Mind you, working in a loan production center is high volume and stress is a given and to be expected. Having to work 60 hours a week and having to work most weekends is asking too much of anyone. I'm an extremely hard worker with a good work ethic, so I don't mind hard work. It's the lack of hiring and constant pressure with too few employees that is causing the problem. You just never get a break! Christmas last year was completely ruined after being so stressed out because of closing all stacking one on top of the other, all with major issues.
Thought there would be a lull in 2016, nope. This whole year has been stack the loans on, keep hiring more sales people, but never ramp up your back office. I get that many companies are cutting back and expecting more, but you burn people out when you have them doing the job a 3 people. Quality of life is so much more important than money. I've been doing this job for a long time and have NEVER had an employer expect so much out of their employees. Management needs to get real or their good experienced people are going to start dropping like flies. People have choices. I choose to not be stressed out of my mind 24/7, or be a heart attack or stroke victim, so this fly is out.
Nice coworkers, pays well
Way too many hours, no life balance, no real training
