    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cardinal Financial Company.

    Interview

    Very unorganized, bounced around to different people that all had different things to say about the position. There seemed to be a lack of organized training for new associates. Just throw them in and sink or swim.

    Mortgage Loan Officer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cardinal Financial Company (Chandler, AZ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Met with a few of the upper management for the interview. I was asked to take a quick aptitude test before the interview. Unfortunately the usual station wasn't working so I had to use a persons computer that was at lunch, which meant that I was in a loud environment. Nevertheless, it went fine and I proceeded to meet with the VP.

    The interview went well and it seemed like it could be a good fit, but the company was in the middle of changing locations a week after my interview. I met with three different people, all of which seemed to think it would be a great fit. I sat with one of their best performers to get a feel for what the job would entail. Everything seemed pretty good and I thought it could be a good fit.

    There were a few things that I could see as potential issues for some people. The first concern a person may have is the length of time it takes to start earning money. Between the licensing process and training they told me to brace for about six months with little income. That could be an issue for some people, but it wasn't for me since I am accustomed to commission only positions. The second challenge I could see at some point down the road is rising interest rates. Over the course of the last few decades rates have mainly gone in one direction. That is great for a company like this because they explained to me that the majority of their business is from refinancing. I still feel that is something a good performer can overcomer. The one thing I didn't feel good about is the fact that I was told that during a temporary rate rise, the pay scale was changed for the salespeople. I find it hard to plot out a career in which your money can change due to minor rate rises. I expect that your income can change based on economic circumstances, however, changing pay scales have not been good in my sales experience.

    Other than the one concern about the changing pay scale, I could see this being a very good career for a hungry and competent sales person. All three of the gentlemen I met with thought that I would "kill it," in a good way, and wanted to get me back in to start sitting with someone and get the licensing process started. They told me they would call me in the next few days when they had a better idea of when the move was going to be completed. I never heard back from them after that. I'm not sure if they had changes or if they just decided to go another direction. I haven't been in an interview in which I was told so many times how good they think I would do at this business without hearing back from someone. I believe something fell through the cracks during the move, but maybe they found someone they felt was a better fit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cardinal Financial Company (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2017.

    Interview

    1 on 1 phone interview was the most down conversation I’ve ever had with a recruiter. None of that hogwash corporatey feel. It was raw. And then we rolled into what I was looking for abc what my history was. Travis is the man!

    Then I waited for the in house interview. They do a wanderlic test before the interview Longest one I’ve had but then we proceeded into shadowing and I got an offer within a week because some people were on vacation. Great people great atmosphere excellent pay structure
