I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Dominion Enterprises (Norfolk, VA) in November 2013.
Quick, met with the 3 bosses within the Website Department, very friendly. Ask me about my skills within web and graphic design. I was called later that day and offered the position. Came back same day to sign offer paperwork and started 3 weeks later. Helped that I had interned there a couple of summers beforehand for Forrent.com

I applied online. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Dominion Enterprises (Norfolk, VA).
This was one of the worst interview processes I have ever experienced in my 18 year career. Fortunately, I received a better offer elsewhere. 1. The hiring manager nickel and dimed me on every aspect of the salary and equipment needs. 2. The hiring manager tried to make me give a start date before the drug test and background check were completed. You never ever consider a job offer is complete until all the employment conditions have been met. 3. The hiring manager tried to make me start on my birthday. The manager did not care that it was my birthday and made no attempt to acknowledge that starting on a person's birthday was in no way terrible. 4. The hiring manager pressured me to give my current job less than 2 weeks notice and did not care that it would be bad or burning a bridge with my current employer. This shows the hiring manager's lack of care for myself of anyone that works for him.

Reasons for Declining
Because of how awful it would be to work for this particular person and the terrible conditions that were provided in working for this person.

I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Dominion Enterprises.
Typical for the most part, 5 interviews, including one phone interview. Two of the in-person interviews were with the same person asking primarily the same thing
- One interviewer talked about herself for most of that interview. 1 Answer
The offer was less than I had said I would accept; that was frustrating. I said I would accept, so that was frustrating. I declined that offer but they came back with a higher salary so I accepted.

General phone interview followed by a request for an in-person interview. During in-person interview it was very apparent the lack of knowledge from management. I was basically better interviewed by the other Designers.
- It was more personality questions rather than technical knowledge questions. 1 Answer
If you are not happy with the initial salary do not take the offer. I was tricked into thinking I would get faster raises depending on performance reviews but management lies in those reviews.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Dominion Enterprises in July 2013.
Very judgmental company or the Sales Manager was. First I was offered a position and then it was recanted, and he couldn't come up with an explanation or was being a coward and not being honest. I was honest with my background and was judged, even though I was very qualified for the job. Would not recommend this position.
- Are you able to make sales calls when you are on the road? This is a basic question for any outside sales rep. It was asked in a demeaning manner by the Regional Sales Manager. Answer Question
Not a real negotiation.

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Dominion Enterprises (San Diego, CA).
Received a phone call from a resume I submitted through Craigslist. Had a phone interview first then asked to come in for a formal interview. Personable HR rep on the phone. Met with a sales manager for the in office interview. Good interview. Nice manager with welcoming personality. Made me feel easily at ease. Cubicle environment.
- None of the questions stood out, as most were pretty standard for the sales industry. I guess since it's a telemarketing position, be prepared to answer "How do you think you would handle a lot of rejection over the phone?" Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
Had another job offer more in line with my goals.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week – interviewed at Dominion Enterprises (Norfolk, VA).
Communicated with an internal recruiter via email and then had a phone interview with the hiring manager. Unfortunately, whoever wrote the job description was way off. The job title and description made it sound like they wanted a backend developer but the position was really for a UI developer. I didn't find this out until the end of the interview. I of course didn't get an offer but wouldn't have accpted it if I did.
