    Master Trtainer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Dale Carnegie (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Somewhat convoluted. What is WOW? Dale Carnegie has a long history of what it takes to be successful. Questions and demonstration of adult learning competencies and business relevance of applicant skills was poorly communicated, highly judgmental, and useless in terms of how to build the right skills and attitudes. Poor coordination between corporate goals and franchise operations. Recipe for bad execution and motivation. Quite the opposite of Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends and Influence People tome.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Get clear objectives of corporate and franchise goals. Ask for clarification about clear expectations and your commensurate rewards. Don't take BS answers, Get them to be specific and tell you how to measure success. Ask them how they will help you and the metrics which you can use,

    People were nice , liked to talk and talk and talk. Wasn't sure if they were trying to sell me something or hire me for sales. Seems like a good company if you can wait the decades to be certified to sell and facilitate.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dale Carnegie (San Antonio, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Very thorough and multiple people to get to know. Terrible environment to interview prospective candidates. Image was questionable - office is behind a strip club in an unsafe area of town. If they want top people, they need to improve their image.

    Master Trainer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dale Carnegie (Denver, CO) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I applied, and later that week was contacted for a lengthy initial screening. We discussed my past successes, areas of improvement, interests and passions, work experience, salary and expectations. When I was advanced for an in-person interview there was a horrible bait and switch where the expected salary, territory, training time, etc. had all changed for the worse. I invested a long time in that first screening, time to drive down to the interview and within 20 minutes was put on the defensive as if it were my fault that they were changing the details. I not only would never consider them again - I would warn others away.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dale Carnegie (Jacksonville, FL) in June 2012.

    Interview

    -I initiated the interview process when I determined that the organization had recently lost its key salesperson and was in need of a replacement.
    -Secured appointment for informal interview to solicit additional details. Company is currently composed of owner/lead trainer and administrative assistant and 2 or more instructors that rotate as needed.
    -The interview process seems straightforward, with an initial interview during which the owner is very candid about the long sales cycle and the straight commission structure. It's up to the keen eye and imagination of the salesperson to see beyond that to the goldmine that exists in this opportunity for the right person. The organization offers the right person world-class training and unparalleled resources and puts no limits on your territory as far as I could tell. The people who have walked through the doors of the Dale Carnegie Organization would take your breath away. To stand shoulder to shoulder amongst those mena and women is something, I mean truly something!
    -Its hard to imagine the interview process going beyond two steps. The owner is very direct and to the point and has a keen sense about people. If I could have reached a mutual understanding in the first meeting, I could see us wrapping things up in one more interview.

    Business Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Dale Carnegie (Denver, CO) in October 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring process was professional and detailed. First was a detailed 40 minute phone screening and initial interview. The second interview was in person with one of the managing partners and took approximatley 1 hour 30 minutes. It was conversational and relaxed. As with any interview do be prepared:
    1) Know the copmpany
    2) Know as much as the person you are interviewing with
    3) Know thy self and how you fit in and why you want to work there

    The third interview was with both managing partners and the questions were more about how I would fit in. Plus a few very traditional questions like Tell me about yourself, tell me about your past responsibilties, etc.

    After the third interview they had me come in to make two hours worth of cold calls, this was to see if I would enjoy it and for them to assess my skill level. While this may seem unecessary it was very helpful, as you not only get to se what the office is like but how your potential boss interacts with you.

    The people I interviewed with and the office was professional and organized. They were timley and prepared. It was not the best fit for me but I would recommend working there.
