    Great location, open and bright workspace with nice building amenities including subsidized vending machine and state of the art workout facility.
    Management team is staffed by seasoned individuals from various industry leaders that know what they are doing and seem to work well together.
    The recent acquisition should lead to more growth for the company and the employees.


    Company is experiencing some of the usual and expected growing pains as it makes the transition from a single-owner entity into a larger organization.

    Loan Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at


    I sent my resume' to an advert I saw on a website that was looking for mortgage loan originators, despite not having much of a clue what exactly that meant. Shortly thereafter I received a call from HR, spoke for about half an hour, then was asked to come in for an interview. I was given the tour, sales pitch of the company, etc., but then came a curveball: the rest of the interview involved my future manager explaining why people should not take this job. While it turns out that I was actually cut out for the position, any job that spends so much energy explaining why the job is horrible, is probably horrible. This company hires completely inexperienced people, barely trains them, racks up thousands of dollars in debt for licensing, then tosses them in the pool to either sink or swim. Even those who do not sink wind up leaving the company because the inhospitable office space is an excellent cube farm of depression. In summary, the interview was easy because the job is terrible, a job to which no informed person should subject themselves. Avoid this company at all costs, unless you enjoy working with a bunch of crabby, miserable, old people who look as if their lives have already passed them by.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview played out more like a conversation than an interview. In fact, I really just spoke with HR and my manager for about an hour respectively, then was offered a position.   Answer Question


    At the time it seemed too easy. In hindsight, there was a reason for the ease of the interviewing process.

    No Longer a Niche, Consumer-Direct Lenders Lead Mortgage Innovation

    It wasn't long ago that the consumer-direct mortgage channel was a novelty catering to a niche segment of technology aficionados and refinance borrowers. But as consumers have increasingly embraced all manners of electronic commerce, these online lenders have seized on growing expectations for a digitally-focused and interactive experience to firmly establish their place in the industry.
