 I feel this company not only says we appreciate you as an employee but also shows us we are appreciated in how employees are involved in many different areas of the business. For example, we are invited to sit on focus groups, and participate and volunteer at many events. I also appreciate the level of training and opportunities to grow. I feel at home. I feel encouraged, challenged and appreciated!

 Being part of an organization where your altruistic spirit toward your community is supported, encouraged and acknowledged, and where you can talk about being part of a work family and truly mean it, is something that we happily take for granted at Connect First Credit Union. I haven't been at Chinook very long but I've been privileged to be part of credit union families for 20 years now, as part of four different communities. I always marvel at how lucky I am to find such great people, and this last stop is no exception. Coincidence? I think not!
