    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at AroundCampus (Charlottesville, VA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty standard. The interviewer asked me about things on my resume, especially my internship from last summer. She also asked what about me will other people criticize and praise for. Then she did a mock sale with me about my favorite restaurant around campus. What I need to do was trying to sell an advertisement spot to that restaurant.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really unexpected. The questions were all pretty straightforward. However, you do need to be very energetic and enthusiastic.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at AroundCampus in April 2014.

    Interview

    Interview was set up at my college's career fair and then was later conducted on campus. Questions were about views on leadership, personality, and the ability to sell something arbitrary (like a pen). Interviewer was young and very nice so it makes you feel more at ease rather than being interviewed by someone much older than yourself.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at AroundCampus.

    Interview

    I got the interview after speaking to a gentlemen at my school's career showcasing event. At the career showcase I simply approached a representative from AroundCampus and he told me about the Outside Sales Representative internship position. I got a call on the same day to schedule an interview for the following day. The interview was extremely chill, as it felt very conversational and not like I was being interrogated

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at AroundCampus in February 2015.

    Interview

    I met the woman at the career fair and we talked over the internship as well as the benefits of working for the company. I sent in a few small details along with my resume and had an interview in person then filled out a personality assessment. Overall, not a hard process, but the interviewer was basically reciting a script and the pay was absolutely terrible compared to the long Summer of work (May 13 to August 14 for $3000)

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at AroundCampus.

    Interview

    Initial Phone Interview, and then an in-person interview (due to bad weather, mine was a skype interview).

    This was pretty much your standard interview. They tell you more information about the company, and ask you standard interview questions such as questions about your strengths and weaknesses. You don't necessarily need experience, but you do need to have a positive personality and a desire to learn.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AroundCampus (Gainesville, FL) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I met a recruiter at my college career fair and spoke with him for about 10 minutes. He invited me to schedule an interview on the spot for the following day, which I did. My interview took place with the same recruiter and felt relaxed. He explained the position more and really emphasized the great experience it could provide for me. The questions were not very intense nor did they seem to strictly stick to a theme like behavioral interviews. I sent a thank you email and later received a call notifying me of the offer. I was given about 2 weeks to think it over, but felt that I wanted to hold out for something less dependent on this type of sales so I declined the offer.
