    Administrative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Apex Outsourcing (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    Definitely was a very great experience where I had an interview directly with the president of the company to get a glimpse into the mentality of a successful entrepreneur. The interview was with a group of motivated college students. The president would ask questions that would challenge you and also show what kind of employee you would be. In addition, for any college students striving to be a successful entrepreneur, the president would definitely be someone you should meet and listen to his story of failure prior to achieving massive success.

    Intern Interview

    Interview

    2 "rounds" of interview
    basically you sit at a round table and listening to the "President"'s life story. It was quite touching, not really, and how he turned it into an exploitation of employee benefits. You really are not saying much as you sit in a group and await your "2nd interview" where you go in and just listen to him more. Boom. Hired.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Apex Outsourcing (Irvine, CA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    There will be two group interviews, one that gives background information on Darren and one that focuses on insurance. The interviewing process is simple, where Darren would ask questions and let every applicant answer.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing out of ordinary, very basic interviewing questions.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    The interview feels highly scripted, Darren will continuously exaggerate how good his "system" is. When in reality it is a simple script that people read when they cold call. The job also offers zero benefits and you have to cover all licensing fees on your own. In reality, this job is looking for recent grads to act as free labor.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Apex Outsourcing (Irvine, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    The thing with this company is that they don't tell you anything about what the actusl job entails. They promise you wealth beyond your dreams and how easy it is to get it if you just work hard enough. Once youre all excited and he has you hooked they take you to a computer room where you have to get licensed to sell insurance.keep in mind he mentions nothing about how you actually have to pay to work here. So be prepared to spend a little under $400 dollars just to start. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

    Executive Administrator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Apex Outsourcing (Irvine, CA) in September 2010.

    Interview

    Apex was the 1st company that had a group interview environment. I have experienced 'panel interviews' with several decision makers in the room at once, but a group interview is entirely different.

    Initially, I found it to be a little intimidating, While being questioned openly it became very apparent who was (and was not) prepared. Those that are confident in their skill levels and success in their careers need not fear.

    Interview Questions

    • Due to my experience and skill level, the questions asked during the interview were not difficult for me to address.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The offer made to me was fair and open to negotiation by either party in the future.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Apex Outsourcing (Irvine, CA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    While waiting in the lobby to be called in I noticed that the background music wasn't the conventional sound you'd expect of just about any business office. It was more current and edgy and that speaks of the employees there as well. That was a good sign for me being straight out of college. I was shown a video clip to kick off the interview. Two men then walked into the room to have a chat with me. And that's exactly what it felt like. It was more a getting to know each other than a drilling experience. Darren Sugiyama - the President - then walks in during the tail part of the interview to have a brief session. They will e-mail you with a set of questions you have to answer if you make it through to the second round. And if they like your answers you make it to another face-to-face interview for your third screening process.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Apex Outsourcing (Irvine, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Interview process was in a room with 4 other people interviewing for the same position. They showed us a video about how great their company was and how much money we would be making (kept saying "you're gonna drive the car of your dreams"). Then they just asked us about our background and then proceeded with answering questions. They then send you an email questionnaire to fill out and then send back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Apex Outsourcing (Irvine, CA) in February 2009.

    Interview

    The first interview was an interesting format. I met with the President of the company, along with a few other candidates. Unlike most interviews, the President himself conducted the interview, as opposed to me being pawned off on some recruiter. This showed me that management is very hands on. As I found out, the President, Darren Sugiyama, was also the founder of the firm This gave me insight as to the philosophy of the organization, from the founder himself.

    The second interview was one-on-one, directly with Mr. Sugiyama. It was really refreshing to be able to sit down with such a successful person because he was actually very approachable. Most people at this level aren't willing to spend any significant amount of time with an interviewee. He asked me what my main goals were regarding my career, but more importantly, he was willing to answer any question I had. Everything was so direct and straight forward. Other interviews I've been on were all the same, boring format. My interview with Mr. Sugiyama was actually quite inspiring.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the most important thing you hope to gain from your first two years of your career?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I would advise interview candidates to do your homework and learn as much about Mr. Sugiyama as possible prior to the interview. If you go to www.DarrenSugiyama.com, there are a bunch of videos about him and what he does. You want to go into your interview knowing his background, because most likely, you'll be interviewing with him. It's important to be able to have a conversation with him about his business ventures.
