    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at OneMain Financial.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews mainly covering what I had done in the past. No technical questions. Final was an in-person interview at their headquarters in Evensville Indiana. That was about describing the job and meeting the managers.

    Reasons for Declining

    I had two other offers. SpringLeaf made a good one but the other was closer to my home.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at OneMain Financial.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter. Typical phone screen followed by a coding challenge. Coding challenge was pretty standard. You need to know how to write an API and specify endpoints.

    The main problem I had with this company was the lack of communication. I spent roughly 6-8 hours on this challenge. It worked. It met all criteria. It had full test coverage. I turned it in. Hear nothing for a full week and a half. I then receive a two sentence automated email saying they're not moving forward with the interview.

    Rejection happens. I get it. But WHY was the challenge not accepted? If someone is going to spend 6-8 hours of their own free time on a challenge you provided, the very least you can do is provide 2-4 sentences as to why it was not sufficient. Were the tests written bad? Were you looking for something else? Are there not enough endpoints? Who knows! And I'll never know since they treat potential employees like a number in a database.

    Interview Questions

    • Phone screen was typical. Why you want to work here, previous experience, etc.   Answer Question

    Collector Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Mill, SC (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at OneMain Financial (Fort Mill, SC (US)) in November-2016.

    Interview

    It was a STAR based interview process after briefly discussing my employment history and qualifications. They love prior experience so make sure to talk about how awesome you are at collections. The interview scenarios were long and exhausting, making things up centered around the question is hard when you have to do it 15 times. Took about an hour. I received a call a week later with the offer. All paperwork and background check is online.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me a time when you had a dispute with a co worker and how did you resolve it?   Answer Question

    Collector Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at OneMain Financial (Charlotte, NC (US)).

    Interview

    Had a phone screening and was scheduled for an interview. Interview was rescheduled with recruiter, and after showing up for the rescheduled interview and sitting in lobby for about 10 minutes, the interviewer came down and told me she doesn’t do reschedules and would not be doing interviews that day. That was completely unprofessional and I would hope that the company does not do business in that fashion nor do I hope they treat their employees in that same manner. Stay away.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at OneMain Financial (Covington, GA (US)) in October-2017.

    Interview

    Was called by HR and did phone interview and was sent to branch to interview with branch mgr and that went well. was advised she would review and determine to refer to dist mgr for further interview. About week later was called in to interview with dist mgr and he was not the most personable individual and was told one way or another would hear back from someone in regards to the position as he did not like to just to leave someone wondering about it and felt it was best to tell them. of course never did hear back from anyone in regards to the position. in my opinion that is just really poor communication especially from someone who is a dist mgr and to make that statement.
