We believe in taking care of our community, which includes our employees. Mission Fed offers great benefits as part of our commitment to employee retention and employee appreciation. The benefits of working at Mission Fed include medical, dental and vision benefits to full-time and part-time employees, paid time off and paid holidays, regular hours and limited weekend hours. Employees can also enroll in a competitive 401(k) match program—up to a 6% contribution match—to accrue retirement savings. In addition, we offer competitive wages, incentive programs, higher education tuition reimbursement and continued training and career coaching to ensure employees look forward to coming to work each day.

Benefits like these, our dedication to the community and our employee recognition program, have led to Mission Fed winning the Workplace Excellence Award in 2011, 2013 and 2015 from Peter Barron Stark Companies for ranking among the “Best of the Best” places to work, based on our exceptional employee engagement survey results.

We also help develop leadership qualities in our employees by providing opportunities for leadership development, mentoring and continued education. Our tuition reimbursement program is meant to help employees accomplish their career goals both short-term and long-term.

Because we’re committed to engagement within our community, we partner with local schools and nonprofits to sponsor and participate in programs that give back to our valued community. We encourage our employees to get involved in these events and in community outreach to further build employees’ leadership skills.

In addition to helping the community, employees have the chance to take part in helping members with everyday banking needs while also helping them achieve important financial milestones in their lives. We call these milestones “Mission Fed Moments” because they are often life-changing and deeply rewarding. Employees find being a part of these moments profoundly satisfying, and it’s just another way Mission Fed employees get to make a difference.

At Mission Fed, our priority is people, not profit. We treat our members, partners and employees as part of our family, and we work together to help each other succeed. Mission Fed knows our employees are a vital part of our mission, and we build our corporate culture accordingly.
