    I have been working at Summit Funding full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at Summit Funding since 2002. I was told during my interview that I would have room to learn, grow and advance. A lot of companies say this during the interview process, but don't really mean it. This is what Summit Funding is about; education, growth and advancement. I have been able to explore both the operations side of the mortgage industry and the sales side and have fallen in love with the sales side. I truly enjoy coming to work everyday, not only because of the positive and fun learning environment, but also because of my co-workers. Summit Funding is a great place to work, I'll be her until I retire, if they'll have me.

    Cons

    Stress of the mortgage industry is always a factor, but not really a negative against Summit Funding.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and keep recognizing employees individually in the branches.

    Accounts Receivable Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Summit Funding (Sacramento, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Short 30 minute interview asked a few questions very basic. Literally came in and got an offer the next day. I imagine an interview for a loan officer is much more difficult since I hear the lo's are paid much better than the other non income generating employees like accountants.
