    Sales Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at National Federation of Independent Business in June 2010.

    Interview

    Initial phone contact only describes the postion and acts as a filter to determine if the candidate wants to proceed. This initial contact and the subsequent phone interview were done with the same recruiter whom I never met in person. The phone interview was not complex or difficult. Afterward, I took an online questionnaire/personality profile. A couple weeks later I met a more local district or regional manager for an in-person interview. This interview is the one I rate as difficult. It seemed very methodical in the way I was asked questions. I wouldn't be surprised if all interviews for this same position are the same. If I had been successful in that interview, I would have been asked back for a second in-person interview. But, alas, twas not to be.

    State Director Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at National Federation of Independent Business in February 2010.

    Interview

    The interview was largely behavioral, asking for my impressions or wide ranging topics and what different ideas "mean to me". My resume was completely ignored, as it was expected that I provide my experience through story telling that fit the interviewer's needs. I felet the interview went well, but was not offered the position.
