    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Costa Mesa, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Balboa Capital (Costa Mesa, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Sent in my resume, they got back to me quickly. Went in for the interview, did a 45 minute interview, went great. Then I was told they were just training someone on how to do interviews, and my real one would start in about 15 minutes. I had to cancel an appointment I had after. The next interview was very dry, he seemed disinterested in doing it, and told me they start at $30k instead of $35k like in their ad, and also that most people don't make commission for a few months before the pipeline is built. I was irritated at this, he told me he would be happy to have me come in for a working interview as the next step before they hired me. I told him I wasn't interested in working for them. They emailed me a week later to still try and set up the working interview. I politely declined.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Balboa Capital (Irvine, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I first met with the branch manager for about 30 minutes. He asked some basic questions, nothing difficult. I then met with one of the account managers. Both guys I met with made unrealistic promises about how much money I would make. The interviewer quickly turned into a recruiter.

    Junior Credit Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Balboa Capital (Irvine, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly organized and not too long. The campus is very nice. You usually wait outside for someone to interview you. The conference room is fairly large, but office seems to be a little compact. Parking is not free, but they give you a stamp. However, I got a stamp and still ended up paying $3. Make sure you overestimate your time there, so you don't have to pay for parking!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Balboa Capital (Irvine, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Friendly. The Interviewer and HR worked well together in getting me to the place and the follow up was good. He was engaging. The building and area was nice, the employees seemed friendly inside their cubes. All males. I got a Boiler Room type of vibe in the room. It seemed like it would be a good entry level job to get some experience assuming you could work in that type of environment.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Balboa Capital.

    Interview

    They mainly focused on the interviewee's ability to make over 200 calls a day. If you were able to do this then it pretty much was a green light.

    Another coworker of mine said his interview was a series of 3 questions:
    1. Can you make 200 calls a day?
    2. Are you afraid of making sales?
    3. Are you afraid of me?

    It went something like that anyway.
