    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Dovenmuehle Mortgage (Lake Zurich, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview Process for me took almost half a year, Very slow process, I needed to follow up for very long time. Company has extremely high turn over. I had same questions with same hiring manager with interval of seven months. I did not see any point in it.

    Client Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lake Zurich, IL

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dovenmuehle Mortgage (Lake Zurich, IL).

    Interview

    Applied through job fair with listed referral of current employee. Job fair section was very packed. Basic paperwork was filled out.

    Proceeds to a 1:1 interview with HR person, where they see if you're a fit for the position or if another one suits you better. In my experience, HR didn't know what positions were open and could not explain several of the positions, and even recommended me for a position that did not have an opening.

    Next step is a 1:1 interview with a department rep who looks over your resume and asks generic questions. This step weeded out candidates before meeting with the functional supervisor of the position.

    Once again, very generic questions with no challenges. In hindsight, most of the information given to me was false. Lots of skills are required for the position, none are necessary. If you are able to learn repetitive tasks, you'll succeed.

    After the interview, you are told you'll hear back in a week. I heard back after three weeks with conflicting calls for having been accepted and rejected for the position. Although I gave a start date, HR apparently decided I could start immediately. I received a call from the employee who referred me asking why I didn't "show up to work for my first day," even though I had not received an acceptance notice by then.

    Interview Questions

    • None - very generic questions that you would find in a beginner's guide to interviews, such as "what are you weaknesses?" and "why would you be good for the job?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Chose not to negotiate

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Dovenmuehle Mortgage (Lake Zurich, IL).

    Interview

    The recruiter was very nice. She contacted me and told me about the position, yet i did not have an idea of what the position is until and after I was finished with the interview. There was no position requirements provided to me, i was told as long as you are good at excel you are good to go. Anyways I interviewed by two managers ( i think one was an assistant) and was told that I would be notified within two weeks. Today it has been 3 months and I have not heard back from them. gave many calls to the recruiter and she kept on telling me that she has not heard back from them, or they have not made a decision. I have given up and will never ever work there even if they offer me now. I was told by the manager that they need someone as soon as next week to join the team, and its been three months. seriously they are so slow no wonder their business is going down the drain. I would not recommend this old age home to any one....

    Research Staff Writer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dovenmuehle Mortgage (Lake Zurich, IL) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I attended the job fair which consisted of submitting a packet full of papers that included the application and background check sign offs. Plus, you had to turn in your resume. I sat down with an HR Recruiter, and she suggested I apply for the Research Staff Writer position. I have no background in the mortgage company. However, I have had plenty of customer service experience, and based on what the job entailed, it was basically responding to the customer via email or letters. I interviewed with who I believed was the manager for the department, however I later found was to be an administrative assistant. Plus, I wasn't impressed with her process as she asked me questions while chewing her gum. I answered questions about my background in sales mostly, and she had some behavioral type questions. She proceeded to supply me with two sheets that had scenarios. I had to write a response letter to these scenarios. It took me 15 minutes to complete. I turned them into her, and our interview was complete. Two weeks passed, and I received a letter that expressed that I did not qualify for the position.
