    Event Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vistage Worldwide (San Diego, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was very thorough. It started with a 10-15 minute phone interview with HR, then interviewed with hiring manager and team members, next met with VP of department and lastly with Chief Human Resources Officer. Everyone has to interview with this person before a job offer is made. By the time I was hired I felt like I had a good understanding of the position and company culture.

    Chair Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tucson, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Vistage Worldwide (Tucson, AZ) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview: interviewer (female) was very abrupt, almost rude, and did not really answer questions posed to her especially about things in the region for which I was applying. She had no info to provide me, she contradicted the qualifications clearly stated for the position and got defensive when I very nicely asked her about this.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vistage Worldwide (San Diego, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly unprofessional. The Human Resources contacts were disorganized, late and ill prepared to discuss the position. I was not impressed with the recruiter or the department executives. I was actually embarrassed on their behalf.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Vistage Worldwide (San Diego, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    As you probably already know, Vistage does most of its actual client-facing work through 1099 consultants, usually experienced business executives, who "chair" groups of CEOs or small business executives in their home cities.
    I was recruited by Vistage and went through the process. It starts with several interviews with recruiter(s), followed by a WebEx with a regional Vistage exec or execs, followed by an invitation to their San Diego training event. At the end of the event (which I paid to attend, along with all my T&E), I was told that they decided they already had enough people to support the city in question.
    I enjoyed the experience of talking with them, received very positive ongoing feedback and was quite surprised that the fact that they didn't need people in this position didn't come up until the end of the process which took several months of my time and Vistage's.
    My other comment is that it is an enormously time-consuming process for both the candidate and I assume for Vistage given that these are 1099 roles. I've successfully applied for actual employment with much higher earnings potential and actual benefits with significantly less effort.

Then a follow up interview in person with the area rep. If you make it this far you will be invited to a training session. A week long in San Diego at your expense.
