lots of team work
Senion Loan Officer (Former Employee), St. Louis, MODecember 15, 2014
Pros: great office
Cons: none really
It was hectic at best, lots of paperwork to complete loans. The customers at closing was the BEST - when people asked me what I did for a living - I said I CHANGE PEOPLE'S LIVES
I learned more compassion, and it was very heartfelt. Everyone here assisted everyone else, it was a feeling of management wanting us to succeed. When I had to deny a potentiol customer - it hurt and they were sad. But I always had a plan for them - and if they followed the plan - maybe we could proceed in 6 months. That was a great feeling

Mortgage Loan Officer (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLFebruary 6, 2014
Pros: freedom to structure my own day
Cons: no one watching over my shoulder keeping me focused
I am the only one that has an outside sales contract where I do not have to report to the office each day. I use my laptop and go to various Real Estate offices to meet with agents and or clients. This flexibility allows me to conduct one on one business both with agents and clients which has always been my strong suit.

Admin Assistant (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLAugust 2, 2012
Pros: caring management, great teamwork, compensation, benefits
Cons: the mortgage crisis
I worked as an Admin Assistant for FOM when they initially opened the branch in Jacksonville. I was very new to the area and had some troubles while first adjusting. The management was extremely flexable as well as caring and made the adjustment easier. I would recommend anyone to work at First Option Mortgage of Jacksonville.
