My Team, My Town – Bloomington

As a national company, our Coworkers sit out of some pretty cool places (not that we’re biased or anything). Our My Team, My Town series highlights … you guessed it! Our remarkable teams and their favorite places and activities in the towns they call home. 

Our February Branch of the Month is making waves in the Bloomington, MN market! We recently had the pleasure sat down with the team to chat resume tips, happy hour spots, and (of course) the Mall of America!
