I have been working at True North Mortgage for about 2 years now and I have nothing but great things to say about the company. You are not just a number, like a bank, but you're truly appreciated. One of the biggest things is that you can be completely open with your management (including COO and CEO) about ideas for the company and what you think should be implemented. They actually listen to what you have to say and are willing to implement good ideas. With regards to the compensation, it is very fair. It is a salary plus commission structure - the harder you work, the more you make! The flexibility in the job is also excellent - the company understands that you have other things going on in your life - kids, school, etc - and they are very willing to work around it. Can't express enough how much I appreciate this company. Not going anywhere, anytime soon!
I've been with True North Mortgage for almost a year now & it has been a fantastic experience so far. Unlike other brokerages TNM has a great diverse culture, excellent support, great co-workers & amazing senior management team. The company has some big plans in the near future & is on the track to be the biggest & most successful brokerages in North America.
I have been working for True North for over 5 years now. I started as an agent and was promoted to branch manager position within a year of being there. I came from the large banks so there was a lot of reluctance of leaving that security however all of my concerns vanished once i started. I was rewarded for my hard work from a financial perspective, worked in a team environment that was not micro managed. We have a great upper management that prioritize work life balance for their employees and listen to their concerns and implement staff members' ideas on how to improve the business. This is the kind of job where you get what you put into it. So if you are eager and have great customer service skills you should have no problem being successful. From a training stand point, as a manager I can attest that we train as a team however this is not an entry level position so some level of mortgage knowledge is required in order for you to be successful. I have witnessed this company grow over the years from getting our own lender, expanding and opening new location, in the process of getting licensed as a bank and creating a customer/employee experience team that makes you and your clients feel that you are their most valued employee/customer for all of your life occasions and closing your business with the company. I was on mat leave last yera so when I returned it was difficult for me to be at the office 5 days a week as I do have a long commute, our management heard our concerns and arranged for all of us to have access to home office which allows us to work from home 2-3 daysplus... a week. This has been of great help to me and my family and a great example of work/life balance that the company accommodates their staff with. My team comprises of people who are in the same life stage as myself with young families and we all feel the value of working for such a company that takes care of us, our clients and our families. We also have an annual trip that we go to meet with our upper management team to discuss new business developments as well as discussing our ideas on how to improve our business operation. This is an all expense paid for trip for all employees. In terms of income I have been making a six figure income every single year since I started working for the company. Overall I have been very satisfied working here and I see myself with the company for the long run.moins
