IS THE LSI ACADEMY FOR ME?
Who is eligible to apply? Our ACADEMY in the financial services industry sets the standard. The program is tailored to applicants who are passionate about investing in themselves, to build their career. Previous financial services experience is not necessary to apply. Among the elements we evaluate are passion, positive attitude, hard working and motivation for joining the ACADEMY.
Do I need to have a college degree? No, we conduct several interviews during the admission process, which could lead to an invitation for our on-campus tour. We also ask applicants to take a few skill tests to determine their probability for success in our program.
I don’t have financial services experience; is this for me? Most of our ACADEMY graduates did not have previous financial services experience. Recent classes have included those whom were previously employed in retail, quick and fast service restaurants, call centers, as well as credit unions and community banks. All of them share these common traits – a desire to increase their income, build a career and a willingness to help people.
Is it just for those who have previous job experience? Most of our students do not have previous financial services experience and some never previously had a paying job. We believe passion, a positive attitude and the willingness to work hard, is far more important than previous job experience.
Can you tell me more about the curriculum? The LSI ACADEMY is an approximately 6 week course. Our innovative program is tailored to those who want to improve their skills and build a career in the financial services industry. We combine a traditional class environment with hands-on training. Our students spend several hours in mentoring, learning the unique demands of working in the financial services industry. In the course of the program, students will learn from experts in fields like customer service, debt management and loans, who breathe life into the curriculum with relevant real-world examples.
Will I receive Benefits? Yes, all employees working 20 hours or more will be eligible for benefits, including health insurance. As an employee owned company (ESOP), we work hard to keep you secure and healthy.
What shifts are available for LSI employees? Our offices are open 99.5% of the year. So, we have round the clock full and part-time shift opportunities, as well as work-from-home.
What is an LSI career? Our ACADEMY graduates have a variety of career paths they can take. Our top performers are eligible for continued training classes, which enable them to add additional skills, or advance into a management role.
What skills will I learn during my career at LSI? Our employees learn a wide variety of skills, from helping people with questions about their account, to assessing a person’s credit for a personal loan, to assisting with real estate mortgage transactions. Through our LSI Leadership Development program, employees are also taught management skills which include interpersonal communication, conflict resolution, goal setting and team building.
