    Summer Sales Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AroundCampus (Raleigh, NC) in February 2009.

    Interview

    I was approached by a representative at a career fair at my university. They asked me on the spot to schedule an interview and within a week we met to have a one on one interview. Advice to others: this company/position is decievingly laid back. I expected an informal, get to know you kind of interview because of the nature of the position and the personality of the recruiters. The recruiters/managers were very nice but the interview was intense so be prepared! After this they conduct a written interview via email which is more low pressure and easier to swallow.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me one interesting fact not work related about yourself and explain   Answer Question
    • Tell me about a time when you set a goal and did not reach it, how did you handle/overcome that?   Answer Question
    • What would your friends compliment you on?   1 Answer
    • What would your friends be likely to criticize you about?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The position was commission based and in a down economy it is not good to be selling less than stellar advertisements to businesses that are barely staying afloat.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wilmington, NC
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AroundCampus (Wilmington, NC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed on-campus the day after meeting representatives at a career fair. Felt like a very professional interview unlike other laid-back interviews I have experienced recently. Interviewers took notes the entire time but were very attentive. Mainly asked standard interview questions but threw in a couple curve balls. This is an interview you want to be prepared for.
