    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Vanderbilt Mortgage And Finance.

    Interview

    I was recruited from my college campus. I was first invited to a company tour. A few days after the tour I was called to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was easy and only took about 15-20 minutes. At the end of the conversation I was asked to come in for an office interview. This interview lasted around 30 minutes and was conducted by HR. Immediately following that interview I was taken to listen in on some calls being made by Account Reps then asked to complete a personality type test. The test took me about 45 minutes to complete. A week or so after this interview, I was called and asked to come in for a final interview. This interview was conducted by a panel of 3 people. One was a "pod" leader and the other two people were "team" leaders. They each asked me a series of questions then left the room to deliberate. When the "pod" leader returned, he offered me the job. Overall a pretty basic interview process. There weren't really any questions asked that I wasn't expecting.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vanderbilt Mortgage And Finance in August 2010.

    Interview

    The company hired internally so it was a fairly straight forward process. they started by letting me know what exactly the position included. Then they wanted general knowledge of computer skills. This included Excel heavily, ability to learn (if you didn't already know) general accounting principles. There were 3-4 interviews with each senior member of the department, mainly so each person could get a feel for the individual being interviewed.
