    I have been working at OppLoans full-time (Less than a year)


    Everything. Literally. From the interview to the training, the people, the perks, the culture. I absolutely LOVE IT. Management makes sure to not only tell you but SHOW you how much they truly care about you. I’ve been there a fairly short time and already we’ve had a summer party where they closed work early for us, fully catered, full open bar at a VERY nice venue, in office massages, in office gelato, new hire lunch with the CEO, daily lunch stipend with free delivery, and countless other wonderful things.


    I really don’t have one!

    Advice to Management

    Just keep up the good work. The culture, the way we operate only makes us want to excel and work harder

    Sr. Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at OppLoans (Chicago, IL) in November 2017.


    The first step was a technical phone screen, that included hands-on coding with the interviewer (dev manager) observing and asking questions.

    I was brought into the office a few days later for a series of interviews, that went as follows:
    1. Junior engineer did another hands-on coding test, and followed up with a few perfunctory questions about my resume and my experience. Left without giving me an opportunity to ask any questions.
    2. With the development manager, whiteboarded the design of a program to simulate a common board game.
    3. Two senior engineers came in to ask tough questions to determine my language knowledge and experience. One was very distracted, constantly on slack throughout the interview, and even got up to leave for part of it. I again had no opportunity to ask questions.
    4. CTO came in to ask about database design.

    The interviews were scheduled for 1-4, but I did not leave until after 5:30.
