“The students ask great questions and are really interested in how we operate. They are especially excited when we go behind the teller line and visit the vault to see where the money is stored,” Branch Manager Liz Fleischhacker

Students from Skyview Elementary School in Oakdale, Minnesota, got to be “Bankers for a Day” recently at Postal Credit Union’s Woodbury office. The 4th graders got a behind the scenes look at a variety of jobs, including the teller line, member service, loans, contact center and collections. Students also had the chance to interview for employment and learned how member-owned credit unions differ from other financial service providers.
“This is the 5th year PCU has invited students to our branch to learn more about what we do as a full-service credit union,” said Woodbury Branch Manager Liz Fleischhacker. “The students ask great questions and are really interested in how we operate. They are especially excited when we go behind the teller line and visit the vault to see where the money is stored.”
PCU representatives also visit the classroom at Skyview several times during the school year to talk to students about the importance of financial literacy. Among the topics discussed are making and balancing a budget, building a credit history, how to apply for credit, responsible money management and more.
