    Pros

    ThIs seems to b a secure job finance compared to other company's. The people I work with are ver nice and I enjoy going to work.

    Cons

    Management oppporunity seems to be limited but that is expected in today's job market. Overload of work in the last year because of staffing problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I suggest spending mOre time at the office to become more productive. As business continues to increase more and more help is needed.

    Pros

    Got insurance license and some experience closing loans. Looked better on a resume than it actually was. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Primary duties include phone solicitation which is tedious and hard on morale. Felt bad leading people money at 24.99%.

    Pros

    Good training program for new employees. They treat thier employees well and provide good benefits with a normal schedule. If you are in a good branch it can be fun as you get to know the few employees that work in your branch, good fun environment.

    Cons

    The pay is not what it could be for the work that you do. You are required to sell, collect, process and manage files. This provides lots of oppurtunity to learn but also a good amount of work to be done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward the employees if they make the company money as you don't pay much over the base salary, which can start pretty low.

    Pros

    Fairly good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Need to be able to sell, even when it's not in the customer's best interest. They are only focused on loan and insurance production, and not in any other aspect of the job. The best employees were the ones that kept the branch running, not the ones that tried to sneak an endless stream of bad loans past the underwriters (and there are a lot of them -- they often end up getting promoted!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay open minded to the possibility that a branch needs more than just loans, it needs GOOD loans. A bunch of bad loans just adds the delinquency, and diminishes the employees ability to generate more GOOD loans.
