Prospera Credit Union – Why Work With Us?


At Prospera, we are a supportive team of like-minded people, past pioneers, and present day visionaries. Steadfast focus on workplace culture, flexible benefit programs tailored to individual employees, ongoing training and professional development, and a keen focus on internal communications are a few of the values that strengthen morale.

our culture

If you like the sounds of the following core values you’d really love working here. We aim to:

  • Be accessible, professional, and friendly as we strive for service excellence;
  • Promote a sales culture with a broad range of products to meet member needs;
  • Be responsive to the marketplace with innovative products and superior delivery;
  • Offer technology to meet member needs;
  • Further expand existing relationships and attract new members;
  • Build member loyalty, advocacy, and insistence;
  • Attract, develop, and retain quality employees;
  • Be community-involved and recognized as a good corporate citizen.

If you are tired of hitting the snooze button of life and are looking to wake up to an exciting new career in a dynamic environment, then you are on the right page. Literally and figuratively. Sure, you may be looking for a new job. But what you’ll find here is a new lifestyle  – professionally and personally.

You don’t want to be spoon-fed just any old benefits. You want benefits that actually make sense for you – ones that will meet your own needs. Benefits that help you achieve both your personal and financial goals.

At Prospera, we have developed one of the most competitive benefits plans in the industry – designed to be as flexible as your changing needs. Whether you are single, have a family, or are nearing retirement, Lifestyles Benefits don’t just celebrate your unique life, they celebrate your unique lifestyle.

Self-directed benefits allow you to tailor your benefits package to your individual needs. (While your mother may beg to differ, no one knows your needs better than you do.)

in a nutshell

  • You can choose the preferred level of coverage in dental, extended health, MSP, life, and accidental death and dismemberment insurance, short and long term disability;
  • Flexible benefits help you make tax-effective benefit choices that will save you money;
  • The plan features a spousal "Co-ordinating" option which allows you to spend your flex dollars where they add value, rather than spending them on duplicate coverage already available through a spouse’s plan;
  • If you have flex dollars left over after making your main benefit choices, you can deposit them into a Health Care Spending Account (HCSA), contribute to your RRSP, buy additional vacation days, or take taxable cash.

    I have been working at Prospera Credit Union full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great new executive team focused on running a good business while providing a positive growth focused culture. Compensation is good with fantastic employee banking benefits. Would highly recommend a career with Prospera for anyone who is looking to grow their career and be part of a progressive member owned organization.

    Cons

    Not really a con but the organization is in the beginning stages of bringing together two credit unions. This creates opportunities for anyone who is career driven, willing to be nimble and focused on the business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Prospera Credit Union (Chilliwack, BC) in March 2019.

    Interview

    I was very pleased with the entire process of the interview, including the phone interview. Very knowledgeable and answered all my questions! I started with a phone interview and the following week I was set up for a in person interview that felt very smooth.
