Not for everyone
Associate (Former Employee) –  Gainesville, GASeptember 30, 2017
Young staff which can be cliquey and immature. Lack of structure and an overly relaxed atmosphere where no one is accountable. Lack of strong leadership by leads and general lack of organization make this a source of frustration. Promoting at random without real valuable performance merit. Lots of behind the scenes whining. Constant changes in direction with how you perform your role each day as though they don’t remember what they told you the day before or just don’t care. Low pay and laughable and late raises.
Pros
Great owner, great overall company, Free EOM lunch, Monthly Birthday Cake, limited micromanaging, company outings, yearly ball with fantastic prizes.
Cons
Lack of clearly defined job roles, lack of structure and discipline, no personal accountability or initiative in most of the staff, lack of strong leads, and random promotions that have no merit.

Overall good place to work but here is a problem with certain upper management. Loyalty does not seem to matter. Title that I was hired for has been changed drastically.
Pros
Monthly free lunches. Quarterly bonuses
Cons
Upper management

Mortgage Loan Company that has grown from 1 office to offices located in 22 states since 2002
sales (Current Employee) –  North Carolina, Georgia, FloridaJuly 21, 2016
Homestar is a fast growing company that has a family atmosphere. No micromanaging, no assigned territory or assigned referral sources. Get the business, the bottom line. The CEO is very good at caring for his people and the clients that do business with us. Co-workers are to work together as support for each other and getting the job done for our clients. The hardest part of the job is the growth the company has experienced, there is lack of training opportunities, back office support is difficult. It is not that the employees do not want to help, it is just that adding Loan Officers and new office locations so quickly, seems the growth cannot keep up with the amount of employees needed for back office support. Suggest highly experienced new hires that need little help, you have to know what to do, and figure it out on you own most of the time. If you can do this, the pay is good, and no micromanaging.
Pros
No micromangement and great commission comp plan
Cons
Lack of training and back office support

Overall, the company and the people are great. However, as an up-and-coming company, it needs to work on its structure and SOP.

Always learning something new
Loan Officer (Former Employee) –  Gainesville, gaJanuary 14, 2014
I worked as a Loan Officer. I had to develop relationships with different real agents to gain leads/customers from them. A typical day I would start by receiving important information from the buyer and enter the information in the company software. Prepared packages for the lender to review. Sometimes I had to help customers with ideas to get their credit scores up in order to get a loan. I got to meet a lot of people. The hardest part was when I had to call the customer and tell them their loan has been denied.
Pros
the money
Cons
healthcare
