    The recruiter is the regional manager, quiet experienced and was a really nice guy. The manager did not ask much, mostly is he talking, it was an easy interview. The office is pretty small, but nice and clean.

    Easy. They are looking for someone who is able to speak effectively and will fill in a spot. The managers get paid off of your production and also based on a head count for their team. Any warm body that knows English can get the job.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Netpique in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted through Monster by a Netpique recruiter to schedule an interview for a Reliant Energy sales position. We discussed the position over the phone and then scheduled for a face to face interview in Dallas office, which lasted about 45 minutes. The recruiter called the next day to follow up, and offered the position. We discussed training dates, and then was sent a written offer.

    Seemed like it would cost more in gas and wear & tear on car than I would make in salary plus commissions.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the Corporate Recruiter after seeing my resume on Monster.She set up an interview for me for the following week.
    The interview was with the Regional Sales Director and was very basic. It was mostly him explaining the position and asking why I thought I would be a good fit.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Tacoma, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tacoma, WA
    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Netpique in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter with Netpique. Very pleasant, though evaded my question about if they told their sales reps to claim to be employed with the end client (not the first sales outsourcing company I've ever talked to). I then did a scheduled phone interview with the Area Sales Manager. I decided not to go any further to the one on one interview because I asked enough questions to know this is not the kind of company I want to work for.

    Job Duties: Netpique wants you to knock on 50-60 business doors a day and sign the businesses up on behalf of their clients. You are given a badge identifying you as working for the client (Office Depot in the Seattle area, even though you are actually an employee of Netpique... very SHADY business practice). You get a small monthly commission rated on a point system that averages out all of your sales. The points are based on how many "white collar" workers are employed with the business. Additionally there no residuals for signing up accounts (they are turned over to the client) and the base 21,400 (which is in essence hourly - if you don't work 40 hours you don't get paid for 40 hours) + commission equate to about 36K / year before taxes and your expenses (you provide your own cell phone and car, no mileage reimbursement).

    Summary: Another greedy company exploiting hard working people trying to earn a living.

    Reasons for Declining

    This company seems greedy, shady, and the pay doesn't amount to squat. The woman interviewing me dodged specific questions as did the recruiter who originally contacted me. Vague answers on an employers part about the kind of candidates they hire is a bad sign. Additionally she refused to use the word hourly with me regarding compensation because the pay is "pro-rated". Last I knew, you're either salaried or hourly if you're a W-2 employee.
