    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EPA in March 2010.

    Interview

    It was a really simple interview, it was more like the job was being sold to me. The interviewer talked more than I did. He never even asked some of the basic interview questions particularly for a sales type job. I felt like with him talking so much I would lose my train of thought and actually ended giving some of the worst answers I ever have in an interview. Honestly, if I was interviewing me I wouldn't have hired me. But in the end he all but offered the job on the spot and even said the interview was mostly just to make sure I seemed professional.

    Reasons for Declining

    The interview was way to simple, no company hires like that for a "professional" position. 100% commission pay + all travel and they don't pay your expenses. I couldn't help but get the sense what they were selling to elderly people felt like some type of scam.
