Independent Contractor Interview

Anonymous Employee in Oklahoma City, OK
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Southwestern Advantage (Oklahoma City, OK) in April 2016.

Interview

3 interviews. They dig really deep into the WHY of doing such a difficult job. Each interview is designed to get tougher and tougher which means that students get weeded out as the questions get deeper and deeper. This is good because kids who don't really want to do this SHOULDN'T do it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Southwestern Advantage.

    Interview

    Recruited college students on campus, would hold info sessions on campus. Met in person for about 3 times, first giving an overview of the program and then having you do some research on the company. Eventually you have to turn in a parent agreement form for you to do the job and also sign an agreement of understanding. Interview questions were pretty normal behavioral ones (more introspective focused)

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Southwestern Advantage in February 2008.

    Interview

    Students must be invited to an information meeting, where they will be given all the important details of the program. Information meetings are run by student managers and corporate recruiters, and typically last an hour. At the end of the meeting, students who are interested in applying will go through a screening interview to determine if they qualify to interview. The interview process is three days long and begins the day after the information meeting. Candidates will receive an assignment to do some online research about the company and answer questions about their desire and qualification. Going into the second interview, students are assigned to contact students who have already completed a summer with Southwestern and ask them about their experience. The third interview assignment will ask students to answer questions about why they would be a good candidate. Students can be selected or rejected at any point in the three day process, and typically a reference check with the candidate's parents will take place after the first or second interview. Each interview lasts between thirty and sixty minutes. At the end of the third day, if the students is selected and they accept the position, they will sign a contract and be asked to turn in a parental support letter or a letter of endorsement, which indicates that they are a trustworthy person who has someone willing to vouch for them.

    Interview Questions

    • Every interviewer asks their own questions based on what they are looking for in the students they work with.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. Pay is 100% profit because students are hired as independent contractors who are running their own business. The money they make is entirely determined by the amount of product they sell.
