    It's always hard to know what to expect when going in for that interview -- and preparation can make all the difference. What is the interview process like at Sovereign Bank? Any advice on striking the right note?

    I've spent the last 5 years as a licensed mortgage broker until I decided to look for greener pastures. In my travels I came across an ad from Sovereign looking for mortgage originators, indicates a salary will be paid. So I call to find out more about it, just to see if they offered a decent salary for experienced people. Turns out, they lied about the salary, no salary whatsoever. They don't even provide leads from the bank. They want you to work on a 100% commission basis, bringing all of your clients to them in exchange for 45 basis points per loan! Ha! I used to earn two or three points per loan, so the average commission would be anywhere from 4k to 6k on a 200k loan. Sovereign wants me to hand them those loans in exchange for 900 bucks each! You do all the work, they make all the money! What kind of idiot would accept such an arrangement? Why even advertise it? Anyone stupid enough to agree to those terms obviously has so little industry experience that they can't generate loans anyway. Don't waste your phone call. Sovereign is looking for suckers.

    Every business has it's own style. What is the office environment and culture like at Sovereign Bank? Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers? What is a typical day in the life of an employee at Sovereign Bank?

    What do you think -- is this company going to survive and thrive? Are they looking to expand their staff, or do you think layoffs are inevitable? How does Sovereign Bank stack up against the competition?
