Account Manager Interview
I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at Retail Gowth Management Systems in November 2011.
The hiring process mirrors that of the Cydcor corporation. The preliminary first round interview is to screen candidates for a secondary interview in whiich applicants shadow a sales rep "in the field". Pretty much everyone is accepted as long as they aren't overly strange or awkward. Basic people skills are the only requirement.
The second round interview pairs you up with someone in a management training position who tries to sell you the business. The business model si very similar to all of the Cydcor models, and is based off of it.
The entry level position is about sales of a specific product. Once the trainee meets certain goals, they are promoted to a trianing position. Usually the goal is to prove consistency in sales. After that, they need to prove the ability to successfully interview, train, and develop a sales force that can maintain basic sales goals.This demonstrates their ability to build their own organization. At that point they are promoted to a management position, where their end goal is to open up their own business in a very aggressive time frame of less than a year.
These are comission based positions that have very low commission and a lot of expectation. They include generating leads or working with cold leads.

I have worked for the Cydcor branches of companies before, There is a lot of promises and not a lot of followthrough. In addition, it is a lot harder to meet the "sales goals" than they make it sound, and it is very difficult to build a team of people in this type of environment because nobody wants to do these types of sales jobs because they don't pay enough. There is also a lot of favoritism involved, and some interesting business and management practices because most of the individuals that get promoted to management don't really have enough experience managing others to really be good at it.
