UWM (United Wholesale Mortgage)

Summer Team Member

May - August 2021 • Pontiac, MI

What I liked

I loved the networking opportunities, the culture and getting to work with other interns.

I wish our responsibilities would have been more clear in the beginning.

Advice

Really make an effort to network with the VP's, if you reach out they most likely will respond.

Sales Summer Team Member

May - August 2021 • Pontiac, MI

What I liked

The community that surrounded me at UWM was almost unparalleled, as I got to meet plenty of students and full-time team members and have a great time. I also enjoyed the many different projects I was able to complete that led to me gaining a better understanding of Microsoft Excel and improving my selling skills, among other things.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been able to do a little bit more direct selling, but I understand that work at UWM is very relationship-based and long-run focused, so it makes sense that I had minimal exposure to that while only being there for 3 months.

Advice

Try to meet as many people and learn as much as you possibly can while you're here.

Summer team member

May - August 2021 • Pontiac, MI

What I liked

I loved my work on the Secondary Marketing team and enjoyed my coworkers as well! The CEO is active within the company and you feel appreciated for the work you do. The company encourages you to shadow other teams and move to other teams if you feel it fits you better.

Corporate Training Intern

What I wish was different

Slightly better pay would have been nice, but it's better than unpaid internships!

Summer Team Member - Security

July - August 2020 • Pontiac, MI

What I liked

The team atmosphere. It was very welcoming and energetic.

What I wish was different

Training and internship structure. Instead of doing “charity week” for the company, I could’ve done an extra week shadowing the analysts which would’ve benefited my career development. Other interns in the specific department that handles events could’ve pulled off the entire charity week.

Advice

Make sure the company fits you before committing to an internship.

Community relations summer team member

May - August 2019 • Pontiac, MI

What I liked

It was a very welcoming company for how big they were. You will casually see the CEO walking around and engaging with other team members! This previous summer there was free lunch Fridays. They love to help out the community around them. The summer team members raised over 19k in a week to help support local charities!

What I wish was different

Advice

Its a great company to work for. There is many different positions available even though it is a mortgage company!

Software Development Intern

May - August 2019 • Pontiac, MI

What I liked

At United Shore, there isn’t a “corporate culture.” You can talk to anyone from your team leader to the CEO at anytime. I was given actualy software development work to learn and grow in the field of IT. Lots of workplace ammeneties. Everyone is willing to drop what they are doing to help you at any time. Even as an intern, your feeback is valued about anything and you have a chance to really make an impact.

What I wish was different

I wish the recruiting process would have been more structured.

Advice

Meet and as many people as you can and network, network, network!
