    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Gold Rush 1849 in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Reached out for a quick phone interview and immediately invited me for an in-person interview, which lasted 15 minutes total. After that screening interview, i was invited to shadow one of the salesmen for a full 9-5 day in the field. After that, if they think you can handle it, you have one more quick 15 minute interview where they offer you the job that day.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Gold Rush 1849.

    Interview Details

    I applied to this position online. After about three days, I was called by an HR representative, who scheduled an interview with me during the same week. After talking on the phone with her, she emailed me the address, the website, and the social media sites of the company.

    When I got to the interview, I was greeted by the receptionist and HR lady (who were seating side by side in the receptionist). Then, they asked me to fill out an application. As I was filling this out, two more job seekers arrived. Their interview was scheduled at the same time as me.

    The HR lady asked me very general interview questions, but focused primarily on teamwork and competition. She told me, if chosen, I would have to go to a second interview, which would require me to shadow for a whole day one of their account executives. I got a phone call the same afternoon to schedule my second interview.

    Account Representative Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Gold Rush 1849 in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was brought in for an initial interview with a hiring manager that lasted all of 10 minutes. Nothing too difficult (what are your goals, etc.) and then asked to come in for a second, all-day interview where I would be shadowing a current employee.

    Though this job was advertised as a marketing position it is actually 100% face-to-face sales. I felt totally misled as this was never discussed in the job ad or initial interview.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in White Plains, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Gold Rush 1849 in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interviewing process was very in depth and thorough. After the first round interview, I got to experience a day in the life of one of their top trainers for the second round interview. At lunch time we sat down one-on-one and they explained the different levels of growth and advancement within the company. I was impressed with how knowledgeable the account executive I was out with was about the various campaigns that Gold Rush works on, as well as the levels of growth within the company.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Gold Rush 1849 in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through LinkedIn, i was contacted failure shortly after by Stephanie. She was very enthusiastic about the company and though I had little info about Gold Rush I agreed to come for the interview. The first interview was brief however the company seemed young, vibrant and high energy so I as excited when i was invited for a job shadow.
    My second interview was a BLAST. I got to see all about the client relations side and the day flew by, it was a ,little new to me but the account manager knew his stuff and I learned a ton. It was cool that they offer beneftis and base plus commission options for employees, i interviewed at a similar company and they didnt have that option.
    The company has a lot of perks like kickball leagues, softball leagues and they do a travel incentive every month which I am all about!
    The final interview was relaxed and I felt the whole process was thorough. Over all great experience!

    Interview Questions
    • What would I like to improve on and/or what area of coaching would I like to receive..   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Salary options base and/or base plus commission. The commission is definately more lucrative and they offer a 4 week base and then you can change to commission!

    Interview Details

    The staff was very friendly and nice. The first round was a normal interview process. They want to see if you have any sales skills or trainable to it. But the second round was very complicating. They gave me a sheet and explained how the training process works. I was really confused about the pay and the stages at the work.
