Lotus Interworks Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Sales Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Lotus Interworks in March 2009.
Interview Details – I was emailed by the founder of the company for one position.
I came in for a series of interviews. My references were checked. More candidates were interviewed.
The position then changed. More candidates were interviewed.
This was interspersed with phone calls about how I would only be offered a certain salary throughout the process and would I accept that salary.
Then I was finally offered the position.
I received my offer letter which contained no overall compensation on it.
I was told that if I had a problem with that - I didn't have to start the job.

Negotiation Details – Very negative. Unpleasant. The founder was trying to leverage information that could not possibly be obtained in the interview process for negotiation. It was impossible for me to know what assets he had or what the sales cycle would realistically be for his launching companies with no marketing materials or support.
