Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at hibu (King of Prussia, PA).

Interview

There was an unorganized interview process. They couldn not decide which manager would do the interview and follow up. After the interview I was given a cell phone number of another manger to reach out to to schedule a second meeting.

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate the salary. With the benefits and commission structure, it was much better than what I had been previously doing.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at hibu (Jacksonville, FL) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Was contacted via recruiter on the phone and spoke briefly on 2 separate occasions. She new I was a top performing outside sales executive already so she sent me once again up the corp ladder...

    Next a phone interview was scheduled by someone on the other side of the US in a cubical. I was working in the field that day... My answers were probably not as snappy and sharp as if I was not thinking of closing deal strategy in an hour from then.... Many weeks passed, months and no call back. I received an email after I reached out "Sorry to inform the position was already filled by more qualified" yadda yadda...

    Two months later another recruiter called to have me meet our local regional director if I was interested? I explained I had been declined... She explained they recruit 365days a year on the phone but a REAL office in my REAL city wanted to meet me, so I said Okay.

    • Why did I want to leave my current industry to work for YellowBook advertising?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Was nothing to negotiate. In 2008 They were a forbes fortune 500. So after personally interviewing hundreds of other local outside sales, I was the first chosen in over 5 years to join the team. Everything I was offered I was very happy to accept no questions asked, best benefits, personal allowances, great boss, flexible schedule, BUT expected to PERFORM.

    Interview

    2-3 Interviews before hire. The first interview is there to see if you could be a good fit with advertising sales and have an energetic personality. The second interview is most likely with a Sales Manager and expect to be there for about 2 hours. They will have you fill out forms on a computer and then you will sit and listen in on sales calls with another Media Consultant. This will give you a great idea, if you think you can and want to do the job. Pay attention to details during the sales call and next you'll meet with the Manager. They'll ask you a series of questions to see if you'd really be good and like to be there.
