Direct Marketing, Management Training Program Interview

Direct Marketing, Management Training Program
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Smart Circle in April 2012.

Interview Details – Smart Circle is the parent company of several other smaller companies owned by the managers they have trained from the bottom up. I got hired by WC International and so far it has been a great experience. I see criticisms for how many people they hire all over the Internet, but it is not an easy job and they constantly have to fill positions from people that are not cut out for it. Some people will be close-minded and call that an excuse but it is true. Working for Worldwide Concepts/Smart Circle is a huge opportunity, especially if you are business-minded but have a different degree such as education or science.

Interview Question – What attracted you to this company? What are your thoughts on starting at the bottom so that when you are a manager you understand what the people you are managing are going through?   View Answer
