We give you all of the tools that you need to succeed and grow into a Branch Manager position! As an entry-level ABM, you get to go through an 18 – 24 month on-the-job paid training program in which you learn all of the ins and outs of branch management. Then, you pay that knowledge forward when you are assigned your own branch to manage. Promotion to Branch Manager typically requires relocation, but don’t fret, we provide a full relocation package when we promote our ABMs to Branch Managers.

Your main focus is on helping our customers meet their financial goals. You actively seek opportunities to originate new loan business by listening to our customers, understanding their needs, and recommending the best consumer loan and voluntary product solutions for them. You also educate customers on all of our consumer lending services, including how to improve credit and consolidate debt. You help them through the loan application process and make payment reminder calls when needed.

You handle a variety of tasks that contribute to the success of the branch, including evaluating loan applications, performing risk analysis, making credit decisions, administering loan closings, and processing insurance claims. Your management abilities shine as you assist the Branch Manager with recruiting and training as well as developing and implementing plans to meet sales goals, promote our core values, and ensure an outstanding client experience. If you love digging in to get the job done and seeing your hard work pay off in the growth of your branch and advancement opportunities within the company, then this is your gateway to success!
