iSqFt Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Very Easy Interview
Bid Content Caller Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4 days - interviewed at iSqFt in September 2013.
Interview Details – it was one interview. maybe there was a phone interview first, but i'm not sure about that. you have to go through a temp agency. if there is more to the process than walking in an interviewing with HR, anything else is quick enough that i don't remember. it was really, really easy to get this job. they tend to hire and then fire, as opposed to interview rigorously.
my interview was with two people, but only one really asked any questions. the one that turned out to be one of my managers asked questions. i never saw the other again. unlike other interviews, i had no idea who these people where -- as in their roles at the company -- when i was interviewing.
they called me either later that day or next to tell me i had the job continent on the drug screen and background check. the screening process did not take long.
i overheard managers talking about candidates all the time after interviews. they are checking to make sure you are not a office drama queen, that you have enough work ethic to show up on time and work, that you are are well spoken -- much of the work is phone and email based -- and that you are competent and computer literate enough to be able to get it done.
Interview Question – none of the questions where that difficult. though the first question was "what did you do to prepare for this interview?"as soon as i sat down. View Answer
Negotiation Details – there is no negotiation. it's $11 an hour. when i worked there, this is what everyone in the department started at. you start through a temp agency. even if you go to them directly, you're hired through a temp agency.

Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary Answer Question
Technical Support Representative Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at iSqFt.
Interview Details – I applied for the job and was contacted the same day by an HR rep. I had two interviews, the first one being a 30 minute interview with the HR rep that initially contacted me. The second one was 1 1/2 hours where I sat with two groups of two. This interview was a little more intense then the first, with more questions about my technical background. I walked away from both interviews with an over all good feeling. I felt like the interviews were conducted in a good fashion and nothing that was asked or talked about left me feeling uncomfortable.
- The most difficult question they asked that comes to mind was, to give them an example of a time when I had to deal with a customer/client that was having issues and very frustrated. They wanted to know how I helped this person. Answer Question
- They also asked the standard question, what is one of your strengths and what is one of you weaknesses. ( I always hate this question ). Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I tried to negotiate my salary, and when they got back to me they informed me that the original offer was firm.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at iSqFt in December 2010.
Interview Details – Not a tough interview. They will make the job out to be much harder and more glorious than it is. If you have solid sales experience and carry yourself well this should be a breeze for you. Dress in a suit and tie.
Negotiation Details – There wasn't much negotiation. I knew what others made so when they low-balled me I told them know and they instantly came up to what others were being paid.
Subcontractor Sales Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at iSqFt in August 2012.
Interview Details – I applied online at literally 2am and got a response back from HR that morning. The recruiter was courteous and let me set the time for our phone interview. The phone interview (just with recruiter) was mostly the typical softball questions, getting to know you. She was incredibly nice though and thoroughly explained the job to me prior to offering the next step. The first in-person interview was with a sales manager and another recruiter, which delved deeper into the actual day-to-day of the job. Probably the hardest of the interviews, they definitely wanted to confirm that I understood what the job entailed, and to see if I had the constitution to deal with the common difficulties of a sales position (i.e., rejection). Following the second interview, I wasn't sure how I did, so the follow-up HR call was a little weird. I spent about 10 minutes talking to the recruiter about how the interview went before she gave me any feedback on their end. She ended it with offering me a third interview, which was with the three sales managers and a recruiter. A lot of the questions from the second interview were repeated in the third, but the general impression I got was that they wanted to hire me but were trying to ensure that I was committed and could sell just myself. There was a short office tour given on the first interview, but for the most part I didn't get a good sense of the office until I started working. In general, everyone was courteous and to the point in the interview process. I didn't feel led on or disrespected, and the fact that they took the care to do two in-person interviews made me feel as though they took the placement of a person in the job seriously, and really wanted to make sure I was a good fit.

Implimentation Specialist Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)

The lady who was leaving the potions I was interviewing for decided not to leave so the position was close. It was very nice to have her in the interview to learn from someone in that position.

Very Difficult Interview
Inside Sales Interview (Negative Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at iSqFt in January 2012.
Interview Details – Two people interviewed me and they seemed unable to decide who should lead or ask the questions. The women in the interview really just took over and interrupted me as well as her co-worker. I have never had someone be so aggressive and rude during an interview. I do not think I could ever work for someone like her. I am sure she felt the same way about me. The HR recruiter said she would call me either way, but I never heard a thing. I was not impressed with the office atmosphere in general even before the disastrous interview began.
Marketing Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took 1 week - interviewed at iSqFt in April 2010.
Interview Details – Applied to company late in their search process. Had a senior friend contact a senior person who's a "partner" in the company, putting in a good word for me. Had very good phone interview from high-level HR person.Bottom line was that my credentials fit, but the company decided to move ahead with another candidate who'd interviewed earlier in the process.
