    Sales & Marketing Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carson, CA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at OLN (Carson, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    First part of the interview: basic questioning and screening; if passed then you will be asked to come to a second round of "interviews"

    The second part of the interview requires you to shadow a sales manager/associate from 9-5:30. I followed around someone the whole day while learning that this is similar to going door to door (within designated businesses) to sell a specific product. The Carson City's location was selling T-Mobile contracts.
    Third interview: You're interviewed by the CEO and is evaluated one last time.

    It was a pretty extensive process for the interview considering it was a sales job. I appreciated that they were transparent on what the job position is, but it would've been a better experience if you were at least paid for it.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at OLN (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and it took about 1 week the recruiter lady contacted me. She sounds nice. I scheduled an interview next day. I was the only candidate when I got there. After I fill out some forms, the company president came out to get me. He was nice and asked some general interview questions. Nothing too tricky.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carson, CA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at OLN (Carson, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It was a two step process to get hired. So for the first round there was a 15 minute interview, and the second was an all day shadow interview. This is the biggest joke of a company I have ever seen. They refer to it as a "management training program" but this a complete lie. You go door to door in a specific territory to businesses to switch to t-mobile. This is not management training at all. Many people at this company are all drinking the same strange cool aid and think that they are all going to be running the business in 24 months time. Do they think we are all dumb because no that's not how you run a business. Stay away from OLN this was a complete waste of my time.

    Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    15 min first round interview + a whole day shadowing interview to get an idea about working as an "account manager" there - this is the stupidest interview I've ever had. Not only because the people there are not well educated, but also they seem to be brain washed by the leadership of this company. All they know is to follow the rules and system and they are told eventually they will open their own office, which is ridiculous because you don't run a business like that.

    Reasons for Declining

    This company and its people make me feel super dumb. It's door to door sales. They just approach random owners of stores on the street and call themselves account managers. I don't know why there are still people want to work for this company. Maybe because they don't have other options. Super negative experience, especially the second round. Such a waste of my time

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at OLN (Carson, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The first step is an interview with Elijah - he is great because he is really clear about what he is looking for. If you pass the step, you are invited for a full day shadowing! And this is great because you really understand what the job is about! After that you have a feedback meeting with Elijah as well, you comment on the day together and you share great points of view!

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Whittier, CA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at OLN (Whittier, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Three interviews

    1st
    A waste of time as they spent 10 minutes getting to know you and sharing very little about the company. It's a waste of time because no matter what they call you back for a second interview.

    2nd
    A shadow interview where you SPEND all day walking business to business with a current employer and he tries to sell their product.

    3rd.
    A post interview after shadow day that also takes 10 minutes but you get asked more important questions regarding your goals and what you want from the company.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you fear about going business to business doing sales.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The company is great, a lot of cool people and so much good emergent and vibes. However, I am the person who can't go business to business doing sales. I personally don't believe I gain anything out of that aside from communication skills and sales skills.
