Our Benefits

Paramount Equity understands that our team members need flexible benefits to satisfy a multitude of life circumstances. We design our benefits packages to ensure that our families are well cared for and receive the resources that they desire.

Financial Benefits

Today, individual financial security is as important as it’s ever been. Paramount Equity provides our employees with a comprehensive set of tools to take charge of their financial futures and realize their dreams. Competitive salaries, 401K plans, and our Families Helping Families Program create financial security for today and into the future.

Health Benefits

We believe that meeting our team members’ health needs with quality insurance benefits is critical.. As such, we make health care one of our top priorities. Paramount Equity provides our employees and their families with a health care package that includes Medical, Dental, and Vision Insurance Plan options for employees and their families.

Life Insurance & Disability Benefits

Peace of mind—knowing that you and your loved ones will be taken care of even under unfortunate circumstances—is priceless and Paramount Equity grants this peace of mind through Voluntary Term Life Insurance. Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance Plans are also available.

Paid Time Off Benefits

As much as we strive to reach new levels of excellence, we recognize that time to celebrate and enjoy the fruits of your labor is also part of real success. Paramount Equity offers flexibility with regard to time off. We work very hard but we also appreciate the importance of time taking time off to play.

Volunteer Time Off

Paramount Equity Mortgage recognizes it is our responsibility as a good corporate citizen to help enrich our surrounding communities of residence and work. We encourage our employees to become involved in their communities, lending their voluntary support to programs that positively impact the quality of life within these communities. The Volunteer Time Off Policy allows employees to take up to 5 hours of time each calendar quarter to participate in their chosen volunteer program. Unused hours may accumulate from one quarter to the next but may not be carried over into the new year.

Other Benefits

There are several benefits Paramount Equity team members enjoy. These additional benefits include a Voluntary Long-Term Disability Insurance Plan, Aflac Supplemental Insurance Plans, Flexible Spending Accounts for Medical and Dependent Care (Cafeteria Plan / Section 125), and Section 529 College Savings Plans. These extras complete a well-rounded benefits package to attract and retain the best talent in our industry.

Families Helping Families

Families Helping Families Benefit, change the text to this:  In an effort to support Paramount Equity’s position as the Employer of Choice for our industries, we strive to offer creative ways to support and reward our team.  We’re excited to introduce a new opportunity to build our family of coworkers and create greater wealth for each team member with the Families Helping Families program


Our team is committed to making a difference in the lives of our employees, customers, and local communities. We strive to save our neighbors money in as many ways as possible. We also encourage volunteer work with our “Power of One” program, which provides employees with an additional 20 hours each year in paid time off to volunteer. We’ve been honored to support many charitable organizations including Habitat for Humanity, Cure Breast Cancer Inc., Make a Wish, Salvation Army, Volunteers of America, and others. We were very fortunate to raise the money to build a school in Mali, Africa, in partnership with buildOn. Giving back is a critical thread in our common vision.



We believe in acknowledging great performances with celebration.  Our “All-Star” sales team members have enjoyed trips to Barcelona, Tahiti, the Grand Caymans, Costa Rica, and more.  We’ve promoted many employees multiple times in our effort to provide growth opportunities for all who are ready for advancement.  Our annual “PEMMY Awards” show is designed to thank the best in each department for their contribution.  No department is left behind in our excitement to celebrate individual and team achievements.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Paramount Equity.


    I was informed about the position from a college friend and current loan officer at the company. We started with a phone interview from my future sales manager, then proceeded to what was supposed to be the first of two in person interviews. First interview went well and they called a few days later letting me know a second wouldn't be necessary and I had the job. It was very professional and prompt throughout.

    Interview Questions

    • The process was pretty straightforward, so I didn't detect many trick questions that aren't already par for the course in any interview. My best advice is at the end (and this goes for any interview), ask "where do we go from here?" That's never failed to get me a job.   Answer Question
