A day in the life...of an FSR!

I think I speak for Steph and Joe when I say they really appreciated all your votes from the "Vote for your favorite FSR" contest!


Now that the winners have been determined, I bet you are wondering what they plan to do with their day off work!


When I asked Steph what her plans were, she told me she plans on searching for Waldo on a nice quiet beach. (Now, is that Waldo from "Where's Waldo?" or is it something along these lines? Hmm.... What do you guys think?)


Joe, on the other hand, is going to spend some quality time with his kids and take them to the zoo. (A word of advice to you Joe: Don't dress your kids in anything that may resemble a small, helpless animal!)



Sounds like they will both enjoy their well-deserved day off :)


Shred It and Forget It!

I wanted to give a giant THANK YOU to everyone who attended the Shred Event on Saturday. We love putting this event on for our members and for the community. Despite the cold and rainy weather we had a great turnout and shredded over 2 tons of paper, saving 4.5 trees!



My name is Matt Puczko and I've been with Star Choice for just over 11 years now. I really can't believe it's been that long! The only employee that's been here longer is Star Choice's President Dan. I came to Star Choice Credit Union after graduating from UW-River Falls where I received two BAs: Computer Information Systems and Economics. My main duties at Star Choice are ensuring our computers and systems keep running. I also provide member support via help with online banking and other areas. There are also lots of day to day tasks helping fellow employees. 

Outside of work I like to go hiking, fishing, playing with all of my gadgets (I am in IT after all!), playing guitar but most of all spending time with my family. My wife & I welcomed our first child into the world back in November, a son Oliver. He's been keeping us on our toes ever since. The kid has more hair than most adults. It's crazy! We also have a three year old labradoodle, Punkie. Oh, we're also huge Packer fans. Probably an unpopular opinion among most of Star Choice's members! 

If you ever need help with online banking, mobile banking, bill pay or other IT questions, just call Star Choice and ask for me!




About Molly

I do most of the updating on our Social Media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, but this blog will give everyone at Star Choice the opportunity to keep our members updated and connected from their perspectives-everyone from Marketing to our IT department!

With that being said, I will start of by telling you a little bit about myself.

My name is Molly McCurdy and I am originally from Hastings, MN. I am a recent graduate of Winona State University (May 2011-its been a year already, holy cow!) and I graduated with a degree in Advertising & Marketing.  Right after college I found it very hard to be considered for any marketing or advertising positions. Regardless of my degree and knowledge of the field, without any experience your resume seems to go straight to the bottom of the pile. (Note to any new grads or college students...if you get the opportunity to do an internship, don't pass it up!)

Before I accepted the Marketing Coordinator position here at Star Choice Credit Union I worked for a temporary and permanent placement agency in downtown Minneapolis. I applied to the temp agency hoping they would place me in a position, and they ended up hiring me on internally which was great...for a little while! Although I didn't necessarily mind the position, over time I knew it wasn't what I wanted long-term. I wanted something I was more passionate about and something that I could use my degree in, so I started searching for Marketing positions around the Twin Cities and stumbled across this Marketing Coordinator position. I was so ready to start my career and prove myself, and despite my lack of "real world" experience, they thought I would be a great fit and offered me the position...which I am extremely grateful for!

If you don't already know the employee's of Star Choice, let me tell you that it didn't take long before I felt right at home! Shortly after my first week here, I was just starting to get into the swing of things and our President, Dan, was giving me a hard time, telling me it was about time I got some work done around here! I knew then that this was the perfect fit for me ;o)

So there is a little bit of information about my background and how I ended up at Star Choice! When I'm not working, I love being outside, spending time with my family, my boyfriend, Eric, and of Golden Retriever, Dakota! If you want to know anything else, just ask!



Welcome to Star Choice Credit Union's blog!

We already have a very loyal and active following on our Social Media sites (follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn!) but we wanted a place to give our members and prospective members more of a "behind the scenes" look at what really goes on at Star Choice Credit Union! :o)

...What do I mean by that? I think this video will help me explain.

 Be sure to follow our blog and keep checking back. We will be posting updates from all of the staff here at Star Choice Credit Union and guarantee some laughs along the way!
