Interviewed at Veterans United Home Loans
Interview Details – They were very professional and prompt throughout the entire process. After sending in my resume, it was only a day or two before I heard from someone to move the process forward. Next I had to fill out my application and character evaluations online. Once those were completed I received a call the next day to set up the initial interview. The process from applying to first interview was less than a week and very well organized.

Interview Details – I was referred by a current employee. Within two minutes of emailing her my resume she had forwarded it to HR. 10 minutes later I received a link from HR to complete their screening process. 3 hours after that I received an email to schedule an initial interview. 2 days later I interviewed for 45 minutes. 1 day later I got the email to schedule the follow up interview with a direct manager. I was scheduled to meet for the second interview within a week of the first. I appreciated their quick and up front approach to interviewing. It eliminated all anxiety usually associated with the process.

Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Veterans United Home Loans in February 2013.
Interview Details – Was contacted by the company regarding a decision via email. They asked I complete personality profiles/skill tests which took quite a bit of time. They were easy but takes time to get through each of them. I was then brought in to interview with HR. Interview is very informal and questions are pretty abstract. It was about 30 minutes. A couple of days after that interview I was contacted to schedule another interview with the hiring manager. This interview was a mess. She basically wanted me to tell her this job is my dream job which it isn't. She rambled around for over an hour. She then told me the position was different than what HR had explained to me. The lack of communication within the organization just left me with a bad impression of the company and not the type of place I'd like to work.
Interview Question – Questions were pretty easy. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Honestly I have a very poor impression of this company now. Their casual environment doesn't seem to lead to very professional behavior. HR is mlsleading and they think very highly of themselves.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Veterans United Home Loans in August 2012.
Interview Details – I was recommended by a current employee I had known for a long time. After sending him my resume, I was contacted via email by one of the marketing department managers informing me that one of the internship coordinators was interested in speaking with me over the phone.
I received a phone call the next day from the coordinator. The conversation lasted about 6-8 minutes, and consisted of a brief overview of the internship and asked if I had any questions. The phone call ended with a scheduled interview.
As usual, I dressed business professional for the interview. The interview consisted of online marketing specific questions. They asked what experience I had with online marketing, if I would be willing to remain in Columbia if offered a job, and other common interview questions.
After the interview, which was not too formal (reflects the companies atmosphere), I heard back within the week being offered the position.
Interview Question – Describe a time when you had a problem to solve or a task to complete with no instructions or guidelines. How did you go about solving the problem or task? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Detailed in the hiring and interview process description.
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Veterans United Home Loans in May 2011.
Interview Details – I applied online and used an employee referral on the application. I then had to take a very basic skills test just after the application which tested my computer skills which was like I said, very basic and easy. I got a call back about two weeks later or so. The HR representative asked basic enough questions and the interview lasted about 15 to 20 minutes. I never received a call back and just assumed I did not get the position. The company I applied to was called VA Mortgage Center.com before they were acquired by the current company.
Very Easy Interview
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Veterans United Home Loans in January 2012.
Interview Details – I originally gave Veterans United my resume at a school career fair, not really by choice, but after they just about yelled at me to come to their booth. Setup a phone interview a couple weeks later which was all easy behavioral questions, and then received an email to set up an in person interview. They also had me do an online computer skills test and an IQ type of test. The first part of the interview consisted of more behavioral questions, then I was brought over to interview with several programmers. They mostly just asked questions about my programming experience. I received an offer the next week.
Interview Question – Describe a time you had to work in a team on a project. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I was never very interested in the position, but there was no way I was going to consider it after the salary offer they made me... It was about $20k less than the average starting salary of a Comp Sci grad, and I recently accepted an offer that is literally more than double the Veterans United offer.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Veterans United Home Loans in February 2011.
Interview Details – I was a little bit nervous because I did not have as much experience as the competition may have had. I think a unique thing about this company is that for TALENTed and Hard working people they will take a risk even if they do not have the "traditional" experience and education for that field. I had one group interview.
