The WorldWide Marketing Management Training Program is an opportunity to learn about all aspects of the business from inside a growing company. The theory is that nothing can better prepare you for leading in the company than gaining significant, substantial experience with everything a company does, under the mentorship of experienced veterans.
The management training program should typically take 6 to 18 months to complete depending on the candidate's capabilities, experience, student mentality, and work ethic. Due to our entrepreneurial philosophy, there is no set time frame. Your own initiative and capabilities, coupled with your ability to think on your feet and market effectively, will dictate how fast you advance.
Our goal for 2014 is to open an additional 10 offices so that we can accommodate our client's growing needs and provide more opportunity for our people. The forecast by 2015 is to have opened 40 offices across North America and to have expanded into several European markets.

Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
1 person found this helpfulApplication Details
I applied through other source. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Worldwide Marketing.Interview Details
I was initially contacted by this group from my resume which I posted online. I was pleasantly surprised when companies were calling me even when I did not have even an iota of experience regarding sales or marketing. Worldwide Marketing called first and set up an interview, so I gladly agreed. They didn't initially state what the position was or what it entailed. I ended up in the office where three people were sitting waiting for an interview. Eventually I managed to talk to the owner of the branch for an interview The owner seemed like a nice person and I casually shared my interests and why I felt confident in working for any company. The owner said that her company would call me back within a few hours to set up an appointment for another interview if they liked what they saw. They called me back, congratulated me for getting to the next interview and set up the next interview the day after.
I came back the next day and again there were three people waiting for the next stage of the interview (not the same 3 people, mind you). During the waiting process I could hear the secretary of this office and the office just outside both calling people left and right for interviews; this helped break the illusion of "selectivity" that they seemed to be selling to me. The secretary told me that I would be interviewed after the office's meeting took place. I could hear the meeting from the waiting lounge, it consisted of cheering, stomping and chanting in unison in a sort of authoritarian-esque fashion. The secretary then told us of the "relaxed" nature of the company.
Eventually they sent some of their representatives (they called them "leaders", which seems quite telling to me) out to take us to lunch. We conversed and had lunch, there wasn't much substance to the lunch other than the fact that they went over what the job was (without mentioning the word commission once, despite the position being 100% commission and door to door salesmanship) and talked about the prospects of upward mobility. It was more exciting to talk to the representative about our personal lives than it was to talk about anything related to the company. They shared and discussed notes and common lingo and said there was going to be a test when we got back to the office. We got back to the office and I took the test (the "leaders" reviewed the answers with me prior to taking the test so it wasn't remotely difficult). Then they set me up with an interview with the secretary, which was a complete breeze and it seemed like it was simply a formality to understand at what time you would be available to take the job. The secretary then told me he would call me back and choose to hire me or not because they were quite a "selective" company.
When I walked back to the bus stop to head home a man started having light conversation with me regarding how the cross-walks would repeat "wait" every second and that it would be slightly more optimal to have the period between the warnings be, say, every three seconds or more. Regardless, we eventually talked about all sorts of things and he asked me if I worked in the office complex around the bus stop. I of course said that I didn't work there and instead got and interview in the location, he said the same thing. I asked him where he got interviewed, and he said he got interviewed by a marketing firm in the exact same building (that company being Athena) for the exact same job (we sold the same merchandise) with the exact same strategy (our notes were completely identical) and the same stated salary ranges (despite both our jobs being commissions and those numbers are far from guaranteed).
I went back home and eventually got the call that I received the job, I declined. Ironically enough, about an hour after the call someone came to my home to sell my roommate the merchandise I would have been selling if I took the job. I jumped into the sale and said why I didn't want the product and why it wasn't the product for us and the solicitors left.Interview Questions
Reasons for Declining
- What was your least favorite part of the interview? View Answer
They were dodging the word "commission" despite this being a 100% commission job.
Several other companies were hiring for the exact same thing at the time and they had the exact same strategies (the notes were even the same).
They were building this sense of a devoted community around their office and I'm just far too cynical for that.
They said they were being selective a few too many times for me to not be suspicious about their use of the word.Declined OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
