    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Heartland Payment Systems.

    Interview

    I was emailed by one of their Division Managers about an opportunity. After looking into it and seeing it was a 100% commission outside sales job I responded thanking her for her interest but I wasn't interested in commission only positions. She responded with a passive aggressive and condescending message implying I wasn't mature enough for this kind of position and that I would be back asking her for this job in a few years. I responded back in kind and she thought it appropriate to begin calling me several times and harassing me on the phone are all hours. It took multiple conversations to get her to leave me alone.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Heartland Payment Systems.

    Interview

    Easy process, not-so-great role or company investment or support.
    No base salary, 100% commission (structure omitted), all outside sales working remotely, no territory, no car or phone allowance, no leads. Pure hunter giving back more than your fair share to the company.
    Basically unpaid door to door sales in the overly saturated payment processing industry. Not for the weak, nor wise.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norfolk, VA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Heartland Payment Systems (Norfolk, VA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through LinkedIn and received a call the next day from a hiring manager. We talked casually for about 30-45 minutes, told me about the position and salary (100% commission), asked about my job history, etc. - told me if I was interested, he would send me an email assessment and get me on board in the next week. During the interview he claimed people were making not 100k, like other companies will tell you, but $200-$300k a year. That's a little outlandish if you ask me. But I am a young graduate and can't depend on commission only, that's a little scary. I didn't even both with the email assessment.

    Interview Questions

    • None really - the standard questions: how would you close a lead, name a time you overcame negativity in the workplace, etc.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    100% commission is unpredictable.

    IT Interview

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process varies depending on the department. My personal experience was that the interview was fairly easy and generic. I had one interview with two individuals, and I received a job offer shortly thereafter. We basically just reviewed my resume and discussed my experience. There were no difficult or unexpected questions.

    Implementation Project Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Heartland Payment Systems (Charlotte, NC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Two interview process, first one was a phone interview that lasted about an hour. The second interview was in person and last four hours. Interview included a tour of the building and being interviewed by two managers individually. The last hour of the interview they put me in a room and gave me a production problem and asked me to figure out what the issue was, how to solve it, and what you would do. Very interesting setup for the interview. Since it was the end of the year, the process took several months because HR did not give the hiring manager approval to move forward after the second interview. Once the new year started the hiring manager told the headhunter they decided to not move forward with filling the role.
