I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Onvia in May 2014.
Interview Details – 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.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Onvia in January 2009.
Interview Details – 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 Question – Pretty standard stuff-weaknesses/strengths-that type of stuff. Answer Question

Interview Details – 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 Details – I met with 6 different managers. I was basically asked the same questions over and over again. I was well qualified for the position however, I was not selected. All but one manager had been with the company less than a year… RED FLAG. The office seemed dirty and disorganized. The interview was conducted in a large storage closet, which seemed odd since I noticed a lot of empty space around the office. Looking back I’m very thankful that I was not selected.
