    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...

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied and within a few days I get a call telling me I don't have enough enough experience. The recruiter then continued to ask me if I even read the job req. I explained I have more than enough banking experience and education to handle this role. She then stated I don't even have enough experience to work as a processor. LOL this company is a joke. Horribly ran. HR needs to learn how to speak to people and understand the industry better.

    Executive Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at loanDepot in February 2018.

    Interview

    I was flown in for a series of meetings on a very specific topic and role after numerous calls and emails with a C level executive member.

    After four on-site meetings, we discussed next steps - and then I was ghosted. Zero information. If you don't want me just say so, this is for a senior position, I can handle it. Eventually a recruiter called me to say they don't know what their next step is. The C level exec I was communicating with should put on his big boy pants and make a call. Is this normal for this company? That is abhorrent behavior and representative of the arrogance that pervasive in the culture, not to mention immature and rude.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at loanDepot (Foothill Ranch, CA).

    If you know someone in the company who is in the clique then the interview is just a formality. You can fail their tests and you are still in.

    Application

    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.

    This was actually my 5th time interviewing with them. The first time was a series of 2 interviews that were a month apart, didnt get the offer, the second time was another 2 series of interviews, that they determined I would be a fit for the position that I had originally interviewed for. This time around, I got the interview and not even a week later I get an email stating the position is on hold. Im done applying with this company.
