    I have been working at International Sports Management full-time (more than an year)


    The management team is always there to help/coach you through a call and ultimately close a sale. The daily motivation, training and guidance is a perfect place to sharpen your craft of sales. The environment is sports, hard-working, dedicated, energetic and most of all a lively work atmosphere.


    There is a learning curve and it's not for everyone. But if you stick with it and are willing to learn you will grow as a success in sales and as a person. No sugar coating here....In any sales position/job there is no silver spoon. The success you get out of the position is directly correlated to the effort you put in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little more open to newer staff/veterans ideas that could potentially help the company in the long run (Suggestion box). Also, take more pics and even video of our hospitality sites, so that we can see how the events are run and it gives the newer employees a clearer picture of how truly awesome our events are.

    Account Executive Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at International Sports Management.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume through, one of the Sales Managers called to discuss the position. Initial phone call lasted about 15-20 minutes, going through brief background of the company, but more importantly, they wanted to discuss my background and what I was looking for. They made no bones about it, letting me know this is a sales position, and that I should be looking for that. They scheduled me for a 1st interview in the office, which was 2 days later. I met with that same Sales Manager, he went through the company, the position (150+ calls each day, moderate research on the side, full benefits, base salary that is not a draw, and uncapped commissions), what they were looking for in terms of this position (both short and long-term) and then had a discussion about my background and skills. Once completed, over the next 48-72 hours (I don't remember exactly) they proceeded to check in with some of my references and a 2nd interview (in-person) was set with the VP. The entire process was very open, which makes sense since they want to be as transparent as possible about the position and the opportunity.

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't have a lot of leadership experience leading up to my interview, so describing a situation in which I had to overcome some sort of diversity or problem in a short amount of time, while staying determined and leading a group to do the same was more personal for me than professional.   Answer Question
