    I worked at HomeStreet full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Growing organization taking a family owned bank that has been in the area for a long time into the future to remain current and attractive to local and west coast customers. Decent benefit package, competitive pay for industry, flexible schedules when needed. My management team were the best career mentors I have had to date. A majority of the people I worked with internally and externally were amazing, hard working, passionate, caring people who valued being on a team and meeting goals together.

    Cons

    Some of the executives or key business managers that have been there for some time are disengaged or have a hard time keeping the values/processes that existed for years and slightly improving them or removing them for the greater good of the bank and the customers with out taking suggested change personally.

    Advice to Management

    Outside of IT: Suggestions are not implications that the job done to date has been bad. Suggestions for improvement should be encouraged so that innovation is a value that is respected. That is what will help the bank stay around for years to come.
    Inside of IT: The review process and mentoring relationship was extremely beneficial, continue that!

    Mortgage Loan Officer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at HomeStreet (Vancouver, WA).

    Interview

    The interview process was the least professional process I've ever been through. I was taken into the break room with the hiring manager and three other loan processors. I'm fine with panel interviews, but this was more like the supervisor needing his employees to feel me out, and help support him as they kept prompting him to ask questions. It was hard to take them seriously when we're sitting in a freezing break room, filled with food smells, and salt and pepper sitting on the table.
