I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Guaranteed Rate (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.
A recruiter called me for a phone screen. After the initial phone screen I was scheduled for an in person interview with the VP of Mortgage Lending ( a title they appear to be handing out left and right to loan processors). The first VP I interviewed with was 20 minutes late because he was taking a CrossFit class, I was disappointed with his lack of professionalism. I did not get the job and was scheduled to meet with another VP for a similar role. This interview was unethical and possibly illegal. The VP had the audacity to ask me how many sick days I took last year. Upon further research, I found out that it's a illegal to ask applicants that question. He also asked if I would be willing to work overtime (I understand that the mortgage industry is a fast paced industry, but I have no desire to work over 12+ hours a day for a company that probably has a VERY HIGH turnover rate).This VP also had me take a personality test which he "graded" on the spot. I did not get this position, but was not even notified that he chose to go with another candidate. Instead, the recruiting coordinator scheduled me for another interview with a different VP. At this point, I decided to accept an offer from another company.
