    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Foothill Ranch, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at loanDepot (Foothill Ranch, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, and their senior corporate IT recruiter contacted me back and had a phone interview. He asked me a few technical questions about C#, like about an access modifier, inheriting from class or interfaces, and big O notation for hashtable.
    Then had second phone interview, with a senior software engineer. He went through an interactive scenario, about troubleshooting the slow response time for a ZIP code validator. It was a neat exercise to explain my thoughts, but he didn't seem satisfied with my response about implementing it in C# instead of the database. Maybe he preferred more concrete detail, to which I would have suggested using a sorted dictionary and LINQ or search algorithm.
    I got a called back the next business day from the corporate recruiter saying I wasn't strong enough in the technical exercise. I never made it to the onsite interview(s). They were nice and tried to be helpful on the phone, which I appreciate.

    Software Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Very smooth process. Phone screen of "design a system" followed by a three and a half hour onsite with four people.

    Good mix of questions, seems like all interviewees communicated with each other so one was design heavy, two were code/white boarding heavy and another was mainly asking about my background.

    However, after answering most of the technical questions, I got the sense that I wasn't perceived to be a good fit. Lots of questions such as "do you want to do this kind of work? Your resume shows you do other types of things", or "are you certain you'd be happy doing this job?"

    Slightly unusual and eventually got a vague response from a recruiter that they were going a different direction. Most companies I interview at try to convince me to want to work there regardless of my fit, where as Loan Depot seemed perplexed why I was even interviewing for the job...

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at loanDepot (Irvine, CA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    3 hour in-person interview, one hr by each interviewer. The office is very nice, brand new office. The technical interview was an easy one, along with behaviorial questions. One interviewer mentioned there is not a real need for full stack developer there, which was a big turn off.
