Here’s what employees have to say about working at DFCU:
"From the beginning of my onboarding experience with DFCU Financial, it was apparent that this was a wonderful financial institution to be employed at and much different than the “Big Banks” I had worked for over the past 20 years. Being treated as an individual and not just a number is just one of benefits of working here. The feeling of pride that is felt from every position here--from Member Representative to CEO in supporting our branch team members to succeed and to promote to educating and cultivating our relationships with our members--is truly felt here.” –Alysia Schuler, Oakwood Southfield Branch
Mother and daughter team Dawn and Erica McDiarmid both came to work at DFCU:
“I had a change in life's circumstances, so I was looking for a part time job, but one that had meaning. My daughter Erica was already working for DFCU and encouraged me to apply for an opening. And she was right! Like Erica's experience, my training was very thorough, my supervisors are supportive and eager to help, and my coworkers make my time here enjoyable. Talking to our members, assisting them with their needs and uncovering additional ways to help them, is truly rewarding. I am happy to be a part of DFCU!” –Dawn McDiarmid, MSC
“I used to always say that I would work anywhere except at a bank or a credit union. Then, to make ends meet, I applied last minute for a job at DFCU Financial. I was really hoping for a teaching job for art students instead of a practical job. But then, first day of training, I fell in love with this company. I full heartedly believe DFCU genuinely cares about the people, both those who work in the company and those we service, which is such a stark contrast to so many businesses and ways of this world. The company-wide idea of making someone's day when they enter the branch made me love the company, and the constant effort made to abide by these standards made me stay.” –Erica McDiarmid, Oakwood Southfield Branch
