I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Broadview Networks.
Interview Details – Went through a recruiter and it was nothing out of the ordinary. The first step was meeting with the Sales Manager, a phone call and then an in person meeting. Then a second round with the Regional VP of Sales and Sales Manager. For the second round, they required me to put together a 30,60,90 day plan and talk about how I would execute the plan if offered the position. The last interview was a phone conversation with the VP of Sales.
Interview Question – I would say the most difficult thing during the interview process was the 30,60,90 day plan. A lot of the questions asked were very traditional interview questions. The plan required more thought and assumption because they did not give very clear instructions or how they would grade me. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I declined the offer. The base pay was competitive but the overall comp plan was going to cost me money. They cap expenses to $250 a month/$3000 a year. The territory I would have managed, would have been at least 2/3 more of an expense then the stipend and thats being really conservative. In addition, the health plan was not what I expected. For a family, the plan was a $4,000 deductible plan with copays.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Broadview Networks in February 2011.
Interview Details – Received notification from a friend who is an employee regarding the position. Submitted resume and got a phone interview 2 weeks later. The phone interview was very brief and offered very little insight as to what the manager was looking for. I believe there was an internal candidate and the manager was going through the motions. I had to press to find out why the position was open and the manager agreed that my qualifications were sufficent for the position.
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Broadview Networks in December 2009.
Interview Details – The senior manager knew of my previous employer and what was expected and accomplished there. They needed a few more reps and I had experience in the industry working in NYC, which carried a lot of weight. I felt going in that it was mine to lose. Interviewed briefly by the local and regional manager, then offered the position.
Negotiation Details – Being essentially entry level, there wasn't much in the way of negotiations.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Broadview Networks in October 2010.
Interview Details – Broadview Networks is not Verizon. By a long stretch.
I had a number of years in telecomm and was working for a third-party company before going on a recommended interview at Broadview Networks in NY. Initially, the managers I met with were good, although we were hitting some barriers on compensation, Broadview's reputation for sometimes less than satisfactory customer service/ issue resolution, and reasons for high employee turnover. But I still was interested in finding out for myself whether those were valid concerns. After a meeting or two, they escalated me to an interview with a district manager.
At that point, things became worse. The DM began to discuss a different position with me that was significantly less responsibility and compensation than the one that had been initially proposed- and less in both respects than my current job at the other company. I asked about the other position, and he was very dismissive, expressing a "we're interviewing you for this position and no other" message. His tone and attitude were very unprofessional and condescending. I never heard back from him or Broadview, not even to decline to further consider me as a candidate. I finally spoke to one of the original managers who apologized to me.
Had that last interview not happened, I probably would not have accepted a job at Broadview Networks, however, I would have been left with more of a neutral "not the right fit" feeling, rather than a negative outlook.
