Absolutely great company if you fail the test or are friends with the boss
Mortgage Loan Originator (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – July 13, 2015
In just a few words: Terrible. Unprofessional. Unorganized. Favoritism.
Here's the secret: Fail your origination test three times and get hired on as a full-time employee making 45,000+/year doing absolutely nothing. The management will promise you leads and business as long as you take and pass the origination exam on your own. You will spend 1-2 months preparing for the exam, and when you pass it, they will stick you at a desk with nothing to do. They will toss old call sheets your way with the names and numbers of people who called in several years ago, but they will not give you new business.
Nobody at HTL working commission-only from the beginning will last more than a few months, if that. Steer clear from this company and do NOT believe anything they are saying. Remember: you're dealing with people who have been in sales for years: YOU ARE BEING PITCHED.
It is fun to hear the seasoned employees complain about how miserable they are
