Quicken Loans

Mortgage Banker

May - October 2018 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

Quicken Loans has an exellent work environment and the people who work there are great! They truly give you everything you need to be successful, from training to free slushies in the break rooms.

What I wish was different

The hours are brutal. I never worked less than 60 hours a week as a banker. Six or seven days a week was typical for this position.

Advice

Be honest with your self before taking a position as a banker. This is 100% a sales job you will need to talk to clients for hours every day and sell them on the largest financial transaction of their lives. You will hear 98% of the time and yes 2% of the time from clients. If you think you can thrive in that environment this job is a winning lottery ticket.

Treasury Operations Intern

May 2018 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

Fair pay, 40 hours/week, and good on-the-job training and experience. The work experience also helped further my knowledge of liquidity management and financial reporting, which are important Accounting and Finance concepts. The location in the heart of downtown Detroit provided access to scenic views and excellent lunch choices. They accommodated having class during the day, and worked with me building a schedule around that.

What I wish was different

When accepting the position, I was under the impression that the hours would be slightly more flexible to work with the demands of school. While they did a great job ensuring I would be able to attend the actual classes, the workload at times can be fairly demanding, and because I was given fairly important responsibilities, I was unable to take large chunks of time off to unwind or focus on academics.

Advice

I would absolutely recommend this position for somebody who is taking part-time classes, or as a summer internship if they are not taking Spring/Summer classes. A full-time class and work schedule is very strenuous.

May - August 2019 • Detroit, MI

Come with and open mind! This internship isn’t just an Internship it may be your new home away from home. It’s not just work all day they also make sure your well being is ok and they believe in fun at work. It’s a life changing experience.

UI/UX Designer Intern

March - August 2019 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

I loved my role as a UX Content Designer, even though I didn’t fully know what that meant when first coming to the company, because I learned a lot. The company culture was also great and I felt very welcomed and involved in the team.

What I wish was different

I wish I had more consistent projects to work on. I was often given many small products to focus on, but would have liked a few bigger projects that I could focus on for longer periods of time and really immerse myself.

Advice

I would say to not be intimidated. Especially at a big company like Quicken Loans, its easy to feel overwhelmed, but everyone is friendly and willing to help if you just ask questions and try to make friends. And even experts in their field are unsure of what to do sometimes, we’re all human and we’re all in this together.

Mortgage Banking sales

May - August 2019 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

I loved the opportunity of the program. Not only did I do my sales job, but the internship program allowed me to shadow other areas within the Rock Family of Companies, as well as attend fun events that familiarized the interns with the company, its leaders, and Detroit! I would not have traded my rewarding, fun, and learned experience.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have been paid more as a mortgage banking sales intern. We were speaking with real clients and doing work that full-time employees do. Not only that, but we were getting trained on the mortgage process and took classes that had exams. We studied, worked hard, had a busy schedule (in comparison to other interns); I wish our pay would have reflected that.

Advice

Try everything, do everything. The Rock Family of Companies internship program offers so many opportunities to be immersed into what being a full-time employee is like and it is up to you to learn about it all. I'm thankful I got to shadow and attend the internship events I could because it opened my eyes to all that Quicken Loans has going on, how they live out their "isms" as a company, and how they are defying the corporate lifestyle we know today. I would totally go back to QL if they would have me.

Sales Analytics Intern

May - August 2019 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

Awesome culture and a great atmosphere to work in. Friendly boss and employees. Lots of intern activities and opportunities to meet other interns and network with professionals at the company. Some opportunities for leadership!

What I wish was different

Wish there had been more on-task work to do for my internship other than creating excel sheet reports.

Advice

Know how to use excel and always ask for more work or ask questions when you have time! Summer flies and it's a great learning experience, so enjoy it!
