    Interview Details

    Applied online for a different position at the company. A manager emailed me and told me that if I applied for the position, she would interview me. I did and soon after that we made plans for a phone interview. Had only one interview and soon after that it was mainly just processing my information and filling out an evaluation.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Advantage Sales and Marketing in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, had 2 phone calls and was hired by the second caller. I have never met a person working for this company face to face, yet they expect me to give my ssn and drivers license numbers online which makes me nervous. Just seems like poor practice for a company to expect one to do that these days when you never know if it is an identity theft scam! Also, if you read the fine print on the first acceptance email that you have been hired, (which gives them the right to ask for your ssn), it says you really aren't guaranteed the job until you go through the hiring process. I totally understand background check and drug tests, but still would feel much better if I could meet with someone before giving all my IDs! The form I am supposed to fill out online doesn't even say the site is secure! How do I know this is safe? Any site I have used in the past asking for that kind of info had safety features all over it! Anyway, I still havent decided whether I should complete the forms and continue with the hiring process.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Advantage Sales and Marketing in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Complete disaster of an interview process. Recruiter had to reschedule last minute multiple times. Had a very uncomfortable phone and Skype interview. Third interview was in person, but was mostly just information on what the job was. I never felt I had a real interview which was less stressful but the whole process was unorganized and uncomfortable.

    Interview Questions
    • Did not have many real interview questions, most important to them seemed to be that you would be willing to relocate if you were looking to move up within the company.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Advantage Sales and Marketing.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied online and received an email with 10 questions that I was to answer that were pre-employment screening questions as well as a brief overview of the position. A few days later I received a call from a recruiter who asked me questions reviewing my answers as well as additional questions asking about my background and goals for the future. My information was then forwarded to the supervisor for my area and a phone interview was scheduled the next week. After the phone interview an in-person interview was scheduled at a local walmart. We spoke further about the position, I was given a tour of the store locating the clients we served and their products on the shelves as well as a brief introduction on use of the ipad. I was then offered the job on the spot.

    Negotiation Details
    During the phone interview my supervisor was very honest i had originally said i was looking for a certain amount that was already below the minimum. He said he wouldn't low ball me and that the job was worth the maximum he was available to offer and that's what he gave me.
