Over 1,200 Quicken Loans team mates showed up to help improve parts of north Detroit that needed a little love. The result was uplifting, exciting and more than anyone involved could have hoped for.
Quicken Loans has an amazing internship program. The interns – now a group of over 1,000 – work on every team to expand the influence of the company while simultaneously exploring their strengths and applying their talents. Keith Elder, the Director of Software Engineering at Quicken Loans, was so impressed with his intern, Waleed, that he composed a blog post to honor his hard work. It’s an inspiring read that highlights an incredible passion for Detroit and the value of working at QL.
A company like Quicken Loans values and honors their military team members above and beyond the call of duty, so to speak. And whether you talk to a Home Loan Expert who works with veterans, or a veteran team member who works to support the Home Loan Experts, it’s clear that this feeling of support and dedication is pervasive. Just recently, Quicken Loans business consultant, Scott Hanson, had to take a leave of absence while he attended basic training for the Army National Guard.
Light the candles and let the confetti fly! I’m proud to shout Happy 2nd Birthday to the Quicken Loans Zing Blog! I recently sat down with Victoria Araj, who manages Zing and has worked at Quicken Loans for eight years. She has played a key role in the blog’s development and fast-growing popularity. Here are some highlights from our interview.
Within the last week, both The New York Times and USA Today published articles that feature the unique working environment of Quicken Loans.
Quicken Loans gets crafty when it comes to motivating hard work and today the Servicing Team showed us how. Using a water balloon fight to incentivize productivity this month, they got wild in Campus Martius to celebrate achieving their goals.
Every week it seems like the VA Unit banking team in Cleveland is up to something. They’re so involved in the veteran community that I have to be on my game 24/7 just to be able to keep up. It’s a good thing for them I welcome the challenge. The team’s most recent endeavor was in support of our partnership with Operation Homefront for their Back to School Brigade.
Last year, some of the elite forces of our VA loan unit showed the Tough Mudder who’s boss, and this year was no different. Tough Mudder 2013 was conquered in support of, and in honor of, our partners at Paralyzed Veterans of America. The course was also conquered with the overall goals of Tough Mudder in mind which support and encourage participants to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project – a cause that’s also close to our hearts at Quicken Loans.
By now you probably know that at Quicken Loans, we provide expert advice and amazing client services. And you should know how we also support veterans organizations like Paralyzed Veterans of America because we really care about the men and women who serve in our country’s armed forces. We have partnered with Paralyzed Veterans of America in support of their Mission: ABLE project. Recently, their national president, Bill Lawson, stopped by our Cleveland office to take a tour and learn about what we do on a day-to-day basis.
