What is it like working as a Vice President (VP), Consumer Lending?
Vice President (VP), Consumer Lending in Aberdeen:
"Small Credit Union, Many Hats."
Pros: Due to the size of our credit union, each executive level staff member has many hats to wear. I am in charge of consumer and indirect lending but also contribute to business and mortgage lending as well as participate in whatever else needs time and attention. It is a position that requires a well rounded base of knowledge and I enjoy it.
Cons: Absolutely the level of stress and expectations do not match the level of pay. We are small and so is our budget - so it is sometimes difficult to get approval to allocate the resources for the best tools. I am also the only "new" executive team member - all others have 15-20+ years at the same CU.
