    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Security Finance Corporation of Spartanburg in November 2013.

    Interview

    O.K. I applied for this job in late September and they got back to me in November!! O.K. I am a dedicated Glassdoor fan and I couldn't find hardly any detailed interviews about this and of course...I had an interview at this job! I will be as detailed as possible so that you will be prepared! So, I received a phone call on a Wednesday from the HR supervisor. He basically went over my entire resume and asked for each job "describe your duties at this particular job." He told me what this company was and what they did here. He asked if I had any questions about the job. He emphasized that the company does do "fieldwork." I didnt know what this was, but in this type of fieldwork, you have to go to the clients homes if they are not paying their payments on their loan. I agreed to the terms.The phone interview lasted about 20 mins and he asked me to come in for a interview on Friday. The interview was very laid back. I was in a room with just the 1 HR supervisor that I spoke to. He asked me about 20 questions. It was not hard questions at all...trust me ive been on a number of interviews, plus I hate them!!! He asked me the same questions as over the phone. (describe your duties) (customer service questions) there was maybe 2 STAR questions but it was easy breezy!! He then told me that it might be awhile before they can get back with me, and if I had any questions or anything to contact them. He also had the manager to talk to me and to describe to me a typical day at the workplace.( Also in this job there is a training that last for a week and its out of my city. Im not sure about other cities. But they pay for everything. Food, gas, hotel so you will not loose any money. But if you have children you may have to make arrangements. Because I had to) Anyways back to interview... So I thought...(I didn't get it ugh) But they called me Thursday of the following week and asked me if I had any questions about the job and if I was still able to do the "field work" and everything and I agreed!
    ***TIPS ON INTERVIEWS*** your interview starts right when you walk through the door whether you know it or not!
    ALWAYS back your answers up with evidence. Don't list a bunch of words when they ask to describe yourself. Say I am strongly devoted at the customer service, because...
    .List the skills and rewards to back up your statements!!
    GOOD LUCK! HOPE THIS HELPS!!

    Negotiation

    The pay is a little over $10.00 but that's if you have experience. I didn't negotiate because Ive been looking for a job for 2 years that's better than part-time and min wage so I didn't care what it was! Oh and they have GREAT benefits!

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Security Finance Corporation of Spartanburg in March 2010.

    Interview

    Its pretty simple, you fill out the application, you wait or call them within a couple days, if they are interested, you will get a hired. the interview process is fairly simple by asking you basic questions of why you want to work at this company and your salary requirements, etc... Everyone Starts as an Assistant Manager so you will carry a management title but you are not really "managing" to the expectations of what the title stands for. As you continue to show good work, you can be assured you will have a REAL opportunity to become a Branch Manager where you WILL get big time benefits and profits while working. You will then have the chance to actual manage your own employees and the profit bonuses are worthy.

    Do not go into this business with a big head because it will back fire and then upper level management will begin to start throwing their titles at you ad it can turn for the bad BUT you do have rights as well. Keep in mind, they hired you, they can fire you too.
