    I have been working at Veterans United Home Loans full-time (More than a year)


    Values are taken seriously, fun place to work, feels like company really cares about employees' well being


    Insurance is quite expensive if insuring more than yourself, no tuition reimbursement if attending school, can feel "pigeon holed" in one position or department.

    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Veterans United Home Loans (Columbia, MO) in April 2014.


    Very casual. They want to get to know who YOU are. They are hiring a person, not a resume. Be yourself, be positive and be honest. Know the values before you interview.
