I applied online – interviewed at Auction Systems.Interview Details
The interview started with the "VP of Sales" in their conference room. Normal questions from him regarding my background, sales experience, etc. He likes to think of himself as a hard business guy, so he is pretty direct. Normal interview.
Second interview was with the owner. Very professional, direct, and straight forward. When I left the first interview, I felt pretty confident. When I left the second, I had no idea if I did well or not. Turns out, she loved me, but I had no idea.
Here's the interesting part of the second interview; the owner brings her dog. He is an enormous guy - kind of intimidating, and I'm a guy with dogs, horses, etc. If he for some reason doesn't like you, or you show fear, you will not be hired, period. No joke. I could say more, but I choose not to.
Finally, I followed up frequently with the VP. He likes that. He called me to a bar for the final interview and said it was between me, and one other guy - he was having a hard time deciding. I obviously sold myself to him. I got the job.
Mix in a normal, professional interview with a dog interview, and there you have it!Interview Questions
Negotiation DetailsIf you have read the interview part, and because of my personal situation, there wasn't a lot of negotiating. The salary was waaaaay low, but I had no choice. Additionally, they were going to drop my salary by 40% after 6 months. At that time, I had proved my value to the company, so it wasn't cut. I left fairly soon afterwards.Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
- The dog part was kind of strange. I expected it, because they clearly state they are dog friendly when you google them. Answer Question
