Pros: culture and benefits
A typical day at work consists of contacting clients via phone regarding refinancing home loans. Discussing with clients what types of financial goals they have. Continue to establish ongoing relationships, interview and gather information pertaining to needs and objectives, conduct credit checks, underwriting for loan programs, and assist clients through the loan process from application to closing.
I gained a lot of knowledge pertaining to the sales industry. I learned how to control a conversation with a client, was taught how to close multiple times to get the deal, and I believe the most important thing I learned was how to get my clients to trust me .
Management continually taught us different strategies on how to better our business. Every morning we would go over our business from the previous day, and what we would do to improve our business for the present day. We continually discussed what our goals for the week and month would be and our plan to reach them. Role playing real life situations with teammates one and one and with our entire region as whole.
The most difficult part of the job was working 70 hours a week M-F.
Everyday was a challenge. We always were learning new and different things on a daily basis, which I loved about the job.
