I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at SkillSoft in April 2012.
Interview Details – The interview process was pretty short, considering i had the right background and experience for the job. However, the answers i received to my questions about the compensation were deceitful, not that I was told outright lies, just that i wasn't told everything about the territory divisions and compensation plan when i asked.
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at SkillSoft in September 2010.
Interview Details –
For a job that just pays 37K they sure are picky. Honestly I had other opportunities that paid more and did not expect me to interview in person with a different employee every other day.
I did three in person interviews and then the mock call. They base the ultimate decision on that mock call. Skillsoft gives very few details for the scenario and expects you to know detailed information about their products. The focus should be on the call flow and not throwing out objections that is product specific. You learn that in training. For example saying "i am not interested" or "now is not a good time" are better objections to throw out in a mock call.
In retrospect I probably dodged a bullet. After reading the reviews of employees on this site and others I am glad they did not want me.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at SkillSoft in December 2011.
Interview Details – I had a great phone interview with the recruiter and then was invited to a group of one on one interviews. The room had no natural light and did not show off the best parts of the company. The hiring manager definitely took the time beforehand to review my resume, but the others did not.
