    Interview Details

    You come in and read from a script slide like an acting audition, next they will either have you come back around noon or 1. "There is a 98% chance you will be asked to come back" you really only need a pulse to get hired. If you decide to come back around noon or 1 for round 2, they will show a video and give a brief explanation of the job. Which in reality its "lies lies and more lies".

    Sales Agent Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at US Jesco.

    Interview Details

    They'll show up and ask you to memorize a short script for one of their products. They like to target actors for this job, because of the fact that there's a script to memorize, by the way. If you "pass" the first interview (they call these "auditions" instead), then they'll give you a callback for a second interview. For this, they have you and all of the other callbacks sit down while they tell you a bit about the company. Don't pay attention to the estimated paycheck values that they give you, as it's an exaggeration. Considering it is a sales job, be sure to take the interview with a grain of salt, just like you would a sales pitch.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carrollton, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at US Jesco in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    This is technically an internship so the interview was pretty basic and informal. If I remember correctly, I was contacted by Heather, who runs HR, to come in for an interview at the office. I met Lauren Melton, the creative director, and we went through my portfolio and resume. He asked some questions about my skills, background, what I hope to get out the job, etc. And he talked to me about the company, the kind of work they do, the kind of products they make, and the kinds of projects I'd be working on. It was brief but informative. They got back to me pretty quickly with a "you're hired."

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. I knew already that it was a part time gig with an hourly rate of $10.

    Live Infomercial Position Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  North Hollywood, CA
    Anonymous Employee in North Hollywood, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at US Jesco in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    It's a two day interview/audition. The first day we were given copy of part of a sales pitch and read before two people - the Director of HR and the direct supervisor of the part of the city we'd work in. If you make it past this round you'll be called to come for a call back the next day.

    The callback is actually a group informational meeting. There were 18 of us and we listened for over an hour as the Director of HR, the direct supervisor and an experienced sales rep told us about US Jesco, what our role would be, what our compensation is and what benefits we can get by working there.

    The base pay for beginners is 50 dollars per day plus a very small percentage of the items that we manage to sell. There are two shifts per day 9-3 and 3-9. It can be in a variety of stores within a 70 miles radius of Downtown Los Angeles. We aren't responsible for setting up or taking down the stage we'd work on but were told that we should arrive a little early to do whatever prep work is needed (prepare vegetable, make sure everything we'd need is there, etc) before we being our shift.

    After the informational part was over we were told to wait outside and they would bring us in one at a time for quick interviews. In the interview I was asked if there was anything that would prevent me from doing the 3 weeks of training, could I memorize the script, could I do full time and would I have a problem traveling all over the city. I said I had no problems and was ready to get to work.

    After the interview was finished they told me I would be e-mailed by 6 PM to let me know if I was hired or not. I was notified that I didn't get the job, which surprised me because of the positive feedback I had gotten during my initial read and for my positive and enthusiastic responses during the brief interview. I have no idea how many people out of the 18 they hired but they did repost the job listing again briefly so there seems to be something specific they are looking for in a person.

    Interview Details

    They usually give you a paragraph from their script to read, and if you are at all literate, have proper availability, and don't look like an addict, they'll call you back. They then go into a sales pitch in the call back, and love to stretch the truth. Many times they outright lie.

    Interview Questions
    • They ask three questions: "Are you comfortable with 100% commission?" "Why do you think you're the right person for the job?" "We saw a lot of people today and don't have very many positions available. Out of everyone, why should we pick YOU?"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There are no negotiations.
