    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at hibu in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    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 Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at hibu in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at hibu in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    It was a very detailed interview process. It was the most honest and straightforward interview I have ever been through. No one was blowing smoke and it was refreshing to have it be so honest.

    The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at hibu in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I was headhunted by a recruiter, who set up the interview. They assured me that there was almost no turnover, and that the company was doing fine...not the case

    The process took 2 months - interviewed at hibu in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    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.

    The process took a day - interviewed at hibu in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I am a 36 years old black male and I have applied to Yellow Book twice with no success. I am a Presidents Club award winner have been in the yellow page industry for 12 years. I have also learned website development and I am a 4.0 communications major. I have had great interviews with little if anything that i felt was a deal breaker as I look back. Unfortunately each time I receive an email where in the span of a day they have found a more qualified person to fill the position. I feel that if I do not receive a fair assessment of my interview or a good explanation, I will have to hire an attorney to get to the bottom of this matter. Stay tuned.
