    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at OLN.

    Interview

    The first interview was brief. 10-15 minutes to create a first impression. I knew this position involves face to face client acquisition and one on one marketing so it was more of a chance for them to see if I can make a first impression. The second interview was a shadowing opportunity. I rode with a senior corporate trainer and observed the client acquisition and retention of AT&T business customers. It was a peer review where they wanted to see if I would fit in to their culture so even though I got to observe the marketing strategies, they were more interested in getting to know me as a person and my goals and values, over my ability to sell and experience level. I was pushed out of my comfort zone but definitely saw value in the experience.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at OLN.

    Interview

    Everything was really simple. I applied on linked in and received a call from Randi shortly after. Once I scheduled the first interview, I went into the lobby area, and met with Elijah shortly after. It was really clear what job I would be performing and matched up with the description in the job posting. I was really impressed with the professionalism and friendliness displayed by everyone. Overall, I was very pleased with how quick the process was!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at OLN in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process lasted about a week and consisted of several rounds of interviews. I really enjoyed that they do a shadow-like interview where I could actually see the position and really get to know the company and my potential co-workers. I found this particularly helpful when making my decision on whether the company was a good fit. The person I interview with was really professional, but also really fun so I definitely felt like I would be a good fit with their culture.

    Interview Questions

    • Name the biggest challenge I had in my last position and how I overcame it. What would I have done differently knowing what I know now?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The company's advancement is merit-based so I'm assuming that my performance when I start training will be the "negotiation"

    I applied in-person – interviewed at OLN in December 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process at OLN was actually great! Very inviting atmosphere, the front desk administrator was REALLY cool to talk with, and FREE Keureg coffee! Meeting Elijah was great, and he was very clear and upfront about what to expect from the position. I felt immediately comfortable with him and the company.

    Application

    The process took a weekinterviewed at OLN in September 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted a resume through Careerbuilder after reading a fun and upbeat ad that caught my attention ( unlike most ). Due to the fact that I am looking for employment sooner than later, I called the contact number on the ad to learn more about the company beyond just what was online. To my surprise, the young woman I spoke with was informative, friendly and talked to me about a charity event they had just raised money for when I told her I was looking for a company that was active in the community and with its employees. I was contacted a few days later after my resume had been reviewed by the manager and offered a preliminary interview! Being this the first career I am interviewing for right before graduation, I was incredibly nervous but was put to ease by the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. Overall I'm very impressed and hope to receive an invitation for a second interview!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at OLN in September 2014.

    Interview

    I was told on the phone I would be interviewing for a management position. When I looked at the companies website it was clear it was directed at potential employees and not at clients. When I arrived for the interview it was in a super sketchy office space that could easily be packed up and moved somewhere the next day. It raised major red flags. I am pretty sure this company is a multilevel marketing thing. They say they have lots of different clients but the Nashville office seems to only sell office supplies to small businesses. They have a three part interview process where they won't discuss compensation until you spend an entire day with a sales rep. I couldn't get a straight answer out of the "president" of the company about very much. Weird experience.

    • They were all dumb leading questions. Never felt like he was evaluating me as a candidate but rather trying to sell me on a position. Super weird.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Applied on LinkedIn, received a call for an interview a week or two later, was called in for an interview. Interview was very casual with basic questions (Why did you apply? What characteristics would make you good in marketing? What were you involved with in college?). Everyone in the office was very friendly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at OLN.

    Interview

    The company is rather small than I expected, but the interview with their president can be a good experience. Those who are looking for a position as a sales person and a place to get promotion, that might be a good place. But I am not looking for a position like that, so I just declined the offer.

    Not suitable for that job position though.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at OLN (Nashville, TN) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted a resumé and cover letter online. One day later, I received a call to schedule my interview. They try to schedule your interview as soon as possible. Upon entering the office, loud music was playing and the tv was on mute. They have you complete a short application and attach your resumé, if you have it. While waiting, the two ladies at the front desk asked if we like Nightmares on Wax and began talking about different concerts they have attended or, would like to. 

    I was greeted and interviewed by Elijah Medge. He was dressed in a business suit, as well as the other males in the office. He talked really fast about the job and did not like too many questions. This job is not door to door because you do not walk door to door to sell the product, you drive from business to business. You are the middle man, selling other business products like office supllies, to other companies. After the interview, you will get a call back to go for on-the-job training. You will be placed with some random employee and will ride around town trying to make sells. This is not paid training. Opportunities for advancement are available after you have worked in the entry level position for about 18 months to two years.
