    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Provident Funding.

    Interview Details

    First is the phone screen. Make sure you have your resume in front of you when you do this as they will look to point out inconsistencies and punch holes in your resume. Next is the in person interview with a lead or manager. They will ask you a set list of open ended questions. Answers should be honest, not too damaging if you go the honest route and make sense. A second in person interview is to tie up any loose ends, if they call you in for a 2nd interview, it is more of a chance for you to put your foot in your mouth and lose the job than it is to win the job.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Provident Funding.

    Interview Details

    Initial callback to verify resume information and set appointment; 1st interview I felt was more focused on me the candidate; 2nd more focused on the job expectations.

    Best preparation, I think, is to have stories of your real-life experiences ready fitting certain common scenarios (conflict resolution or teamwork, dealing with failure, self-motivation or goal-setting, etc).

    Interview Questions
    • Questions are rather straightforward, interviewer is not looking for hidden psychological clues or deconstructed problem solving.   Answer Question
