I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing (DeKalb, IL) in May 2015.
The interview was over the course of 3 phone calls until finally I met with someone in person. The questions were typical, what are you good at, what are your flaws, where do you see yourself in x amount of years, what would be your dream job, how did you hear about us, how do you feel about the job, when are you available to start, do you consider yourself a problem solver, tell me about a time when you had to solve a problem.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing (Warrenville, IL).
I was so insulted by AMP's interviewing process. I had spoken with a recruiter multiple times, and was very excited for my interview. I drove 3 1/2 hours home for the interview, and it only lasted 15 minutes. I was interviewed almost 30 minutes late, and interviewer was rushing me through every question. I was asked to bring a portfolio "brag book" of my awards, but she didn't even ask to see them. I had to bring this up. By the end of the interview, I had no desire to work for AMP. She told me she would let me know the following week, but I never heard back.

I am still in the interview process but I am very impressed. The hiring manager that I spoke with was very nice and was excited about my potential with the company. I am excited to continue with my in person interview.

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.
Applied online, received a phone call within a few weeks and had a 30 minute interview over the phone. I was asked to come in for a second interview that was one on one. After that, I received a call to schedule a third interview where I would meet more of the team and join managers on sales calls. I declined to go on the third interview.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing (Madison, WI) in February 2015.
Went to the interview for their on campus recruiting. I was told the interview would be 30 minutes and it was just under that. I had talked with the recruiter once before the interview but she had no recollection of it and I never received any further contact after the interview.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing (Nashville, TN).
My initial communication with AMP was through e-mail. They responded to my resume posted on one of the job sites. May have been career builder. I spoke with their recruiting manager and she scheduled me an interview with the District Manager in TN. Jamie Heymann. We scheduled to meet at their office in Nashville. The office place was nice and Jamie was very professional and I later found out that she is the best manager anyone could work for!. From my experience and first impression she could tell I may be a good fit for the position. I scheduled what they called a ride day with one of their sales reps so i could get some in the field experience and ideas on what is all entailed in the position. Again, I was impressed with the sales reps professionalism and hard work. After that, I was asked to accept the position and I did! A year later, I couldn't be more grateful to be a part of this amazing team!
- I don't recall any of the questions being difficult. Answer Question
Take the offer. Its a good one!

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing in January 2015.
The first interview I had with AMP was a 30 minute phone interview. It was a very relaxed interview where thy just asked questions to get to know you better and why you were interested in the job. After that I was invited to do an in person interview with the VP of Sales. During that interview I was asked questions like, What is your greatest achievement in life so far?, Why are you best fit for this position?, Tell me a time when you put a ton of hard work to use?, What do you know about the company and me?. After the interview I got a phone call the next day saying that they wanted me to go on a ride along with a salesperson to get a better feel for the job. The ride along was very enlightening as to what the job all entails and what to expect. After that I was offered the job and went to training camp.
- Personally, I did not get a difficult question. The interviews were relaxed, straight forward, and to the point. As long as you go into them prepared and did your research on the company then it will go fine. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing (Chicago, IL) in January 2015.
They never scheduled a phone interview with me so I was really taken off guard when I received the call. I submitted my resume at 8pm got the phone interview at 8am the next day. They told me I qualified for second rounds even thought it was the worst interview I ever gave.
- Basic questions. Tell me about a time when you were challenged and how did you over come that? Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing.
The face to face interview was great but the ride along was awful. Drive an hour to meet the rep, spent the day talking with them. Based on that experience I turned the job down.
- The questions were hypothetical, did not focus on my actual experience. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
Do not like their business model.

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing.
The first step was applying online. I next received a phone interview with a recruiter. Then I had a one-on-one interview with a district manager. It was probably only around a half hour. The next step was to shadow a sales rep in my area to see what the job would be like. If you accept it then you have to recite their script to the district manager.
