Why Principal?
Considerations for customer care candidates:

A foot in the door

Many of these roles are good entry points for 
what can be a lasting career. Other areas of the organization tend to recruit from them.

An opportunity to learn

Many of these roles offer a fantastic opportunity to learn about our products, services, and the customers we serve.

Training and skill development

These roles invest heavily in training and skill development— especially within the first 60 
to 90 days.

Purpose-driven work

These roles are the front lines of interacting with our customers and providing meaningful impact in their lives. Our engagement centers aren’t calling individuals to collect on delinquent payments. Rather they’re helping customers, whether it’s through retirement product education or navigating a tough life moment.
