    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Connect America in August 2017.

    Interview

    The entire process set off red flags. To start with, I NEVER APPLIED. They contacted me out of the blue via text and asked me for an immediate interview over IM. The interview as short and stilted because they didn't message me back regularly before they asked me to be available for an additional interview the next morning without providing any details. Then, instead of an interview I was immediately extended an offer with pay FAR BELOW what was advertised and with a very different description. I could not run for the hills fast enough.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Connect America in June 2017.

    Interview

    I did not apply for this job. I was contacted through text and email by the HR. I was interviewed via Google Hangouts. It was a very simple process.

    The pay rate was low but I needed to job so I took it. I was given a supervisor to coordinate with through Hangouts and was sent a cashier's check to buy the equipment from the accounting department. The check bounced, ultimately closing my account with my bank. Now, I've opened a case with my bank to further look into the issue after explaining the situation. Despite that, every time I tried to ask to speak to someone higher up, I was given excuse after excuse and belittled for my frustrations.

    Aside from that, they were also trying to convince me to pay for things out of pocket and send money different places.

    I tried to email HR and I I never received a reply. I'm only contacted by HR via text to report to my Supervisor. Clearly something is going very wrong and, if this situation isn't looked into, whatever it may be, it will be detrimental for this company in the long run.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Connect America (Bala Cynwyd, PA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    It's a two part process between HR and the Sales Manager. HR has you fill out an additional application and then asks questions based on the application. Also about your skills in general. The Sales Manager tells you what the job duties are and answers questions about the position. The entire process lasted a few hours but that's because there were multiple interviews that day.

It was the biggest waste of my time and the most unprofessional interview I have ever been part of.

    Interview

    You go thru training school, where you learn the products and the rebuttals regarding the ability to sell the clients, Combination selling is best for the client - base unit or a GPS - my personal sale as an annual

    Interview Questions

    • why can't I pay monthy. You need to keep in mind, that the company is outlaying over $400 in equipment and is paying for shipping only if paid on an annual basis, if paid other than annual, the customer is responsible for the shipping- so if you can't talk the client into a quarterly or semi-annual or annual the company is on the risk for losing the initial $400 worth of equipment and the agent will be given the charge back   1 Answer
