    Associate Interview

    Interview Details

    I sent in my resume & then took time out of a vacation to come in for an interview. The interview went well & everyone was friendly--I thought. Turns out they were apparently concerned that I didn't have positive things to say about my current employer. That's an odd concern given that I'm trying to leave. LendingClub then contacted my current employer and mentioned that I didn't have positive things to say about it!!! That has really hurt my current position. As icing on the cake they didn't bother sending me any sort of follow up, their HR also seems flaky. LendingClub poses itself as an alternative to big banks but most of its rapidly-expanding staff comes from big bank backgrounds and that mentality seems to be prevalent.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at LendingClub.

    Interview Details

    The process was very fast. I had an internal referral. It was very much Java based (some trivia and coding), unfortunately I was not familiar with mysql which was the other topic that was popular.

    I happened to be in town after 2 phone screens and did a onsite. They were highly accommodating to my sudden schedule, and everyone was pleasant and friendly.

    Great office environment.

    Member Support Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at LendingClub in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The application process a few days. I found this company through a career fair at my school and handed in my resume. A few days later, I had a phone interview which led to an on-site interview that same week.

    The interview took about an hour. It was a one-on-one interview with three people: the recruiter and two supervisors. I was pretty nervous at first since it's been a while since I've gone to an interview, but everything went fine and the interviewers weren't stoic or intimidating so just be comfortable. A couple of questions regarding my resume, experience, and why I would want to work for their company. Be prepared for the last interview. No behavioral questions, but the interviewer will ask questions related to customer service. After the interview, you will be notified within 24 hours about whether you're a good fit for Lending Club. The next process is to submit your references and do a background check which took a week for me.

    Overall, the experience was great. I'm excited to start working for this growing company!

    It was ok - was bounced from room to room because they hadn't booked a space. Felt as though people were randomly being brought in to meet with me who may not even be working with me.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    Went through 2 phone screens and went onsite. Most questions were average difficulty. After onsite didn't hear back from recruiter, even after emailing him. Figured they probably looked at experiences in certain frameworks more than problem solving skills and fundamentals (someone with good fundamentals can pick up any framework).

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at LendingClub.

    Interview Details

    I was a finalists for a director level position at Lending Club. 4.5 hours of interview time invested with 6 of their people, including a senior manager, and they didn't even have the professionalism and decency to get back to me. I followed up too.
    It takes 30 seconds to send an email to thank someone for their interest in your company and let them know the decision.

    Architect Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at LendingClub.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a phone interview set up by a HR person. I spoke to the hiring manager and the call started off with a series of technical questions. After the interview I concluded this was not the job for me and I was not qualified for the role. It was the worst phone interview I have ever attended as I did not know answers for many questions. I have never had a situation where I did not know an answer.
      A few hours after the phone interview I got an email from the HR saying that I did "really well" and they wanted to meet me in person. I was surprised because I was 100% confident that the interview did not go well. I was even tempted to ask if the HR person emailed the wrong candidate. The worst part is I could not handle the 30 min. phone interview and then I receive an invite for a 6 hour in person interview. I wondered why the hiring manager decided to meet me in person. I was tempted to cancel the interview but I thought they probably wanted to consider me for other roles and hence I went in person. That was my biggest mistake. After my meeting with the first two interviewers, they realized they made a mistake calling me. The third interviewer walked in (after a conversation with the second interviewer) flipped through my resume and rather rudely told me that there was a mistake and they didn't think I fit the role. She said she could talk to other teams for a position that fit my background but I had already made up my mind that I will never apply for a company like theirs again.

    Feedback:
    1) The hiring manager couldn't judge if a candidate is a right fit through the phone interview and hence wasted my time and theirs.
    2) Wish they had been a little nice about telling that I am not a fit to the role.
    3) The interviewers had not taken time to review my resume before meeting me. That could have prevented all this from happening.

    Lesson learnt for me: If you think you are not suitable to the role, let the HR person know in advance.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at LendingClub in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Just awful. A recruiter reached out to me and I wanted to find out more about engineering within a financial company. I was scheduled for a phone screen with a director. My interview lasted 10 mins in which I was asked questions that would probably be apt for a DB Admin. He hadn't looked at my resume and didn't bother when I told him that I am not going to be able to answer his questions as they were not relevant to my skills and my experience. What a waste of time.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at LendingClub.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by Recruiter, to which i responded back after looking at the company information.
    After couple of days, technical phone screen has been setup for 30 mins.
    Questions weren't tough but some questions asked were ridiculous, not sure why one would remember what each http status code does like 301,401,501 etc ..... Also what does the Web Page do, explain in detail. Overall i am not at all impressed with the questions.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at LendingClub in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Two phone calls and two onsite interviews that went very smoothly. The recruiter actually vetted me for two different positions she felt that I was a good fit for. I selected one that I really wanted even though I didn't think I had a chance. But I got hired and it's at the perfect timing with the company and their growth pattern. I look forward to my job.
