    Interview Details

    I applied online in the sweltering summer and was actually interviewed six months later. Go mergers. Hired a couple of months later. The interview was easy and not long at all. The managers were easy going and knowledgeable. The culture was slack and egos held at minimum. Salaries were horrible but maybe this was for the best-scared away the world's horrible people.

    Director, Business Development Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at VMS in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    Initial resume was sent to hiring authority, that person called and interviewed me on the phone and then a 1:1 interview outside of the office. When I was asked to join the company, I was then introduced to the office staff and other managers. The people were very nice and easy to work with. However, I soon realized that non-manager 'staff" were not allowed to express opinions about potential product solutions, the competition or add any value of service to the clients they supported unless directed to do so by management.

    Junior Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at VMS in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    I was first interviewed over the phone by an HR manager to see if I qualify for the position. The second interview was also a phone interview by a sales manager, very professional guy who asked a couple of brief questions. I got the sense that he just wanted to hear my phone voice. A week later I was brought in for an in person interview at their offices. The same sales manager interviewed me. We reviewed the position, including some expectations as well as my prior sales experience and my salary expectations. Two weeks later I was brought in to interview with the VP of Sales. This was the most frustrating interview but helped me get the offer. It didn't seem as if she had even glanced at my resume and the purpose was to micromanage her staff. She asked about my experience and asked how many calls a day I made to prospects and what my "farming" strategy was. I received an offer two weeks later.

    Interview Questions
    • Probably would be the "farming" strategy question, because I had no clue what she meant.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They gave an offer which I countered for $5k more and they countered with a offer $2k more than the original and offered a bonus, which ended up being unreliable.
