    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Guaranteed Rate.

    Interview Details

    Basic question about yourself, business relationships, volume, and product knowledge. You first take a typing test just to see how fast you type I believe you have to be @ least 30-35 Words a Minute. The next step was the interview process, which takes about 45 minutes because your talking to more than one manager. If they like you they will give off good signs that your a fit. I received a call 2 days later. I declined due to the low guarantee draw amount. Pretty decent experience overall.

    Post Closing Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Interview Details

    The planning of the interview was all over the phone. The department manager contacted me after receiving my resume and we set up an interview for a few days after. The manager sent me an email with follow up information, an application packet with directions to sign up for a background check, and directions to the office. I arrived at the interview 20 minutes early. I waited in the lobby until the manager and his supervisor came out. All three of us talked in an office for about 45 minutes. Halfway through the interview a third employee came in, he didn't really introduce himself. The interviewers mostly told me about the company and asked a few questions. I heard back from them about a week later.
