Most Mortgage Order Mills (MOMs) do not trust you. They make YOU pay for a background check. About 99% of all U.S. firms never require that a job applicant pay for a background check. Talk to all of your relatives, friends and neighbors and ask it they have ever paid for a background check. The response will be “never”. I have never paid for a background check.
If you get some work, you are required to document all of your work with photos … lots of photos. A $3 mortgage inspection with a profit of “maybe” $1.50 usually requires about 7 digital photos. These photos must also be date and time stamped.
These MOMs pay the lowest fees in the industry. These MOMs trust nobody. They must be a total badass.
