Team Member Testimonials
“One of the best things about working at WMCU is that each day gives me the opportunity to be better. A better person, a better communicator, a better teammate, a better resource for our members. The only way I can do this is with my team and a positive atmosphere. I have that at WMCU.”
-Jeanie Smith, Chief Operations Officer

“Atmosphere and culture sound very cliché, but mean a lot to me. Since joining the WMCU team the atmosphere within the organization is amazing. We serve our members daily and enjoy doing it. Our members mean everything to us and creating that atmosphere for them is what we are all about. When it comes to culture, the team here is awesome. The team is so helpful and eager to help you succeed. It definitely feels more like family than co-workers.”

“I came to WMCU after working in a restaurant because I needed to find a better job with consistent hours, consistent income, and health insurance. I figured I needed a lot more than that; I wanted to work for a company where I was valued and enjoy going to every day. I never knew I needed these relationships that I have built with team members and members. They are so understanding that life happens and I have never felt more comfortable asking for a mental health day (which isn’t often). This is truly one of the best places I have worked!”

“I love everything about my job. I have been here for a long time and genuinely wake up and look forward to coming to work (most days). I value the friendships that I have made over the years with my colleagues and consider the WMCU team a second family. I also value the relationships I have made with my members. I have known a lot of them since I have started here and they still come to me for business, even though I moved to another office. I have even established relationships with multiple members of the same family, as parents refer their kids to me for loan help. I feel as if I am a trusted resource if I can help the financial needs of everyone in the same family.”

"I worked for the credit union for over 33 years and have retired with my husband to start a new adventure. During my time at the credit union, I worked as a Teller, a Share Draft Coordinator, an Operations Clerk, an Accounting Manager and finally the HR Manager. This credit union was my career, my family, my support group, and was a huge influence on my life. They have built a team that really cares about the members and cares about each other. I’ll miss being part of the team at the credit union; but the friendships I made will always be there.
Since you are just starting your journey with us remember every position at the credit union is important in our mission to serve our members. So, work hard, be the best you can be and have fun!"

Since I have been here, there have been a lot of changes in my life; Through all of them, the Credit Union has been there for me and has treated me as a family member, not just an employee. The Credit Union has given me opportunities to broaden my knowledge and become more confident in the financial industry. I love working here and am ever so grateful for the wonderful friendships I have made over the past 10 years.”

There are many amazing benefits to being apart of the West Michigan Credit Union family. From day one, I have been treated with the upmost respect and greeted with an atmosphere I actually look forward to walking into each morning. Everyone in this family is so welcoming and eager to jump in and help whenever they can. When I first started here, everyone was so interested in learning about me and seeing what kind of things make me unique. Ever since, this team has utilized the passions I have and let me grow in my personal endeavors; they have even let me assist in bigger projects I never thought I would get the opportunity to be apart of.
Our members are some of the kindest people I have had the pleasure to meet. The training I received was the best of the best, and I have since been able to learn a substantial amount about our products and services to assist our members in the best way possible. Each and every interaction we get with our members is a blessing, whether we are celebrating or helping them meet financial goals.
At WMCU, we really do strive to have the best service and help our members lead a life that is Simply Better.
I love being apart of this tight-knit family more and more everyday. They are so supportive, kind, and caring. They are wonderful people and I am so honored to work with them and be apart of this incredible credit union."
