Entry Level Junior Executive Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Tysons Corner, VA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tysons Corner, VA
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting in September 2014.

Interview Details

I submitted an application via careerbuilder and was contacted aggressively within the week for an interview.

The initial request for an interview was via e-mail, with a follow-up interview over the phone the next morning before I was able to respond to the e-mail. Rachel, in human resources, requested that I be available for an interview the next day on short notice. When I asked to interview the next week, due to other work commitments she stated she would have to talk to management.

I followed up with her via email asking for more information on the position and responsibilities, stating that I was not looking for a sales position she responded with an absolutely vague, important sounding position title that gave no information on the duties.

Ultimately, I officially withdrew my application after that via e-mail for several reasons:

-the HR specialist I spoke with seemed too young, and expressed herself too casually

-despite my inquires the HR representative presented false information and failed to directly answer my questions

This is a great company for recent graduates that have no qualms about working in an aggressive, fast-paced environment that are young, and want experience, but if you're looking for a more complex role in a developed organization this isn't the place for you.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting.

    Interview Details

    Received a phone call Thursday morning from a cheerful young lady who found my resume on a job board and said that I was an ideal candidate for a position at her company. She asked if the Falls Church area was still good for me. She spoke very fast and didn't explain anything. I thought it was a joke. Nonetheless, I scheduled an interview for the following afternoon. I emailed her and asked for a position description and read some reviews online. Turned out to be a glorified door to door sales position.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by Zerin's HR person and asked if I would be interested in coming in for an interview. I had never heard of the company but figured I would come in and see if it was interesting. The initial interview was very short and easy, and I got called back within a couple hours inviting me in for a follow up interview. The second interview seemed to be more of a personality interview than anything else. I had coffee with one of the Executives and then another brief interview with the CEO, all easy questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    There was a series of 2 phone calls before I went to the office for an interview. The interview was located in the business district in the Tyson's corner area. When I got to the office there were a few other people there to be interviewed as well. I thought there was going to be a long wait since I obviously came in after them but there were 3 different managers interviewing for a few different positions and internships. The interview went well the lady who interviewed me said she would meet with the hiring team and call me back later in the evening.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Had an easy phone interview in which it seemed like anybody who could have energy and not screw up would move onto the next stage. At the face to fact interview I walk into the office and within five minutes another interviewer and I were headed out with two employees to shadow them for the day. During the ride to locations the employee in the passenger seat read through our resumes and asked us questions about it. After they got through the resumes they asked your general interview questions. The rest of the day we walked door to door with them and saw how they sold verizon fios to homeowners or tried to upgrade those that already had it.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    This company is completely misleading with the way that it presents itself. First of all, the "junior executive" position is not anything like an "executive" position. It is a door-to-door sales job. Secondly, I am 95% sure that all of these positive (read: overly positive/enthusiastic) reviews of this company are written by employees of the company. It is painfully obvious to anyone with half a brain if you read through the reviews/interviews section of Zerin that they wrote the great reviews themselves. Sad business practice, and a "business" doomed to fail.

    Reasons for Declining

    Misrepresenting themselves, no moral compass, no business ethic.

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I went into the first interview and felt very comfortable with the people who I talked to. The interview went really well, it was a one on one interview with the owner of the company. He was super nice and very down to earth and seems like a really great guy. He asked questions such as: why did you choose to go to the university you went to? What are 3 qualities you feel are your best attributes? What is something you think you can improve on? Tell me about your leadership experience? Why marketing? Why Zerin? What is something that stuck out about us? What do you like to do for fun? I received a call after my interview asking for a second interview. I took the interview because this job seemed really great. I was told they would send me an email with more details and never received it. I showed up and was asked if I cleared my schedule until 8:00pm. I had not because no one told me to but luckily I had nothing going on. Next thing I knew I was being taken somewhere with a current employee and was not told much about what was going on. I had to ask very specifically what was going on and it seemed like they did not want to tell me. Understandably so because next thing I knew we were pulling into a neighborhood and knocking on peoples doors. It was a door to door salesman job. I was so mad. They are not upfront about this aspect of the job and make it seem like it is normal. If you are a college graduate you should not be fooled by their persuasive talk about how this can become a great career eventually. They broke down the pay scale and it was absurd. There is no way someone coming out of college could pay for living and food and gas with the amount of money they offer. You pay for your own gas and are traveling anwhere between 15 minutes to an hour away every day selling to people who want nothing to do with you. The office is great and the people who work there are very nice, but the job itself is crap. I did not think it was a safe job, and when I brought this up they looked at me like I was nuts. I received a call after my second interview offering me a third interview and I declined.
