    I have been working at Activus Home Loans (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have been around for a long time and everyone is seasoned and nice here. Beautiful new office and up front submission bonuses to help you make money right away.

    Cons

    They are in Irvine but a little further away than what I am used to driving.

    Advice to Management

    Open up some more branches across the state!

    I have been working at Activus Home Loans full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have had some health problems this last year and I was at a few companies that I couldn't get going quick enough for a decent pay check. I started at this company and they worked with me. They have a great commission/salary package to get good paychecks quickly and fast processing times to get your funding commission quickly.

    Cons

    Working full time in the office can be hard.

    Advice to Management

    A part time position would be nice

    Pros

    I started in mortgage around 2010 with a big corporate company and was there a about 6 years. in the last year, I have had to bounce around sorting through the BS promises from different companies, Activus is a good fit for me and I wish I would have started here in 2010. The training here is quick but good. They pay you $400 per submission plus the hourly plus the funding which helped me ramp up very quickly. The processors here are getting loans clear to close sometimes within a few days of me submitting it. There is an in house underwriter who is amazing helping with finding lenders, getting exceptions and pushing loans. A lot of programs and flexibililty without the corporate BS. A lot of people have been here for years, which is always a great sign!

    Cons

    A lot of different programs to figure out but they are good at helping you after you take a 1003

    Advice to Management

    Keep it going!

    I worked at Activus Home Loans (More than a year)

    Pros

    You're not micro managed.

    Cons

    The truth about the compensation & tenure. People come and go, turnover is constant.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to people. Pay a livable wage and you'll be able to keep good people.

    I worked at Activus Home Loans full-time

    Pros

    They have been in business for over 20 years with a solid management team. All in all they do take care of their employees.

    Cons

    They should allow seasoned veterans to take new leads and not put them in a dialer.

    Advice to Management

    My only suggestion is I would allow seasoned veterans to take leads right away to see what they can do.

    Pros

    I've been bouncing around from company to company for a while until I found Activus and it restored my faith in mortgage! The potential here is of what it was in 2004. All the programs, good rates and quick processing - and no corporate BS. Managers are really nice and they have all been here a long time. I am finally getting back on track with my financial life!

    Cons

    I wish the office was closer to home.

    Advice to Management

    More BBQ on company lunch Friday! :-)

    Pros

    Commission was somewhat decent & management were great actors they will tell you what you want to hear to make you smile & believe it's such a great company

    Cons

    Draw is only for 2 months & you don't get inbound calls for newbies, you call out rehash leads in their database & if you don't close a ton of loans after 2 months expect to get fired! Also the best & most leads go to a couple of gals who's a fave to the owners so you will NEVER be able to compete nor meet their goal or even your own goal.
    That place is like a drive thru you're in & out quick.

    Advice to Management

    Stop favoritism way too obvious & most of all stop lying with all your broken promises, blah blah blah

    I have been working at Activus Home Loans (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This place is not your normal mortgage company. Everything seems legit and the employees have been here for a long time. They have great company reviews all over the web which makes it easier to work with clients. There are 2 types of positions. They have a JR and SR Loan Officer position. I have experience so I started as a SR Loan Officer. When you start as a Senior, you start up on inbound mail calls which are pretty much exclusive leads. Way better than working with internet leads. The juniors start with more training and making outbound calls to the companies current and past customers. Still not a bad gig for a new person trying to get into the business. They have a loan help desk to help you place and approve the tough loans, so they keep up on the guidelines for you. People are making pretty good money without having to work 100 hours a week. Lunch gets brought in every Friday and processing is very helpful. Overall, I will be here for a while and have already referred some friends here.

    Cons

    Office is far from where I live but still worth the drive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep everything the same!

    Pros

    They try to help you with leads from there funded files.

    Cons

    You have to submit 8 loans into processing before you can take inbound calls. They have a lot of turn over!
