    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cherry Hill, NJ

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Midwest-CBK (Cherry Hill, NJ).

    Interview

    Regional Manager was always late for interviews and training, sometimes over an hour!!! She was such a poor communicator, that I couldn't fully understand whether I was hired, where the parameters of my territory would be, when I would start, etc. I called and emailed consistently to get any or all of this info. Never had this issue before when applying for a job. Don't think this Regional really wanted to hire me due to my outgoing and friendly personality which has always made me successful in sales and public relations. She was looking for someone as cold and condescending as herself. We were total opposites, and she obviously didn't like my selling style and was out to have me fail from the beginning. Shows how unprofessional this company was to begin with. After being let go after 9 weeks, I immediately got several job offers from my store accounts INCLUDING a major competitor of Midwest! My stores cancelled orders and upcoming appts. with MWCBK after hearing about the horrible way I was treated by the VP of Marketing and my NE Regional Manager. Was a real ego-lifter after being treated so miserably by this company. The person who was nicest to me during this horrible experience was of all people, Mr. Ganz, the OWNER of the company!!!

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Midwest-CBK in November 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed over the phone with a very cheery, upbeat person that told me they would be contacting me for another face-to-face interview. Then I had to fill out a rather lengthy questionnaire and submit that as well. I was really excited and looked forward to the face to face meeting which of course never happened and the Human Resource person never responded to my e-mail. I took the liberty of calling her and then found out the real reason....see below.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Midwest-CBK in April 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online and after the application had to then take this ungodly long and detailed Test, it was crazy long and detailed, almost decided not to even bother applying but did. Recieved a call about a week later from a woman in HR headquarters. Then a week later a call from the Area Manager and scheduled an interview a week later, out of town. Had the interview and went very well, lasted about an hour, she showed me what my territory would be and basically it was half the state. I really thought I wanted the job, knew if would be fun, but the amount they give you for a car allowance and with the gas prices being so high you definitely would not come out ahead. I had my interview a 1 1/i2 weeks ago, not a call......nothing. Not really dissappointed because I was torn as to take the position if it were offered.

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Midwest-CBK in April 2008.

    Interview

    After emailing my resume and cover letter, I was called about 1 week later and interviewed over the phone by someone in HR. A lot of explaining what my past jobs consisted of and my skills. Told me about the position and what was expected of me. About 1 week later I was called by what was to be my immediate supervisor to set an appointment for a face-to-face interview. We met at a hotel lobby for the interview. A lot of "tell me about a time when" type of interviewing. Also she went into more about the position and expectations. I really had to "sell" her on myself. Interview lasted about an hour. She was very personable and easy to talk with. About a week later I received a call from the "big dog" sales manager over the whole company. She spoke with me for just a little while, maybe 15 minutes. About 1 week later, I received a call from my immediate supervisor who interviewed me face-to-face, and she offered me the position. I immediately accepted. Just be ready for talking about past experiences and have figures regarding monthly and yearly sales in past positions. Be very energetic and have a "happy to be there" attitude. You will work out of your home office and your immediate supervisor will not be in the same town that you are in but management is available by phone all the time. Just be yourself.
