I spent most of my career working in Pensacola’s nonprofits. When the opportunity presented itself to join PenAir’s Marketing Department, I couldn’t resist the culture, the professional development and the benefits package.

Newsweek America's Best Credit Unions

Newsweek and market data research firm Plant-A Insights Group recently released their ranking of America’s Best Regional Banks and Credit Unions 2024, recognizing the top 250 Regional Banks and top 250 Credit Unions in the United States.

Star class="wrapper"> Names PenAir Among Top CU

In order to evaluate the more than 5,000 credit unions in the United States, Forbes enlisted the help of Statista, a marketing research firm, to survey nearly 26,000 U.S. citizens from all 50 states on their banking relationships. Financial institutions were scored on overall recommendations and satisfaction, as well as five subdimensions (trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services, and financial advice). Only 3.4% of credit unions nationwide make this prestigious list.

Need a little more information?

First impressions are everything! So we try to make it a positive one. Here are some helpful suggestions we have for our team members:

  • Take Pride in your appearance – “proper” grooming, minimal wrinkles (in your clothing), natural hair shades, light fragrances (being mindful of those around you suffering from allergies), etc.
  • We do participate in “Corporate Wear” around here. It’s a way to remain uniform without having a specific uniform. After all, we want you to still be you – just with a PenAir logo.

We’ll cover the rest during the interview process. These are just the basics.

We are on a bi-weekly pay frequency with 26 pay periods. In the two months where there are 3 pay periods, no premiums are deducted from the third pay period.

As a Credit Union, we get all the bank holidays. We consider it an added benefit for our team. Here are the 2023 dates.
