    I have been working at Signpost full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you had asked me 2 years ago when I was graduating college that I would be doing inside phone sales I would have told you that you were crazy. I was drawn to Signpost because of the product and the culture - being part of a startup was appealing to me. Little did I know that I would be where I am today. I've been promoted 3 times in a little over a year, and now hold one of the most senior sales positions in the company. Talk about upward mobility.

    The product is fantastic. I've seen it change, evolve and improve enormously over the last year, and I'm proud of that. A product should never be stagnant, especially in the tech space, and I'm confident that our team has been improving the product based on EXACTLY what our clients want and need. We truly do empower small businesses every day.

    The culture is equally as fantastic. The organization is very flat. Everyone always claims that executives have an "open door policy" but at Signpost it's actually true - there actually are no doors! You have lunch/drinks with the CEO, can ping the VP of Revenue when you need something, and direct management is extremely supportive in improving your sales skills. The training is great, as it's ongoing, and EVERYONE from management to the people next to you, is willing to help you out.

    Cons

    Things change. That's understandable though. The offices are growing, policies that were never necessary before change, sometimes career and promotion paths are altered, and sometimes communication between different departments can be difficult.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Signpost .

    Interview Details

    I sent in my resume in the evening. That next morning I get a call from the recruiter. She discusses the job with me and then asks if I wanted to come in for an interview. I come in the next week.

    At the start of my interview, I got a brief overview of the company. Then, I spent some time with current employees making calls. The employee I listened in on sounded bored, but the overall atmosphere of the office was energetic. Then, I had a one-on-one interview with some sort of manager. You usual questions, nothing unpredictable. I did feel like he kind started drifting off while I was answering some of the questions. I didn't think I was babbling on incessantly, but it kind of seemed like he was bored.

    Regardless, I was offered a second interview, which I accepted. I was told I needed to prepare a powerpoint, and that they would send me info on what to prepare later. I never got that email. Then they called the day of the interview to confirm I was coming in. I said I wasn't prepared because I never got their email with instructions. They apologized and asked if I wanted to reschedule. I declined.
