    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Springleaf Finance in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews, one with the branch manager and one with the district manager. Had to wait a week after second interview before I got the call saying that I got the job. Both interviews were pretty basic, asking general questions about previous work experience, what you can bring to the table, etc.

    Due to cut backs and lay offs in recent year, they start everyone out at pretty much the same base salary. Not really any negotiation allowed

    Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Evansville, IN

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    Financial Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lumberton, NC
    Anonymous Employee in Lumberton, NC
    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.

    Loan Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Evansville, IN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Evansville, IN
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Springleaf Finance in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    After submitting a resume at a job fair, I received a call from a recruiter the next day. Answered several basic questions in regards to education and work history. We then scheduled an on site interview.
    I did a one-on-one interview with a department supervisor. Questions were very normal and straight forward. They then went on to describe the position and expectations, followed by an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Not a question, but we went into detail about the position's job security. This was necessary because the department was only four months old and the company had laid off nearly 30% of its workforce the previous year.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    At the time, I clarified that this was not a sales position but rather a customer service position. I was told it was not a sales driven position, which held true for the first several months. However, quotas and sales were soon added to the job requirements. Not saying this is a reason to not take a job with them, but just be aware that the company is constantly changing, and you may encounter similar conditions.
