Mortgage Counselor Interview

Mortgage Counselor

I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America in March 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online- very time consuming and detailed application. I followed up and received an email that said I would have a better chance of being hired if I volunteered for them. Nonetheless they called me for an intervew a few months later. I had a phone interview with a Regional Manager who was unabble to answer basic questions about benefits and training. They made me an offer via email that referenced their compensation plan but had no specifics about benefits or reimbursement for education I was expected to obtain. I asked for this and never heard back. After 4 days, and having read numerous negative reviews on glassdoor as well as many many complaints on BBB website, I decliend the offer. Over a week later they sent me the same offer letter in the mail. Very disorganized. Every time I got an email from them I got it 3 times- their email system has some issues so I am wary of the rest of their software systems.

Interview Question – what is the most recent book you read?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – extremely bad glassdoor reviews, bad reputation among mortgage underwriters and numerous complaints on BBB website.

Call Center Manager Interview

Call Center Manager
Charlotte, NC

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America in June 2009.

Interview Details – It was a job fair experience for NACA (foreclosure prevention). I got there at 8:30 and waited about an hour with about 2500 other applicants. We first saw a movie about the company and then Bruce Marks, the founder, spoke briefly about the company and how and why he started it. Then we moved as a group to another room and waited about another hour for a one on one interview. I then left the building and received a phonecall about an hour later to come in for another interview later that same day. I came back at 4:30.This interview was a panel interview of about 10 people by 10 people from NACA. The interview lasted about an hour and a half before Mr Marks had to catch a plane and leave very quickly. I didn't get the job but I wish I had. The people really seemed to enjoy working with each other and to also enjoy what they did. I didn't meet anyone that I felt was unfriendly or unprofessional. There was a very diverse group of people running the show and they all worked well together interviewing and questioning people to start the Charlotte office of NACA.
