Loan Processor Slavery
Loan Processor (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati , OHJanuary 22, 2018
The company is run by money hungry owner/executives, they run employees into the ground by being over worked and no help.
After I left, all the other Processors walked out for the above reasons.
Pros
Getting a paycheck.
Cons
Loan Officer's treated like "gold"/Processors treated like "slaves".

If you are thinking of applying for a job with this Bank, DON'T. Worst place to work in Cincinnati. Save yourself some misery.

I heard bad things about the place before I took the job, I probably should have listened
Processor (Former Employee) –  West Chester, OHDecember 4, 2017
Culture - unless you were the "in crowd", it sucked
Management - They don't have time to actually train someone
Wanted me to learn three different positions with minimum to no training and when I had questions, they seemed put out to have to stop and answer them. I got let go after 17 days.

No room for advancement
Loan Dept (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHApril 4, 2017
Overall not a good company to work for, there is alot of favoritism from managers to certain employees, no room for advancement and low pay. Ok part time work only for college students or retirees or for stepping stone but not a career.
Pros
Flexible schedule
Cons
Micromanagement

Not a good company for advancing your career. Managers show favoritism, and employees get paid minimal. Training for the positions is short and not thorough.

Lacking leadership and opportunities for advancement can lead to low production and low morale.
Mortgage Consultant (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHMay 31, 2014
A typical day brings answering lots of phone calls and entering or correcting lots of data in regards to mortgage loans. When management takes an interest in your position, the productivity would increase. Many people feel better about themselves and their work when they are accomplishing a lot each day. I enjoyed helping customers who were particularly upset or confused with their mortgage loan.
