I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Capitol Office Solutions.
Interview Details – Interview process will consist of an initial face to face interview with the sales manager and maybe the VP of sales. Relatively easy, just talk about your sales experience and show passion to sell. Second step is a ride along -- you drive around with an Outside Acct Exec and see the daily routine -- this is a step for both the employer and candidate to see if the job is a fit. Last step is a panel interview where they ask you to present the strengths of COS, what appeals to you about COS, and how you can bring value to the organization

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Capitol Office Solutions in December 2010.
Interview Details – A 20-30 minute phone screening to determine if you would be a good fit and also explain the position in detail. If that goes well you will be brought in to speak with the sales manager. If that goes well you will have a field ride to get a feel of the day to day life as an employee. Once the current employee reports back to HR and the sales manager they may bring you in for a panel interview with 5 C- level execs for a panel interview. That interview is a 15-30 presentation telling them why you are the best person for the position then they ask questions from the presentation and your resume lasting about an hour in total. A decision is made after the meeting and they call about 1 day later if the background check is clear.
