    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dahill (San Antonio, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was with the recruiting manager who seemed to run the whole office. They were looking for a recruiting coordinator with the pay salary of an admin. When I asked about room for advancement it seemed slow in about 3 years + from a "coordinator". Also, he mentioned having to stay late or work weekends. Would definitely not recommend. The position is open because the last person left for another position as a "head hunter".

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Dahill (Houston, TX) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Very basic HR questions - specific references to past sales achievements, goals, planning, etc. Typical for sales. Very good organization, but in HOU still in Its youth. San Antonio is corporate- more matured. Interview cites your typical sales schedule, comp plan, and any draws. Read CAREFULLY. 2 yr non compete also. Be aware that expected hours are m-f 730-5:30. Really difficult unless you live around the corner with no extra curricular activities. All in all it's a good place if you can manage to work at the downtown locations that are more eatablished.

    Best of luck!!

    They aren't too flexible on salary, but you may be able to get your draw written in as a gimme.
