    I have been working at Stearns Lending full-time


    Great Culture, Great work life balance. Leadership, in regards to my team have always been transparent about the status of the company and the industry. Whenever leadership has mentioned glassdoor and reviews they have always said be honest and let us know where the company succeeds and where the company struggles. Never have the told us to come and write positive reviews to grow our rating. This is a great place to work, my co-workers are amazing, and I feel purpose within my position.


    Benefits are not the greatest but they suffice.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication open from the top down. Really appreciate Brian's talks about the company and the industry.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Stearns Lending (Cranston, RI) in March 2017.


    I had to take 3 multiple choice tests and answer 50 questions during this 2.5 hour long interview. The Company owner was very polite and professional he totally knew exactly what he was looking for in terms of the type of person he wanted to work for him. He had a detailed sheet with all of the work that was to be completed for the position available.
