I have been working at Provident Funding full-time (More than 10 years)
This business is clearly not for everyone based on some of the other reviews, lot of people started with the company right out of school, and some people find its not what they wanted to do. For those that want to build a career in the mortgage business its a great place to work. It is a company where you get out what you put in. Hard work and accomplishments are rewarded. You do have to take some initiative to get ahead, but if you communicate your goals they will help you reach them and promotions are based on merit not seniority. The company is very loyal to its employees, never having made a mass layoff despite the market is unheard of for mortgage companies. You receive a performance evaluation every year and get the opportunity for a pay increase annually based on performance. Multiple offices with opportunity to transfer to new location if you want to move. Company has improved significantly over past several years in listening to its employees, and making changes for the better to how it operates. Large discount is offered to employees who want to get a loan as a benefit, allows you to get very good mortgage rate. Overall a great place to work and a very stable company.
Employee experience can vary some depending on which department you work within. Most entry level roles involve high levels of direct customer interaction. No matter what role you are in, you will have to work hard, and hard work is not for everyone.
Advice to Management
Better retirement benefit options
There is a short phone interview about yourself and your education before a sit down interview. If your sit down interview goes well, they offer a second sit down interview. Interview questions are easy.
