Our people are the secret to United Shore’s success. That’s why we invest in them with continuous and real-time training, so they can continue to set the standard.


Some call it customer service. We call it Younited to Wow. It means making sure every interaction is meaningful, magical and memorable.


Our long-term reputation is more important than short-term gains. We place a premium on creating lasting relationships above all else.


If something doesn’t go as planned, we don’t play the blame game. We own it. Improve it. And learn from it.


If you’re not moving forward, you’re standing still. We continuously invest in our people, introduce new technology and innovate solutions.


We are big believers that work can (and should) be fun. It’s about finding your passion and purpose – but always leaving time to play.

    I have been working at United Shore full-time (More than 3 years)


    I absolutely love going to work every single day. I’ve worked at other Big Box Lenders. And the culture we have at UWM is incomparable. Where do I start? Our Amazing team is like family. Our Leadership truly cares for everyone. We are like family away from family. No matter who you are our CEO will walk up to you and address you by your name. I still have no clues how he knows everyone’s name.
    Open communication, Leadership has an open door policy to address any concerns, concerns are also addressed right away not down the road.
    Life changing compensation, Best place to work in Michigan for sure! There’s always something new and fresh. Nothing is allowed to get dull.


    If I had to find something it’s too many meetings for Sales team. Monday’s are the worst due only to I can’t get on the phones to assist clients until 11:45 or 12 noon. This should be looked at and changed ASAP. All Sales Leaders feel the same. With all of our technology we could get the same messages to the team via Goto meetings or conf calls.

    Advice to Management

    You’re doing a Great job overall. Nothing is ever perfect but we are almost there. Let’s just fix a few loose ends and onward to #1 4 yrs in a row! #50B!

    Had a current employee send in my resume. After it was turned in, a phone interview was scheduled within a week. Following that, an in person interview was set up for after the weekend. Overall took 2 weeks. Was not sent an offer until after my background check was cleared.
