    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at The Berry Company.

    Interview

    It was very thorough. Started with a phone interview, then an in-person interview. I did a mock sales pitch during the interview, that was fun. The folks who interviewed me were not interrogative or off-putting, it was very easy to come in and have a conversation with them.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Berry Company (Saint Peters, MO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process wasn't that bad at all. I did a phone interview and was then asked to come in person the following week. When I went in I conducted 2 face to face interviews and did a role play sales call. The following week I received an offer but declined due to the VERY poor pay..... I was offered $26K as a base salary with commission that should put me in the $50-$60K range. I currently make twice that in base salary alone and also receive commission and bonus...... Make no mistake about it, this is an entry level job. You need not apply unless you need experience or you're desperate for a job.

    Reasons for Declining

    $26K base salary is a joke for the skill and level of experience I am at

    Client Services Advisor Interview

    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.

    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.
