    Pros

    Laid back environment, they don't micro-manage, and working hard does not go unnoticed. We are constantly being told that we are appreciated, and that does not happen at many companies, especially large, and corporate. Flexible schedules if things come up, since they value family and your own personal well-being more than the job.
    Accrual for vacation starts right when you start, and you only have to wait 90 days to start using it, instead of a year, like most places. They also just changed their policy so you don't need to be full-time for a year before getting holidays paid off.

    Cons

    I wish they had a matching 401k, and even though their benefits are slightly better than before, it's still cheaper for me to pay for health insurance personally.

    Advice to Management

    I have none. For me personally, there's not much I would change.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Gold Star Mortgage (Ann Arbor, MI).

    Interview

    I had one brief, easy phone interview with the recruiter. Then came in a few days later for an in-person interview. The interview was with the recruiter, as well as with a manager. They were both extremely easy-going and friendly. The interview itself was very easy, I was anticipating having a second in-person interview, but they offered me the job on the spot.

    Interview Questions

    • There were honestly zero difficult or unexpected questions.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. They offered a $25,000 base salary (which the company got rid of after I was there a few weeks), and a commission structure.
