MOrtgage Loan Originator Interview

MOrtgage Loan Originator
Scottsdale, AZ

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Quicken Loans in March 2014.

Interview Details – Really wasn't interested in position once the recruiter told me I would have to work 6 days+ a week and 12 hour days were common. I have a family and a life and it seemed to me that I would have neither if I took a job with their company .

Interview Question – Again, the question that caught me off guard was if I would be alright with working 12 hour days and a minimum of 6 days a week.   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Software Engineer - Android/IOS Interview

Software Engineer - Android/IOS
Detroit, MI

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Quicken Loans in February 2013.

Interview Details – I used to work there and I have interviewed few candidates.

The process starts with recruiter conversing with the candidates. After initial HR screening, the team that the candidate will be working with performs technical phone screening. It usually consists of a team leader and few developers. For Android related position, it mostly was basic android questions : fragments, activities, lifecycle, views, threading, OO related questions. There is usually no algorithm questions at this point. Usually, the software team is very nice and invite as much people as possible to on-site. They are mostly looking for people who knows the basics and are also cool/chill/fun to work with. Main point is to answer as much questions as possible and be friendly

If the candidate is good enough and knows the basics, they are invited to a on-site or remote conferencing interview. On-site interview consists of company tour, walking around with HR (I'm not sure what they exactly do but HR always just brought them to us when we were waiting for the candidate). The interview with the software team consisted of 30-45 minutes of code test where user has to create a very simple app. I would think it is an easiest app (would take a developer around 10-20 minutes to create) but I've seen a lot of candidates struggle with it since they might nervous to code it in front of people watching. If you are interviewing, just concentrate on creating something functional and shows your ability to code and your structure or create apps.

The above information for around beginning of 2014. My interview (Jan/Feb 2013) was a varied a little but overall consisted of same process.

Interview Question – Create simple app with button, edittext, activities, intents, textviews. I wouldn't write it in exact detail here since it is internal.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I've used a recruiter who helped me out but they weren't really good at negotiating.

Mortgage Banker Interview

Mortgage Banker
Detroit, MI

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Quicken Loans.

Interview Details – I initially applied on-line and received a phone call from a recruiter the next day. We did my phone interview at that time and it was about 20 minutes long. He asked what type of information I already heard about the company and why I was interested in the job. He was really easy to talk to. From there, he sent me an email requesting consent for a basic credit check. He called back the next day once that was completed to offer me an in-person interview for the next week. That interview last about an hour and a half. They really go over the whole job and training process, making sure you understand the requirements, especially in regards to the time commitment. You are asked to complete a mock sales call to another recruiter. I don't believe they will ever accept the offer you are to make but the test is really to see how easily you give up and how persuasive you can be without being pushy. I was told right away that I would be set-up with an interview with the RVP (Regional Vice-President) for the following week. That interview was a little more intensive. He wanted to make sure that I understood what the job entails and make sure that you have the correct personality type for the position. I was nervous that I wasn't going to get the job because he didn't offer to have me shadow any of the current bankers. Apparently, the RVP that I interviewed with just doesn't always have people do that and it didn't mean anything because I received a phone call 2 days later with a verbal offer. The official written offer comes after a full background check has been completed and all of your references have been contacted.

Interview Question – The interviews really weren't that difficult. Most of the questions were pretty standard. The mock sales call was the only aspect that was considerably different than other interviews I've had in the past.   Answer Question
