I was not sure if I was at a business seminar or the circus. The Get Motivated Business Seminar truly put a fun twist on the traditional business setting.
Shooting a tv commercial that will feature NBA great Magic Johnson was truly a magic experience!
Dine and Dash was a great experience for Detroit interns to mingle and discover some of the great places around downtown.
Detroit is working to regain its title of “the Paris of the Midwest,” and by working at Quicken Loans I have the amazing opportunity to see the transformation firsthand.
I’ve always been a fan of Detroit, but I never thought I’d enjoy being downtown on a daily basis as much as I do. Something is happening in the city. I can see the changes. I can feel the energy.
What does the game of golf have to do with being successful at our jobs? If you’re not a golfer, you might be inclined to say, “NOTHING!” Golfers wear funny pants, it’s the most boring sport to watch on TV, and you have to be extremely quiet… right?

In sum, being a college player was an awesome experience! I learned a lot, became best friends with my teammates, and traveled to ten different states to play some of the top courses in the nation during my career.

I get to work right next to the ballpark – Comerica Park is only three blocks from the new Quicken Loans offices. How cool is it that? I can look out the window and watch the Tigers taking batting practice or see all of the fans roam the streets heading to Comerica!
I would encourage skeptics to jump into the world of social media. It is not only a good source for news, it opens doors professionally and socially.
The warm sunshine on my face and a band playing sweet jazz music in the background. This isn’t a vacation spot; it’s where I take my lunch break at Quicken Loans.
