    Interview

    Basically, they find applicants who have posted their resumes to job posting websites and call them back. I do not even believe they checked my resume and after sitting down and speaking with the CEO and assistant manager, they basically told me how I will be making six-figures within a few years. Sounded like a sales pitch to find job applicants; in fact just plain desperate. Very few people actually stuck through the training and advance on from what I recall.

    Interview Questions

    • I first received a call to come in for an in-person interview thinking it was a company I originally applied to; they received my resume from Monster.com. They say they’re a marketing and consulting firm but really it is simply door-to-door sales. I was a little bit put off but have been desperate for work since graduating from college recently. I figured I would gain some experience and money while looking for other places so I figured, “how bad could it be?” Boy was I wrong.
      After a few days, my interviewer took me to the field where we conducted our sales pitch to various prospective customers. After a few hours, she told me we had to make a stop in NE DC where her boyfriend (also an employee) lived. She left me in the car for quite some time and when she came back, clearly she was inebriated. Her entire demeanor changed and this quickly became the most unprofessional interview I had ever had. Needless-to-say I did not return after that point.

    The interviewer was extremely unprofessional. In addition to the above, she spent most of the time on the phone on personal calls. The topics should not have been spoken about in front of fellow employees let alone someone who was interviewing.

    Interview

    I was called by Rachel and scheduled my first round interview. Met with Mark Hoge for about 10 minutes he asked me about myself we talked about sports, volunteering, school, weather, traffic. They really just wanted to see if I was professional and if I could carry on a conversation.

    2nd Round interview someone took me to grab a soda (don't drink coffee). Explained compensation, timeframe, and job responsibilities. Then asked me 8 -10 questions. Then did the final round interview with Yasmine. Then I was allowed to go for the day. Offered the position the next day.

    Interview

    I applied via linkedin with a resume drop. The next morning they called and wanted me to come in for a interview. First day was a quick 1:1 interview with the assistant manager, then the 2nd day was a followup with two Team leaders who took me out to lunch. I was originally suppose to shadow them on their days work that day but the rain gave us other plans and the interview was cut short.

    Reasons for Declining

    The job description didn't match up to what I would really be doing. It seemed like a really fishy triangle scheme that I didn't want to get involved in, and the starting pay was something aroudn $300 a week which is hardly enough to pay rent in the Northern Virginia area.

    I applied online – interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting.

    Interview

    My first interview was super quick and everyone was very nice and outgoing but they didn't give me very much description about the job. I was brought in for a second interview and surprised my going door to door selling, not my thing, and wish they would have told me beforehand so I didn't waste my whole day.

    Interview

    As I was searching for a job on twitter I saw a tweet referencing a job at Zerin. I sent them a direct message and applied for the position. I received a response and set up an interview time to meet with the president of the company. The interview was short and sweet and to the point. Any advice for the interviewing process would be to collect your thoughts on basic interview questions before you go in for the interview. They did not ask anything crazy or make you do any type of testing. Just be yourself.

    Interview

    I am currently in the restaurant industry looking for a change and some advancement opportunity. I noticed a job ad for an entry level position on Monster.com one day after work. I thought that I would give it a shot and sent my resume over. The following day after work I had a missed call from someone in the Human Resources department at Zerin. I set up an interview to meet with them on my day off. I made sure to have my resume all set and printed ready for the interview. I would definitely make sure that you have a resumes with you, even if they do not ask for one just so you look prepared. Also everyone in the office was dressed very professional in full suits so I would make sure that you are wearing your very best. I have always heard to dress for the position you want, not the one you have. The interview itself was not too difficult. Just basic questions you would expect in any interview. I was invited back for another interview and I am looking forward to going next week.

    I saw a posting for the entry level position on craigslist. I applied and a couple days later received a phone call. They went over some brief questions with me on the phone then called me back and invited me in for an interview. I went in the following week and met with the president of the company. It was just a basic interview it seemed more like he just wanted to put a name with a face and get to know my personality. He had already looked at my resume so he did not ask many questions off of it. He invited me back for another interview the next day which I was looking forward to but that evening I received another call from a contract I had been waiting to go through so I passed on the follow up interview.
