Start out in a group interview for information only, then were taken individually to be interviewed. During the info session they had some technical difficulties with their presentation but were able to deliver orally with a marker board. Overall very friendly with a lot of promise.

    Interview

    Interview did not provide in depth disclosure on commission structure. I left with an overall feeling of being sold on the position instead of a presentation on the company. Didn't discuss any current sales agents achievements or how training was structured.

    Interview

    They called me in and sat down with me for an hour, covering my background and the expectations of the position I was applying for. After determining whether it was a mutual match, they decided to call me back for a second interview to offer me the position. They reiterated the demands of the job, ensured I was comfortable with it, and then extended the offer.

    The interview was fairly quick, easy, and painless. The person conducting the interview was very respectful.
