I have been working at International Sports Management full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
As a part of the Operations Department, I really enjoy working at ISM. The job definitely has its challenges from finding the best sites to host hospitality, planning in different cities each year, and a lot of vendor sourcing and negotiation.
My interaction with clients is a positive, as communication in the months leading up to an event is just as important as representing them during the event itself. While our sales staff have a relationship with the CEO/President/Vice President/etc at a certain company, many times our client’s support staff (administrative assistants, marketing managers, event planners) will contact us directly to work out any additional services (hotels, tee times in the area, ground transportation, etc).
I enjoy the interaction that we have with our sales teams in all of our offices. From the first day of training (whether in person or on a conference call), to monthly event updates with sales teams, to working with sales managers while they are at events with our clients, the ability to have everyone updated and on the same page helps them be able to paint the picture of our events to a potential client.Cons
I would like to participate in more international events since our event portfolio is 80% domestic.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied online. The process took 5 days – interviewed at International Sports Management.Interview Details
Submitted resume through Monster.com, 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.
