    Junior Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in McLean, VA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Zerin Business Consulting (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    At first the job seemed very professional and high level but after I went through the interview process I found that the job was not what I expected it to be at all. I was given very little real information as to what the job actually was and when I was offered a position I was not given a contract to review before hand. They seemed to dance around a lot of my questions and I soon realized why since it ended up not being what I though it was and ended up being door to door sales.

    Junior Executive Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Zerin Business Consulting (McLean, VA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    First of all, I didn't realize that the two companies, Zerin Business Consulting and Omega Business Consulting are sharing the same office and they are partners. I got interviews for both companies and that's when I found it strange. I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist until I met the hiring manager, and then we went through my resume and experience, and who, what the company is and what they do, nothing about the position duties and responsibilities, when I asked, the hiring manager said they will talk about it at the second round interview which is shadowing someone who work there. At the end I asked the relationship between ZBC and OBC, he claimed that they are partners, and they will share information, so that I don't have to show up for the afternoon interview with OBC.

    Entry Level Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Zerin Business Consulting (Tysons Corner, VA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was laid back and easy. They kept the questions strictly on the company. In the first interview, they had already mentioned what is going to happen in the second Interview. Overall they don't mention what kind of job this is at all. But I did a little bit of research and found out that I'm being hired for door to door sales position. I just went for practice in the interview process since I recently graduated and am in the job search.

    Management Training Program Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Zerin Business Consulting (McLean, VA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I didn't apply for this position actually, I was called based on my resume uploaded to a career website. Prior to the interview I read about the company and the interview here so I knew what to expect. I was interviewed by the CEO and he told me that this would be the 1st round of a three-round process. It was just 10 mins with easy questions. I didn't need to introduce myself and he was not interested in my work experience. He didn't say anything about the position, but I asked him if it really is a door-to-door sales position and then he said yes it is. I was selected for the 2nd round but I declined, door-to-door sales is not my thing,

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting.

    Interview

    Applied through career builder and they called me the next morning! Left a message and sent me an email. I asked the interviewer what the real duties of the job are and to give a better question and she tried to change the subject or just dodge the question. And then finally she said it's door to door sale after asking many times. Very unprofessional and unethical. They prey on desperate job seekers.

They reviewed my paper, and accepted me for the internship. I started it a few days after being accepted. Overall, it was a very easy process!

    Junior Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in McLean, VA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Zerin Business Consulting (McLean, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First interview: on the phone, they described themselves as a business consulting firm and emphasized that they consult other businesses in marketing their products. Secondary interview: they take you out for lunch or coffee and tell you what the business REALLY is. Which is NOT a business consulting firm. They are actually a direct marketing firm. Meaning you will be working from 11am-8pm walking around neighborhoods selling other company's products and services door to door. They even are willing to send people alone to do this (very dangerous). The place in which I was taken was so loud I could barely hear the interviewer, which may have been intentional. This company also is actually created through another company and their clients are given to them from this other company that remains nameless to you until you own your own firm. A company that does not wish for any association to it's own branch does not sound like a safe bet. Let alone the already blatant disregard for employee safety walking door to door.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Zerin Business Consulting.

    Interview

    The ad posted: "Junior Executive: Will be trained to interact and communicate with potential and existing customers as well as develop professional and personal managerial skills. Developing strategies for effective communication and presentations, time management, how to win and keep customers and public speaking." The job description was vague and the compensation was said to be $2,900to $3,500 a month. For my first interview, I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist who chatted with me until it was time to be interviewed. I met with the owner of the company who was very pleasant to talk to. We talked about my skills and why I thought I was a good fit for a business management position. For my second interview, I was taken to a Starbucks down the road and I realized it was a pyramid scheme. I would be going door to door to try and sell Verizon Fios. I sat through a very boring and irritating speech about how I could be making 90k in so many months. The base pay starting out would be $100 a week plus commission. Hours were M-F 11:00 to 8:30 and Saturday 11:00 to 6:00ish. I was invited for a third interview but I knew door to door sales wasn't for me. They were very pushy with persuading me that this was the job for me. I thought taking a run for the door was more appropriate....

    Interview

    BE WARE THIS IS A DOOR TO DOOR SALES JOB! I went in for an interview and spoke with someone for about 15 minutes then they told me to come in the following day for the second interview at about 11am. NEVER TOLD ME I'D BE THERE TILL 9PM! I went in for the second interview and there were 3 other people like me. Then they partnered me with a person who already works there and we walked out of the building and went into his car. At this point I still had no idea what was going on. Then we went into this neighborhood, which was 45 minutes away. We got out of the car and started knocking on doors. I was so shocked at what had happened. I couldn't leave because I didn't have my car and we were so far if I took a cab it would have cost a lot of money. We walked knocking door to door for 8 hours when the person I was with told me there was no salary or hourly wage, it was all commission. When we got back the person offered me the job and I kindly denied it. He kept trying to sell me the job but I didn't get my degree to walk door to door trying to sell Verizon.
