    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at hibu (King of Prussia, PA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter and had a phone screening. went on to meet with two regional managers for my area at their corporate office in King of Prussia. Gave the 2nd manager alot of pushback on why I thought I could excel at this job even though he kept bringing up his concerns. Got a call two days later to do a ride along with a seasoned rep. less than a week later I did the ride along and got a feel for the job and more importantly the rep got a feel for me to report back to my potential manager. Got a call two days asking what I thought and offered me the position on the spot. Total process took 3 weeks or so

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at hibu (Cedar Rapids, IA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Originally I went through a hiring agency (not sure if they still go through them or not), got a quick response, interviewed with them once, then interviewed with the manager, got the job - process took about one and a half months. The location was all in one spot so it was pretty easy, and everyone was very easy going.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at hibu (Atlanta, GA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    The process is long, very long. After a phone screen, there is a face to face interview, then another, then a ride along. The interview was pretty basic. Nothing stands out, just be prepared to talk alot about you and your accomplishments. And DO bring a brag book of what you have done in the past.

    Application

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at hibu in March 2012.

    Interview

    There are 3 rounds to the interview. Phase one is a sit down with your area manager and pretty basic interview. At the end of the interview they will tell you they are going to call you to set up the next appointment. Just tell them you are ready to set it up right now. That will show the "hunter' sales mentality they want. Phase two is a "ride day" with a present media consultant you ride around and go door to door all day. If you're not awkward and can talk to people this is easy just sit back and see what they do on a day to day basis. Phase Three is with a regional manager basically introducing you to the job. If you get to phase three you probably have the job already. They basically just tell you what to expect.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at hibu (Lisle, IL) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Extremly long interview process, 60 days from intial phone interview. 3 1:1 interviews, half a day spent doing a ride day with sales rep.. Was told the job offer would be extended after ride day if I felt I would enjoy the work. A week past and I did not hear from them, I contacted the Sales Manager and was told they placed from within, total disrespect for my time, I'm certain they would not have contacted to tell me I was no longer being considered.
