Loan Auditor (Former Employee) – Lincolnshire, IL – June 12, 2015
A typical day was sitting at your desk all day with no recognition. The work was pretty simple and followed a simple checklist. However, if you were hired on contract it was an obvious separation upper management barely noticed you. The work was pretty boring but the consistent schedule and major holidays off was great!
Most holidays off, free admission into bulls and blackhawks games
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Orange County – April 13, 2015
I was recruited by the regional manager, shortly he gave me a list of all of their inactive accounts. Within my 3rd month I had an $8mm pipeline and was fired with no notice and was told that my volume was too low. At that stage I was off of the draw so wasn't costing the company any money. So, obviously they had an agenda; they knew that I could bring in the business, so they used me for my experience and my contacts then dumped. I understand that my accounts went to an inside rep, which probably cost them less. Beware; they are a shady company and AE's are just numbers. Totally unprofessional.They refused to pay me on my pipeline of business - that is the first time in my 30 years in wholesale that a lender wouldn't pay me on the business I brought in!

Horrible management, sweat shop, stay away you've been warned. Almost loan is self employed investment multi unit properties and they want 5 a day fully underwritten, yeah ok. Ohh look they are ALWAYS hiring but not expanding, think about it.
work from home, gives you privacy to look for another job.
Collateral Coordinator (Former Employee) – Lincolnshire, IL – September 11, 2014
I had the title of "collateral coordinator." The duties for this job were simple and repetitive, but required attention to detail. Daily activities included opening FedEx/UPS packages in the morning, electronically confirming their arrival, scanning documents into the database, emailing other departments concerning discrepancies, and shipping required documents to warehouse banks upon a loan's funded status. Occasionally, this job required the ability to solve problems and think critically. The best part of my job was getting to know my coworkers. The aspect I liked least was that many people in the department worried frequently about job security. Ultimately, most of the department was laid-off.
Loan Delivery Specialist (Former Employee) – Lincolnshire, IL – December 3, 2013
A typical day at work for me was to sort through the final mortgage documents (the closing package) and put them in a specific order (each closing package was usually well over 100 pages), make sure they were signed correctly and then scan and upload them into the computer system. Then my job was to later upload loans to Fannie Mae- Loan Delivery and Freddie Mac Selling System and ensure information is correct and then electronically deliver loans to servicers Dovenmuhle and Nationstar. The hardest part of the job was that they stressed that everything was priority and they would ask you to do several different things at one time, but when everything is a priority it's difficult to actually prioritize. It was also stressful that some days we would go over half the day without having any work and then it would be almost time to go and we would get bombarded and have to stay over 2 hours late. Most of my department was often afraid to come into work it seemed because they were afraid of getting in trouble for messing something up, and accidents happen, especially when they are asking you to do several things at the same time. However it seemed like they didn't really understands accidents happen because we would get a write up if we messed up Also, at one point they decided to cut certain departments but then increased the rest of our work because now we had to do those departments jobs, but did not increase our pay. Then a few months later they cut another 20% of the company and from what I've heard, the individuals left have stayed about 2.5 hours late every night since.
Credit Risk Analyst (Current Employee) – Lincolnshire, IL – September 12, 2013
A typical day at work would be to come in, get settled into my desk, answer any missed calls/messages, and then get started on my work for the day. My work includes reviewing all broker packages, requesting any missing documentation, and then submitting it to my boss to be either approved or declined to work with our company. My boss would also have me do other projects throughout the day such as "scrubbing" accounts for Sales Managers, going through past applications for certain documentation and anything else he needs help with.
I learned that you constantly learn new things everyday and in order to grow and be the best that you can be you have to take everything that is given to you and run with it.
My manager and supervisor are very supportive and easy to get along with. They challenge me, but at the same time do not push me to be the best that I can be.
My co-workers are supportive and good with giving constructive criticism. We help each other out all of the time.
The hardest part about my job would have to be staying busy on a regular basis. The workload comes in at different times and sometimes all at once and sometimes none at all.
The most enjoyable part of my job would have to be the people I work with and learning new things about my company and how it works everyday. I always want to be challenged and pushed and when you learn new things or how to do something new it helps to push me as an employee and want to go further.
Productive Team with a lot of Chemistry. Active, easy to get along. Listeners, Good Work Ethic.
Treasury Team Lead (Current Employee) – Lincolnshire, IL – July 22, 2013
Very easy going, determined department. Assign/Assist all Treasury Analysts with sending all the wires for each loan promptly and efficiently out to each title company by checking documentation. Hardest part of my day is managing and understanding the functions of each bank we work with. Still adjusting and learning each bank we work directly with. I get a long with my team. They are a bunch of great individuals with a lot of potential. We help each other out. Definitely one of the best teams I have ever worked with. What I learned is to always take responsibility and when wrong, admit your faults, and learn from mistakes. We are all not perfect. My work ethic has improved dramatically and I see myself having a promising future.
team chemistry is amazing
i want to be busier and be trained more on our products and our company as a whole.

Jr Underwriter (Former Employee) – Lincolnshire, IL – January 15, 2013
Work load is extremely high and overtime was mandatory. Although I was able to work the mandatory overtime 7 days a week can been extreme at times. I worked very good with others and am not afraid to ask questions with I am not sure of an answer. I also do research to be certain I am giving the correct information to my customers. I can work from both the office and home.
working with vrey knowledgeable co-workers that enjoy what you do.
