5 Star Associate

  • Job Description:
    • 5 Star Associate
      Guaranteed Rate is looking for a customer rapport builder virtuoso with a desire to get their feet wet  in the mortgage industry and break into a career in sales. Your skills go unmatched and you love nothing more than helping people figure out and get what they need - yes even on their worst day. There’s a ton of growth potential here, the perfect gateway to our Liftoff Program, but you’ll need to be hungry and have an endless thirst for knowledge that will be fueled by our skill workshops. If you’re a motivated, resourceful, and a self-starter who can mentally multi-task, then your heart is here, and your home has been calling for you.
      So who is GR?
      Guaranteed Rate is not your typical mortgage company. We are young, have tons of energy and
      honestly, our location rocks – right off the Irving Park brown line. No really, the train rumbles past our windows. Our home base is a hip office with exposed brick and duct work, windows we can actually open during the summer, and an open floor plan – no cubicle life here.
      So what do we want from you?
      • Touching base with warm leads, and sometimes cold, but you don’t care – you love chatting with people and helping them achieve their goals
      • You’ll help good people looking for money get connected with top notch Mortgage Specialists to get them in the house of their dreams.
      • You’re obsessed with serving our customers and helping them with whatever they need.
      • You’ll need to be confident, tenacious, and able to make friends fast – in a single bound!
      • You can anticipate your customer needs – you’re just that good.
      • You’ll maintain a strong work ethic with a total commitment to success – we didn’t really need to say this though, it’s imbedded in your DNA.
      What you need to bring to the table?
      • Some sales or customer service– we love you!
      • If you’re fresh out of college, or just looking for a career change – pay us a visit!
      • If we didn’t mention it before, you should be goal oriented - you see a goal and obsess about knocking it out of the park.
      • We’ll help out with motivating you, but you’ve got to have a fire in your gut too!
      Here’s what we’ve got for you:
      • Hourly plus daily, weekly, and monthly performance bonuses – nothing like a little motivation!
      • We’re all about flexibility – gotta love work/life balance. Our hours are Monday-Saturday 8-8 totaling a 40 hour work week.
      • An in-house café offers breakfast, lunch and a late afternoon healthy snack. We subsidize all meals, so you’ll never pay full price. 
      • Access to the office gym for only $20 a year.  Yes, a whole year!  There is also yoga, cross fit, and boxing offered for a very small fee.  We want our folks happy, healthy, and feeling good. 
      • A FREE on-site nurse. Psshh! who needs a doctor’s appointment when our nurse can do it all? 
      • A 5,000 square foot rooftop deck that’s available to everyone all day and all evening with Wi-Fi, two bars, music, grills, fun umbrellas, a ping pong table, corn hole, and fire pits.  All of this is offered when Chicago gives us those non-snow-covered days.   
      • Holiday parties? We got’em!! Not just major holidays, any holiday…. St. Paddy’s Day, Baseball Opening Day, Octoberfest, 4 of July… We have a whole team in charge of that #GRVIBE. 
      • Inter-office contests like the Great Mac-Off, Chili Cook-Off and Limbo. We always keep you guessing, participating, and wanting more.   
      • 401k with percentage matching, Blue Cross health care coverage (yup, dental and vision too), short-term disability, life insurance, and even legal assistance (for a small monthly fee) …and did we mention the awesome rooftop deck? 
      • Work for the #16 Top 100 Companies to work for in Chicago.
