Much like our mission to change the mortgage industry from what it is, to what it should be, Homeside is committed to doing the same for your career. No matter your career level, Homeside will move your career from where it is, to where it should be. The leadership with Homeside strives to give each employee a career path versus a job. To make that reality, we have developed an industry leading internal university program, which will provide training, coaching, and mentorship to all.
Christopher Kirkpatrick shows us a typical day in his life as a Senior Loan Officer for Homeside Financial. "The amount of operational staff compared to other places that I’ve worked is par none, having those resources really allows me to grow." #TeamHomeside
I have been working at Homeside Financial full-time
Awesome company, they love their employees
Not a great industry to be in at the moment
Advice to Management
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Homeside Financial (Columbus, OH) in June 2016.
This was a two part interview for a mid to senior level developer position. There likely would have been an initial phone interview, but I was referred by a recruiter.
Part 1 -- A face-to-face meeting with the head of the IT department. Mostly a "social" fit, with the conversation mostly around past jobs/experience, a few hypothetical situations and how I would handle them, and some open ended tech questions that don't really have right or wrong answers.
Mostly a litmus test for:
- General gauge of experience and past work
- Ability to talk and walk through thought process
- Receptive to feedback, comments, and dissenting opinions
- Soft skills
Part 2 -- Code kata (off-site) + demo (on-site). A loosely defined code kata that was similar to a project a currently working dev was chipping away at.
o Win Service (process concurrent tasks)
o Styled "Portal"
o Basic CRUD (create, read, update, delete)
- Asked detailed questions to flush out spec further
- Roughly a week to complete at leisure
- 4-8 hours of work for something nice; more if you really wanted to polish it up
- Speak to code and decisions
- "What would you have done differently if you'd had more time?" etc
Definitely prefer this kind of interview to an in-person "Code day" where you really feel the heat.
