    I have been working at International Sports Management full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Senior Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a day - interviewed at International Sports Management in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I did a face to face interview that lasted no more than twenty minutes. All the questions were basic and simple like why do you want to work in sales, or have you ever worked for commission? They make it seem like this position could be so lucrative that within one year, you will be making $20k to $30k+ per month. This is hogwash and after being there a year, NO ONE does this. A monkey could get this job or anyone with an IQ over 4.

    Interview Questions
    • What would you buy if you made over $200000 in the next twelve months?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    They never tell you exactly what you're going to be paid because they know after taxes, you are making minimum wage but they expect you to come to work dressed as if you will be engaging the client face to face (full suit and tie). There is no negotiation phase. They offer the job, you accept/decline.
