    I worked at Provident Funding full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They hire people who are looking for careers. They teach you from the ground up; You get a 2 week training program where you learn everything about the company history, the platform, and product knowledge. You spend 2-6 months in servicing role depending on your work ethic. Take as many calls as you can. From there you can move into nearly any department you want too. They are really about helping the employee find their niche. Really great team structure; you always have someone to assist with any problems. Pay increases regularly with time put in.

    Cons

    Very corporate feel. but its mortgages not a brewery. Work environment as quite as a Church. Some people like a more ambiance. 8-5 job hours with lack of leniency.

    Lack of interaction from Leadership in news and agenda of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Would advise better atmosphere for employees. Would create greater incentive for people wanting to stay long term.

    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.
