    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Berry Company in January 2016.

    Interview

    Quick. Offered job same day which I found weird. Perhaps desperate? Was asked to do a role play on the phone in a conference room. Small office. Open space. No privacy. Very quiet place. Very little atmosphere. Managers seemed to be knowledgeable.

    Client Services Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The Berry Company (Dayton, OH) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Typical phone interview then followed up with 2 live interviews on the same day with 2 managers. They pretty much accept everybody, a lot of red flags came up, but i overlooked them. Even those who did poorly in the interview get job offers. It's a cattle call. Unfortunately their major targeting efforts are unsubstantiated quality of clients.

    Interview

    Normal....with manager having final say..the usual written teat, drug test, phone screen. Nothing out of the ordinary, they usually hire to fill a training class so you usually don't have time to consider the decision. the training could be in Dayton ohio or Colorado.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Berry Company.

    Interview

    Phone interview, then 4 more interviews including doing a sales simulation over the phone. Lengthy process for an entry level job. First you do a phone interview with an HR screener. Then if you pass that, you do 2 one on ones in the same day. Then if they want you to keep going, you come back and do a 3rd interview plus a sample sales call.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was told - incorrectly that there is no negotiation on the offer - I found out I was offered less than most others at the same time. I outperformed them all and was not considered for a raise.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Initial contact at a career fair. A few days later got a call to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was difficult. A lot of very specific, detailed questions. I seemed to have passed though, as the recruiter set me up with another phone interview with the Sales Manager. This interview seemed much easier than the previous one. Fewer questions that were not very detailed. Mostly just personality assessment questions. I was told to check my email in the coming days to see if I would move on to an on-site interview. This email was quick to arrive. I would not be moving on. Other than the final email telling me I had not moved on, correspondence was slow. After the initial phone interview, I was told I'd receive a call in 48 hours. 4 days passed before I received the next phone call.
