Mortgage Loan Officer - $500 New Hire Bonus!

Company: Consumers Credit Union
Location: Gurnee
Posted on: June 6, 2021

Job Description:

We're Consumers Credit Union (CCU) and our mission is to empower our members to live better lives.

We're a financial institution just like a bank, except not exactly. Banks have customers, but because we're a not-for-profit, member-owned credit union, we have members. And because we're not a bank, we don't drive up profits just because shareholders demand it. Instead, we focus on driving up member happiness through low loan rates, high deposit rates and low- or no-fee products and services. We focus on things like transparency, simplicity, helpfulness, integrity, positivity and inclusion - and we always put our members first.

In fact, we serve nearly 178,000 members and have over $2.6 billion in assets. We employ nearly 500 people in the Chicago area and have 18 branch locations in Illinois. We offer access to a national shared branching network, and more than 80,000 surcharge-free ATMs worldwide. And although we've been around for over 80 years, we're just getting started!
