    I have been working at Guild Mortgage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, very supportive environment, super flexible for family needs and no gender bias that I've seen

    Cons

    Admin roles (processors, transaction coordinators, loan office assistants and marketing coordinators) are paid hourly and seasoned professionals make the same as the newbies. Loan officers and nice but tend to have an air of superiority they give off. Online training is a joke, but it's a great team atmosphere and everyone is alway willing to help out.

    Advice to Management

    Pay those who contribute to the loan but don't get bonuses more or they will leave.

    Business Development Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Guild Mortgage (Eagle, ID) in August 2017.

    Interview

    You start by a phone interview with a 3rd party consulting firm that then decides if they should pass on your resume to the actual hiring manager. From there you have an in person interview, if the manager likes what they see on your resume. It is not the fastest process but it is efficient. They know what they are looking for and will only accept that.
