Even after being off of active duty from the Marine Corps for nearly four years, I still use the lessons I learned in the military in the civilian work force. BBVA Compass has been an excellent place to put my experiences to work because, like the military, it takes the success of every single person in the organization to accomplish its mission of being the best universal bank. You are truly part of a team at BBVA Compass and when it says that it wants to be the "best place to work," it is obvious that it is more than a slogan. I would highly recommend employment at BBVA Compass to any veteran that wants to continue working for a great organization after honorably serving in the world's finest military force.

BBVA Compass has always been a military friendly organization. They recognize the heroic efforts of our veteran's and Reserve duty employees, having tremendous respect and admiration for all service members, and are committed to hiring them. In the military the best leaders are those who always take care of their people-and its is no different in the civilian workplace. BBVA Compass takes care of and supports their employees, which allows me to serve in America's Navy- A Global Force for Good!
Sharon Morgan, Fraud Investigator
The discipline and leadership I learned in the U.S Army has allowed me to excel within BBVA Compass. The attributes the Army teaches stands out to employers and I truly believe that it really helped me get my foot in the door. They gave me the ability to set my own career path and rewarded me for my hard work. Through my ambition and leadership abilities I was able to stand out among my peers and further my career in less than a year. BBVA Compass is grateful to those who serve. They accommodate my Military leave and appreciate my opinions and work ethic. BBVA Compass is a great place to work. I certainly have benefitted from a great working environment that accommodates and provides me with avenues to grow.

I’ve always felt as though my service meant something to the organization. Whether it was early in my career, while I had a break in service, or in later years, when I joined the National Guard, the bank has always been supportive in helping me balance my civilian and military careers.
