    Director, Meetings & Events Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Smart Meetings in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was typical of a director level position. Initial telephone interviews where conducted, follow-up telephone interviews, with multiple face to face interviews. I visited a live event and we spoke about outcomes and benefits of the event. We brainstormed on how I might see doing the event differently - it was a fun and engaging experience overall.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Smart Meetings.

    Interview Details

    Usually a 2 or 3X interview process with the CEO and CFO. You will be grilled on how well you know their product so make sure you do your homework. you will also be asked to take a personality test, and unless you are a perfect match, you won't get the job since they use it as a litmis test instead of looking at your track record. You will also be asked if you are willing to travel 2+ weeks per month and work on weekends with no comp time.

    Regional Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sausalito, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sausalito, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Smart Meetings in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Met with advertising manager, publisher and "CFO" (publisher's husband).

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Didn't negotiate anything. Don't work here unless you have a tolerance for insults, demoralization, lame office with barking dogs that come to work with the publisher and CFO, long days 12-26 hours) of travelling by plane and car with little or no return, unrealistic meal expenses, and no growth or advancement potential. There is no plan in place as to what is being done to market the product, which is primarily a slick-looking monthly magazine for the meeting planning community. Advertising from hotels, convention bureaus, casinos with hotels and meeting rooms. The sales staff is back-biting and underhanded. the company plays a shell game with sales by changing budgets and goals and keeping you on the road so no goals are met and commissions stay lower than the potential you're told you can make. Run away as fast as you can from the idea of working at this sweat shop.
