    I applied online - interviewed at Telefund.

    Interview Details

    I applied for several positions above the level of caller. Had four interviews with them and they just never followed up. After every interview they never told me when the next one was. I felt as if I was just being interviewed as a formality.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Telefund in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Submitted application information via their website and was called back two days for a telephone interview.She asked me if I was familiar with any of the abbreviated campaign names that she read off. I told her no but I'm familiar with campaign telemarketing because I did work at another company. she said well if you work at that company and you should be familiar with some of these campaigns. I told her the campaigns I worked on which were not the ones that she read to me. She then told me that maybe I should go to their website and read more about their company and she can we interview me without prejudice.
