    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at SHI International (Somerset, NJ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Professionally handled interview. Met with a member of HR first followed by the head of the department. Afterwards, was given an assessment that was relatively easy. Offered a job about a week later. Would have preferred if they had alerted me to the assessment beforehand though. Met with all individuals one on one rather than in a group.

    Inside Account Executive Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I applied for a job on my university's job board, and was called by a recruiter about a week later. We talked on the phone briefly, and then we set up a longer phone interview for the following week. That lasted about a half hour, and we decided to move forward with a Skype interview with the recruiter and hiring manager. I got the offer about a week later, and accepted roughly two weeks after that. The whole process from application to acceptance was about a month and a half. Everything was very positive, the only reason I rated it as neutral was because The recruiter didn't send me some important information about the skype interview until the night before. She was very nice and apologetic about the situation though.

    Interview Questions

    • A time you've dealt with a difficult customer and how you handled the situation? How do you deal with rejection? Many sales based questions when talking with the hiring manager   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiating. Base salary is 30k with uncapped commission. It was a lower salary than other jobs I was looking at, but after talking to the manager and looking at salary reviews it appeared that most people earn around 45-50k in their first year

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SHI International.

    Interview

    Very Easy. They know that they are hiring mostly kids right out of college so the questions are very basic. You receive a phone call and that will be a brief 15 minute talk then they ask you to come in for an interview and you will met with two people separately. Then you will take a short quiz on your knowledge of sales and how you would conduct yourself with a customer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SHI International (Austin, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    In-person Interview, pretty laid back. The person looked at my resume and ask me details about my previous sales experience. She went in-depth on how I would feel about making cold calls all day and how I would be able to handle those kinds of situations. Mostly, I think they are looking at your personality and if you are easy to talk to.

    Interview

    Straight forward interview, standard questions. Met with HR and sales manager. Very simple interview process, not incredibly stressful. As long as you know what your typical interview questions are, just study up on those, be yourself, and you'll do just fine. Seems like a great company to work for, very nice offices.

    Positive Experience
    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.
