PONTIAC, Mich. (WXYZ) — Mortgage lender United Shore has announced that the company plans to hire 1,500 new team members over the next 90 days in its Pontiac campus.
“We’ve already hired over 1,100 people in 2020, and now we’re ready to grow again by adding 1,500 more team members in the next few months,” said Mat Ishbia, president and CEO of United Shore. “Michigan residents and small businesses alike have been hit hard by this pandemic with nearly one in four of our neighbors in the state unemployed today. I’m proud to be able to create jobs at our growing company and help people get back to work.”
The announcement comes after Ishbia pledged no layoffs amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The housing market is starting to wake up and the housing industry is what is going to help pull America out of this recession,” said Ishbia. “We are ready to welcome new team members to our family and help with the pent up demand in the market. I don’t care if you’re coming off a production line, you’re in the service industry, or are a new college grad, if you’ve got a great attitude and a strong work ethic, and we will provide you with award-winning training to have a long and successful career with United Shore.”
