Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Blue (Illinois) in February 2016.

Interview

Quick phone interview, Then a face to face
They were very sketchy about the actual job itself and kept going back to UNLIMITED POTENTIAL and 100% Promotion from with in .
After the interview I did more research online and found out it is DOOR TO DOOR SALES 6 DAYS A WEEK 100% Commission They really need to be up front for what the position actually is.
I am an experienced B2B sales professional and when offered the job I asked if they actually read my resume and if they though someone with my qualification would sell door to door ? they hung up

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Blue (Illinois) (Schaumburg, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I knew there was something fishy going on here before I ever showed up. How many companies do you know that contract resume submission within hours of when they are sent? How about setting them up for an initial interview within 24 hour?

    As to the interview itself, it took maybe 10 min tops and almost no questions were asked about my academic background or skills. Perhaps more importantly, he gave me rhetorical gymnastics when I tried to inquire as to what the duties of the position actually are.

    After I stupidly showed back up for my '2nd Interview' I got escorted out a housing development to sell door to door to people that did not have an appointment. I called a friend to come pick me up. At no time was there any mention that this 'job' was nothing but door to door sales.

    This job is a scam.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Blue (Illinois) (Schaumburg, IL) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I walked into the office very nervous and unaware of the interview because I was informed that I would be meeting with the President of the company. When he came out and introduced himself, he was humble. When we were in the office he really wanted to get to know about me and what I was really looking for, was very interested genuinely. I was super excited by the time I walked out of the interview because he was a down to earth guy. The staff from whom I met were great, friendly and happy. Which is everything I look for in a company

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Blue (Illinois) (Schaumburg, IL) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I had a pretty short conversation with someone from HR, but she seemed nice and had good music in the background (it seemed like a cool work environment) and she set up a time for me to meet with the hiring manager. The first interview didn't take long, they said they wanted to get to know me outside of what I said on my resume (I think they wanted to see if I made a good first impression). Later that day, I was invited for a second interview for that week and I was on a job shadow. The guy who took me out was pretty cool and the opportunity was just what I was looking for.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Blue (Illinois) (Schaumburg, IL) in June 2012.

    Interview

    First of all they put out the ad on CareerBuilder that they are hiring for entry level management position and for account manager position. I applied for the account manager position since I have a lot of management experience. I got the call, went in for the first interview, it was very casual, it took maybe 15 minutes, I asked questions, I wanted to know more details about the position but I really didn't get any answer, what the interviewer said that is not sales, we don't have to sell anything. He also mentioned that they work with AT&T... Later that evening I got the call if I want to go in next day to shadow one of their leaders to know what this is all about. Basically what we did we went door to door to let people know about U-Verse in that area. In the end when it was clear for me that is not what I'm looking for and I got a comment like "IT IS HARD WORK, NOT EVERYBODY CAN DO IT!" Really??? I'm a hard worker, I don't care what the job is if I have to do it I will do it, but I was just not interested in something like go door to door and make people sign up for AT&T, they call it "to get application". I have a lot management, HR experience, I have skills what I really want to use to build my career. That was very unprofessional!!!!!!!!....and of course the guy was not able to sign up even 1 person after working on it for almost 7 hours. Also if you post a job and if you get hired, you are hired and paid for that position even if you have to start to learn everything from scratch, nothing is wrong with that but don't post the position with requirements and responsibilities because that's not what you will be doing. Everybody starts from going door to door you don't get paid as a manager, you barely get paid any money, it is based on applications how many you get and you might have to wait 1-2 yrs to make some money...of course, if you get there. I do not recommend this to anyone especially if you have some proven skills from your past work experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Blue (Illinois) (Chicago, IL) in January 2012.

    Interview

    The first interview was very simple. You arrive prior to the interview and fill out a application in the office with several other people interviewing. During this the HR manager is working at her desk as the receptionist. Very outgoing and friendly. I thought she was observing us to see if we were outgoing. The interview was very basic questions about the resume. They call you back that evening after they discuss all the candidates.

    The second interview is a lot more in-depth. They take you to lunch and go over the compensation and positions of the office and what the different levels require. It is very easy going and laid back.

    Reasons for Declining

    I personally did not like the aspect of Door-to-door selling. Even though they move you up quickly into a leadership then managers role, I would not want to be managing people doing something that I wouldn't even want to do. I feel like door-2-door selling is fading out and becoming less effective. I also didn't like the hours of 11:30am to 8:30 pm Monday through Saturday. It just wasn't what I was looking for coming out of college with an extensive degree in business.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Blue (Illinois) (Schaumburg, IL) in August 2011.

    Interview

    This company doesn't tell you anything about the exact responsibilities of your position. They give you a chance to talk for about 15 minutes and then end up calling you back the same day to set up a second interview. The second interview is absolutely ridiculous; do not waste your time unless you feel like walking around door to door with a sales person. They fail to explain this is a door to door type job which only compensates you when you sell something. I unfortunately tried to be professional and stuck it out the whole day; the sales person told me on average they sell 2 - 3 U-verse packages a day, funny how the day I was there they didnt sell anything and constantly got the door slammed in their face.

    I decided to decline the offer because it was a door to door sales job that didn't compensate you at all unless you end up selling an AT&T U-verse package. It was a complete waste of time.

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Blue (Illinois) (Schaumburg, IL) in November 2010.

    Interview

    I was contacted by Blue's Human Resource Department, and I was interested in scheduling an interview with them. I thought the first round interview was brief and it sparked enough interest for me to come for a second round interview. The second interview was cool, I felt comfortable and I saw opportunity.
