    I worked at The Campus Special as an intern (less than a year)


    You learn a TON about yourself. If you are motivated you can have great success. Campus Special opens a lot of opportunities and great resume building aspects. RSMs are awesome.


    Its a sales job, so expect to get frustrated. All part of the learning experience and you'll be happy you did it.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at The Campus Special.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was quick. I submitted my resume and got a call to do a phone interview with one manager. They just ask you why you want to be an account executive and what your strengths/weaknesses are. After that, you have to do a video interview when they ask you basic behavioral questions. If you pass that section, you get to do another phone interview with a different manager and if they like you, they'll offer the position.

    Interview Questions
    • They don't ask difficult questions, but they do want to hear that you have drive and can handle rejection so always say that.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The job was very hard. You work long days and just going in and out of businesses to find owners and try to sell them things. You only get 10% commission too, which I think it really low.
    Accepted Offer
