I interviewed at Quicken Loans in September 2013.
Interview Details – Applied online, recruiter called, in person interview with mock sales call, second interview. Was able to shadow 2 times within different departments in order to get a better grasp of the job. Looks like long hours and was told most stressful thing will be working the hours so job is not for everyone.
Interview Question – Perform mock sales call Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Quicken Loans in September 2013.
Interview Details – I filled out a 2 minute questionnaire on LinkedIn and was called the next day by a recruiter. I was told about the long hours but this was followed by stating that the average mortgage banker makes 60k+ in their first year on the job with quicken. So, foolishly, I agreed to have a second call/phone interview. This time, I was somewhat grilled about being able to devote 12+ hours per day on a six day work week. This all sounds fine until you realize that QL doesn't pay time and a half for overtime. They pay "half-time" (yes, they've been sued for it but they beat the case). Outside of that, my recruiter used the word "persuade" AT LEAST 7 times when describing my day-to-day at the company. Essentially, you'll try to defend why QL charges a premium on services that are much less elsewhere (the tactics you use will be up to your discretion). I was then invited to come in for an interview. After a bit of small talk from the recruiter, we took the elevator up to the main work floor. When I strolled past the employees there I didn't see ONE smile. I didn't see anything other than stress and borderline depression in their eyes. We then began and the basic interview questions were asked. I was then asked if I had any questions for my interviewer. I know that QL was ranked No 1 in the nation as the best place to work, but that's for IT jobs (not mortgage banking). With this in the back of my head, I asked her about worker morale. She then began to regurgitate that "QL is No 1..." yada yada as though that article and ranking had anything to do with the position for which I was brought in to bid. At that point I mentally checked out of the interview because of her being incredulous with a simple question and basically answering it without answering. I didn't ask any other questions and was given a presentation for Quizzle to do a mock sale call. She said before the presentation was given that this would be what I'd be doing for 12+ hours per day. No matter how they try to dress it up, you'll be cold call selling for 70 hours every week with constant "coaching" (pressure by management). I did the phone call halfheartedly and wanted to wrap it up as quickly as possible. I was told that I'd be contacted in 48 hours but then said that this wasn't worth my quitting my current job for and thanked the recruiter for her time.
Interview Question – Explain a time when you had to persuade someone to do something that they were reluctant to at first. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – The horror stories on glassdoor were all true and I saw it with my own eyes. I'm not going into a cold call sales career opportunity where I'll be stressed daily and end up quitting after a few weeks/months.

Interview Details – I have had the first initial interview with the recruiter at the main office in Detroit. (I am in CA). It was fairly brief (15 min) phone conversation. Asking if I knew about the company and if I had any questions. Asked me to tell about myself which I explained my background in Appraisal. Typical what was your greatest challenge and how did you overcome.
Interview Question – I stepped out of appraising for about 4 years due to the economy and fee appraising is not without many costs and in this new arena with Appraisal Management Companies the appraiser is not always compensated well.
