Why Choose Us
It's about more than a job and a pay check. We believe our success depends on attracting and retaining great people, that's why we offer a competitive total compensation package; but as an employer of choice, it doesn't end there. We work hard to provide our team members with a positive work environment, opportunities for advancement and the right work-life balance.

In addition to our competitive annual salaries, our variable compensation component is a performance based incentive program that rewards all employees (who have passed probation) for accomplishing individual performance goals and for their efforts in helping the WCU achieve our objectives.

We contribute 50% of the cost shared premiums for employee benefits which include Basic Life Insurance, Dependent Life Insurance, Accidental Death and Dismemberment and Extended Health and Dental.

Work-Life Balance Expand/Collapse
Flexible Work Hours
We understand that the standard work week doesn’t fit into everyone’s life. We’re committed to helping our employees find a work/life balance and do this by offering greater choices and flexibility in the way they schedule their time. Our flexible work options can include flex time, job sharing or part-time employment depending on organizational needs.
Above average vacation leave
New employees start accruing paid vacation on their first day. They will receive a minimum of three weeks vacation and as their length of service increases, they have the ability to earn a maximum of six weeks per year.
To assist employees in maintaining their work/life balance we offer six personal days per year for employees to use at their discretion.

Making a Difference in our Community
Part of WCU’s mission is to make a positive impact in our community; we do this by supporting community building events and causes. We believe in giving back to the communities in which we operate as it enhances lives and enriches our communities.
Our team members are encouraged to give back to the community and are continuously volunteering, fundraising and attending different charity events. WCU gives each employee an allotted amount of money to donate to a charity of their choice throughout the year. We also have a Community Involvement Committee who is responsible for coordinating the different initiatives throughout the year.
We offer our staff $100.00 each year to go towards something that will benefit their physical wellbeing. This could be a gym membership, exercise equipment or vitamin program!
What our Employees are Saying
It's easy for us to tell you what life is like at Weyburn Credit Union and why you would love being a part of our team, but we thought it would be better to let some our people tell you for themselves.
Krista, CFO Expand/Collapse
“As a CA, CPA I could ‘do the books’ for any type of corporation. I was drawn to work at the Weyburn Credit Union because I feel I am doing more than just the ‘books’ – I am part of something bigger. Weyburn Credit Union is an organization that wants to do better by the communities it operates in and the people who live in those communities. Whether sponsoring the stage at the Cugnet Center, ensuring our school playgrounds have new equipment for kids to play on, or our staff dedicating their time to community events like Communithon, The Hospital Foundation, or the Adopt-a-Family program, I feel that working here allows me to play a role in something that is bigger than just me and a paycheque – that doing what I do each day contributes back to the people of Weyburn and surrounding areas – that my job in some way makes a difference. That is something you can’t get from working just anywhere and why I am grateful to be employed at Weyburn Credit Union.”
Ryan, Consumer Lending Specialist Expand/Collapse
“I wanted to be part of an organization that saw my potential, and wanted to help me grow and succeed, that was a strong supporter of the community and that cared more about the customer than the bottom line. Weyburn Credit Union is all those things and more.”
Marliss, Senior Manager of Member Experience Expand/Collapse
“WCU is a great place to work because we are all treated like a valuable piece to the organization’s success, regardless of what your position is. I view my department more like my ‘family’ than my coworkers and enjoy coming to work every day because I get to have fun and work with great people. WCU is committed to our individual success and help us advance in our careers. We are offered endless training opportunities and professional development in order to meet our career goals.”
