    Andrea Plasek


    Hall of Fame

    Hall of Fame: Andrea Plasek

    It’s no secret: MCCU appreciates our employees and the hard work and dedication they provide. Today, we recognize Andrea Plasek for her leadership and long-term commitment to MCCU. We are a better organization because of you, Andrea!

    Name: Andrea Plasek

    Position: Financial Solutions Consultant, Sandstone

    Length of Employment: 15+ years

    Let’s turn the clock back to your early days at MCCU. What position did you first interview for? How did you learn of the position? What was your interview like?

    I first interviewed for a part-time teller position with the Hinckley branch. At the time, I was a stay-at-home mom, and I started to get bored at home with the kids back in school. One day, I decided to pick up an application at the credit union. I was so nervous for the interview. I had 10 years of experience as a grocery store cashier, but I was worried I wouldn’t get hired due to having no college experience.

    What is your favorite MCCU memory?

    In the beginning years of my employment, the credit union would host an annual training and employee appreciation get-together. One year, the credit union rented out an entire hotel in Siren, WI. Each employee received a certain amount of fake money to play poker and blackjack. Whoever ended up with the most fake money at the end of the night won $200 in cold hard cash. That night, I learned cards are not my game, and to NEVER play cards with Tyler Z. Lol.

    What are three work-related facts about you?

    1.) The Hinckley branch went without hiring a new employee for seven straight years! The same group of employees kept it going, and we all got along so well.

    2.) I worked as a part-time teller before becoming a full-time FSC.

    3.) On casino paydays, us tellers would perform up to 300 transactions in a day and still manage to balance our cash drawers to the penny.

    How has the financial world changed since you first started at MCCU?

    We used to spend 45 minutes a day to count our cash drawers, manually encode our checks and unjam the printer wheels from little pieces of paper. Savings pass books were also a thing of the past. We used to have to write each deposit and withdrawal in the member’s register so they would have a record of their balance.

    What items would you put in a MCCU time capsule to be opened 100 years from now?

    I would include my business card and this Hall of Fame tribute so people could look me up, read my obituary, and know what a fun gal I was. I would also include pens, pencils, some loose coins, and denominations of each dollar bill since they are likely to be collector items one day.

    What story would your colleagues share about you?

    I have a story from when Lake State first merged with Members Cooperative. Our Network Security Analyst came to our Hinckley office to change the security codes wearing a long green raincoat with a hood. I had no clue who he was, and he went over to our security alarm without saying a word to anyone. I almost took him out! The look on his face was priceless. Nowadays, whenever he comes into the Sandstone office, he makes sure I know he’s in the building!
