    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I sent in my resume & then took time out of a vacation to come in for an interview. The interview went well & everyone was friendly--I thought. Turns out they were apparently concerned that I didn't have positive things to say about my current employer. That's an odd concern given that I'm trying to leave. LendingClub then contacted my current employer and mentioned that I didn't have positive things to say about it!!! That has really hurt my current position. As icing on the cake they didn't bother sending me any sort of follow up, their HR also seems flaky. LendingClub poses itself as an alternative to big banks but most of its rapidly-expanding staff comes from big bank backgrounds and that mentality seems to be prevalent.

    Java Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westborough, MA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at LendingClub (Westborough, MA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    This is probably the worst interview experience I've ever had. The recruiter at Westborough MA site pinged me multiple times to see if I was interested. When I decided to give them a shot, the nightmare began. The recruiter first failed to call me at scheduled time whithout any notice. Only after I asked her if she wanted to rechedule she agreed to call at another time. And once more, then she was late for 15min and said the conversation had to be cut short. Ok, I was fine with that. Chatted for a few minutes and she asked me if I had any questions. I asked a couple of questions and she said she would get back to me. Never did. I asked if she wanted to start the process. And then she said the managers he managers have decided to move forward with other candidates.

    Talked with my friend. He told me he also got pinged by the recruiter and had exactly same experience. What a joke.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at LendingClub (San Francisco, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The technical phone screen was one hour long. The interviewer was really nice and calm. He covered all the basic questions about Rest API, HashMaps, SQL queries. He would ask me questions on one topic until I would not know the answer to something. In algorithms he asked me to write a program on CoderPad for reversing a LinkedList. The guy was helping me find the solution. He was more focused on my approach towards the solution not the final answer. Overall, it was a good experience.

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at LendingClub (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Phone interview was OK, all the rounds / interviewers were good except the Director guy, who showed up 25 minutes after the scheduled time with some lame excuse and he is outright rigid and kept asking the same question of why LendingClub; your recruiter has contacted me on LinkedIn, I didn’t apply for it.

    LendingClub is Java heavy and they don’t care about your problem solving skills if you don’t know the frameworks they use.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at LendingClub (San Francisco, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Its standard. Phone screen followed by onsite. A few technical rounds followed by management rounds. Management pays a lot of focus on where you previously worked. If you are from saleforce you have a good chance of making it through.
