    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Campus Special (Greenville, NC).

    Interview

    Called unexpectedly without an email. When they called we had a 30 minute conversation and I was confident in my call back. Once I got a call back (that was also unscheduled) my phone reception was bad so it was tough to talk to the woman. She asked me questions about things I knew about campus special and how I would handle a situation if a business told me know where I was trying to sell them Ad space. I never got a call back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at The Campus Special.

    Interview

    There is a screening interview and then a phone interview. The screening interview ask basic questions such as: where do you go to school, what is your major, are you active in an clubs/societies/activies. The phone interview has some of those same questions and also asks you to role play a situation for them (gives you a taste of what the internship will really be like and they can get a feel of how your personality and skills will be).

    Negotiation

    They gave me a call and offered me the position and I said yes. They send you to a conference for a weekend in chicago and you get to meet all the other new interns throughout the country. It's really fun and the training is great!

    Interview

    After applying online I received a call from a regional recruiter and did a short simple interview. Mostly just questions about my resume. At the end of the call I was told that I qualified for the next round of interviews, which included a video interview and another phone interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at The Campus Special in March 2014.

    Interview

    Met a recruiter at a job fair and was contacted by someone from corporate shortly afterwards. He requested an interview over the phone but I wasn't really sure what the position was so I asked. He assured me that the details of the position would be explained during the first interview, so I accepted that.

    When I was called for the interview, I was told "We have a lot to get through, so let's get started". Before I interviewed I wanted to know what the position entailed so I asked, but was told that they conduct the interview before saying what the job is. When I asked why, he said they want to know if I'm a good candidate before they tell me. I responded saying the opposite - I wanted to know if the position was for me before spending my time on an interview. The recruiter said he expected that I would have checked out their website to see what they do (which I obviously had), however knowing about a company provides no insight into what a specific position is.

    The interaction ended with me saying I wasn't interested in the position anymore - I have no interest in working with a company that does business like that.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Campus Special in March 2014.

    Interview

    Online application. You get a phone call within a week or two. Then you have a phone interview, which is simple easy questions and they talk to you about the internship program. After that they set you up with a skype like interview. You answer 7 questions while being recorded through your webcam. The questions pop up on your screen and you have anywhere from 5-10 seconds to prepare. Last question you have to give a basic sales pitch. Mine was to convince someone to create a facebook that never had one before and has relocated to a new city. After this you have a final phone interview. More interview questions and they go over your video interview as well.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The Campus Special (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    You will be asked to do two phone interviews and one online video interview. The first phone interview will be with your sales manager, the second phone interview will be done with your sales director (or if he is unavailable with your sales manager again). These interviews will be broken up by a video interview with prerecorded questions that you have approximately 2 minuets to answer.

    Negotiation

    The pay is non-negotiable but a 10% commission rate for an internship is already very high for an internship. The best way to convince them that you are a viable candidate is to show that you are a hard worker and you are easily capable of connecting with people.
