I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vector Marketing (Emeryville, CA).
The hiring process began with a phone call follow up to me submitting my resume online. I was scheduled to come in to meet with the local office manager, but there was no mention of how many people would be there. I was told to dress professionally. I arrived to the office to find several other people already there filling out papers. We all filled out basic paperwork about ourselves and went to a separate room where we met the manager for the first time. He asked us general questions about marketing, but the real focus of the "interview" was the product he was selling. From then on the "interview" felt like an infomercial, with him calling up members of the "audience" to assist him with his demonstrations. We all got a chance to meet with him one-on-one after the presentation. His office was full of awards and framed checks from his illustrious sales career. He asked basic questions I cannot recall anymore, but the one-on-one was short. I left feeling bewildered, but still not totally opposed to working for the company. I received a call from him about an hour later telling me I got the job. I discovered that all but a couple of people from my interview group had been hired, and so began one of the weirdest experiences of my life.

Group interview and one on one interview. The point was to see if you're willing to work for them. You obviously say yes since you want the job. But it wasn't low key at all. My-part time job feels like a full time. You've gotta make sales call all the time to schedule appointments. Supervisors are really pushy about you making appointments with clients. Do research first before coming into their office.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vector Marketing (Anaheim, CA) in September 2015.
at the time of my interview, I walked into the office and signed in. I also filled out a couple forms. When I finished, I was interviewed by one of the managers. After the first interview, I was lucky to make it to the second one about 30 minutes later. And in this part, we learned more in detail about the company and its product.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vector Marketing (Newark, DE) in September 2015.
Went in thinking this was an hourly support position; turned out to be a cold call sales job that relies on leads YOU bring THEM (mostly friends and family). They target naive students, mostly. They suggested I "wouldn't be a good fit" if I wasn't willing to cold call my personal social network.

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Vector Marketing (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in September 2015.
Had a call from a qualifier, who set up my interview appointment. The office location is behind a cheap motel in a strip mall which was not easy to find. I got there early and went in to a small poorly decorated room with a small table. The interviewer came out and asked me to fill out one of the forms on the table. After 10 mins, He returned to collect me and the form. The interview itself was quite short, pretty straight and to the point questions about my current job and situation. There was only one question that stood out (see below). The interview was over within 10 mins with a statement - They will either call or won't call. After the qualifying call, I did some research - Understanding that this position was for a door to door knife salesman. The experience was the main reason I followed through with the interview. The job was not anywhere in my field and probably why they didn't call.

The first interview is very easy; there are a couple of group interviews after the first. They are full of numbers game tactics. They give you as little information up-front as possible, then try to get you to give them the phone numbers of everyone in your contacts list so they can make the "receptionists", i.e. recruiters, call them.

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vector Marketing.
I got a letter in the mail advertising summer customer service work and I called the number and set up an interview the same day. I arrived and there were a bunch of other people waiting in the lobby and the receptionist pointed to a sign that said to fill out an application and wait for the interviewer.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Vector Marketing (Bronx, NY).
When I got there i had to fill out a form, which included my name, dob and past jobs etc. A few people were asked to identify themselves based on the past experiences on the form. Then, there was a group interview and questions were randomly asked. The one's that stood out would get an opportunity to join the company along with the candidates already selected from the pile.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vector Marketing (Berkeley, CA).
You are individually screened by the manager in a separate room usually, asking you basic questions about your involvement in the area, and whether you've committed a felony. Then altogether as a group you are brought into a separate room where there is a group interview. There are basic questions asked of the group that the manager expects either everyone or will ask a specific person to answer. They go over the product, the company, and the sales model, doing some product demonstrations, before sending you home. Usually they call the same day to tell you whether you will be brought on for training or not.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vector Marketing (Cutler Bay, FL) in July 2015.
The interview process is broken down into three parts. First it begins with a 1-on-1 pre-screening where a manager asks a few questions about your goals and personality to get a better idea of who you are. If they like what they hear, they will invite you to stay for the second interview which is conducted in a group setting. In this second part, you will view a presentation about the Vector company and what they intend to accomplish. You will be expected to take notes on the presentation as it goes along and engage in the questions being asked to the group. The manager told us that about 80% of the hiring decision comes from this part of the interview so put your best foot forward. The last part is the final interview which is done 1-on-1 with the manager, where he or she will ask you a few final questions to recap on the whole presentation.
