    I have been working at Reliance First Capital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    After my three years working for Reliance I have realized that I have never worked for a company that treats employees so exceptionally well. The energy in the office is amazing. The benefits are top notch. The work life balance gives you the ability to make a great living and actually enjoy it. The pay structure is the most lucrative I know of. The managers are very knowledgeable and will help you excel and reach your full potential.

    Cons

    I wouldn't change a thing.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits training and support. Management definitely leads by example (do as I do not do as I say). You 100% control how much you earn.

    Cons

    Success is up to the individual, if there are any cons they will definitely be internal some thing to overcome mentally.

    Advice to Management

    Best management Team I've had the pleasure of working for.

    I have been working at Reliance First Capital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been working at reliance First Capital for almost 3 years now. I love coming to work everyday. They will train you, guide you, believe in you and help you be successful. They truly invest in their employees and you get trained by the best in the industry. The mangers are human and they understand that you have a family too. Being a working woman I can balance my work life and family life well because I know that my company cares. Very competitive compensation. You get rewarded for doing the work you are supposed to do. From CEO to the branch manager every body will work with you help you grow and succeed.

    Cons

    After working with Reliance for almost 3 years I cannot think of anything negative.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you so much for making us feel valued.

    I have been working at Reliance First Capital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    First off, the people. I love who I work with, especially my branch manager. I come in and they bring the energy, even if you don't have it yet. They want you to succeed, but only if you are willing to work for it. Secondly, they really train you and prepare you for the job. The trainers don't hesitate to let you know that it can be a grind on some days, and smooth sailing on others.

    Cons

    Commission and draw, although a really strong comp plan for the sales you make. They aren't the best at marketing, but that is about to change I believe. The health benefits are okay, but could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more flexible on the schedule, and get rid of mandatory Saturdays.

    Pros

    This company becomes like family. Very tight knit teams, with very fun environment and tons of support to help you grow.

    Cons

    This is not for someone who does not have the desire to self motivate/work hard

    Advice to Management

    Separate teams further apart

    I have been working at Reliance First Capital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    First pro unquestionably is the income; our pay structure compensates very handsomely, but you must WORK. Pair this with a great atmosphere, numerous and exclusive products, and camaraderie this is the place to be if you are a mortgage loan originator.

    Cons

    There is a certain culture and expectation at Reliance, which is lucrative to those who follow the system how it is meant to be, but can be stressful and overwhelming for the faint of heart. This may not be expressed as clearly as it needs to be. New hires need to understand that adversity, the word "no", and days with no production are natural occurrences in sales.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure new hires understand this job is no picnic, and it will take devotion inside and outside of work to hone in on mastering the craft of sales.

    I have been working at Reliance First Capital full-time

    Pros

    They are committed to the process of getting you licensed if you do not have one. Most companies will hire you, but request that you go pay for your own training course and licensing and then come back once you are certified to be a MLO. They provided hands on training in class with an amazing trainer, as well as online course they paid for. They pay you to learn and develop your skills. Good flexibility with scheduling if needed. They have already had 3 big contest since I have been here and I am on my 3rd month almost. Great company thus far

    Cons

    I would only say that like any sales job, you have to put in more than your required 40 in order to be successful seems like. If you are a person that has to be on a set 40 and have little room for taking work home, talking on your cell when you are gone or staying late a few times, probably not the job that you would make a ton of money doing.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to uplift, build and coach your team
