    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Orion International in June 2010.

    Lengthy, thorough but fair. The managers really try to hone in on your passion and desire to be in sales and look hard for your motivations. It can be tough and Orion has a good pool to chose from, so they are selective. Ensure you read books and research sales. if you know others in sales it helps to talk with them,

    Account Executive Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 4 days - interviewed at Orion International in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    The initial interview is with a recruiter. Simply telephone interview. Then they bring you in to meet partners face to face. Expect to be judged on your personal appearance and looks. It's a sales job and they take this into account whether they admit it or not. The next step is to do cold calling with a senior partner.

    My experience was that the senior partner called old contacts or people he knew to make the cold calling seem not so bad. no, sorry thats a warm call. Not a cold call. He did the majority of the calls. I think I actually only did 3 on my own after memorizing a short script and leaving a few emails.

    I interviewed with each of the partners in a panel type format 2 partners at a time. I was given a homework assignment to look up a company and make a presentation to the partners as if I'm pitching a job at a conference. There was no real guidance on this project except an awful power point example from a previous employee. Be sure to prepare for questions after the presentation. You can bs the answers just make sure you have an answer. the questions they ask are - is there growth in the company? (have a position you can be promoted to) is there a relocation package? (no or make one up) who would i report to? (have a position ready to spit out) what are the benefits package? etc

    the interview process was really over the top for the position and the quality of the company.
