Let’s all take a day off!

November 5, 2008

It’s a great couple months to work at the credit union!  We’ll be closed in November for Veterans Day and then two days at Thanksgiving.  Then the credit union will be closed for two days at Christmas and then again on New Year’s Day.  That’s 6 days off over a span of five weeks!  I’m certainly not complaining.  One thing to remember is that the days before and after holidays are always much more busy than usual.  I think it’s well worth it though to get to spend time with loved ones and put the worries of work aside.

What do you think? What days do you have off this holiday season?  What days do you wish you had off?


Closed for Easter / Holiday Schedules

March 19, 2008

Piedmont Credit Union will be closed on Monday, March 24, 2008. (aka. the day after Easter)

Over the last two or three years our credit union has been adjusting it’s holiday schedule.  Last year it more closely followed the Federal Reserve’s holiday schedule.  In my experience working at smaller credit unions, I’ve found that often the credit union takes the same holidays as it’s sponsor company.  Being founded as a teacher’s credit union, it used to be that we closed the entire week of Christmas & New Year’s, just like schools!   Much to the chagrin of our beloved staff, those days are long gone.  But maybe next year we’ll ask the Board of Directors for Spring Break! 😉
