    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Springleaf Finance.

    Interview Details

    Quick turnaround between the phone interview with HR and the half-day, in-person interviews with the department. Peer interviews were via a panel, more senior-level interviewers were one-on-one. No formal testing, only behavioral, conversational questions. There was no negotiation for salary, paid-time-off, etc. as I'm entry-level (recent college grad).

    Personal Loan Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Springleaf Finance in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. I was called a week later and spoke with the branch manager on the phone for about 20 minutes. The first phone call seemed to be like a screening phone call, see if I was qualified. She then proceeded to say that she would give me a call later on in the week (which ended up being about 3 days) for a face-to-face interview in the office.

    The interview in the office took about an hour and was strictly questions read from a pamphlet. She took notes while I was answering the questions. There was no elaboration on any of the question, she just stuck right to what was on the paper. I was then told that I would be given a call the following week to speak with the district manager. I followed up with a thank you note, but never heard from the district manager.

    Two weeks later I received an email from HR informing me about the selection of another candidate.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Springleaf Finance in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Pretty straight-forward process. Seems like a decent company to work for but going through some changes. Hiring Managers were very friendly, courteous, and professional during the process. Had a phone interview with a branch manager, then in person with that manager, had interview with Regional Manager, then interview with another branch manager. Base salary is not quite what I was looking for.

    Senior Collector Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Evansville, IN
    Anonymous Employee in Evansville, IN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Springleaf Finance in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    The day after I applied to several positions, a HR rep called me and we completed a telephone interview. He e-mailed different departments my info. Inevitably, within 2 hours, I was called to arrange an interview....The interview was scheduled for the following week. The department head who interviewed me was an obese, (appeared) burned out, long term employee of the company. I appeared overly joyful compared to his overall personality.

    Reasons for Declining

    The department head that interviewed me appeared to be completely burned out. I'm sure he is good at his job, but appeared as if he would rather be doing anything else than working there. I DID NOT want to be in his shoes.
