    Pros

    They give a nice amount of vacation, optional and personal days plus sick days

    Cons

    Managers are all nasty and demeaning to their team, they are unfriendly blunt and caddy . You must have worked at their previous company in order to get anywhere here. Clicky

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff nicely there are plenty of great workers there. You could see how in each department they live in fear as their manager comes in. A very uneasy feeling

    I worked at Reliance First Capital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The top managers are wonderful. Free lunch or breakfast sometimes. Great coworkers. Good location!

    Cons

    Middle management is impatient and dismissive. It's a total boys club so ladies be prepared to learn how to talk like a man. Environment is fun but working conditions are hostile with middle management. Training is for the test and not for the actual job.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know

    I worked at Reliance First Capital full-time

    Pros

    -Potential for MASSIVE commissions
    -Tight-knit culture
    -Baptism by fire (if you can succeed here, you are a hell of a salesman/saleslady and have the potential to do very well in any sales role)
    *The bottom line here is that if you need to make a lot of cash in the next year and you have the drive to succeed and don't mind selling a slightly inferior financial product, you can make great money. It's a great entry level opportunity into sales.

    Cons

    -Pricing on rates & costs is not bad but it's definitely not good compared to competitors you'll be up against (which is why you'll talk about how rate is irrelevant in your daily role play with your team)
    -Looney bin (tight-knit culture but the place is nuts)

    Advice to Management

    You guys are awesome, the business model of super high commissions vs. pricing that is good but generally not quite as good as the competition's, plus the nature of online mortgages and underwriting being a mess just makes this a tough gig long-term (any one sales role can be).

    Pros

    You get to help others while helping yourself. The income potential is high, and their process works for those who are willing and able to follow it.

    Cons

    You will have to make a very large number of calls daily, and have to be able to deal with rejection on a very normal basis

    Pros

    Great pay structure, very caring management team, amazing CEO, Company trips, wonderful coworkers, a fun place to be. We work hard and we play hard. I fully expect to be with Reliance until I am retired

    Cons

    Honestly, there are no cons. Maybe get an extra coffee machine, LOL

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. I came into this industry with absolutely no experience. I've been very successful because of the tools that I was given, the training received, and the support around me. Continue that with the future generations of people

    An awesome work environment. They give you all the tools and resources to be successful and earn a great living. The training is non-stop and it needs to be for continued greatness.

    Look, it's a job. Most of us need one. Love what you do and do what you love. If this isn't it, so be it. Move on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. It works. It's proven. Not much can be disputed when you look at the success or the office

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

    Pros

    Reliance First Capital is a great place to work. The harder you work, the more money you make. No, you cannot just sit around get paid. This is a commission based job. The leaders in the office are here to help and push you to become better. When you work hard you receive great rewards. Not only do you get a big paycheck, you get a glass award that tells that months accomplishments but, you can also win week long vacations for two people. You can win the vacations your first year. Everyone here is family - if you dont have the will to work, dont waste your time.

    Cons

    The hours are mostly in the middle of the day to later evening (9a-6p or 10a -7p). I would prefer get here at 7am and leave by 4pm. But the business is to talk to customers when they are available. and you have to work 1 Saturday a month. Its for 4 hours.
