Loan Processor (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA – July 4, 2018
If mortgages hadn't tanked, I would've still been working for this institution. Great benefits and people. Was actually training to be an underwriter, when things went south. Would love to learn how to underwrite again, but I gave that life up to be a nurse which I love.
You can't depend on you life working at Fremont Bank always laying off

I liked working there because, of the job I had to do and the work time of my job. They need to work on there work place there in that environment. I love what I do there to get the job done for the company as a whole.
Quality Control (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA – September 10, 2017
Not a good place to work a lot of work compared to pay I do not recommend working for this company they do not recognize their people for the work you do and there's a lot of politics also communication between departments and management is non-existent
Fast-paced environment and true Community Bank Feel
Manager, Commercial Real Estate Lending (Current Employee) – Livermore, CA – August 18, 2017
Fremont Bank is privately owned and maintains a great small community bank feel. The primary business is residential lending; however, we do have a CRE and C&I lending group. The commercial department can operate under a lot of pressure, especially when rates are up in residential. The most enjoyable part of working in commercial is the opportunities to learn and grow your career. The most challenging part is working in a sales favored environment and being short staffed.
Loan Servicing Specialist II (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA – July 12, 2017
Review the files that are assigned to me. Move the ones that I can and rework the ones I cannot move. Manage the ones that are incomplete. I try my best to satisfy the Loan Officers, underwriters, and closers.
Client Contact Representative (Former Employee) – Livermore, CA – June 30, 2017
Full of nepotism and arrogant leadership. Most will treat you like dirt. It is a good community bank if you can't bank anywhere else but not worth it when it comes time to get help on your banking. No room for advancement. They only hire middle wage slaves.
Mortgage loan processor (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA – June 2, 2017
I enjoyed working with Fremont Bank. Was very professional, and the hours were flexible. I gained a lot of experience in customer service, and learned a lot about mortgage loans. The culture is very diverse which I love. The hardest part about the job was the money they really don't pay as much because living in California is expensive. I still needed another job while working with Fremont Bank and going to school.
Closing Department (Former Employee) – Livermore, CA – May 19, 2017
Great place to work. It is fun and a family enviroment amng the co-workers. In closing there are some managers that has no management experience and can cause employees to work harder than they have to.
The downside is that the pay scale is low and you can be terminated/laid off at any time. If you work at Fremont Bank do not bring your personal items for your desk. Just bring a pen. If they release you it will be done while you are at home and you will never have access to the building or your items again.
