Alot of attention to detail without compromising on the work flow process along with raising individual standards every day
Loss Mitigation Specialist (Current Employee), Houston, TX – September 3, 2013
Pros: time flexibility, friendly and helpful environment
The management does a good job by keeping us motivated and by ensuring that we have all the right set of skills to accomplish our personal and team's goal every day. First I learned to be accurate with my daily tasks and as I was beginning to touch the level of accuracy I was expected to, I started focusing on being time-effective. The hardest part – more... of the job is the most enjoyable. We have trained to be flexible at all times and not adapting a certain procedure and relying on it. The new ideas and effective planning from the top management are delegated to the entire workforce which may be hard for those who find it difficult to stay flexible and adaptive. – less
I worked with Stewart Title while pursing my degree and was offered a full time position upon graduation. I accepted and my responsibilities and duties ranged from customer service, marketing and event coordination and executive assistant to the VP. Wonderful place to work, however the housing crash was the cause of my departure.
Old school way of preparing documents compared to today's technology
Title Loan Processor/Closer (Former Employee), Shalimar, FL – March 10, 2013
Pros: received my notary license which allowed me to start a side business "wedding on the go".
20 to 30 pages of documents hand typed and prepared for realestate closings, was probably one of the most demanding jobs one could have. Not only do you have the buyer and seller, but both realtors and the loan company to all come to agreement on the closing. Handing someone the keys to their new home they just purchased was always the highlight of – more... the day. – less
Clerical/Courier (Former Employee), Temecula, CA – January 7, 2013
Pros: fun enviroment, bonuses, free lunches
Typical day for a courier was driving documents from one destination to another, making sure all docs were signed for. I learned many ways around the city due to driving eight hours a day. Did Not deal much with management, but when I did they were always kind and generous. Hardest part of the job, keeping on schedule with deliveries, most enjoyable – more... part of the job I was outside all day. – less
Loss Mitigation (Current Employee), Houston, Bissonette/59 – December 20, 2012
Pros: fortunate to have employment
Cons: micromanage, siblings working in the same department/favoritism, clocking out for your break, contradicting
If you are looking for a long term, advancement opportunity this might not be the right fit for you. There are many temporary projects, you dont feel secure because this location has a high turn over. The pay could be good, depending who interviews you. Dont be surprised if you notice relatives, siblings working in the same department. That raises red – more... flags to some of us employees. Information can be contradicting such as policies, having to clock out for breaks, cant be more than 5 minutes late or you will be written up. Some supervisor want to intimidate you and try to micromanage. Wrong location to work, it is SW of Houston so you will notice hookers as you turn into Bissonette St. Before you get into our gated facility. – less
Great place to work, friendly co-workers whom I get along with great! Learned alot about the title and real estate business. Although it was not so hard, I'd say the hardest part of my job is to get things done and sent out on time, such as lenders & builders packages and recording documents.
