    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ridgefield Park, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at INC 2000 (Ridgefield Park, NJ) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by Inc 2000 out of the blue. They said I applied, however, I have no record of ever doing so. This was my first red flag. They wanted me to come in right away for a 20-minute interview. This was my second red flag - no hiring manager can determine if someone is a good fit in 20 minutes. I began researching Inc 2000, and looking for any errant positions I may have clicked the "apply" button for, but could find none. Then I found a wealth of information about them here on Glassdoor. I read through every review and quickly decided this was a company that intended to prey on people. My career goals are the complete opposite as a nonprofit communications professional so I immediately canceled the interview. Thank you candidates for giving me the head's up!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at INC 2000 (Ridgefield Park, NJ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    There are three interview process that must be done. The first one is about a 15-20 minute talk at the office. Then you get asked back for the second interview which is an on set one, which I walked up and down a street in Hackensack trying to sell cosmetics. After selling for awhile then you sit down with the person to talk about the experience and what you are looking for in the internship. I was asked if this is a job I can see myself doing what we just did. If you say yes then you go back to get another interview with the owner. I said no so I left.

    Marketing Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at INC 2000 in August 2015.

    Interview

    The office is decked out in sports advertisements, with ESPN playing in the lobby. You will probably be told that you were supposed to interview with the president but he had a "sudden emergency" in Manhattan so someone from HR will interview you. They just want to know if you can sell. You will need to sell products and meet a quota. It's commission based and 100% a sales job. Don't get swept up in the fluff, if sales is what you're looking for then go for it, but don't let them persuade you into thinking "direct marketing" means selling makeup products door to door.

    Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at INC 2000 (Ridgefield Park, Bergen, NJ) in March 2015.

    Interview

    DO NOT GO ON THIS INTERVIEW. the first interview went great, they told me very vague details about the company. They raised my expectation very high. Raymond interviewed me, he told me about how this could potentially lead to a 6 figure salary position. He also said how you get to travel and train all over the U.S. I knew it was too good to be true, but I decided to go on. He then asked me if I'd be willing to come in for a second interview. I felt so special considering their were ten other people in the waiting room waiting for interviews. I come in for my second interview three days later and I see all familiar faces. They hand me a form that tells me to check off what I look for in a company. I checked off personal growth, management, and environment. Raymond called me and another interviewee into the office and paired us with two sales reps who were to show us what we do. Part two is below my whole story doesn't fit.

    Part 2: I write down their license plate number incase I die. I follow them from Richfield park to butler on rt23 north. Me and the interviewee split up. I am with the male and now is my chance to ask 21 questions. I ask him what we are to do. He hands me a bag, and it is fillied with makeup essentials. We are to sell these DOOR TO DOOR to workers in the stores. I laughed in his face, I told him that I would not be participating and I watched him proceed to get 9 no's. Thank god I drove myself, I dismissed myself, and I told them I was 100% not interested in this "direct marketing 6 figure door to door sales job." One of the worst experiences of my entire life that I have decided to write an actual blog post on this and I will provide the link on here soon. Please do yourself a favor, don't apply here, you're better off at McDonald's because they actually give you hourly. This place is a scam for people about to graduate college in my opinion. Xo

    Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at INC 2000 (Sloatsburg, NY).

    Interview

    The first interview took place in their office. It was short and brief with not much information or room to ask questions. They immediately called me to offer a second interview. The second interview was a waste of time in my opinion. We started about half an hour late. I had to drive all the way to jersey city area with three other "teammates" where I would learn what they do. I had originally applied for account manager but was told I had to start in entry level sales. After being brought around jersey city, they told me I had to drive all the way back to the office to fill out a questionnaire. After the second interview, I was told I would get a phone call the next day from their CEO. I didn't receive the call until 3 days later so I saw this as unprofessional.

    The company seems unprofessional. They tell you you'll be making 150K in a year but this is a scam. Its all based off of commission to start which they didn't explain in the first two interviews. And the hours are extremely unreasonable. They want you in the office Monday-Friday 8:30-6:30 and Saturday 9-6.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at INC 2000 (Ridgefield Park, Bergen, NJ) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Very informative. I left with a good understanding of what they are looking for. It was definitely exciting to hear about all of their plans for growth. The entire interview process prepared me for understanding what is expected of me. There was a 2 part interview. The first was meeting with the CEO and going over qualifications. The second interview process was a little more lengthy. It was a chance for me to see if the position would be a good fit for more and went into depth with the job description. I knew exactly was I was getting into prior to an offer being made.
