    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Onvia (Seattle, WA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty straightforward interview, nothing special. All behavioral questions. Just wanted to get to know your background, why Onvia, etc. Did a 15 minute phone interview initially, and then they called back a couple weeks later to schedule an in-office. Met with HR, and content manager. Got a tour of the office. and got to interact with employees in potential department.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Onvia (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Straight forward interview process. They have you meet with 3 managers from the Sales division who all get to know you in their own individual ways, but the common theme is they want to understand why you think you're a good salesman and what your sales process is. Last interview with the CEO is unique, but wasn't too difficult. They just want to know what makes you tick

    Interview Questions

    • Mock Call was the hardest part, because you're given one shot to impress. Nerve racking.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    In Sales, did not negotiate because of commission structure which is pretty good.

    Interview

    I met with 3 or 4 people. Each person asked their own set of questions. They asked what I know about Onvia, why I want to work there, etc. They have two types of sales positions. One is focused on finding new business (lots of cold calls) and the other is focused on existing customers.

    Interview

    Dressed up which was definitely a good idea. Interviews were not well thought out. People seemed more concerned with the "now" and less with the fact that if I were hired, I would impact their daily functioning in untold ways. Not all were available to meet so others subbed in. Toughest questions came from the subs. Come prepared to discuss data, contracts, process, and innovation.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have knowledge of government contracting?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Know your worth. Negotiate. Get a fair value and consider the opportunity to be the highest priority. These are good people who are trying hard to make a difference for their company. But don't accept less than you're REALLY worth to THEM. If you're going to make the big bucks at this company, you MUST deliver a high impact.

    Interview

    Phone screen then a follow-up call within a week. Focused on consultative sales skills. Final is a role playing call-they give you a customer to research and you have to do a mock-call with the team and "sell" them on the Onvia solution. Overall the interviews were not overly insightful or especially hard.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard stuff-weaknesses/strengths-that type of stuff.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate a higher base salary-but then found out later they were trying to low-ball me and were routinely gaming prosepcts on the base-straw man negotiations. Ethically challenged company
