    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..

    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".

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at SHI International.

    Interview

    It was very comfortable. First you meet with a recruiter and then with a head of the department. Very friendly and they just want to make sure you are a good fit for the position. Be aware of what you will be required to do and show your enthusiasm. A lot of young people within the office.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at SHI International (Austin, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Quick phone interview to gauge your interest. In person interview with recruiter, then with hiring manager. The recruiter is very nice and doesn't present many challenging questions. The hiring manager tends to put you on the spot. I believe this is done to see if you can handle the pressures of cold calling. They are looking for a positive reaction to negatively portrayed scenarios.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at SHI International.

    Interview

    Basic phone conversation with an internal recruiter, and then an in person interview with two members of upper management. Basic questions such as, "explain what SHI does", and "why do you want to be in sales?". I heard that after this interview there would be another person to talk to, I'm guessing the person that would had hired me, but unfortunately I was not selected to go on. It probably would had been easy to move on but I answered some questions horribly and was extremely nervous. I learned a lot from it though.
