    Pros

    IQPC gives employees with potential the room to tackle new challenges. This isn't the kind of place where you necessarily have to have done all the facets of the job before in order to be considered. If you're smart and talented, but lack experience, they will give you the opportunity and training to learn new skills. That is what led me here, and I haven't been disappointed. This is a company that values initiative, hard work, moxie, and passion. If you are willing to help yourself, they will help you right back. It's a great place for people to learn the language of business, hone their writing and speaking skills, and really get to know certain industries.

    Cons

    There are a lot of high achieving people here, and they have little tolerance for laziness and under-performance. With the ability to gain a lot (experience, money, promotional opportunities), IQPC expects a lot in return. It's not necessarily a con - it's just a fact that some people may not feel suits them, and that's OK. Not every job or every company is for every personality type. But there are plenty of employees here who have stayed a long time and are very happy here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chris Ritchie (head of Sponsorship Sales) is charismatic, energetic, supportive, and a great manager. Keep doing what you do to motivate and train your team! Paul Rocco (head of Delegate Sales) is focused, egalitarian, smart, and similarly motivational. Kate Bentley (Managing Director) is forward thinking, business-savvy, incredibly bright, and demonstrates constant willingness to improve the business through conventional and unconventional strategies. There's still some room for making things better, but this team has what it takes to get there.

    Sponsorship Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tampa, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Tampa, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at IQPC in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I found IQPC at a job fair. I passed the first phone interview and was asked in for a second interview. The phone interview was stressful and I thought the interviewer said a few things that were less than professional. The second interview required a lot of preparation. I had zero sales/business experience so maybe others would have to prepare less. It requires reading 8 chapters of a book and preparing a mock presentation. The interview was long. It lasted about 2-2.5 hours. It was structured: Preliminary questions about resume/past work experience, questions about the book you read, more personal questions, mock presentation questions, more personal questions, I asked questions, and finally they gave me feedback. It went really well. They offered me the job on the spot. They were very kind and gave me nice compliments. I felt great after the brain-melting interview. I actually enjoyed the challenging interview process.

    Reasons for Declining

    I almost accepted. I was on my way to fax the agreement when I got a call from a more desirable company. I read a lot of reviews on this website, and I read and re-read the offer agreement that they sent me. I don't want to work in a very stressful environment with low employee satisfaction and the fear of getting fired looming over my head everyday. Corporate Hell just isn't for me. I hope all of the reviews aren't true and there are some happy people that love their job at IQPC. I just didn't want to find out for myself.
