Mission: We believe that lending is critical to the success of community banks and that the most important conversation a lender has with a borrower is about pricing. We’re passionate about developing tools that make that conversation successful for the borrower AND the bank ...
I have been working at PrecisionLender full-time (More than a year)
· Colleagues: When I am asked about my favorite thing about PL, I always say "the people." Everyone here is smart, curious and kind, and I am consistently learning about new topics or business strategies from others.
· Leadership: The leadership team is approachable, transparent and inspiring – if you’ve ever heard our CEO speak, you’ll agree that those three characteristics come across loud and clear.
· Professional Growth: As a nimble, growing company, every day at PL is unlike the last. Each person is pushed to try new things and take on new professional challenges.
· Flexibility: PL employees are given a lot of freedom in working remotely where needed. There is no need to stress about waiting for a delivery at home or working remotely an extra day to accommodate better travel logistics. We also have a very generous time off policy that allows us to take as much time as we need throughout the year to see family, clear our heads, etc.
We have a very purposeful and deliberate hiring process, which means bringing on new people often takes a long time -- in a rapidly growing company that can be discouraging. However, the process allows us to be sure we've made the right choice and gives the candidate ample time to get to know PL and be confident in their decision to come aboard.
Advice to Management
I know this is important to you already, but keep doing everything you can to retain the culture as we grow.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PrecisionLender (Raleigh, NC (US)) in March 2018.
I applied for the position over a month ago. I appreciated that they didn't just ask for a resume to be sent in but rather asked questions so the candidate could elaborate on their experience and personality. The application, if done mindfully, takes over an hour to complete, however upon submitting the application, I received the standard resume acceptance confirmation email. I then waited over a month to receive some feedback and all I received was a canned, "thank you for applying but we are not going to move forward at this time" email.
If you are going to request that good candidates take the time to give thoughtful replies to questions just to start the interview process, that good candidate deserves a timely response and some feedback instead of just being blown off.
