I applied online. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Lewis Group of Companies in May 2014.Interview Details
The interview process went very smoothly for me! First of all, some big tips are to go on to the blog that David Draper runs. He has all kinds of tips for the interviews, how to get plugged in to LinkedIn, how to polish your resume, etc... Read all of it and DO WHAT HE SAYS! The man knows.
I turned in an application and resume online, was contacted by a hiring manager to come to a job fair. I interviewed with that hiring manager and quickly met a VP. I was asked to come to corporate the next week to take some assessments and go through some more interviews. So the next week I took some assessment tests that were fairly easy (one was a personality and then a vocab/math/critical thinking skills test), and then later that day I had an interview with someone else from corporate, and a regional manager. Then I was called the next day to schedule a final interview with the VP, which happened two days later. I've heard of other people having one additional personality test, and two additional interviews with VPs, it's probably just up to their discretion on how quickly each individual goes through, what the needs of the company are at the time, which corporate executives are available, etc.
The entire way, everyone was super friendly and the interviews weren't too terribly hard. It seems like they're mostly looking for people with energy, great personality, good communication skills and mostly people that like people! If you genuinely like people, have good energy, and have some kind of background in sales, then you're likely to move through the interview process fairly quickly.
It seems like a lot of interviewing and a long process, and at one point I thought that maybe I didn't do well enough to keep going through. But I came to the conclusion that even if I didn't keep moving forward, it was a great experience and awesome practice, and any interview I would have after that would be a breeze! But then I heard back that they wanted to schedule a final interview, I stressed about it, and it ended up being pretty simple with me being myself and being friendly, dressing professionally and keeping the needs of the company in mind.Interview Questions
Negotiation DetailsI didn't negotiate pay because I don't have a huge background in sales, so I was just thankful for the position, plus it's such an awesome company! Careful with requesting time off right away. I had a few dates that I needed off, and I had to cut back on those to just the necessities, because they want you to be "all in" right away, which is totally understandable. They were willing to work with me on my most important ones though!Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
