    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing.

    Interview

    They sell you on the job more then anything. I was asked a question and then halfway through my reply I would get cut off. They were not very honest when describing benefits and chose to leave major points out. It wasn't really an interview as more of a revolving door trying to sell you on the job

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing.

    Interview

    The face to face interview was great but the ride along was awful. Drive an hour to meet the rep, spent the day talking with them. Based on that experience I turned the job down.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were hypothetical, did not focus on my actual experience.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing in May 2014.

    Interview

    Resume was found via Monster. Had a phone interview, followed by a Face to Face Interview. You then go on a "ride a long" with a current rep to experience a "day in the life" of an Account Manager. Final Decision made shortly thereafter.

    Interview Questions

    • They just expect you to sell yourself. Share your accomplishments, and explain why you are a good fit for the position. You also have to memorize a 5 paragraph script..which was challenging!   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing (Eau Claire, WI) in April 2014.

    Interview

    1 interview with recruiter on phone
    1 interview in person with district manager
    1 script test oral exam
    1 ride-along day in sales field with assistant district manager (same-day job offer and acceptance)
    1 week EXTREMELY high quality & rigorous training at Dekalb, IL corporate headquarters
    Placement into first canvass town

    Interview Questions

    • The interview ended up being just an organic conversation between me and the district manager. Very few pointed questions were asked of me. Instead, the DM just guided our discussion in a few directions to feel out my conversational style and communication abilities.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Base salary is firm at $25000, which was scary, but my first commission check was $1000 and my first bonus check was $1200. My checks got bigger from there. I expect to make at least $50,000 this year.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing (Hoffman Estates, IL) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Brief phone interview, followed by an in person interview. Everyone I dealt with in the company was very nice and professional. Once you've gone through the interview, they invite you on a "ride-along" with a current rep. ASK QUESTIONS! You need to know what you're getting yourself into. After the ride along you'll have a phone call with the hiring manager, just to make sure it's a good fit. After that, they'll send you an offer, but it is only if you memorize the sales script. Take the script seriously, if you don't know it backwards and forwards going into training, then you will surely fall behind.

    Interview Questions

    • You will be told "no" about 39 times every day, IF you can get in front of the business owner, can you handle that?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They're not going to pay you more than $25,000 a year. No negotiation possible.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing.

    Interview

    -> Phone interview- just describes the company and your experiences and if it sounds interesting to you. Super easy
    -> In person interview- again, they describe the company's history and briefly describe the product. Small questions about your life goals, and previous experiences. Not a whole lot of time for asking the employer any questions.
    -> Observation day- you ride along with another employee. As long as you are friendly and ask questions along the way you should have no problems passing that "test".
    -> Script test- one page long word for word script you have to memorize before going down for training. It tests people's dedication because it takes HOURS and HOURS to memorize.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions were really asked. Very simple just asking you about your experience, how you've dealt with people, and your goals. They LOVE goal oriented people.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. Everyone in the sales field receives the same base salary. If you want to make more money than the base salary that everyone gets, you need to sell more stuff for them.
