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.

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.

Employees find being a part of these moments profoundly satisfying, and it’s just another way Mission Fed employees get to make a difference.
