    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Design Group Staffing in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    Met practice manager, followed by number of other recruiters from the team. Had a short interview with CEO. There was HR / behavioural Test. And after reference checks, I was offered the role.

    Negotiation Details
    Salary is Draw against commissions. They don't negotiate commision structure. There is some flexibility to negotiate on draw but since its a recoverable draw, higher draw will put more pressure on you to perform. Its better to take minimum required draw, surpass that and earn commissions.
    Accepted Offer
