    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at International Sports Management (Portland, OR) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Not too many questions to me. A lot of explanation of how the business worked, who the target clientele was, what products were offered. The benefits and salary were presented. The ZipRecruiter ad listed $40,000 - $60,000 (plus commissions). This was not at all the case. The monthly salary is $1,750. Most first year employees earn $40-60K with commissions. Medical and dental benefits start after 90 days. 401K (w/ match) starts after 6 months.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at International Sports Management.

    Interview

    Two Interviews. Barely asked any questions about my background, they basically just wanted to know if I could hold a conversation and was desperate enough for a job. Was a little misleading, made it seem like there would be more account management but it's strictly cold calling. From application to start date was a week for me. It's fast for a reason, they need to constantly higher and not for growth reasons but because people keep quitting.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at International Sports Management (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Initial phone call interview from a team manager to gauge your interest in the job. They give you an idea of what the company offers and what the position does. You then have a first in-person with one of the team managers where they go more in depth with what you will be selling. After that, if the manager likes you then you will set up a second interview with the VP who gives final approval. Easy interview overall but they do not full explain what is required of you until the first day of training.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you think you will be good in sales despite the lack of sales experience?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation of salary or anything like that. You are told the pay structure. It is the same for everyone and hook you with the commission possibility but the base salary is low.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at International Sports Management (Chicago, IL) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Process took almost 2 weeks. Submitted info through Careerbuilder.com, contacted by a Sales Manager, quick conversation on the phone and set the 1st interview. Initial interview lasted about 45 minutes, which included a lot of background about the company, my experience, and a lot of Q&A which I appreciated. I read reviews on here and addressed some of my concerns, and the manager was very open about what they are looking for (including acknowledging the glassdoor comments, some of which have enacted changes in their training program) and how they've grown over the last year to make changes for the better. Showed me around the office and met a couple of the sales staff. Second interview was in the office again, this time w/ the SVP-Sales, answering any other questions I had and went through some 2nd-level stuff on my background to try and find more of a fit since I didn't have much B2B sales experience. Ended up getting the position.

    Interview Questions
