Overall enjoyable internship.
Pros: Good food, fun interns, good pay
Cons: Slightly dull workplace
A typical day at work was getting through about 60 mortgage loans. This included a lot of phone calls, as well as research. I learned how to communicate well through the phone in order to get the information that I needed. I also learned how to multi-task as I was taking incoming phone calls as well as working on multiple loans at the same time. My manager was not very hands on because she expected her employees to get their work done, and problem solve on their own. My coworkers were a pleasure to work with for the most part, and the other interns on my team made the summer very fun. The hardest part of the job was getting used to being in a phone cue, as well as dealing with difficult people (including the brokers). The most enjoyable part of the job was the freedom I was granted as an intern. I had a lot of responsibility, and it was refreshing to be able to work without having a manager over my shoulder every step of the way.
