You’re already familiar with the benefits of being a VyStar member: affordable or no-cost products and services, conveniently located branches and surcharge-free ATMs, accessible Internet & Mobile Banking platforms, outstanding customer service and more. But did you know VyStar is also a great place to work?
At VyStar Credit Union, we proudly employ approximately 1,400 people throughout Northeast and Central Florida. We’re committed to the credit union philosophy of “People Helping People,” and it’s our mission to provide a working environment where our staff can flourish and excel.
As a credit union, VyStar understands the importance of both financial and physical wellness. That’s why we provide both our full- and part-time employees with a wide range of excellent employee benefit plans, including:
Plus, through our employee-run Wellness Committee, we encourage our employees to live their healthiest lives possible. We host free company-wide wellness events year-round, including health screenings, Couch to 5K challenges, salad days and much more. Last year, VyStar even received the silver “First Coast Healthiest Companies Award” from the First Coast Worksite Wellness Council and Florida Blue for our commitment to improving employee health and well-being.
Promoting a positive work-life balance for our employees is yet another one of our top priorities. VyStar employees are offered a flexible paid time off program based on length of service and full- or part-time status, with 10.5 paid holidays per year. Employees can also take advantage of academic growth opportunities through VyStar’s tuition reimbursement program, as well as on-the-job training, professional certifications, and personal development courses.
And not to mention that VyStar employees also have the chance to actively make a difference in the community by participating in charitable events throughout Northeast and Central Florida each year, such as the Mister Rogers’ Sweater Drive. The VyStar staff also helps raise funds to benefit hundreds of worthy programs such as the March of Dimes, the United Way of Northeast Florida, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Our renowned culture of community involvement has earned VyStar many accolades through the years. Over the last several years, we were honored to receive the “Partners in Philanthropy Award” from the Jacksonville Business Journal and were named one of Jacksonville Magazine’s “Companies With Heart.”
