    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Select Group.

    Interview

    This was the most unprofessional recruiting process I've been through. The recruiter was constantly asking me what other companies I was interviewing with and really wanting too many details about other jobs/companies I was looking at. They made negative comments about other companies and made me feel bad for interviewing with other companies at the same time. Claimed that they "didn't know where my head was" - that's not their job (in my opinion)

    Associate Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at The Select Group (Charlotte, NC) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I originally applied online, received a phone call and did a brief on-the-spot interview where I just talked about myself and why I wanted to join the staffing industry. Next, I was emailed several questions about why I wanted to go into sales and why The Select Group should hire me. These responses were to be typed up and emailed back to the recruiter. Afterwards, I did a Skype interview with the recruiter. This consisted of typical interview questions, and just served as an additional screening process before granting you a face to face interview with the hiring staff. Soon after I interviewed with two people at their offices, and it went well...or at least I thought. Fairly easy questions, and just a lot of talk trying to get to know each other. I didn't get the job, but they were fairly professional and seem like a decent organization.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at The Select Group (Raleigh, NC) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Phone call--personality test, skype, in person, shadow with a member of the team. It's a 2-3 week process. Not very hard..just overly time consuming since they're desperate for employees right now.

    Account Manager Interview

    Interview

    Pretty easy interview, interviewed with three different people. Very nice and outgoing people. Don't know why I didn't get the job. They were looking for people with a lot of past sales experience. Still had a good experience though and it wasn't very stressful. There office is in downtown which is neat because it is in the NASCAR hall of fame basically. They all asked me about myself, so basically I did an elevator speech three different times. They called me back about a week later with no offer

    Associate Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Select Group (Charlotte, NC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    In my case, the interview process was pretty straightforward. I applied on LinkedIn and was contacted the next day by one of the recruiters. I was not impressed by the initial conversation with the recruiter as she lacked professionalism by asking me personal questions. If you ‘pass’ the phone screening and the sales questionnaire, the recruiter will schedule a Skype interview (basically a personality quiz). I was initially interested in the company because the recruiter sold me the idea of working in the IT field as a ‘Delivery Manager.’ I found out that The Select Group is simply another staffing agency. I did not like that the recruiter misguided me in believing the job was more than a sales job. The Account Manager position is just a sales job. The Delivery Manager position is just a sales job.

    Applying to this company was a waste of time, if you are considering working here, please do yourself a favor and look at the background of the people that work there. You can find their profiles quite easily on LinkedIn, they all have the same generic LinkedIn profile.
