How it started

I have an unusual way of looking at the world. My wife, Sharon, says I'm weird, and, truthfully, I am weird. But there's a reason. Starting from nothing, by the time I was 26 I had a net worth of a little over a million dollars. I was making $250,000 a year. That's more than $20,000 a month net taxable income. I was really having fun. But 98% truth is a lie. That 2% can cause big problems, especially with $4 million in real estate. I had a lot of debt—a lot of short-term debt—and I'm the idiot who signed up for the trip.

The short version of the story is that debt caused us, over the course of two and a half years of fighting it, to lose everything. We didn't tell anyone what was going on, but if we had to do it again, we would learn from the wisdom of others who have been through it. We soon learned that we were not the only ones at the bottom. Barbie and Ken (you know, the couple who appear to be perfect—perfect clothes, perfect car, perfect house) are broke, and I don't take financial advice from broke people anymore.

On the way up

After losing everything, I went on a quest to find out how money really works, how I could take control of it, and how I could have confidence in handling it. I read everything I could get my hands on. I interviewed older rich people—people who made money and kept it. That quest led me to a really, really uncomfortable place: my mirror. I came to realize that my money problems, worries and shortages largely began and ended with the person in my mirror. I also realized that if I could learn to manage the character I shaved with every morning, I would win with money. I went back to my first love, real estate, to eat and to get out of debt. Along the way, I began another path—the path of helping others, literally millions of others, take the same quest to the mirror.

Starting Ramsey Solutions

I formed Ramsey Solutions in 1992 to counsel folks hurting from the results of financial stress. I’ve paid the “stupid tax” (mistakes with dollar signs on the end) so hopefully some of you won't have to. I wrote the book Financial Peace based on all that Sharon and I had learned, and I began selling it out of my car. With a friend of mine, I started a local radio call-in show called The Money Game, now nationally syndicated as The Dave Ramsey Show.

Our company history is full of landmarks, including six best-sellers on the New York TimesWall Street Journal and Publishers Weekly lists—and we're not slowing down. Ramsey Solutions now has more than 600 team members and a variety of products and services to help you reach your financial goals.

Many companies define success based on the dollars coming in, but at Ramsey Solutions, we define our success by the number of lives changed: listeners getting out of debt, readers taking their first Baby Step and saving $1,000, Financial Peace University graduates investing for their future. We learned early on that if we help enough people, the money will come. Our mission statement isn't just lip service—it's our mantra:

Ramsey Solutions provides biblically based, common-sense education and empowerment that give HOPE to everyone in every walk of life.

    Pros

    800 ppl on fire for helping ppl outside these walls. Leaders that care deeply about the teams they serve. A CEO that has tons of energy and tells us so much about why this company exists and where things are headed. Pay is super competitive and the place is growing so fast that it's easy to move up if you are a go getter. This place isn't for everyone...if you aren't into the mission of the place, keep your mall job because this place is way too fast paced and competitive.

    Cons

    Cramped space...800 ppl in 5 buildings (bldings are a bike ride from each other). New campus on 50 acres ready in 2019.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let up on this crazy awesome culture as we approach 1000 ppl soon. And as we all wrote in our yearbooks, "don't ever change!"

    Computer Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Franklin, TN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ramsey Solutions (Franklin, TN) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Make sure before they offer you a "seat on the bus" that you really want to be on that bus.

    The interview process at the Ramsey company is famous for the length of the process. It is not unusual to have 15 separate interviews, initially by phone or video, then in-person, and then a few more which can even include a "spousal" interview. The reason for the interview process is to make sure that the candidate and the employer share the same belief system. In my opinion, Ramsey seems to care less about your technical abilities and care more about the cultural fit. The technical interview process was literally a piece of cake. But I have seen this throughout the South and I think it is just a fact of not being on the East or West Coast that the standards are very easy to pass.

    Again, the Ramsey organization is not a very technology savvy company but it is a very friendly company if your friends include the people you sit next to at church. The Ramsey organization runs on a biblically based system and if you are the type of person that believes in a higher power then it may be the place for you. However, if that is not your cup of tea then it might be a very difficult place to work and/or even get hired into.
