Very Easy Interview
Merchant Account Executive Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Merchant Services Direct in July 2013.
Interview Details – I sent a resume to a company called Sphyra on a Sunday. On Monday I received a call from a woman whose voice was shaking, she did not introduce herself, or identify the company. Eventually I realized that she was calling from Sphyra. We scheduled an interview for the following day with the ???? Branch Manager.
Interview Question – Why you? View Answer
Reason for Declining – This was supposedly a nationally recognized company but I could only find one employee review under Sphyra. Once I did some digging I realized that sphyra was actually Merchant Services Direct. From there it was all downhill.
I was also somewhat offended by the "clubwear" in the "office"
Sales Associate Interview (Neutral Experience)

Interview Question – why YOU? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Seemed fishy.
Very Easy Interview
Sales/Marketing Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Merchant Services Direct in August 2010.
Interview Details – The pre-screening interview process took about 3 minutes. The hiring manager seemed very unprofessional making demeaning jokes and remarks and basically rushed me out of his office after he talked non-stop about what the job position entails. He did not even ask if I had any other questions and the entire thing seemed like a big scam. I'd advise you to not waste your time with this company.
Interview Question – Tell me about yourself and your hobbies. Answer Question
