    This is the best company to work for. Management cares about their employees but you have to work hard.

    I have been working at America's InfoMart full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Most of the Managers, Supervisors, and Team Leads have been promoted from within. There is a lot of opportunity for those that want to build a career. The pay is good but you have to be dedicated.

    Cons

    This is a fast pace office and you need to continually invest in learning about the industry. Processes change from all of the compliance. If you get caught up in becoming friends that are the "gossipy type", it can derail you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some people do not care about a career and spend too much time complaining. It is frustrating because the CEO and President have an open door policy, but some of the people would rather complain instead of find solutions. These type of people need to leave and stop jeopardizing everyone's job.

    I worked at America's InfoMart

    Pros

    Location is close, and you can be in management with a GED

    Cons

    everything. This company is horrible. CEO lives with President-good luck getting along with both. President loves to talk about himself all day long while owner looks for people to fire. Company turns entire staff over yearly. Outside of owner...president been there 1.5 years, SVP 3 weeks, CIO 2 months, and Director for 2 years although she did work there previously before quitting for massage school. This company has no longevity. Over 40 people fired or quit this year and the office is under 60 employees. Do the math. Find a different company and stay away from this hell hole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company to someone who can run a business.

    Pros

    Opportunity for those that have initiative. You may not get paid more and you may work ridiculous hours but if you are looking to gain some hard earned experience, you can step forward and get it here and add a title to your resume before you move on.

    Cons

    All stick and very little carrots. No respect for work/life balance, particularly for managers. Don't work here if you need to always tell the truth and do the right thing. What they do is not necessary illegal but you may be playing around in lots of dark gray areas.

    I hope things have improved in the last couple of years, the owner is out of their depth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's a way to be firm but positive. CEO stands for Chief Encouragement Officer. A few "At-a-boys" costs nothing.

    I have been working at America's InfoMart full-time

    Pros

    As long as you come to work everyday wanting to work and learn more, you can be successful. They pay fairly well especially since I do not have a degree, it would be difficult to find a job that pays decently.

    Cons

    A number of the coworkers. Don't get me wrong most are amazing people, but there are quite a few here who believe their the best thing since sliced bread. They don't follow instructions, they spend more time socializing than actually working and just gripe about any little thing. If you want to work for a company, then do the work, follow the instructions and own up to your mistakes, if you can do that you will do fine at aim. Some of the work can be tedious or time consuming, but they try to make working here fun. The biggest problem they face is only being able to find a handful of good employees in the high numbers of trash that comes through the doors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management I would say just needs to communicate a little more across departments and hire smarter.

    AIM Your Way, America's InfoMart, High Stress - Underpaid

    I worked at America's InfoMart full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You get a firsthand look at the mortgage industry and meet some incredible co-workers.

    The employees of AIM Your Way, Americas InfoMart are an incredible group of people. They're friendly, hard working individuals that are underpaid and have the company on their shoulders daily. You will not find a better set of coworkers to be around.

    Cons

    Where to begin...

    1) You get a firsthand look at how NOT to run a functioning company.
    The CEO claims that everyone is part of a large "family" and her door is always open (which is closed 99.99% of the time). The CEO has no clue how to run a functioning company, yes the company has been in business for numerous years but its the support staff or oh wait the "line staff" that keeps the company running. The new President only cares about himself and has no concept of reality versus fantasy. When the President and CEO are on vacation (which is quite frequently) the office runs smoothly and is a very low-stress environment. When they're present, its the complete opposite.

    2) PTO/Vacation/Sick - If you want to be out, sorry!
    The company has a very limited sick/personal time off policy. The accrual rate is so incredibly slow, after being at the company 1 (ONE) entire year you will be honored with a total of 40 hours to take and enjoy! But if you get sick through the year, I'm sorry this will be reduced as you get a total of 1 (ONE) week per year and this includes sick days and ICE DAYS! If it ices the company WILL NOT CLOSE DOWN. You as an employee are expected to risk your life on the roads or be "reprimanded" for not coming to the office. The office will never close early, and you will be expected to stay late and work varying hours. If you're hourly don't go over 1 minute past 40 or all sorts of repercussions will follow.

    3) HR / Management
    While I would like to say that management at AIM Your Way, Americas InfoMart is superior and goes the extra mile I cannot. The management team or aka "executive staff" is nothing but puppets on very tightly wound strings. The managers claim to "care about their employees" but all the assigning/production supervisors care about is micromanaging and making live utterly miserable for their employees.

    4) Turnover Rate
    Most employees last less than 1 year, the company would be thrilled to have en employee last more than one day if they could. (A few employees or new hires actually quite before even making it through orientation on day 1 (ONE)). There is no HR at the company nor do they want one, why would the company want someone who would be "for the employees" when the management structure proves otherwise.

    5) Never question the processes of the company
    One huge lesson learned from being an employee at AIM Your Way, Americas InfoMart is to never question policy/procedures. Employees will be terminated faster than you can count. The company does not want anyone questioning how things are done. How time is accrued, personal time off and NEVER discuss compensation/paychecks. I've seen too many employees terminated due to questioning policy/procedures.

    6) Time Card (Here we go....)
    You're not allowed to see your time card/sheet, the CEO/President will not release them. Asking to have them viewed will open a can of worms. Is there something to hide? Are they a secret? Asking for this information will prove havoc on your employment within the company. Fair warning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look and listen to your employees, you walk around thinking or assuming everyone enjoys showing up to work in reality everyone is miserable. Take pride in your employees and not just yourself, after all the employees are what continue your success, without them you'd be back in a garage. The talent that is within the company is very strong, the employees can think for themselves and are not dependent upon you. Management CEO/President should focus more on the employees and less on themselves. We're glad to know you like to travel, that you love sales, play golf, workout but at the end of the day all you do is talk about yourselves. Do you ever stop and wonder how your employees truly are doing? There's a lot of employees scraping to make ends meat, have families, are married, single or divorced and need to work. Unfortunately they'll soon find out that there is other companies who take pride in their employees and their work. I came to the company with high ambitions to be a long-term employee and work from the bottom up within the company. I started low in the company and knew this coming in but I assumed with hard work and due time I would climb the ranks. I was very sad to see the processes and procedures that run this company.

    I have been working at America's InfoMart full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Overtime is very available and the work is relatively easy. Work 8-5 for the most part. Ok benefits which start after 30 days.

    Cons

    They treat their employees like dirt. They have no flexibility at all for time off (especially for the last 5 days of the month) you will never be approved off. High turn over as no one feels respected there by the senior managers. Constantly belittled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want people to care about your clients, you have to care about your employees. The only manager that you ever had that did the right thing you all fired today. Thank goodness I am out of here soon.

    Pros

    You will get an inside look at the mortgage industry and learn a lot about how things work in regards to foreclosures and home inspections.

    Cons

    The company is in a constant state of flux. Day to day you never know what changes will be made to suit which department or manager and makes learning and especially enjoying your job very difficult. There is currently so much focus being placed on gaining new clients that very little is being done to ensure that we can even handle the work load that those new clients will mean.

    I worked at America's InfoMart as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    A lot of the employees at AIM are great. The management is close to the other employees, and they cross-train everyone they can.

    Cons

    The actual work (Quality Control department) is rather boring. Every now and then you'll find an interesting property, but most of it is very same-y. Most of the contractors don't really want to talk to QC, either - we're the ones who call them when they screw up, either by doing the job wrong, or sending in bad pictures. It's a whole different world in the Assigning department - the people who give the contractors the work in the first place.
