    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Springleaf Finance.

    Interview

    Basic, scripted interview. Google interview questions and it's all there. You meet with a BM then a DM. Probably 2 interviews. Not a very formal process. If you're slightly educated you should be able to give them answers they're looking for. Say slot of things about being self motivated and sales oriented. They are pushing excellent customer service right now, and they need to because it sucks.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Springleaf Finance (Staunton, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty straightforward. Met the DBM at my campus career fair. Went to the office a few weeks later and had more of a conversation than an interview. They want to see if you can manage people, and also if you would be able to be a successful Personal Loan Specialist. Everyone starts out as a PLS and then can be promoted to Manager.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Springleaf Finance.

    Interview

    Quick turnaround between the phone interview with HR and the half-day, in-person interviews with the department. Peer interviews were via a panel, more senior-level interviewers were one-on-one. No formal testing, only behavioral, conversational questions. There was no negotiation for salary, paid-time-off, etc. as I'm entry-level (recent college grad).

    Interview Questions

    • One interview consisted only of "so tell me about yourself" and I was expected to fill in the hour on my own.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation for entry-level.

    Underwriter II Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Springleaf Finance (Minneapolis, MN) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR Dept, same day call back to set up in person interview with managers 5 days later, job offer within the same day - this was not typical to their process now due to me starting at the beginning of their expansion in underwriting The interview itself was pretty laid back, their goal is to truly get to know YOU and if you would be a fit for their company. The interviewers actually spent about 50% of the time selling Springleaf to ME. Which was refreshing in an interview process as I could tell they truly cared not only if I would be a good asset to the company but if the company would be something I would enjoy.
