Social Media Sales Associate

Interviewed at Main Street Hub

Interview Details – Phone interview went alright - The guy doing it has no experience at it from what I learned from working there, if you don't sound like an idiot and have some background it should be a piece of cake. Interviewing was quick, lot's of questions, wants to see motivation and that sort of thing.

Interview Question – If you are doing bad in your phone interview, he will do things to see if you can save it and ask you to sell him something. I know this because he told me in person. So be prepared. If you suck, he will ask you to sell him something.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations. 32k salary, benefits, they go over more about commission in training. But read my review, commission is horrible.

Social Media Sales Associate Interview

Social Media Sales Associate
New York, NY

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Main Street Hub in May 2012.

Interview Details – They emailed me a script to memorize and about 24 hours later we had a phone interview where we roll played a cold call. I was offered a position at the end of the call.

Interview Question – The script is incredibly long so if they give you any negative answers it's hard to move to a rebuttal.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They told me what the salary was and I turned them down. The next day they gave me a second offer and I took a few days to accept it but refused to start until the next hiring phase as I held a high demand position within my current company. They then offered me more and said I had to start that Monday (it was Friday afternoon).

Difficult Interview

Social Media Sales Associate Interview

Social Media Sales Associate
Austin, TX

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Main Street Hub in April 2013.

Interview Details – The hiring process is actually very rigorous. You begin by filling out a personalized written application as well as submitting a resume and cover letter. The written application mostly wants to sift out how well you understand the sales psychology and whether or not you could be passionate about social media. The next level is a face to face initial meeting with the recruiter and the sales managers. If you pass that, they send you home with the pitch which you practice on your own and then do a mock telephone call with the recruiter a day or so later. If you pass the mock telephone call, you then come in for live interviews where you call real businesses and they monitor how you speak and react on your feet. If they like you, you are hired.

Interview Question – Why would you want a job cold calling?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – You are unable to negotiate. They just lowered their base salary as well, but, the commission is very fair and you can make good money if you are crushing it.
