    Pipeline Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Provident Funding (Bellevue, WA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    It is a pretty general interview.
    First you have a phone call interview where they just want to talk to you and see who you are and hear about some of the things you have done and what you are interested in.
    If you passe this, you will reach the actual interview. Why you want to work for them, what are your strengths, weaknesses, a difficult challenge you overcame, how you manage your time, what do you think would make you good at this position, and do you have any questions for them. They also ask a question about past experiences with previous managers. This is a test to see how you will speak about behind their backs, make sure not to say anything negative about them because if you do this is how they then will assume you will act towards them. Pretty straightforward but just something to be cognizant of during the interview.

    If you pass this interview you will make it to a secondary interview, I can not give more information on this at the current moment because I have not had the second interview yet. My biggest suggestion is to remember that they aren't just interviewing you but you are also interviewing them to see if they are a company that you want to work for and to decide if you think the company is the overall right fit for you both as a career and corporate culture.

    Interview Questions

    • None of these questions were too difficult. Possibly research standard interview questions and good ways to turn questions that could be answered negatively into positive statements about yourself and those you work with.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    This simply was not the type of career path that I was interested in.

    Pipeline Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Provident Funding.

    Interview

    Phone interview.
    Very nice and told me to look at Glassdoor, where I quickly realized it was a poor culture. I did more research and found several negative reviews from both customers and employees. I chose to not continue the interview process of visiting the office and speaking face to face. Could be a good place for others, not the place for me.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing out of the ordinary. I did not do the face to face interview though.   Answer Question

    Pipeline Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Provident Funding (Dallas, TX) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I applied via my college website. I had an ok experience. First a phone interview, then a panal interview. Only one individual spoke and two other people were texting. The individual who did speak was friendly. Turned me off when he asked what other job offers I had and how much of a salary they had offered me. Overall a neutral experience. Not good but not bad some cute girls work there that is about it.

    Interview Questions

    • What other job offers do you have and what salary have they offered you? It was a very unexpected question and kind of unprofessional. Its none of your business.   Answer Question

    Client Service Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Rosa, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Provident Funding (Santa Rosa, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Interview process was very fast. I submitted an online application via my college job posting website. From there I was contacted and scheduled an introduction phone call. The call was brief; lasted 20 minutes in all. It was a description of myself and what I was looking for in my job hunt/career. The phone portion went well and I was asked to come on site. I completed a two person interview with the same person I spoke on the Phone and the head of the Branch. office. The interview in all lasted about 45 minutes. Again questions about my background which was limited since I was coming out of college. PF does a great job of recruiting college students to work there. The interview was fast and easy, I felt comfortable the entire time. Be sure to answer where you see yourself in the future.

    I received an offer within the next few days via phone call. I accepted the offer after a days thought.
