    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Capstone Consultants.

    Interview Details

    I applied through their website, the HR Manager contacted a few days later. She reviewed my resume and ask me qualifying questions. She set up a first round for me the next day. When I arrived at the office the atmosphere was very fun everyone is young that works there and they had a nice location in the dilworth community. My interview was brief and the girl that interviewed me was professional but still fun and ask good questions geared toward my long term goals and personality. I was called back that evening for a second round interview which was a full day. I went out with this dude who played college football, he showed me the entry level side of things and shared his testimony about how he has hit promotions with the company already. At lunch we sat down and he went over all the advancement structures.

    Interview Details

    I didn't even apply for the position. I put my resume on job sites and they contacted me for an interview. I was told bring resume and dress was business attire, so in my mind I am thinking this will be a professional business. I was wrong! When I arrived for the interview, it was located in a run down looking building shared with a work out room and some other business. When I walked in there were lots of other people there trying to land the same position which of course is a nerve factor to make you think there's alot of competition so you want to blow them out of the water. When I was called back for the interview, I was asked the most random non-interview related questions that lasted all of 10 minutes. It was so easy, my 7 year old could have passed the interview. At the end, he told me I would be contacted later that day for a 2nd interview, which I was. They told me it was an 8 hour shadow interview, which sounded to me like a free day of work, Not Good! When I came for the 2nd "interview" I was told I would be going out with another employee scouting? So me and another new hire rode with the employee all the way from downtown Charlotte to south gastonia and I lived in Concord! We had to do door to door sales trying to get people to buy AT& , but get this, the employee we were shadowing already canvassed that neighborhood, so talk about embarrassing when people was telling me a guy just came the day before asking if they wanted AT&T. Then about half way through we went to get food in which I had no money with me the employee refused to just get a burger from the dollar menu in which I promised to pay him back when we got back to the office. Then after we ate he actually told me and the other hire that the company is a scam, 100% commission, no gas percentage, no benefits, NOTHING! Oh and the part that really truly scared me was this guy asked me and the other new hire if we smoked weed! We both kind of laughed it off and said no then he continues to tell us of his criminal history that was recent! So then I realized they will hire anybody! I was completely uncomfortable by that time all I could think about was getting back to the office and speeding away from there like a bat out of hell! I would tell anyone whohas an interview with them or whatever to NOT accept even the first interview. If you are good at sales and don't mind 100% commission I would say find a better more professional company to go with. Not this one!

    Account Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    There was an application online and I applied. I got a call back in a decent amount of time telling me to come in for the interview. I was told to be dressed professionally. When I got there, the atmosphere was nice and the lady at the front desk had me fill out a form and told me to put my resume with it. She was very personable. There wasn't anyone specific to do my interview, just whoever was available. I was able to go back super early which was a plus. I finally was called back and as we sat down I noticed one thing that to me was unprofessional. The interviewer had badly chipped nail polish. When you are interviewing or are the interviewee, you should uphold a professional appearance at all times. All in all, the experience was a good one, the interviewer was very nice and laid back.

    Account Manager/Customer Service Representative They're All the Same Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Capstone Consultants in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    They lure you in by making you believe you are actually interviewing for the job you applied for. then you get there and realize it's actually door to door sales (AT & T) . I had my suspicions but when I showed up for my 2 pm interview, and about six other people showed up also for a 2 pm interview, I was sure. I cut the interview short after the guy avoided most of my questions. I guess apparently if you do great at door to door sales eventually you will be in an account manager position, which is what I applied for. I will work in a restaurant before going door to door.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Capstone Consultants in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    They bring u in for a 10 minute interview. They do 100 of these a week, and about 10% of people are brought back for a second round. It feels like a human resources factory in there. Once brought back for the 2nd day, you have to follow a rep out on the job. this is a 5 hour commitment, and it consists of walking around door to door for 2 hours. Taking a 30 minute break for lunch and for the manager to describe the "manager training" process, then going around again.

    Then you have to follow them back to the office, take a brief survey and talk to the manager again for 10 minutes. If they like you, they'll call you the following week.

    I was not interested in the position after the 2nd interview, and this is why they send u on it. The employee retention rate at a place like this is abysmal. Capstone Consulting has Pyramid Scheme all over it.
