    Interview Details

    I had multiple interviews with various leaders in the company. They were all straight forward although they probably overstated the opportunity in the marketplace. It was all done very quickly and I was not held waiing for a great deal of time. Each of the people that I spoke with seemed to have a different ideea of what the requirements for the job were.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Microdesk.

    Interview Details

    The interview process took months. You would have thought I was applying for a CEO position. Email inquiries about the status of interviews often went ignored. Finally, many months and three interviews later, I was told they were going in a different direction. I'm not upset they didn't hire me- it's their prerogative and I've seen what people who worked for the company have posted about their experience working there- but it was most unprofessional to make me wait so long for an answer.

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Microdesk in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I went through a 4 stage interview process and many red flags went off in my head. The person I interviewed with seems to generalize everything and could not answer any specific details or let me speak with any of the successful people they claimed to have be there.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Microdesk in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted by a recruiter after i submitted an online app. We spoke for 20 minutes and, as usual, it sounded like the best place on earth to work. The next step was a phone interview with a regional sales VP. I spoke with him for about 1/2 hour. He reeked of micro management., complete with meetings galore, product training, sales training, and a weekly conference call every monday from 5-6pm.

    We spoke of the actual job and my relevant work experience. However, re-selling other companies products does not require a great wealth of experience, considering clients already know what they want, or are just renewing their service agreements.

    We parted friends. The next morning, I contacted the recruiter and declined any further interest.

    Reasons for Declining

    This position is for someone who is relatively new to sales. Microdesk is just a reseller of Oracle and Autodesk solutions, so the technical requirements are not very demanding. The position also had every indication of a micromanagment sales philosophy. Overall, it looked like just another boilershop workplace. If your looking for an entry to technology sales, your better off with a company like CDW than Microdesk; a much broader selction of products and services. And finally, they are located in Philadelphia were you are subject to the 4.5% wage tax.
