    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Sun West Mortgage.

    Interview Details

    When I first interviewed for this position, my interviewer was very loud and rude, telling me right away that he did not appreciate my talking with other candidates beforehand about what this position might be like. He was on the other side of the building, so I guess that this have been a deliberate "stress interview" to simulate how I would react and respond to very high-stress situations, which is a large part of the job. Every time I answered his questions calmly and diplomatically, he interrupted me saying that's what every candidate says and that I wasn't telling him the truth. I do not understand why my interviewer was so rude and crass, but when I finally was hired, he was no longer with the company.

    no technique questions, interview process is not fast, around 15 mins. You will get no answer about your interview. No one care about you. Maybe they select candidates randomly. I hope I will never go through such interview anymore.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Sun West Mortgage.

    Interview Details

    Horrible from the very beginning. Applied for a position as a Loan Funder and brought in to interview for the position...drove to Cerritos and, not even 5 minutes into the interview, the interviewer, Tony, said he didn't think I had enough current experience for the position. Tony then went on to say I should interview for an Account Executive position for which he sent me out to Corona to interview for the position later in the day. Met with Anthony in Corona office whom, not even 5 minutes later said I'd be a better fit as a Loan Funder and that he'd tell Tony to bring me onboard as such. He then advised me to call Tony the next business day. At the end of the day, I was offered a low paying position as a Funding Assistant despite 15 years in the business. I needed a job so I took it.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Sun West Mortgage in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter was nice, but interviewer was Rude and it was obvious we are just a "prospect" and nothing more. In and out in a jiffy. It was uncomfortable and there was no sense of personality or care from the individuals. They have a huge over turn in employees as they hire and fire constantly and so there is a person being interviewed every 15 min all day long.
