Company reviews
"Decent company"
Current EmployeeCloser
Decent company to get into the mortgage industry, the base pay could be better when comparing it to the average market. The commission structure needs to improve due to many homes being delayed.

"Management "
Former EmployeeCustomer Service Representative
Too many bosses in every dept. HR knew that a male manager was toxic to the dept, but did nothing about him. Very busy work environment and short staffed

"Its Okay"
Current EmployeeClosing
Work is enjoyable for the most part. Management needs to adjust timeline expectations, especially during peek months. Also needs to address/regulate work/life balance to avoid burn out.

"Over worked and underpaid. "
Former EmployeeLoan Processor
Nothing. Management is poor and will over work you and will not pay you overtime. You can work till midnight for free and it will never be good enough for them! Do yourself a favor and don't bother applying or working at this company. They only see what you do wrong and you will never receive praises for all the hard work you do.
