    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    They will bring almost anyone in there--there was almost no screening beforehand. There was a test, which was not accurately described by the person who led me into the room to take it, which was focused on a candidate's attitude towards sales, insurance, and selling to people you know.

    After the "test", I was informed that the person I had come to see was "in a meeting with corporate" and would see me the following week. Surely I understood, right?

    Of course no one called. I never heard from them again.

    My resume was reviewed through Monster and they reached out to me to by email schedule an interview.
