    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at New York Partners (New York, NY) in July 2010.

    Interview

    After applying for the position advertised on Craigslist, I was emailed and invited to attend a one-on-one interview, which was a basic question and answer about me professionally - my strengths, where I had been and what I was looking for next.

    I was called back for a second interview to attend an 'observation day' which turned out to be going out to the 'field' to observe one of the 'Training Coordinators' in action... essentially this was a very well disguised sales role, a 'cold', office-to-office sales job, pitching one of a few different campaigns... office supplies, phone contracts, credit cards, etc.... all under the guise of a 'management training program'.

    And the real catch is they take you all the way out to Queens, or the Bronx or wherever it might be for the day before they unveil the full nature of the job, which I found to be quite deceitful. Particularly since it was such a contradiction to the job description that was advertised.

    As a sales role, working for the company would have been fine. And from a client's perspective, NY Partners would be a perfectly feasible part of the marketing mix as a way of building face-to-face relations with prospective customers. However, I found the method of hiring and interviewing utterly deceptive, and was really displeased with how time-wasting the process was.

    Reasons for Declining

    Because I made my objections with the process known, it was a mutual agreement that I didn't want to work for the company, and they obviously decided because I was unhappy with the sales element, the major component of the job, that I wasn't suitable.
