    Junior Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting (McLean, VA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    First of all, I didn't realize that the two companies, Zerin Business Consulting and Omega Business Consulting are sharing the same office and they are partners. I got interviews for both companies and that's when I found it strange. I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist until I met the hiring manager, and then we went through my resume and experience, and who, what the company is and what they do, nothing about the position duties and responsibilities, when I asked, the hiring manager said they will talk about it at the second round interview which is shadowing someone who work there. At the end I asked the relationship between ZBC and OBC, he claimed that they are partners, and they will share information, so that I don't have to show up for the afternoon interview with OBC.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting (Fairfax, VA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    One of the best interview I have ever attended, it was very interactive and educative. The questions were direct and simple because it a job related but academic. The time was well managed so I didn't feel bored. The most interesting part of the entire interview process was when I was give the job description and the interviewer asked me to make comparisons with what am doing in my present job. Tea and snacks were offered during and after the interview which let me love the company more .

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting.

    Interview

    Applied through career builder and they called me the next morning! Left a message and sent me an email. I asked the interviewer what the real duties of the job are and to give a better question and she tried to change the subject or just dodge the question. And then finally she said it's door to door sale after asking many times. Very unprofessional and unethical. They prey on desperate job seekers.

    Management Training Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting (McLean, VA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I didn't apply for this position actually, I was called based on my resume uploaded to a career website. Prior to the interview I read about the company and the interview here so I knew what to expect. I was interviewed by the CEO and he told me that this would be the 1st round of a three-round process. It was just 10 mins with easy questions. I didn't need to introduce myself and he was not interested in my work experience. He didn't say anything about the position, but I asked him if it really is a door-to-door sales position and then he said yes it is. I was selected for the 2nd round but I declined, door-to-door sales is not my thing,

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting (McLean, VA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I spoke with the Organizational Admin Consultant a few times, then she sent me one page worth of questions to answer, I then wrote my answers and submitted them. They reviewed my paper, and accepted me for the internship. I started it a few days after being accepted. Overall, it was a very easy process!

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting in March 2015.

    Interview

    Prior to the interview, I did a bit of research on the company and noted that many referred to it as a "door-to-door" company. Having prepared my questions for the interviewer, I waited for the call. As a first impression, calling 15 minutes late is already a bad indication. The interviewer was very abrupt and asked very basic questions about experience and personal goals, which is expected. However, the interviewer was reluctant to answer my questions about percentage of travel time and the sales aspect of the position. I was told that I would get a response by 5:00 pm the next day. That following day, no response. A few days after the interview, I e-mailed and called the interviewer to inquire about any possible results. No reply to my e-mail and the call was rejected after two rings - didn't even go to voice-mail. My one suggestion is that if you have someone who is genuinely looking for work and takes the time out of his/her day to interview, do not waste his/her time if you intend to behave unprofessionally.

    Junior Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting (McLean, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First interview: on the phone, they described themselves as a business consulting firm and emphasized that they consult other businesses in marketing their products.
    Secondary interview: they take you out for lunch or coffee and tell you what the business REALLY is. Which is NOT a business consulting firm. They are actually a direct marketing firm. Meaning you will be working from 11am-8pm walking around neighborhoods selling other company's products and services door to door. They even are willing to send people alone to do this (very dangerous). The place in which I was taken was so loud I could barely hear the interviewer, which may have been intentional. This company also is actually created through another company and their clients are given to them from this other company that remains nameless to you until you own your own firm. A company that does not wish for any association to it's own branch does not sound like a safe bet. Let alone the already blatant disregard for employee safety walking door to door.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Zerin Business Consulting.

    Interview

    The ad posted:

    "Junior Executive: Will be trained to interact and communicate with potential and existing customers as well as develop professional and personal managerial skills. Developing strategies for effective communication and presentations, time management, how to win and keep customers and public speaking."

    The job description was vague and the compensation was said to be $2,900to $3,500 a month.

    For my first interview, I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist who chatted with me until it was time to be interviewed. I met with the owner of the company who was very pleasant to talk to. We talked about my skills and why I thought I was a good fit for a business management position. For my second interview, I was taken to a Starbucks down the road and I realized it was a pyramid scheme. I would be going door to door to try and sell Verizon Fios. I sat through a very boring and irritating speech about how I could be making 90k in so many months. The base pay starting out would be $100 a week plus commission. Hours were M-F 11:00 to 8:30 and Saturday 11:00 to 6:00ish. I was invited for a third interview but I knew door to door sales wasn't for me. They were very pushy with persuading me that this was the job for me. I thought taking a run for the door was more appropriate....
