    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at SHI International (Austin, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Met with the HR representative and Account Manager. They were both quick and to the point, assertive with their questions and wanted to see if you would respond similarly. The format of both interviews was like that, about 10 big questions each about your background and if you would be someone that could be an asset to effectively bring more customers in for them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at SHI International (Austin, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was an easy interview, essentially all they ask is that you explain your resume. It is important to note that they are looking for individuals who they think are competitive. It is a very laid back atmosphere and a young environment. I was not very interested in the position and I think they could tell I did not really consider it a career option, because of the low base salary..

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at SHI International (Austin, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I scheduled the interview with one of their HR people. The interview was short and pleasant, but was not done with the Hiring Manager so it seemed like kind of a waste of time. I was pretty disappointed that I didn't get the job. The company reminded me of the movie "Boiler Room".

    Interview

    Fast process. Applied and had a phone interview within two days of applying. Then invited to an in person interview which was scheduled a week after phone interview. Final decisions where made within 5 days of formal interview. They have a high employee turnover rate, so they are always hiring new people.

    Inside Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at SHI International (Austin, TX) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Quick turnaround. I applied online, was called in for an interview, and offered the job within a week. The length of hiring process will depend on when their next training class begins for this position and if you already have a job. They're hiring a lot of people right now (20/month) and have an awesome training program set up that begins around the first or second week of each month. Ex) Applied in mid November, received offer, put in 2 weeks notice at current job (around Thanksgiving, so it was like 2.5 weeks), training class began December 9th.

    Negotiation

    I tried to negotiate, but there are no negotiations. All Inside Account Executives make 30k + commission. The commission plan is one of the best around and after 4-6 months of cold calling, persistence, and a lot of determination, you'll be well on your way to making 50-60k
