    I have been working at The Salem Group full-time (less than an year)


    The leadership team, from the CEO down, is made up of exemplary people who make an investment in every person hired onto Salem. Competitive pay and benefits? Sure... but that's a drop in the bucket compared to all the other reasons why I love working here. The Salem Group has fostered a true team environment where creative ideas and morale flourish.


    The clock. Most days it doesn't seem possible that 5:00 can arrive so quickly.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at The Salem Group in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Salem found my resume on CareerBuilder and contacted me for a phone interview first. After the phone interview I had a single interview in the corporate office where I met with everyone (my boss, who I would be working with, and one of the owners). Everyone was easy to talk to and relaxed. It more just felt like meeting new people rather then an interview. I had another offer on the table so I let Salem know that I needed an answer quickly as too if I was going to be taking next steps. I heard back from them within the HOUR!

    Interview Questions
    • I am really not sure. I can't remember being stumped by anything I was asked. Like I said before, it was more just meeting everyone.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The negotiation was easy because I really wanted the job! They made the offer within the salary range that I had requested so it was an easy 'YES!"
    Accepted Offer
