All of our promotions are done from within based on performance, not tenure. What this means to you is that you are monetarily rewarded for your hard work and effort. You don’t have to try to climb the corporate ladder or wait for someone to retire or get promoted before you can move up.
A company is as good as the people it employs. If you enjoy setting goals and exceeding them, we encourage you to consider joining our high-impact team.
Our interview & evaluation process for Account Managers consists of 6 stages:
Online Application Process/Campus Events and Career Fairs
Every candidate must fill out our standard online application. Recruiters often meet candidates at various events/career fairs where candidates have the chance to provide resumes and speak to them directly.
After reviewing and verifying background information, every candidate is then screened by our Corporate Recruiters through a phone interview to evaluate if they are qualified for a position at Impact.
After a candidate has been initially vetted, an in-person interview is setup. Based on location openings, candidates will interview with a specific branch manager that will evaluate the individual in order to determine if they are the right fit for the position and team.
Account Manager Ride-along Day
If approved by the hiring Branch Manager, a ride-along day is scheduled with an Account Manager from the branch. This is an opportunity for the candidate to get a better understanding of what the job entails on a daily basis. During the ride-along day, Account Managers will observe how candidates performed and interacted throughout the day in order to give an in-depth evaluation to the Hiring Manager
The final interview will take place at Corporate Headquarters in Lake Forest, IL with either the President of Impact or our VP of Sales. The interviewer will make the final determination for hire.
The interview process can take an average of 30-60 days and will require business professional attire.
Post Hiring Evaluation
After a candidate is hired, they will be continuously evaluated throughout the New Hire process. First, New Hires attend a two-week bootcamp where they will begin training. After bootcamp, they will be tested on what they have learned, followed by an evaluation by the Corporate Trainer. Once the initial bootcamp process is complete, there will be a 90-day performance review.
On-going Education: Account Managers & Service Technicians
Account Manager Training Program
Extensive on-boarding prepares new hires for a successful sales career at Impact. This program extends to two additional boot camps throughout their first year. This period is equally about self-discovery of employee strengths and assimilating new hires into the Impact culture. General sales skills, equipment specs and the unique Impact value proposition are introduced in a 2-week ‘boot camp’ training and reiterated throughout employment with an on-going training program. The Boot camp programs include seminars, lead generation skills, application classes, online coursework and one-on-one sessions with our corporate trainer.
Service Technician Staff Training Program
Our Service Specialists also receive in depth training through a Service Boot Camp. During this training, they are exposed to copier theory including the history and basic principles of copiers, such as mechanical assembly and electrical boards. The specialists are also well informed on networking computers and drivers, both MAC and PC. Also covered are troubleshooting techniques frequently utilized in the field, for example, copier or image quality and jamming. Overall, the goal is to teach them to be most effective for a first call fix. Our specialists also work with our vendors to become certified and ensure complete customer satisfaction. This has lead to multiple certification, honors and awards that we have received from our partners, such as Konica Minolta’s Technician of the Month, Silver Seal of Excellence and Gold Seal of Excellence.
Our award-winning support staff and industry-leading technology partners perpetuates our reputation for superior customer service that drives our continued success.

Outsourced and Managed IT
I have been working at Impact Networking full-time (More than 3 years)
Impact's most important core value is Culture. Culture is important for the clients and employees. Naturally, when you treat the employees well it's going to spill over into the customer space.
I started as an entry level sales rep four years ago and worked my way up to Branch Sales Manager very quickly. Impact believes in promoting from within and truly taking care of the employees.
As an entry level sales rep you will have more support from specialists, management, and peers than you will know what to do with. All you have to do is put the activity in and the rest of the team will help you be successful while you learn the Impact process.
The only con evolves into a pro. You will work hard especially as an entry level rep but if you stick with it, the opportunities are endless. I moved into a management role very quickly because I put in the work and stuck with it.
Advice to Management
Continue doing what you're doing. The culture is unlike anything I've ever seen or heard of. Impact has always invested heavily in their employees and I've really appreciated that over the years.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Impact Networking.
Met them at a college career fair and was given a business card to follow-up ad learn more about the company. After an initial conversation with a recruiter about the role, I scheduled an interview with the hiring manager. During the interview the manager was distracted and on his computer for most of the time.
