    Support Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Springleaf Finance in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Several voice mails and phone calls from an HR intern, followed by a grueling phone interview with an HR recruiter, who seemed to go out of her way to indicate I was not qualified for the job because I had no experience 'with the lending process'. Shocked to get an in-person interview at corporate HQ. When I arrived, the same HR intern couldn't find the conference room where my interview was to take place, so we walked all over the building twice! Interviewed while winded from all the walking. Got a turndown email the following day, which after this debacle was a blessing.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Springleaf Finance in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I recieved a call on Wednesday and was left a message. I called the number back but it was hard catching the same person who left the message because she was always out or busy with a client, not a big deal though. On Friday I left a message and received a call back within the hour, much to my surprise the call was for an on the spot interview. The interview went well, she asked questions, I asked questions; she told me about the company and position. I will have to wait for a follow up call in order to find out if I am being considered any further.
