    Entry Level Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vienna, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Zerin Business Consulting (Vienna, VA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    The interview is a 2 step process. The first step is a general meet and greet where the Interviewer asks generic questions such as strengths and weaknesses. After this round of interview they will send you an email where they invite you for the second round (almost everyone gets through this). The second round interview is a job shadow where you spend the whole day with one of their existing employees. After this process, if you like them they will offer you a job.

    Negotiation

    The job is 100% commission with zero benefits. Not much room for negotiations.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Zerin Business Consulting (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    At first the job seemed very professional and high level but after I went through the interview process I found that the job was not what I expected it to be at all. I was given very little real information as to what the job actually was and when I was offered a position I was not given a contract to review before hand. They seemed to dance around a lot of my questions and I soon realized why since it ended up not being what I though it was and ended up being door to door sales.

    Once I realized that it was door to door sales and commission based only I declined

    Entry Level Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tysons Corner, VA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Zerin Business Consulting (Tysons Corner, VA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was laid back and easy. They kept the questions strictly on the company. In the first interview, they had already mentioned what is going to happen in the second Interview. Overall they don't mention what kind of job this is at all. But I did a little bit of research and found out that I'm being hired for door to door sales position. I just went for practice in the interview process since I recently graduated and am in the job search.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Zerin Business Consulting (McLean, VA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume to many companies on my college website and this was one of the companies to contact me back. They spoke with me over the phone to verify some info from my resume. The man I talked to over the phone was nice and helpful. I took the metro to the office in Tyson's Corner to avoid the mall traffic, but afterwards with I would have taken my car because the traffic was not that bad. I met 3 people from the company on the interview; the receptionist, who I ended up finding out we grew up a few streets from each other. The assistant manager came and introduced herself to me while I was waiting to meet with the manager. I met with the manager, he was straight down to business. He had reviewed my resume so didn't ask any repeat questions from it but questions more so directed towards work ethic and how I interact with others. I was invited for another interview where I met with another employee and shadowed them for a day while they made business visits with customers. I was not offered a position.

    Junior Executive Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Zerin Business Consulting (McLean, VA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    First of all, I didn't realize that the two companies, Zerin Business Consulting and Omega Business Consulting are sharing the same office and they are partners. I got interviews for both companies and that's when I found it strange. I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist until I met the hiring manager, and then we went through my resume and experience, and who, what the company is and what they do, nothing about the position duties and responsibilities, when I asked, the hiring manager said they will talk about it at the second round interview which is shadowing someone who work there. At the end I asked the relationship between ZBC and OBC, he claimed that they are partners, and they will share information, so that I don't have to show up for the afternoon interview with OBC.

    Interview

    I spoke with the Organizational Admin Consultant a few times, then she sent me one page worth of questions to answer, I then wrote my answers and submitted them. They reviewed my paper, and accepted me for the internship. I started it a few days after being accepted. Overall, it was a very easy process!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Zerin Business Consulting (McLean, VA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I didn't apply for this position actually, I was called based on my resume uploaded to a career website. Prior to the interview I read about the company and the interview here so I knew what to expect. I was interviewed by the CEO and he told me that this would be the 1st round of a three-round process. It was just 10 mins with easy questions. I didn't need to introduce myself and he was not interested in my work experience. He didn't say anything about the position, but I asked him if it really is a door-to-door sales position and then he said yes it is. I was selected for the 2nd round but I declined, door-to-door sales is not my thing,

    I applied online – interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting.

    Interview

    Applied through career builder and they called me the next morning! Left a message and sent me an email. I asked the interviewer what the real duties of the job are and to give a better question and she tried to change the subject or just dodge the question. And then finally she said it's door to door sale after asking many times. Very unprofessional and unethical. They prey on desperate job seekers.

    Junior Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in McLean, VA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Zerin Business Consulting (McLean, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First interview: on the phone, they described themselves as a business consulting firm and emphasized that they consult other businesses in marketing their products. Secondary interview: they take you out for lunch or coffee and tell you what the business REALLY is. Which is NOT a business consulting firm. They are actually a direct marketing firm. Meaning you will be working from 11am-8pm walking around neighborhoods selling other company's products and services door to door. They even are willing to send people alone to do this (very dangerous). The place in which I was taken was so loud I could barely hear the interviewer, which may have been intentional. This company also is actually created through another company and their clients are given to them from this other company that remains nameless to you until you own your own firm. A company that does not wish for any association to it's own branch does not sound like a safe bet. Let alone the already blatant disregard for employee safety walking door to door.
