What Our Employees Say

“I started out as a Member Specialist I and since then they grew to a Member Specialist II and then a Member Specialist III and then now landed on my current role as Assistant Branch Manager. I would say that our culture here is accountability. We set out to say this year is the year of the member and I feel like we really supported that. The community outreach that Great Lakes does here is really beautiful. No matter whether the event is big or small GLCU really does go out of their way to help support all our businesses and our community. I would say it’s a great company to be a part of just because being here really gave me the confidence to know that I can go into any kind of career path that I want and succeed.”

-Melissa Ortiz, Assistant Branch Manager

“I started out as a teller. Then I held just about every position there was in the branches for staff. And then I raised my hand that I wanted to be a Branch Manager and then most recently, Senior Manager of Member Experience. Whatever is it you are looking to do within your professional career, they (GLCU) do everything they can to help you get there. They really care a lot about their employees. I am excited to see the growth that we continue to see by expanding our branches, providing more opportunities to really connect with our members in those communities where they might be under-served or under-banked.”

-Kelsey Coonce, Senior Manager of Member Experience
