    Any hire is a process of negotiation! Based on experience and position. This person knows how to interview- most don't!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Smart Meetings (Sausalito, CA).

    Interview

    Phone screening. Psychological profile (that is easy to trick). In person interview. Husband and wife ownership try to play off each other (good cop/bad cop) but they are not very effective. They will parade you around the office and other staff looks at you like you are meat. Annoying dog will lick your shoes.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Take it or leave it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Smart Meetings (Sausalito, CA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Met with advertising manager, publisher and "CFO" (publisher's husband).

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Didn't negotiate anything. Don't work here unless you have a tolerance for insults, demoralization, lame office with barking dogs that come to work with the publisher and CFO, long days 12-26 hours) of travelling by plane and car with little or no return, unrealistic meal expenses, and no growth or advancement potential. There is no plan in place as to what is being done to market the product, which is primarily a slick-looking monthly magazine for the meeting planning community. Advertising from hotels, convention bureaus, casinos with hotels and meeting rooms. The sales staff is back-biting and underhanded. the company plays a shell game with sales by changing budgets and goals and keeping you on the road so no goals are met and commissions stay lower than the potential you're told you can make. Run away as fast as you can from the idea of working at this sweat shop.
