    Business Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Houston Texas Consulting (Houston, TX) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a headhunter from the Houston area. I had 2 sit down interviews with the company. We talked about the companies clients and what the game plan is for expansion. The company has extremely high goals and great clients. Having a chance to be face to face with the team was something that really calmed my nerves since I am currently employed I was worried that I would have to quit my current job before accepting a position. Company has a lot of positions available and is expanding in this kind of economy is why I decided to chase the position. Organic growth speaks to my ears. I have been pasted up for promotion 1 to many times.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Houston Texas Consulting (Houston, TX) in March 2014.

    Interview

    When I received the phone call from Houston Texas consulting, I was under the impression that this would be an advertising / ad agency type of work. I was explained a "Generic" description of the job / position available and I just recently moved to the area and needed to find employment. I was told the location, to bring a resume and dress appropriately (which I did all of the above), when I arrived, I filled out the application they requested. Waited 10 minutes and met with a "Hiring" Manager. The interview lasted only 10 minutes and I was told they would pass their recommendations to their "clients" and that if I was selected I would receive a phone call by 2:00p.m. It was never explained to me what they actually do. If it is a sales position, then please tell me up front. I am very confused to this day as to what they do. Also, the website is very vague. It just didn't seem like a fair shot or an legitimate business.

    Marketing Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Houston Texas Consulting (Houston, TX) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted within two days of submitting my resume online. They were quick to schedule a first interview.

    The first interview was typical. The manager asked about strengths, weaknesses and recent availability. It lasted only 15 minutes and I was told I'd be called later that day if selected for a second interview.

    I received a phone call hours later and was invited for an onsite interview the following day. I was told to wear comfortable shoes as each presentation to clients was standing.

    The second interview was not much of an interview but instead a shadowing of a "marketing representative" that performed the same duties I would. I joined the employee for door to door sales for the majority of the business days.

    When we returned to the office, I filled out a short questionnaire and asked a few questions about my experience. The following day I was extended an offer.

    Overall very quick process, but not what I had expected.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Houston Texas Consulting in August 2014.

    Interview

    The questions were very easy to answer, very little about your knowledge and more about your personality. The questions were very generic like where do you see yourself in 5 years and what are some words you'd use to describe yourself. The interview lasted no more than 10 minutes. Overall I don't think they truly cared about the answer my questions but more in the way I answered. They were looking for high energy confident answers.

    Reasons for Declining

    The job is door to door sales and that is not what I was looking for.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Houston Texas Consulting.

    Interview

    They say preliminary interview, but I think it's a face to face to see what you look like. The 5 minute interview that is held can be done over the phone. Questions ask does not suffice for position at all. Something about the entire process didn't seem honest.
