Underwriter II (Current Employee), San Antonio, TX – December 14, 2014
Pros: stable business
Cons: right-sizing causes uncertainty and instability in the business results.
A typical day consists of underwriting application which requires continued focus and mental alertness. Its hard work but I enjoy working with the dealer clients and exploring ways to mitigate risk and maintaining the dealer client relationship while increasing volume penetration at the dealer level.
Pros: Healthcare Chase is a great place to start your career. Their benefits are great and I have met wonderful people throughout the years. I have learned so much and I'm very grateful to be part of Chase. I had the opportunity to go to different departments and learn the business of credit cards and also mortgage.
Bankruptcy Operations Specialist (Former Employee), San Diego, CA – December 11, 2014
Cons: monitored everything, even when you had to go to the bathroom- they'd ask "where did you go?"
I've worked in many mortgage related jobs, but never one that was so hostile to their staff. Micro manage was so ridiculous in this company - not to mention favortism. Leads were sleeping with their staff - so obvious. Leads and management were so arrogant, it was disgusting. I laugh now learning of some of these peoples whereabouts as that site closed.
Vice President-Branch Manager (Current Employee), Antioch, IL – December 10, 2014
Pros: love my team, i have a great team and enjoy working with them
Cons: work life balance.
A typical day at work is coming in having a branch huddle with employees that open, talk about successes and overall customer experience and what have we done to take it to the next level. Then I sit down with my bankers and go over the plan for the day and what we need to do as a team to deepen our relationship with our clients and what is missing – more... in our conversation, so we role play a few examples and then I sit and observe while they are assisting customers. As they meet with customer, I go in and introduce myself to the customer to reinforce what the banker is saying and overall making my banker look very good, and on top of a pedal stoll. The most enjoyable part of my job is talking to our everday clients, we are a fun team and we get along and feed success off eachother. We are a great motivation for other branches and we have had many comments on how we are so different then the other branches.. The hardest part of the job overall is my work life balance. I work as many as 60 to 65 hours a week i usually open and close Mon-Saturday. I have a very limited staff, which then I need to fill in the gaps, I am a teller, banker, business banker and a manager all day. It is hard missing out on my family events because I cannot get a day off during the week and I also miss alot of doctors appointments. – less

Fraud Prevention Specialist (Former Employee), Elgin, IL – December 9, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: unreachable quotas and no rasies
I previously worked as a Fraud Prevention Specialist and the quotas were almost impossible to reach. They do have wonderful benefits but the compensation is rather low for the type of environment that individuals face on a daily basis. There is no room for advancement unless the quotas are met, which can actually become a problem for raises and job – more... enjoyment as well. Overall if you can perform the job and deal with all various systems you will more than likely enjoy the job as they are not a bad company to work for in general. – less
