Paramount Equity Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Lead Qualifier Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Paramount Equity.
Interview Details – I was informed about the position from a college friend and current loan officer at the company. We started with a phone interview from my future sales manager, then proceeded to what was supposed to be the first of two in person interviews. First interview went well and they called a few days later letting me know a second wouldn't be necessary and I had the job. It was very professional and prompt throughout.
Interview Question – The process was pretty straightforward, so I didn't detect many trick questions that aren't already par for the course in any interview. My best advice is at the end (and this goes for any interview), ask "where do we go from here?" That's never failed to get me a job. Answer Question
Senior Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Paramount Equity in August 2010.
Interview Details – The interview process was very comfortable and smooth. This company seems like a great place to work. It has a young feel to it and seems to have a clear vision of their direction. I met with two executives on different days, and both made me feel very comfortable about the prospect of joining their team. I have not yet decided if I will leave my current employer, but I have been approached many times over the years and this is this is by far the best opportunity that has been presented to me.
Interview Question – We would like to add an additional 20 high producing sales people in this office. If hired, how would you go about accomplishing this? Answer Question
legacy position Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Paramount Equity in April 2009.
Interview Details – Interviewing has a few phases. I spoke on the phone with the recruiter for the company but it seemed more like a formality and he set up an interview with a manager. The interview was with Mr. Marx who and was a in person interview. Interview was a mix between an interview you would have with a big company where they want to know what you know about the company and the industry and also that of a small company, when it seems like a substantial amount of time is spent "selling you on them". I found the interviewer to be really honest, no trick questions, he was straight forward about his questions, what they were looking for and expectations. I wish more interviews were as honest as theirs.
