    We’re fortunate to live and work in a community with so many veterans, who bring an unmatched level of dedication, problem solving and worth ethic to Consumers Credit Union. That’s why Consumers makes every effort to attract military veterans from all branches, including active Guard and Reserve members, to our team. Recently, the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency certified Consumers as a silver-level Veteran-Friendly Employer in recognition of the organization’s dedication to hiring and retaining veterans.
    Veteran-Friendly Employer (VFE) certification means Consumers joins companies like GM, Kellogg’s and Whirlpool, and many others who also have robust veteran hiring programs. There are more than 285 employers in the VFE program today, but only 9 percent have reached the silver-level certification. Consumers is honored to be the 25th silver employer and plan to use this certification to build better strategies for attracting, hiring and retaining veterans back into the workforce.
    “My passion was training and leading soldiers,” says Member Service Representative and Army Veteran Nick McManigle. “Now I’m using those skills to train and lead members with their financial needs.”
    Veterans looking for a new career can apply on the Consumers career page. There, one can see what it’s like to work at Consumers. Plus, postings for current career opportunities are listed for the headquarters in Kalamazoo and 20 offices located throughout West Michigan.
