Are you looking to work for a fun, fast paced, hardworking, learning setting with great people in a team orientated environment?

If you are interested in helping people achieve their financial goals and making a difference in the lives of others, a credit union is a place for you. Credit unions are a great place to work as we are focused on our mission of "people helping people". Working at a credit union is fun, fulfilling and best of all, we get to make a difference in our members' lives.

Sound enticing? Let me tell you a little bit about PFCU. First, let's talk about what a credit union is and how we are different from a bank. 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. As a member-owned and cooperative institution, a credit union provides a safe and sound place to save and borrow at reasonable rates with your best interest at heart.

With origins dating back to the 1950's, PFCU is a member-owned financial institution with offices in Morton Grove, Barrington, Des Plaines, Evanston, Glenview and Franklin Park. We remain dedicated to maintaining close, personable relationships with our members while delivering the best possible products and services. Along with CEO Mary Ann Pusateri' s long tenure of over 33 years, PFCU has many team members with over 20 years of service. Learn more about PFCU at

We strive to help our members achieve their financial goals. Because we're not a bank, we don't drive up profits. Instead, we focus on driving up member satisfaction through our, low loan rates, high deposit rates and low or no fee products and services.

We are looking for a part time or full time Member Service Representative to join our team!
