    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nationstar Mortgage in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted through a recruiter about the position. Did a screening with her, got some info on the company, another screening and then she setup an interview. The interview was just a 1 on 1 with a manager... pretty informal. He had a list of questions but only asked me 1 off of it (he told me). Wanted to gauge me as an individual more or less.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Nationstar Mortgage in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was notified about the job through an employment agency which set up an interview. Nationstar was hiring a large amount of employees because of economy crash. Filled out information online including previous work history and last 7 years of residence information. Interviewer was unconventional in his questions. Seemed to make it easy to do well and get hired.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nationstar Mortgage in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was fairly painless. Nationstar does most of their recruiting through outside companies. The outside company got a hold of me, and set up the interview directly with Nationstar. I met with someone from HR for about 10 minutes, then met with the hiring manager and his assistant for about 30 minutes. Afterwards, I observed a loan counselor at work. I briefly touched base with the hiring manager after that, and then the interview was over. They seem to offer positions 3-5 days after the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nationstar Mortgage in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Contacted a third party recruiter via a college job site.
    Discussed the position with the third party recruiter first over a phone interview.
    Came in person for an interview with a human resources representative and then manager, seemed pretty straight forward, the human resources representative covered the salary and benefits and then the manager asked questions for maybe 20-30 minutes and detailed the job position.
    After the interview the manager allowed me to shadow a Loan Counselor with a call to see what the daily duties of the job would basically entail.

    Interview Questions
    • Standard questions that are usually asked in an interview like "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?". The manager just asked me the questions off a list on a piece of paper.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    They don't glorify the position at all, you're basically sitting on the phone calling people to pay their loans all day. I had another job offer that didn't force me to relocate so I went with that.

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Nationstar Mortgage in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a staffing company, they interviewed me, briefed me and ran background checks. I was then put on hold for about 2 or 3 weeks. Finally the staffing company called me back and referred me to Nationstar. Nationstar had me come in for an interview, I met with the head of HR, then the Loss Mitigation Manager and another manager. The meeting was an inquistion!!! Know your facts about this company because they will ask you and stress your intentions to grow with the company. I finally had a phase where I shadowed someone on the floor and the interview came to a close. The company let me know they were running a background check and then hired me.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Nationstar Mortgage in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    During the course of the interview, I met with 3 different people. The first was the recruiter, the second was one of the managers that I would be working under, and the third was an actual representative. I was able to sit down with the representative to see what the job entailed, which was really nice. After that, the recruiter came back and small interview afterward. If you liked it and wanted to continue, you would need to take a drug test and background check. From the day I left the interview to the day I got the job offer - it was about three weeks.

    Negotiation Details
    The salary was non-negotiable, unfortunately. But there is a lot of room for growth and opportunity as soon as you start. All of the higher-ups are willing to work with you to get you where you need to be. Although everyone is pretty over qualified, it is easy to tell who is going to succeed.
