Why Work at Premier America Credit Union?


Working at Premier America has really
made a difference in my life because I been given the opportunity to both work and go to school and then do some volunteer work all while being a single mom which
is not easy. Well I’ve been with Premier America for seven years and I started out as the Financial Services Specialist. It’s very hard for someone to say hey I love what I do but I actually love what I do and waking up early in the
morning wanting to be at work and wanting to make a difference. And I’ve been with the
credit union for 15 years. As a teller, they slowly progresed me to an SSS position and then from there on, I learned the basic stuff for being a banker so then moved up to SSS. I love my position because it’s constantly changing. Financial services

learned from as well as an inner circle of people that teach me every single day
