    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at The Campus Special (Greenville, NC).

    Interview

    Called unexpectedly without an email. When they called we had a 30 minute conversation and I was confident in my call back. Once I got a call back (that was also unscheduled) my phone reception was bad so it was tough to talk to the woman. She asked me questions about things I knew about campus special and how I would handle a situation if a business told me know where I was trying to sell them Ad space. I never got a call back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at The Campus Special.

    Interview

    There is a screening interview and then a phone interview. The screening interview ask basic questions such as: where do you go to school, what is your major, are you active in an clubs/societies/activies. The phone interview has some of those same questions and also asks you to role play a situation for them (gives you a taste of what the internship will really be like and they can get a feel of how your personality and skills will be).

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They gave me a call and offered me the position and I said yes. They send you to a conference for a weekend in chicago and you get to meet all the other new interns throughout the country. It's really fun and the training is great!

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at The Campus Special in March 2014.

    Interview

    Met a recruiter at a job fair and was contacted by someone from corporate shortly afterwards. He requested an interview over the phone but I wasn't really sure what the position was so I asked. He assured me that the details of the position would be explained during the first interview, so I accepted that. When I was called for the interview, I was told "We have a lot to get through, so let's get started". Before I interviewed I wanted to know what the position entailed so I asked, but was told that they conduct the interview before saying what the job is. When I asked why, he said they want to know if I'm a good candidate before they tell me. I responded saying the opposite - I wanted to know if the position was for me before spending my time on an interview. The recruiter said he expected that I would have checked out their website to see what they do (which I obviously had), however knowing about a company provides no insight into what a specific position is. The interaction ended with me saying I wasn't interested in the position anymore - I have no interest in working with a company that does business like that.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Campus Special in March 2014.

    Interview

    Online application. You get a phone call within a week or two. Then you have a phone interview, which is simple easy questions and they talk to you about the internship program. After that they set you up with a skype like interview. You answer 7 questions while being recorded through your webcam. The questions pop up on your screen and you have anywhere from 5-10 seconds to prepare. Last question you have to give a basic sales pitch. Mine was to convince someone to create a facebook that never had one before and has relocated to a new city. After this you have a final phone interview. More interview questions and they go over your video interview as well.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at The Campus Special (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    You will be asked to do two phone interviews and one online video interview. The first phone interview will be with your sales manager, the second phone interview will be done with your sales director (or if he is unavailable with your sales manager again). These interviews will be broken up by a video interview with prerecorded questions that you have approximately 2 minuets to answer.

    Negotiation

    The pay is non-negotiable but a 10% commission rate for an internship is already very high for an internship. The best way to convince them that you are a viable candidate is to show that you are a hard worker and you are easily capable of connecting with people.

    Interview

    I received a phone call about 3 days after submitting an application. The phone interview basically went over your resume. The next step is a video interview through a website then another interview. Everything is commissioned based and you'll be successful if you live in a place that isn't small like mines since you are required to at least go to 30 different businesses a day without any gas reimbursement.

    Reasons for Declining

    I need money to be able to pay bills and gas during the summertime. Also I felt like my town was too small to meet the requirement of 30 business visits a day.

Pros: “Great opportunity to get your feet wet in the sales world. You learn a lot about dealing wit: leads, old customers, cold calling and negotiation.

You get to travel to Chicago for a 3 day conference where you meet hundreds of intern and your supervisor. They try to make your learn ask much as you can during that time about campus special and how to sell the product. The reality is that the time for it is to short to learn everything, but the first week of work you will eventually learn the basics. Overall is a great internship i which i learned so much about sales. It will look good on your resume and probably open doors in the future. Is not an easy internship, but i will pay out in the long term.” – Full Review
