I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting in February 2013.

Interview Details – Straightforward quick first interview. Second interview goes over pay scale and advancement. Everyone is nice and willing to answer questions and they all seem to genuinely care about the company and the people there.

Entry Level
McLean, VA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting in December 2013.

Interview Details – It's a very fast process. I applied online and received an interview offer within a handful of days. I interviewed directly with the hiring manager then came into the office for in person job shadow. The people I interviewed with were really terrific. Some of the higher ups have strong personalities and are very blunt about the requirements and position which takes a little getting used to.

Entry Level Executive Interview

Entry Level Executive

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting in December 2013.

Interview Details – Got a call from one of their recruiters. She seemed sweet, but it was way too obvious she was reading from a script. Still, I set up an interview. The fact that she sounded like a telemarketer did not comfort me-- it instantly made me understand that if she has to read from a script, this company churns through lots of salespeople. Assuming their turnover is that high, it's very likely this "Entry Level Management" position is nothing more than a glorified sales position. I also surmised she needed a script because the company doesn't want her saying too much about the job, which is a major red flag. (I'd asked if the position was salary, salary plus commission or strictly commission. This was a very direct question. She said that it was a "mixture" of all three during training and asked if that answered my question. Seriously? I laughed and told her it sounded rather vague to me.)

Did a little digging, and sure enough: it's door-to-door sales for Verizon Fios. Plus, I found out they are pretty much only commission. Judging from the other GD reviews, sounds like I would've had to pay for my own gas to get to and fro these appointments with "warm" (not) leads, too. No thanks.

I promptly cancelled my appointment after learning the aforementioned info.

Interview Question – The only question I can remember is if Tysons Corner is an okay drive for me. Everything else the interviewer said was an attempt to sell me on the company and the job "opportunity."   Answer Question

Junior Executive Interview

Junior Executive
Tysons Corner, VA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting.

Interview Details – They called me up very fast and said they were moving forward with my application which drew some suspicion. I went into the first interview and could tell this was a joke. The interview was really easy. The interviewer asked what I like to do for fun, which seemed unprofessional. I tried to ask more about the position but we tried really hard to go around it.
Turns out it was just a door to door sales jobs they try to to get suckers to hire.

Junior Executive Interview

Junior Executive
McLean, VA

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting in June 2013.

Interview Details – I submitted my resume to this job posting at Zerin via Indeed.com. I was contacted for a quick screening call within three days, after which time we arranged a one-on-one in person interview. Most of this interview was spent reviewing my resume and talking about Zerin's door-to-door direct marketing strategy. Within a day I was invited for a second-round interview, which consisted of shadowing current Zerin employees as they walked door to door in a neighborhood targeted for their current marketing campaign. Be ready to answer interview questions throughout this period during down time and at lunch. Also, try to engage with residents even if current Zerin employees dominate the conversation. After a few hours of walking door to door we returned to Zerin's office for a final one-on-one sit-down with a manager. The second round shadowing portion took from 1:30 to 8:00 in the evening.

Interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting

Interview Details – I applied this position and got a call from them the next day to set up an interview time. Then I came there for the first interview. That was a quite basic interview-- just like a chat. The night of that day, I was informed a second interview. At this time I went on line to search for some information about the position and company, and it turned out to be a door-to-door sale position, which was not what I was looking for. So the next day, I called and cancelled it.

Junior Executive Interview

Junior Executive

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting.

Interview Details – I went to the first round interview and everything went well. The guy was very polite and kind. He asked 6 questions I think, not hard to answer, all general questions. They called me and asked for a second round interview from 1:30pm-8:00pm. They never talked about the door-to-door sales. I asked about the job responsibilities, he said the Junior Executive will do marking, sales, business analysis, consulting, basically everything.
