
  • Annual or quarterly bonus/incentive plan
  • 401(k) with 10% company match
  • Tuition assistance
  • Credit union services free of charge
  • Employee Referral Plan

And much more!

One of the unique advantages of working at Ascend is that it is a credit union, rather than a traditional bank. Credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives that are owned by their members. This means that instead of serving shareholders or investors, credit unions are focused on providing the best possible services to their members.

One of the key benefits of working at a credit union is the sense of community and purpose that comes with it. Credit unions like Ascend are often deeply involved in their local communities, and employees have the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of their members.

In addition, credit unions typically offer more personalized service and more competitive rates on loans and savings products than traditional banks. Because they are not-for-profit, they are able to pass on savings to their members in the form of lower fees and better rates. For instance, in 2022, Ascend returned $5 million to its members in the form of bonus dividend payments, loan interest refunds and reward payments for loyal debit card use.

Overall, working at a credit union like Ascend offers many benefits beyond just the competitive benefits package. It provides a sense of community, purpose, and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.

But don’t just take our word for it! For seven consecutive years, Ascend has been recognized by the American Banker as one of the best credit unions to work for!
