    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CityWorth Mortgage (Fairfax, VA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    First it started with a phone screening then after getting there you are given a tour. After that there are two rounds of interviews and basic questions about your personality and self-assessment. Office was open floor so you are basically interviewing in the middle of the action.

    Interview Questions

    • Two positive qualities, two negative qualities, mostly the typical interview questions with a focus on drive and motivation.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at CityWorth Mortgage in September 2017.

    Interview

    Had a phone screening with one of the recruiters pretty much telling you about the company. Then was asked to come in for an interview. So I come to the interview and mind you I live in New York, so not a short commute. The recruiter met me in the front of what seemed to be an overwhelming, adult Chuck-E-Cheese-esque work space. Everyone is dressed in shorts, people skateboarding around, not professional at all. I was then brought into a room by a recruiter and she asked me for ratings of myself in certain characteristics, and too three strengths and weaknesses. Then she passed the piece of paper with my self evaluations onto a manager. He was an old time mortgage banker, and seemed extremely arrogant and old-school. Asked me why I rated myself a 9 for one trait then explained what the company did - which in short is subprime lending, and they say they don’t do predatory lending, but it’s pretty obvious to someone who knows anything about mortgages. Anyway I went in with very high expectations, and left with a much lower outlook of the company. I then followed up with an email thanking them for the interview, then a week later asking if there was any progress and the recruiter had promised me to be in contact. Heard nothing back, very unprofessional for a new mortgage company like this. Don’t waste your time!

    I walked in and had to awkwardly wait for some one to come and grab me. No reception office and disorganized environment. The questions were easy and the interviewers were encouraging.
