    Merchandising Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Migrated from Marketforce. Completed many contracts prior to reactivating with Spar Business Services. Nothing much else to say really other than the online system Marketforce used was much more up front and provided a lot more "current" data so you really understood what you were walking into.

    Negotiation Details
    Straightforward. I would recommend asking for as much information on the location as possible, as this was not provided to me prior to going in. Who am I working with? Who is the team lead? Is the project on time? Etc. Ask, ask, ask.

    Account Manager, Client Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at SPAR Group.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was very standard. I had 2 interviews with 1 Director each time. Mostly focused on how I would contribute to the team. Also since most Account Managers work closely with their Director they try to get a feel for your personality to ensure you are a good fit.

    Interview Questions
    • Open ended questions...Tell me a time you and a manager did not agree on a course of action? What did you do? How did you overcome the disagreement?

      Why should we hire you over the other candidates?
        Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Pay here is really not negotiable...expect 30K for supervisor and higher 30's to low 40's for account managers.
