    I worked at Countrywide Home Loans full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The base pay helped, training in CA was provided, leads via the 800 line, the internet leads, and existing customer data base (PORT Leads) gave everyone an opportunity to help homeowners, either reach their dream of home ownership, or clean up their credit to get them on the road to learning how to handle credit and getting the best home loan they qualified for, and the best rate available, at the time. We were continuously trained on new products and Government guidelines.

    Cons

    Very long hours, pay could have been better but benefits helped to make up for low commissions on some types of loans.

    Advice to Management

    Other companies would benefit using the practices we used in our office. We had our loans down to a 21 turn around time and continuously worked to streamline out loan process...we didn't just stick with the "status quo" we always tried new ways to improve time and customer service.
