    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing (Indianapolis, IN) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Spoke with a Hiring Manager who was super awesome and nice, and then she set up an appointment with the District Manager immediately. Then I went to some shady office in Greenwood. Thought it was like a legit office you know with a receptionist and everything... so I walked in...and nope it was the actual guys' OFFICE office that looked like nothing was in it. They let me know the next day through e-mail.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing (DeKalb, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The initial phone screen lasted 15-20 minutes. Be prepared to answer basic questions about your background and resume, after that they do most of the talking (inform about company and role). They just want to find out if you would be a good fit for their company. Advice - Be enthusiastic!

    The second interview was face to face and lasted about 20-25 minutes. A very basic interview process. Discuss compensation and other details. Advice - Relax and simply be yourself!

    The final interview is a job shadow where they have you come observe for about 2 hours. They want to know your thoughts and then they discuss any remaining questions you may have. They offered me a job right then and there. Advice - Come prepared to ask a lot of questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing.

    Interview

    If they like your resume then you will get a email stating that they would like to conduct a phone interview. The phone interview is very easy, almost like talking to a friend. The in person interview is hard- you need to be able to brag and prove that this is the job that you want.

    "Salaried Advertising Sales Position" Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in DeKalb, IL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing (DeKalb, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Company's job description claimed to offer double DeKalb, IL's average salary and $20,000 over the national average according to CityData and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, respectively. I wanted to learn more.

    I did an internet search for "questions to ask hiring managers," picked a few then sent them as a reply to the email inviting me in for an interview. I didn't know asking basic questions would upset her. The recruiter's second email was laser-focused focused on talking down to me, telling me how experienced she is and how getting hired at this company would be a "life changing opportunity" for anyone.

    Reasons for Declining

    She reminded me of this Tyra Banks reference on Family Guy:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCis1wa5LYo .
    I would never want to speak to (or work with) someone so unprofessional and unable to answer basic questions.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing (Greenwood, IN) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Very structured interview process. I was asked ten questions that are standard for their company. Make sure to bring a resume because they ask you for one when you walk in. Takes about 10-15 minutes total. Mine turned into more of a conversation than an interview near the end. They really just want to hear how much you want to sell their product. If you aren't enthusiastic about the job, you won't hear back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing.

    Interview

    I interviewed at my university and it was a very relaxed interview. The interviewer speaks about the company and the position most of the allotted time. After the interview, they set up a job shadow. This is a really good opportunity to get a feel for the position- lots travel and sales. This would be a really good fit for someone who's incentivized by money.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was really relaxed and took about an hour. I received a second interview within a week. The office was a little difficult to find, but that can be chalked up to the fact that my phone died and I had no GPS. Everything was positive and conversational. They also were very informative and answered all of my questions before I could even ask them.
