What are the general credit requirements to work at a bank/credit union?

I had an interview today for a financial services position at a local credit union. the interview when spectacularly, I was the first of 4 candidates to be interviewed, but it was made known I had done very well and would like get an offer. I'm very interested in the job and loved the people I met there. However, towards then end of the interview they had mentioned you needed good credit to work there. If my credit isnt that great, roughly 580 score, with a defaulted student loan and minimal recent credit history, am I basically disqualified? What minimums do financial institutions look for, if I'm not going to be qualifie because of this, I would like to extend the courtesy of notifying them I am withdrawing my application from consideration. If anyone out there in banking HR has a good answer, I would truly appreciate it!
