    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at marcus evans (Chicago, IL) in January 2012.

    Interview

    iniial phone interview is with the domestic sales mgr, Gurneet.

    Pretty in depth, she qualifies you for a second 1 on 1 interviews--this one is with another manager that works under Gurneet.

    Third interview is with Gurneet and you better sell yourself well.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    none. take it or leave it mentality

    Extremely low base.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at marcus evans (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Fun, light and informative. It was a bit of a shock at first due to the open air office environment. I was expecting at least cubicles, but ultimately it led to better team chemistry. We were all able to feed off of one another. The management team was very professional and had done a fair amount of due diligence on me (as i had on them) before the interview process which i appreciated. After the initial phone screen i met face to face with the hiring manager and some of his associates.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at marcus evans (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview is really a sales job selling you on the company and opportunity disguised as an interview. I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter what you say, as long as you seem somewhat competent, you will get the position.

    Interview Questions

    • Didn't really ask tough questions. Mostly about past experience and if I think I can do this job and why/   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    didn't negotiate base pay, but heard someone else was able to double it through negotiating

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at marcus evans (Chicago, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Professional interview setting asking about prior experience. Was also asked what I am looking for in a career and what I wouldn't like in a career. Interviewer was aware of all internet reviews, especially on this site. Was able to effectively challenge each negative statement and made it seem as if the ones who are not good at selling or have bad work ethic do not make it. Just received call back for second interview with a different manager.

    Interview

    Disorganized and rude. I did the initial phone interview even though the interviewer said at the start she wouldn't discuss salary( a sure sign pay is low). Standard interview questions-I agreed to an in person interview. Checked around before then and talked with someone working there. Base is very low 20's. I have over 10 years sales experience and won't work for that low a base so I emailed to cancel interview and let recruiter know why. She replied with a weird email saying people move around and this affect me in the future. To top it off, another recruiter for this dump contacted me a week later for another position. No thanks!
