    Junior Loan Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accion.

    Interview

    One phone call to discuss what the company did and the starting salary expectations for the position, then set up an in-person interview. I met with two very nice employees, passionate and proud about their work. As someone inexperienced in interview situations, it was a relaxed and low-stress environment. A week later they emailed informing me the position had been filled.

    I had a wonderful interviewing experience. I applied at one of the worst times, the weekend before Thanksgiving, but received a personalized reply soon after that my application was under review. From then on the lines of communication were very open and the recruiter was honest about the time frame and what they needed from me. The interviewers were very direct, knowledgeable, and able to answer any and all questions. Overall this was a very god interviewing experience.

    3 interviews in a row, the first two are phone interviews because the headquarter of the company is based in DC. The last interview is one-to-one in NY.
