    Loan Officer Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Guild Mortgage (Seattle, WA) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I had one in person interview. The process lasted about an hour, I felt very confident with the atmosphere, my working knowledge as well me being a great fit overall.

    The interview began with the branch manager, immediately proceeded by an interview with the senior loan officer. They came in separately, made the interview very relaxed and casual which I really enjoyed. I was turned down from an email the following day.

    In the senior MLOs words, I was not selected because I had a federal NMLS license and he wanted/expected me to have the state NMLS license. I received a letter from NMLS recently explaining I have 120 days to convert while having the ability to quote Guilds rates and still maintain compliant while switching licenses. The disconnect I have is the state license is 20 hours of a course followed by a test, which I have in depth knowledge of. Why would a company ask me to commit 5 years to a role, but reject me of an offer because of a 20 course needed within 4 months? Guilds impatience with this makes me hesitant to recommend them to anyone I know. In my opinion that’s either Guild beading around the bush about why they didn’t hire me, or an MLO who doesn’t have patience of the process.
