    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BAO (Norwood, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Made contact with the company through a job fair and then was later contacted by a recruiter to set up an interview. Had to take assessments on Word, Excel, and Outlook. Short interview, maybe only a half hour. Hard to read what the interviewer was thinking. No clear position title and was only told in the interview that it was an hourly position. Be sure to bring something to take notes. Did not get a job offer, however the recruiter was very helpful in the process.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chelmsford, MA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BAO (Chelmsford, MA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    First quick phone interview. Under 30 mins. Followed by an in person interview. Meet with one manager, then another. They asked if I would like to shadow an employee before offering me the position. Red Flag. I was told you would be paid for setting appointments for outside sales companies. At the interview, they told me I would only be paid for the appointments the outside sales companies "sit down at." Many sales companies call this a "show ratio." They do not pay for each appointment. They offer 33k base for the year with a per appointment commission. They pay for shows only. In addition, you are given a "campaign" to call and set appointments. Management decides who gets which client or "campaign." If you are straight out of college this is a great cut throat sales job to start out at. Anyone over 30 beware.
