Springleaf is a typical consumer finance company. You have a pretty regular schedule, 8:30-5 except for Tuesdays which are 8:30-7. Saturdays occasionally, in the morning. The clientele is sub-prime, so the main focus of managers is to crush everyone with a 36% interest rate. Some customers deserve it, but others do not.
There is no loyalty in the company. Managers and district managers will treat you like a pawn and send you to offices all over the district when people are out, and then get on you about your numbers being lower after they took you out of your home office for sometimes an extended period. Your performance is solely on loan production, even the positions advertised as preparing for a management role. All they care about is how many loans you make.
And they will promise you career opportunities, but that is a lie. The only promotions available are to branch manager and to district manager, and you basically have to wait for someone to quit or get fired, then compete with 15 other people who were waiting it out as well. Your basically stuck in the front line position for years, at the least. And this is not the type of place that you can switch departments.
If you want a paycheck, they will give you that, although with terrible benefits (lacking, expensive medical; 3% company match (not up to 3% of your contribution, they only match 3 cents on the dollar)). Other than that it is a repetitive, mindless job that doesn't offer much in terms of career development or marketable skills.
decent pay, simple work
no loyalty, extremely limited career potential, no horizontal mobility
