Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union (TVFCU) is hosting a career fair on Feb. 8 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The BX – Brainerd Baptist Church’s multi-use meeting facility.
A variety of both entry and high-level positions are available and come with competitive pay – with a minimum of $16/hour for entry-level jobs – 100% employer-paid medical and dental insurance for individuals and other benefits and perks.
“In order to provide helpful, efficient and friendly service to our members, we have to create a work environment where our employees are happy, well-trained and well-equipped,” said Todd Fortner, president and CEO of TVFCU. “Providing staff with excellent support – including competitive pay, benefits, learning opportunities, a strong focus on community, healthy work-life balance and other areas – are key ingredients to our team’s success and our ability to serve and benefit the Tennessee Valley.”
Entry-level openings include personal teller positions with the tvfcuLIVE Studio and tvfcuLIVE Line and other customer service jobs in branches across Southeast Tennessee and North Georgia. Positions requiring industry experience include branch manager, senior programmer analyst, mortgage underwriter, desktop specialist and part-time marketing specialist. TVFCU’s marketing department is also seeking a community engagement intern.
Entry-level positions start at $16/hour, more than doubling the minimum wage in Tennessee and Georgia. TVFCU offers all full-time individual employees 100% employer-paid medical, dental, basic term life and long-term disability insurance with very affordable vision coverage and other low-cost options. The credit union also offers a 401k with employer match, a “success sharing” annual bonus program, tuition assistance and a student loan repayment program.
TVFCU employees enjoy great work-life balance with paid vacation time and 12 paid holidays. The credit union maintains a friendly, inclusive workplace with regular opportunities to be involved in internal and community-wide events and community service opportunities.
“We recently created a new program providing all credit union employees with eight hours of ‘volunteer time off’ each year,” said Dionne Jenkins, vice president of diversity and inclusion. “This means that an employee can take eight hours that they would normally be working and get paid to volunteer at a local nonprofit organization. This is designed to support important initiatives in our community and also provides one more reason why TVFCU is a great place to work.”
Job fair attendees will participate in a one-on-one introductory interview with a TVFCU recruiter. This will provide job-seekers the opportunity to learn more about open positions, connect with the TVFCU recruiting team and take the first step toward a new career at the largest credit union in southeast Tennessee.
Attendees may bring a resume, but it is not required. Job seekers should familiarize themselves with TVFCU, dress and present themselves professionally and exhibit a positive, dependable and motivated attitude.
Job seekers are encouraged to browse current openings and apply before the event at TVFCU’s online Career Center. They may also complete an application at the event using their smartphone.
Attendees should arrive at The BX, located at 4011 Austin St. in Chattanooga, at any point between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2023.
