    Team Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Valen Enterprises (Austin, TX) in April 2016.

    Interview

    What a fun day! I thoroughly enjoyed my entire experience with Valen. My first interaction with Audrey was personal, pleasant and informative. I then met with a manager named Victoria, her energy was infectious as she spoke about the opportunities within the company; it was relaxed but professional.
    I was invited back for a second round interview, I thought that Audrey and Victoria maybe just had upbeat and outgoing personalities, but the energy continued the entire day with other members- I could tell it wasn't the typical sales and marketing setting. We saw some follow up appointments in the morning and met with new accounts and businesses in the afternoon, one of which even giving us ice cream for helping her out- WIN/WIN in my book. Regardless if they give me a call back or not, i thought the full day was a great way to experience not only the work but the culture.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Valen Enterprises (Austin, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was nothing short of intensive with the second round consisting of a full day spent with a team member. Although it was helpful to see into the work the company expects you to do, it is a bit overwhelming for the purposes of interviewing. Overall, not a bad experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Valen Enterprises (Austin, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty standard first interview. I was asked all of the typical questions: what are your strengths/weaknesses, etc. Once I learned more about the position I was instantly turned off. I have applied and interviewed for at least 5 jobs like this and have finally learned my lesson. They always make it sound like its a great marketing job or something but it's always going out and cold calling on businesses. No thanks.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Valen Enterprises (Austin, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Seemed as if it was an assembly line process. They ran you through as fast as possible. When you called to check on the status or decisions of the interview and left a message for them to return your call, they did not even have the common courtesy to do so.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Valen Enterprises (Austin, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I received a phone call about two days after applying for the position. It was simple questions just asking about myself and how I could fit in the company. I went down to Austin for an interview with Victoria and she was absolutely awesome. The questions were pretty typical. I will say if you want to work in a traditional work setting this is not the place for you! Valen is very unique and modern which is one of the reasons that drew me to the company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Valen Enterprises (Austin, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, had a phone interview the next day, and was called in for the first in person interview the same week. I interviewed with Victoria and a manager based out of Ohio who was visiting for the week. They were very candid and asked questions to make sure it was the right fit. I was invited back for a second interview, which lasted from 9:00 am - 6:30 pm. In this second interview, I shadowed two employees on their "T" (route) for the day. At lunch, the senior employee broke down the pay scale and the way to move up.
    Honestly, I see why they interview the way they do and the way they have their business structured. However, the work as a salesman first aspect was not a fit for me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Valen Enterprises (Austin, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    It was a three-step process:
    1. Brief phone screening
    2. Brought in for a standard interview at the office a couple days later
    3. The next day you would go out with employers for a "hands-on" interview process to see how the company functions. However, it is the entire day aka 8-10 hours of going to business to sell t-mobile contracts.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Valen Enterprises (Austin, TX) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I didn't actually remember directly applying to the company. I was contacted and told that zip recruiter had thought based off my resume it might be a match-- and Im so glad they did! I had a lovely experience the entire way. I was a little lost and the HR team was nothing but helpful, I was greeted immediately with a great handshake and smile. I see some complained about the music- I thought it was a delightful change of pace from some of the other company's i've been interviewing with! Not to mention and beautifully decorated space. I can tell they care due to the level of thought put into the lobby and office spaces.
    Victoria the manager's energy was CONTAGIOUS. Sure they were a bit behind schedule, 15 mins or so, but she had this aura during the interview that you could just tell she was passionate about the company, the growth, and the team.
    The second was brilliant. I went out with a team member for a full day of observation and it flew by, it was fun and I was attracted to the variety I could potentially have in my day

    Marketing Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Valen Enterprises (Austin, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    They called me within 24 hours of me submitting my resume to schedule an interview. I had an appointment at 12 and when I walked in there was dubstep playing so loud you couldn't even hear your own thoughts. There was also 2 other people waiting for interviews. Apparently the two girls Kaley and Caroline who scheduled the interviews had a "last minute" meeting, so there was another girl (I forget her name) conducting the interviews. Because of this they were running about 30 minutes behind. Basically, this position is door to door sales and/or cold calling, which is not how it is advertised on their job descriptions. They offered me a second round interview and I declined. Not for me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Valen Enterprises (Austin, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview was just a introduction into the company. Next interview was in person. Waited about an hour and they were still behind. With two other people ahead of me waiting two hours already. I decided to leave because they should learn to reschedule or keep everyone updated if this problem happens. Didn't see any information about the company in their lobby or anything. Didn't think the process was worth my time if they didn't tell me straight forward what the position is about.
