Senior Commercial Loan Officer (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 6, 2013
Manage deal flow, we would receive approximately 10-15 new CRE request a day. I would look at the application request and do a quick analyst to see if the requests ratios and margins are in line. After than I would continue with further data research on CRE then contact the referring realtor/borrower. Some days I would participate in meet and greets and business development. I learned to originate, underwrite and present mu loans to the lending committee. Management was outstanding many times we agreed to disagree on certain files while keeping to policy and the appetite of the Bank. Best co-workers committed and honest. Like every business development position, it’s hard to turn down a prospect when you worked so hard to get them to become applicants. The joy is working through a loan and finding that something that you knew was there but it wasn't in plain sight to see.
Purchasing Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 19, 2013
Busy, full work day. Learned how to manage three departments. Co-workers were very helpful. Most difficult part of the job, I did not have a manager who interacted with me. Most enjoyable part of the job was my staff of sixteen employees.
Executive Secretary/Admin. Assistant to V.P. (Former Employee) – New York, N.Y. – April 6, 2013
My positions, afforded me great opportunities to interface with people. My boss was great. Co-workers great. This bank started downsizing several years ago, due to owner's desire to sell off branches - which has been done recently and taken over by another bank. Only one branch will be retained by original owner.
I cannot recall difficulties, as all the years I worked there were pleasant experiences.
Again, as I love helping people, the highlight for me was that I was afforded opportunities to assist customers in solving problems. This experience was great.
