    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SHI International in April 2013.

    Interview

    The initial interview (via phone) was with HR. We reviewed the job description and expectations, no unusual questions. Interview #2 (via phone) was with a Regional Manager. No unusual questions except the job description changed. Interview #3 (via phone) was with the Regional Manager and a National Manager. Once again, the job description changed.

    Interview Questions

    • Prior to the 3rd interview, I was asked to prepare several items. Considering my level of experience I found some of this unusual.

      2 Business References
      Written Communication
      2 Writing Samples (you can delete or block the recipient) – Should be actual emails that you have sent to someone

Detail the products or vendors you would approach to work with you , how you would engage them, and put together a quick presentation that you might deliver to the client to sell them on the solution.
      • Create a list of top 10 accounts that you would target as your “big accounts” to prospect and sell to. List at least one initiative they have going on over the next 12 months that you see SHI can assist with

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SHI International (Austin, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process at SHI was pretty straightforward. I met a recruiter at my college career expo and from there was invited to an on-campus interview. The recruiter was very friendly and approachable and basically wanted to know my personality and background. From there, I had a second interview with a hiring manager, and they went into more detail on what the job requires and the training process. It is a sales position, so many questions were related to sales. Overall, very good experience and both the recruiter and hiring manager made me feel at ease.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SHI International (Somerville, NJ) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was energetic and exciting until lackluster salary was discussed. For a company that prides itself on hiring young, naive graduates, they don't seem to understand that loans are expensive to repay -- and almost impossible to do so with their meager offering of peanuts for pay.

    Interview

    There was a lack of clarification during the email conversation and I actually showed up for an in person interview just to be told that the recruiter was not there. Afterwards, there was a short phone interview with the recruiter apologizing for the mix and then I was ask to come interview in person. The process was quick with more time spent going over my experience and resume.
