    Senior Business Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Global Resources in March 2017.

    Interview

    Email your resume, you will rec an email for a follow and initial phone screen in few days, followed by a Telephonic interview and if you are accepted you would be Offered to take a 1 week consulting course what they call "A mini-MBA" (on your own time not paid)

    Company's Directors, Executives, Recruiter would first brag about themselves for the no of years they have been there and how much they like it to get you buy into their talk with the same old marketing tactics to create a well-esteemed environment so the applicant feels it's such a well versed and organized company taking care of its employees totally manipulated.

    A Glimpse of what they offer:
    Compensation: Its 100% commissions only and what they call a W2.
    for the first 5 "Go Ahead" you will be paid $2820 for 200 hours you work which is equivalent to 5 weeks so your pay comes to $14/- an hour which is a salary of 28K a year. An intern working in school makes more than this.
    OK they mention after 5 "Go Ahead" with no mention of time after how many months etc you would make the following: $5142.50 for 200 hours worked (with multiple variation in commissionable %) which would make it too $25.71 per hour which would be a salary of a support tech making in the industry and they are hiring Senior Business Consultants for this position with 75-90% travel time required.

    Another important aspect: Travel Expense Reimbursement:
    $525 paid per week in which you have to manage your Hotel, Food, Car Rental, Incidentals & or any other travel related charges.
    They pay 30 cents a mile for traveling in your own car which is 22 cents below IRS Mileage rate.

    Benefits:
    Health Ins is offered where employee pays 75% and employer pays 25%
    They enlist Dental & Vision but there is no mention who is going to pay for that.
    They mention 401K but there is nothing enlisted how much they are going to contribute I assume nothing its the employee if they want to contribute.

    Looks like they are trying to get everything out of their employees to make the company benefit the most.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Global Resources (Chicago, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    1. Email your resume in
    2. Telephonic interview
    3. Offer to take a 1 week class crash course mini MBA (on your own time)
    4. Recruiter "talks" to an executive about your resume and determines if you're a good fit (manipulation tactic to establish credibility and create self-worth in the interviewee once they say yes, they almost always say yes)
    5. They put you in a class the following week. They don't use GOTOMEETING, but instead choose to use ADOBE connect which is more of a lecture hall discussion and everything must be typed by the participants). I had 30 individuals in my class. Most were sheep and just interested in making money.
    6.During the course of the training, you'll receive homework and told to review client testimonials (which condition you to believe in the business and the aggressive sales tactics, "end justifies the means". You'll also fill out your employee application
    7. During midweek, they'll tell you if they decided to hire you (if you complete the class, you'll be hired).
    8. The following Monday you'll start doing "Surveys". Have fun manipulating clients!

    I felt the interview was straight forward and to the point.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Global Resources (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed by head of recruiting/HR. Pretty straightforward process. Phone interview staring off with the questions listed below. Sales job! This is a very high turnover position. I do think some of the people on Glassdoor were a little naive to accept a job that I assume was explained to them.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you willing to live with a small expense per diem and commission only in hopes of making big bucks? Not real professional. They churn through these positions losing 50 a year on a base of 100.   1 Answer
