    Corporate Trainer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at NYBP (New York, NY) in September 2012.

    Interview

    You get called by an assistant manager for the interview. When you arrive, the manager of whichever campaign drills you about your work background, if you're married/single/have kids. They don't talk about any salary or what the job entails. They thank you and you leave. hey call you back about an hour after to invite you for your second interview. You go out into the field and that's when you find out you're going door to door selling either electric energy, credit card processing or whatever campaign they are running with absolutely no base salary or benefits; it is all commission. They do this breakdown and make it seem like you'll make 100k a year but no one even makes $20k a year. They all struggle. Stay away.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at NYBP (New York, NY).

    Interview

    This company is basically about hiring people to go around different boroughs in Manhattan, (and later in different cities) to small businesses like Pizza places, delis, etc to sell a product/service. If that's what you're looking for, this company has alot to offer you. Its supposed to be a management training thing for a year, where you'll basically be doing the same thing for a year till you become manager. Mind you though, there are only 5-7 managers, and they hire everyday. Hint?

    So the interview is all "professional" carried out by a bunch of bullies, who will make you believe that you will not get any other job. But they do it craftily. There are 3 interviews. The preliminary one is basic (they're probably not even listening to you), the second one is a day on the field with a current employee (that's how I know about the pizza places, etc), and the third one is on that same day where the manager will try to hustle you into getting that job.
    As long as you can walk and talk, they will hire you!

    Interviewing is a part of their job description. They interview multiple people everyday!

    No base pay. You'd be an independent contractor, not an employee. Horrible work ethic. Conniving people. They claim to be a management training company and basically make people do crap

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NYBP (New York, NY) in June 2012.

    Interview

    They make it sound like you will be making more money than you can handle, closing accounts left and right. The job is very hard, you are walking around all day door to door selling services. Sometimes Energy sometimes credit card machines. You have to try and screw people over inorder to make money. Hide fees (because thats where you make your money). In the end they will tell you 5 out of the 7 accounts you signed up didnt go through or didnt qualify and send you home with a $90 for the week.

    Interview

    Simple process, 1st interview with someone defined as a manager, 2nd round walking around one of the five borough with a corporate trainer, then 3rd round with the hiring person, most likely they hire everybody since each employee doesn't cost a dime

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at NYBP (New York, NY) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I first had a great 1 on 1 interview with a very professional manager. Position was presented very well. I was offered the 2nd interview which lasted an entire day. 9:30-5:30. If you're a perceptive person you'll easily notice that they have nothing to offer you. First off, they did not tell me the location in which we were going (which turned out to be the outskirts of queens from midtown, NY), and I had to pay for my own transportation and my own lunch (In which they had "taken" me too) - (these costs were not disclosed before the interview). This is a door-to-door sales position that is 100% commission based. By the end of the interview, they revealed (only because i inquired about it) that I would be considered an independent contractor with a 1099 tax form. There are no benefits and no 401K. Because you are considered an independent contractor, they are not liable for anything that may happen to you on the job. I felt very misinformed and misled.

    Reasons for Declining

    I chose to decline this offer because of the unprofessional-ism during the interview process and also because I need a job that I can depend on with a salary (W-2) and benefits.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NYBP (New York, NY) in November 2011.

    Interview

    The office does not seem as if it belongs in a busy Manhattan building. The hiring managers are relatively nice but seem uncaring in the questions that ask you and when describing their own company. When asking HR the exact position they were unable to answer clearly and no information was given. All of the interviewees had a very vague idea of what they were exactly interviewing for.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    It was a sales position, which is what all of their positions usually are. I was not interested in a sales position.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NYBP (New York, NY) in July 2010.

    Interview

    They call you and schedule a 1 on 1 interview. You go into the office and see that there's tons of other people being interviewed at the same time. The interview itself was positive. They asked questions such as "Do you thrive in a team environment?" or "Do you prefer to work behind a desk or socialize?". They don't tell you the straight up truth, which is that it's door-to-door sales.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NYBP (Hotton, Luxembourg (Belgium)) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Put into a cramp dirty room with paper strewn across the floor, a meter-long shower rod of a place to hang your jacket, plastic bags all over the place on the floor, "applicants" dressed like thugs, dirty carpet, two-minute interview in an office with a wide-open window (if you missed that you'll need to know that means he smokes in the office and I saw an ashtray, dirty, on his desk), and they are brief. I have seen this kind of company before---dime a dozen.
