    I have been working at Guaranteed Rate full-time (more than 3 years)


    The biggest pro is the large group of like-minded, hard-working individuals that make up the company. Having a solid group of peers makes coming to work enjoyable. There is great technology at this company. The business thrives on it. Loan Officers especially have an advantage with it all. There is an extraordinary wealth of resources that are available within an internal site and a support center. These two things are invaluable and really help to advance the knowledge of the employee base as a whole. No matter what position you have, you can further your knowledge with this site or with the incredible training department. It’s a great way to make progress in your own career.


    Benefits are incredibly expensive. A number of options, but even the poorest coverage will dent your paycheck. I also think the 401k match is low for a company of this size. If you are not at the corporate office or within the Chicago area, the support can also seem lacking. A major disconnect from company culture that way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that regional support is clarified and strongly built up to fit the same standards as corporate/Chicago area. Try to find a way to improve benefits packages or company contribution.

    Positive Outlook

    Interview Details

    first point of contact was email, then the interview in person. During the interview one of the interviewers was on their phone the entire time. kept asking the same questions repeatedly and did not pay very much attention. the whole process was not very professional.
