    Sponsorship Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Tampa, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Tampa, FL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4 days - interviewed at IQPC in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I found IQPC at a job fair. I passed the first phone interview and was asked in for a second interview. The phone interview was stressful and I thought the interviewer said a few things that were less than professional. The second interview required a lot of preparation. I had zero sales/business experience so maybe others would have to prepare less. It requires reading 8 chapters of a book and preparing a mock presentation. The interview was long. It lasted about 2-2.5 hours. It was structured: Preliminary questions about resume/past work experience, questions about the book you read, more personal questions, mock presentation questions, more personal questions, I asked questions, and finally they gave me feedback. It went really well. They offered me the job on the spot. They were very kind and gave me nice compliments. I felt great after the brain-melting interview. I actually enjoyed the challenging interview process.

    Reasons for Declining

    I almost accepted. I was on my way to fax the agreement when I got a call from a more desirable company. I read a lot of reviews on this website, and I read and re-read the offer agreement that they sent me. I don't want to work in a very stressful environment with low employee satisfaction and the fear of getting fired looming over my head everyday. Corporate Hell just isn't for me. I hope all of the reviews aren't true and there are some happy people that love their job at IQPC. I just didn't want to find out for myself.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at IQPC.

    Interview Details

    Expect at least one phone screening then 1-2 on-site interviews. First interview is kind of akward as they tell you at anytime either party can tap out and walk away. Second interview usually more optimistic, they assign you a homework project during the first interview, it is reviewed and a personality assessment is conducted during the second interview. Expect an offer letter or phone call to extend an employee agreement within a couple days of the second interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Know something about SPIN selling before starting the interview process.   Answer Question

    Interview Questions
    • None, person was too stupid and staff unprofessional to actually follow thru after the interview. I realize now you will see this company has hire turnover and the same job posted every year...there has to be better places to work.   View Answer

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4 days - interviewed at IQPC.

    Interview Details

    I met with a manger of Delegate sales and he was very friendly and personable. We went over my experience and asked me why I wanted to go into sales. The position is half cold calls, half research trying to get small bushiness to come to events and conferences. Overall it went well, but the NYC office looked kinda depressing.
