Regional Sales Manager Interview
I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Smart Meetings (Sausalito, CA) in September 2013.
Interviews process was good ... consisting of three interviews with different team members and a good practice of challenging your experience to prove your value.
Typical we offer this, I want this, settle in middle

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Smart Meetings (Sausalito, CA).
Phone screening. Psychological profile (that is easy to trick). In person interview. Husband and wife ownership try to play off each other (good cop/bad cop) but they are not very effective. They will parade you around the office and other staff looks at you like you are meat. Annoying dog will lick your shoes.
- How are you doing to make me money? Answer Question
No negotiation. Take it or leave it.

I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Smart Meetings (Sausalito, CA) in July 2011.
Met with advertising manager, publisher and "CFO" (publisher's husband).
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.
