    2nd Round interview someone took me to grab a soda (don't drink coffee). Explained compensation, timeframe, and job responsibilities. Then asked me 8 -10 questions. Then did the final round interview with Yasmine. Then I was allowed to go for the day. Offered the position the next day.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Zerin Business Consulting in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and went in about a week later after being called for an interview. You confirm via text. You see, what initially interested me is the extremely misleading name. This is not a consulting firm, it's a door to door sales. They didn't even tell me that at the interview.

    Junior Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Zerin Business Consulting in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    The company found my resume through my school career website and invited me in for an interview. The representative said she will send me an email to confirm the time, date, and information for the interview. However, I never received an email and had to call back to confirm. When I came to the interview, the interviewer told me it was a 3-round interview.

    The first round was very brief and I was asked a few basic questions but did not receive any more information regarding the position. The second round was basically a conversation where I can hear more about the job and what I have to do. The job itself is basically going door to door to sell Verizon packages and you receive commissions based on how many you sold during the day.

    Interview Questions
    • - Based on your past experiences, what do you think are three attributes that helped you to succeed?
      - What is one area you would like to improve on?
      - Where do you see yourself five years from now?

    The prospect of going door to door selling Verizon packages did not seem appealing to me.

    Entry Level Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Basically, they find applicants who have posted their resumes to job posting websites and call them back. I do not even believe they checked my resume and after sitting down and speaking with the CEO and assistant manager, they basically told me how I will be making six-figures within a few years. Sounded like a sales pitch to find job applicants; in fact just plain desperate. Very few people actually stuck through the training and advance on from what I recall.

    Reasons for Declining

    The interviewer was extremely unprofessional. In addition to the above, she spent most of the time on the phone on personal calls. The topics should not have been spoken about in front of fellow employees let alone someone who was interviewing.

    Management Training Programs Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting.

    Interview Details

    They'll call you first and as long as you can hold a decent conversation you'll get through to the next round. For the second round you go into their office for 2 hours or so and they ask you a few basic questions, but spend most of the time telling you about the job. They spend so much time on it because its probably not what you were expecting. They want you to start out going door to door selling FIOS in DC, but emphasize the options to advance beyond that. I think this would be a good option for someone who does not have a specific skill set and is willing to work hard because they teach you everything, but its not something would expect most college grads to go for.

    I recieved a call from Zerin regarding a resume that I submitted. I was interested in the management trainee program. The interview was very brief. I figured out during the interview that the job is essentially telemarketing, not related to consulting at all.

    Sales Department Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Zerin Business Consulting in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a Zerin recruiter who had come across my resume on Monster or some other site that I had it on. The position was in the sales department. It was not my typical area of expertise as I'm more design focused marketing. I had a quick phone call with the recruiter and was asked standard questions regarding why I was looking for a job, was I willing to relocate etc. After I set up an interview with the manger I received an email. The conversation with the manager was very focused on the processes and systems the sales department uses. This was about 30 minutes and the manager was a pleasure to talk to. He had a great sense of humor and the conversation although technical was enjoyable and relaxed.
