    Entry Level Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phila, PA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Blue Square Concepts (Phila, PA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was weird. They had me wait 20 minutes after my scheduled meeting time. I never met the guy who reached out to me after I applied and who called to confirm my interview appointment the morning of.
    When I met the woman she talked very fast, said huge words that did not make sense. Yet I never got the chance to have her elaborate on what she was talking about.. Finally, I told her I was looking for a marketing position yet the position she was describing sounded like a sales job. She told me that for 4-6 months I would do door-to-door/face-to-face sales with clients and after is when they would assess my skills to see if I qualified for a "managerial" position.

    The job post said nothing about being a sales representative. I found this company to be misleading and I had weird feelings as soon as I got into their office- which by the way is shared with other offices and could use a make-over. Right off the bat my trust for them was on edge and who wants to start off like that?

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Blue Square Concepts (Philadelphia, PA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Received phone call from HR. When I heard the address I realized they were the 3rd company in the same suite in the same building to contact me (shady). I asked what compensation was and was told they would only discuss in an interview. I requested a phone interview and was told they didn't hold interviews over the phone. These guys are SHADY! I would watch out ......

    Interview

    Most of the time they just talked about themselves and asked few unnecessary questions. They don't have much interest to the employees, and they just want to persuade newcomers to sell stuff for them,

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Blue Square Concepts (Houston, TX) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Applied for the job simply because I am currently a student trying to find a job once I graduate and heard back from them almost immediately which did not sit well with me. I told them I would be able to meet on a Friday at a certain time and then received another email saying they wanted to do an interview at a later time which did not sit well with me either. I declined to go further with the interview process after reading other responses saying it was a scam.

    Interview

    Pyramid scheme. Extremely unprofessional. Sent an email with multiple typos and errors. Try asking them any normal question about base pay or your job and they will steer clear of an answer. Second interview you do door to door sales in Philly with one of the employees. For free mind you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Blue Square Concepts (Philadelphia, PA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The first interview was very short (around ten minutes). It was a one-to-one interview. It felt more like a screening interview. Questions were very easy and straight forward. You don't have to prepare much. If you want the job, just look nice, present yourself well and be sociable.

    The second interview is a door-to-door sales trip.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Blue Square Concepts (Philadelphia, PA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Day 1: Show up for first round interview, just like anywhere else. The purpose of this interview is to explain what you will be doing if you are hired and an excellent understanding of how the company works,
    Day 2 (or whenever you schedule your next interview): Show up at the same time other trainees or associates come to work and prepare to hit the field with a consultant. Here, you will learn exactly what you will be expected to do upon hiring. Learn what you can during this interview, as it is truly a unique experience and an excellent chance to see how things are done correctly. About half way through the normal work day, you will be taken back to the office, where the senior management reviews feedback from the consultant while in the field. You may or may not be offered the position at this point.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Blue Square Concepts (Houston, TX) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, interviewed in person. Reading reviews ahead of time, I was suspicious that the job description in the listing didn't reflect the actual position they were hiring for, and this was confirmed seconds into the interview. The interview didn't come out and say it, but most of the questions were along the lines of "how do you feel about being told no by a potential client?", which made it very clear this was, in fact, a sales position.
