On Thursday, November 12, Service Business Development Center Manager Jaymie McGrath and Finance Director Tammy Roberts visited Taft Middle School in Cedar Rapids, Iowa for Career Day.
To have these students understand what a job in finance or banking looks like, students read example portfolios of people and determined whether or not they are good candidates to receive loans. Jaymie and Tammy explained that good credit is established by paying bills on time and by not having a lot of debt. The better a person’s credit, the easier it is for a person to take out a loan. The students learned that all McGrath customers can get a loan for a car. Even if a customer does not have the best credit, we find a car that is the best financial decision for that person.
The students asked questions regarding the hours, pay ranges, benefits and whether or not a degree was needed to work at McGrath.
At McGrath, we hire people eighteen years-old or older with strong customer service, communication and organizational skills.
Employees receive great benefits like 401k savings, vacation and health, dental and vision insurance. Also, McGrath employees can get a membership to our new Body Shop Fitness Center for as low as $9 a month!
Jaymie and Tammy explained that individuals who start at McGrath with an entry level position have the opportunity to advance in the company.
The other two people that rotated with Tammy and Jaymie among the three 6th grade classes at Taft’s Career Day were a firefighter and a farmer.
For over 60 years, McGrath has been proudly serving the Cedar Rapids / Iowa City / Waterloo / Dubuque area with a large selection of vehicles, unmatched prices, and great financing options.
