Through our empowered staff, SunWest’s mission is to provide exceptional service focused on dedication, integrity, and compassion to help our members grow and thrive.
SunWest Credit Union will improve the financial health of our members while enriching the communities we serve.
We will accomplish this by sticking to our core values.
It’s not just a catchy slogan thrown around in credit union land. It’s a phrase we live and breathe–it’s ingrained in everything we do at SunWest. We didn’t set out to be the average bank in 1937, and we certainly aren’t going to start now. We believe in the power of real people doing everything they can to provide the best service and create the strongest communities. If that sounds like something you can get behind, you’ve come to the right place. If you don’t have a strong desire to better the lives of our members and strengthen the community in which you live, one of the big banks is probably hiring.
We love featuring our employees on our social media, and our members even show the love with written reviews about their favorite SunWest team members. Feel free to browse our accounts to see how much fun we have working alongside real people who love serving people.
SunWest cares so much that we have made it part of our mission to help those who need it most. Whether it’s donating raised funds to local charities through our Refinance for a Reason program or helping our members get through difficult times through our Pay it Forward initiative, we know what it means to go above and beyond industry expectations.
SunWest Cares was created to help us fulfill our goal of bettering our community in as many ways as possible. We’ve participated in a variety of events all around Arizona! At the Phoenix Zoo, we helped clear a stream clogged with weeds so it could flow freely again. At Andre House in Phoenix, we prepared and served more than 500 meals in one evening, as well as helped sort clothing donations. With Go Paddle AZ at Pleasant Harbor, we went out in kayaks to gather trash to help clean up the beautiful Lake Pleasant. We work together to build communities and support the causes our employees care about the most.
"What I like most about working for SunWest are the relationships I’ve made with some genuinely good people and the lessons I’ve learned. Before I started with credit unions, I worked for a few of my favorite retail shops just so I could get discounts on my favorite things. It’s not an inspiring way to choose a job, but you have to admit that it’s sound economic logic.
However, working for credit unions has introduced me to people who are like-minded and kind; people who want to help others more than themselves. These people have contributed to every factor of my current life. They taught me how to save, how to build credit from the ground up, how to purchase a car and a home, and how to help my friends and family do the same. SunWest has given my niece and nephew an opportunity to start off with a strong financial foundation with our Future Funders accounts. They’ve helped one brother get back on his feet after a divorce and another to refinance out of a bad auto loan.
Lastly, I’m so thankful that these strong, amazing women in Marketing took a chance on me almost a year ago. They have been teaching me a whole different side of SunWest with patience, respect and a constant willingness to help."

"What I love most about working here is that it feels like I am working with Family. Here at the Arrowhead Branch working with each of my staff members is amazing. We can depend on each other, we work as a team and we sometimes forget that we are working. That's how much of a great atmosphere it is. I enjoy helping all my members and of course my regulars. Besides helping them reach their financial goals or even just helping them make a deposit, I am always an ear to them, and someone they can depend on. Watching my members grow and reach [and] achieve their goals because YOU helped them is such a rewarding feeling and I feel that, this is what BEING SUNWEST is. :)"
