    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Direct Capital (Portsmouth, NH) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Long and much too drawn out, even for a sales position. Found them at a job fair. Followed up and received a phone interview with an HR lady who had been there less than a year. Phone interview was basic. Then was moved onto the face to face where I met with three people in the same day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Direct Capital (Portsmouth, NH) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process went well. Interviewers were polite, and asked relevant questions. They really believe in their company and excited about the future. I left excited to become a part of the team! I was extended an offer but the requirements they place on your for checks are demeaning and lengthy. After several weeks of back and forth with their HR group on the requirements around fingerprints, drug test, salary confirmations and background checks on all past jobs (even those that are out of business) I threw in the towel and decided I don't want to work at a place like that. I applied at another local finance company and started with in a week. Their loss.

    I recommend that everyone avoid Direct Capital.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Direct Capital.

    Interview

    Applied for an entry level position with this company and was contacted by a recruiter to set up a time for a phone interview. After confirming a time and clearing a busy schedule of mine to chat with this recruiter I was sent an email 30 MINUTES prior to our interviewing informing me the position had been filled. Only after emailing the recruiter multiple times was I sent an email back noting again that he was sorry, the position had been filled and there were no other positions that matched my particular background.

    I was recruited from a website through HB1 visa. Recruiter was friendly but failed to follow up and call when said she would. I was left hanging for a while then hired. Once hired I was sitting idle for a while as I had no idea who manager was and had no training.

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Direct Capital (Portsmouth, NH) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Everyone was very nice and very professional, from the first phone call to the final interview. I started with the HR admin for a phone screen. I then came in and met with the COO, the HR manager, and the IT Manager.
    I then had phone interviews with the CEO and the VP of Marketing. The office is clean, and bright with 2 cafeterias and a gym. I could hear people laughing as I walked through the facility. The environment was very relaxed. All the technology was up to date and state of the art.
