Company reviews
"Favoritism runs this place"
Former EmployeeOriginations Rep
If you are a managers favorite you can get away with doing nothing. It doesn’t matter how good you are at your job or how much work you do, they will always pick favorites. Managers there do whatever they can to get out of working. Any good manager there has left to other jobs. They make you feel guilty for bathroom breaks. They do not do holiday or bereavement pay. They boast about their PTO but it is actually awful.

"Run for your Life"
Former EmployeeCustomer Support Representative
4wks of training to learn that on graduation day they pull you and start terminating a bunch saying it’s cause you failed one compliance test! Biggest mistake ever working here just to be fired for no reason. Got trained then got fired! You tell me how stupid that is

"I definitely think they should pay more for the work we do."
Current EmployeeLoan Specialist
Keep in mind, starting pay is pretty set and thats only for originations, not servicing. They are going to try to get me service trained within the next couple of weeks and I would be doing the jobs of 5 people, its just not worth the money. I am leaving and going somewhere that pays $4 more an hour not including differential pay on weekends. The people are great, but the job isnt worth the money.

"If it's too good to be true, it is. "
Former EmployeeSpecialist
Worst place to work for EVER. They make it sound like you can move up, but instead, they use you for all they can get out of you without having to promote (meaning pay you more). It is so much fun being a grown adult and having your freaking bathroom breaks scheduled for you, especially after having children. The scrutiny over stupid phone calls is over the top ridiculous. Warning: This job can send you into a spiral of depression!!!
