I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Vocus in April 2013.

Sales Associate Interview

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Vocus.

Interview Details – Highly unprofessional, took forever to get back with me, wrong person came into the interview room, seems to be ran by young people that have no real experience, very few people working in the office, interviewer "doodled" while I spoke on his note pad, and seemed to be bored with the whole situation, he also came off very unprofessional and below average intelligence, he noted he was once a teacher, good thing this guy is out of the classroom!

Interview Question – None, they were softball questions   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Unprofessional, took a long time to get in contact with me, from initial contact, interview, post interview

PR Software Representative Interview

PR Software Representative
Beltsville, MD

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Vocus in February 2014.

Interview Details – I was contacted within 2 weeks after replying to a posting on LinkedIn and spent about 20 minutes talking to a recruiter based out of North Carolina. I was asked to come into the Beltsville office for an interview at the end of the week. I went arrived and toured the facility and was dropped off in an interview room. I spoke with two recruiters/managers about the position and how they were looking to expand the team. It was very casual meeting and was ask very broad questions. They ask me to take a writing skills assessment and that was it. I was told a follow up would come the following week. Two weeks later, I after following up twice on my OWN, I got a generic rejection letter. The fact I had to contact them really shows how little they care about the "talent" they bring in.

Interview Question – Tell us how you would handle a difficult client/customer.   Answer Question
