Civic Financial Services – Why Work For Us?


Civic Financial Services has a short history, but a well-capitalized pedigree. CIVIC was established in 2014 by its parent companies, Wedgewood Inc. and HMC Assets LLC, to meet the needs of investors that did not fit within traditional lending criteria.

The CIVIC Difference

We are a direct lender, underwrite our own files, and provide our own appraisals which makes our loan process transparent and fast.

Company Benefits

In addition to the unprecedented opportunity to fast-track your career, CIVIC is well-known for offering impressive pay and benefits packages – including full medical, 401K match, employee investment opportunities, and other exciting and unique perks.

Compensation Done Right

Here at CIVIC we do things differently, and our compensation package is no exception. While most lenders refuse to sway from the traditional commission-only platform, we take pride in investing in our people. At Civic Financial Services we provide a base salary for sales positions, in addition to commissions paid and a quarterly performance-based bonus opportunity. At 30 days of employment, employees are eligible for medical, dental and vision coverage, as well as traditional & Roth 401K programs. Oh, and did we mention the other perks like in-house investing programs and our stocked refrigerator?

If it is important to you to be part of a company culture that recognizes and rewards talent and achievement, CIVIC is the place to be.

    Account Executive Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Civic Financial Services (Redondo Beach, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straightforward. I was asked to interview a few days after meeting one of the Sales Directors. The interview consisted of myself, the CEO, and both Sales Directors, and was about an hour in length. It mostly consisted of general questions with a detailed explanation of plans for the organization's planned growth over the coming years. I was given a tour of the full building, including Wedgewood, the parent company, after the interview. I was called the next day and offered a full-time position. Very straightforward and to the point - no games.
