I have been working at loanDepot full-time (Less than a year)
At loanDepot you will work hard. When you are at work you’re expected to work, if that’s not for you that’s okay. If you want a job to work 9-5 with no stress this is not the position for you. If you want to work hard you have unlimited income and growth potential. All that said, my personal experience at loanDepot is one of compassion. I am a women in a male predominant industry. I am also a single mom. My job is not easy but that is the business not loanDepot. My personal experience with management though is understanding. If you are willing to work for loanDepot they are willing to work for you. You will get out of it what you put into it. You can be “all in” and management will do the same.
loanDepot is not for those that want to show up and count the hours until they are off work. You have to want the opportunity, and take advantage of it.
Advice to Management
Own who you are and what you are. LoanDepot is one of the few companies that really does offer the American dream for those that want it. It bleeds down to how they do their business. You offer people hope both on the customer side and the employee side and I wish there was more both internally and externally to share those stories. They are powerful and worth sharing.
I applied online. I interviewed at loanDepot (Foothill Ranch, CA) in September 2017.
I applied online, and their senior corporate IT recruiter contacted me back and had a phone interview. He asked me a few technical questions about C#, like about an access modifier, inheriting from class or interfaces, and big O notation for hashtable.
Then had second phone interview, with a senior software engineer. He went through an interactive scenario, about troubleshooting the slow response time for a ZIP code validator. It was a neat exercise to explain my thoughts, but he didn't seem satisfied with my response about implementing it in C# instead of the database. Maybe he preferred more concrete detail, to which I would have suggested using a sorted dictionary and LINQ or search algorithm.
I got a called back the next business day from the corporate recruiter saying I wasn't strong enough in the technical exercise. I never made it to the onsite interview(s). They were nice and tried to be helpful on the phone, which I appreciate.
