    Sales Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marietta, GA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at OneMain (Marietta, GA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, received email for phone interview. Had phone interview with recruiter. A week or so later received another email for a face to face interview. It seemed to go well, but this job is for a certain type of person. You must be a go getter, you will work long hours, and you have to be a great multi tasked. You will be required to go out and drum up business as well. A typical day working here is making sales calls to former clients, making collection calls and taking care of phone calls and closing any loans. They require about 20 a month. One thing to remember is that this job you wear many hats and it takes close to a year to be comfortable in your job.

    Branch Manager Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at OneMain (Denver, CO) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online after reviewing their website and watching a 20 minute video. I researched starting salaries in my area and the data showed mid 40's. They outsource the initial interview to Kelly and I immediately received an invite to schedule a phone interview. I did. The interviewer was late and disorganized and asked if she could call me back. I graciously said yes and waited while I juggled my schedule to accommodate her.

    Interview Questions

    • We didn't really get to the interview as she started with my salary expectations. I had answered some pre interview questions she sent via email. While I hate discussing previous salaries as I am taking a step down in income but really need a job. She said mid 30's and it appears that if this is a cold call sales role, commissions are only paid when goals are met. I spoke to two former employees who were much younger and used this role as a stepping stone for better roles with other companies and they said the goals were unattainable.   1 Answer

    Sales Manager Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hollywood, CA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at OneMain (Hollywood, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of 3 interviews at various locations throughout the area. The 1st is a remote/phone interview where you speak with a recruiter. The district manager and branch manager that I met with were looking for someone who could sell the loan and close the deal. They stressed that it was really important to meet monthly goals. In the end, I did not feel that it was a right fit for me because I could not see myself selling something that I myself would not buy. The company intentionally loans to people with below average credit and follows up with them through collections. The interest rates are higher than that of local banks. The justification given for this was that there are other businesses in the industry who have even higher interest rates. Sure that may be true, but in the end getting a loan from a legitimate bank or having a trustworthy person cosign with you(as a customer) seems like the better alternative.

    I applied online. I interviewed at OneMain (Goshen, IN) in August 2017.

It was 24 h ago, I haven't heard from the manager yet.

    Sales Management Trainee Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at OneMain (San Diego, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The Sales Management Trainee position is a complete joke, and it's very misleading. This is not a management trainee opportunity, it is a sales rep opportunity. When asked what the training program to become a manager was, the interviewer simply said that in two years, if you've done well with hitting your sales goal, and displayed some type of leadership traits, youll get your own store.
