    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.

    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.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Balboa Capital (Jacksonville, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    This interview was scheduled by a recruiter who is not in the area. We spoke several times over the phone and she asked me various questions in regards to my background/employment. They set up an interview several days later with Eric Mandela who is the manager at the Jacksonville location he was very thorough and answered all of my questions. He was also very honest about the commission structure and has a long history in this business. Awaiting interview result.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Balboa Capital.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by a recruiter 10 days later who was very professional and answered my questions reasonably well. Set up an interview for the following week.

    First part of the interview was fairly straight forward with the sales manager. He told me about the position, how it entailed 200 cold calls a day, what you would be doing on those calls, and a little bit about the culture of the company. He did not sugar coat anything and specifically mentioned that the job is tedious and full of "grunt work" but that if you get through your calls you'll be fine. He mentioned that the person I would be working under was a "hard a**" and that I would be speaking to him in 20 minutes or so. I understand the job would suck and was willing to deal with it to get a paycheck while I looked for something better.

    I go into that person's office for the second part of the interview and immediately regretted it. The person is leaning back in his chair, shoes off, hands behind his head stroking his hair, chewing on something, and was wearing a gaudy paisley print shirt. His appearance alone was enough of a sign of disrespect for me to want to leave. He spoke 100 miles an hour in a monotone and barely kept eye contact, as if it was beneath him to show some professionalism to a prospective employee.
