    Lead Generator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chattanooga, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at DirectBuy (Chattanooga, TN) in April 2009.

    Interview

    The first interview was a brief phone interview and a set up for a second interview. When I went to the second interview there were a couple other people there too. They explained to the group about the company, what the position was and what we'd be doing, the pay and hours, etc. After that they interviewed us individually. A day or two later I was offered the job and began training with two other girls. The three of us trained for a few days and then each of us was pulled to aside individually by the manager. I was told that there were only two positions and I had got one. After being there a couple of years i noticed they did that every group they hired. They hire more than they need and weed out those not right for job.

    Lead Generator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at DirectBuy (Orlando, FL) in February 2011.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of sitting with a group of other applicants and reading the script for the outbound cold calls. You had to be comfortable reading the script and role-playing with one of the interviewers (there were 2) through the call right there in the room in front of everyone else. It seemed as though anyone that could read clearly and stay coherent through the script was hired.

    Membership Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Corona, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at DirectBuy (Corona, CA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewees have to see a sales presentation about Direct Buy which is the same that prospective clients get. After sales pitch each candidate is placed at a table individually for further interviewee questioning. Management decides which 2 interviewees to hire when they only have 1 official opening. Within the 90 day hire period whoever sells the most gets the job. However the 2 interviewees are unaware about what management is doing and do not know that they are competing for one open position.
