    Promotional Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vanguard Direct (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied and interviewed for the promotional inside sales position. First off, AMY (THE HR REP) YOU WERE AMAZING! I met with the ceo, the Coo and the business development manager. Even though I may not have been chosen for the position, (which was disappointing to say the least) management was very professional and it appeared like a great company. Normally I don't post reviews, however I believe giving credit when due. Nonetheless this experience has given me the motivation to start my own promotional product company and I definitely have to thank Vanguard for this motivation!!!!! Nonetheless, it was a positive experience all around! It made me realize I still have a lot to learn in the business.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vanguard Direct.

    Interview

    Phone screen, then 3 panel interview and no offer

    I was applying for an entry level role, 1 year out of college with similar work experience, but fell short. If you don't have a GPA of 3.5 or better they won't even bother despite the type of worker you are. They ask you STAR format questions but what's the point when one of the person on the panel had his phone going off three times throughout it. The people in the organization seem old and stuck on their ways of operation so they outsource a majority of the work to india and use project managers to over see it from the Newark headquarters. Good way to get a job here is to have industry experience or intern prior to applying for the role... It wasn't a complete waste of time, but wasn't all that I had hope it would be. The environment,just seem hostile with cubicles.
    You would expect to grow into an entry level role, but not here.
