    I have been working at Investacorp full-time

    Pros

    Some great people who become like family.
    You have the ability to learn a lot IF you are resourceful.

    Cons

    No training
    HR is a JOKE, well the one who holds the HR title because she spends no time being HR and all her time watching you to see if you are stealing a pencil or a pen
    Management is either dumb, drunk or flat out don't care
    They spend more money wining and dining the reps, but can't even keep up the birthday lunches or give their poor overworked employees a review after many years of acquiring work just because the one above them doesn't know how to or just acts like she doesn't know anything.
    You get taken advantage of if your economic situation isn't the greatest, because hey you actually need your job.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a little more attention to your actual employees, there is only a good handful actually working, which 9/10 are your underpaid employees.

    Account Services Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Investacorp (Miami, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process started off with a phone interview. The interviewer asked me to tell them a little bit about myself and then told me a bit about the company and that the starting salary would be $39,000 a year. After that I was invited for a face to face interview at their Biscayne Blvd. office in Miami Fl. After the interview, they set an oppaointment for me to get my finger print done and signed a waiver to allow them to do a background check. Understandingly I did those two things, passed that hurdle with flying colors and an offer was made to me. The offer however was for signifcantly less than the amount quoted before, about $9000 less. I informed them that the figure was not satisfactory and that I was quoted a greater amount during the phone interview. They told me that they would talk about it among themselves and asked me to send a copy of my Bachelors diploma to them. I went ahead and did that and afterwards they asked if I could come into their office again to discuss the job offer face to face. When I asked if they had reconsider the salary and what else exactly would we need to discuss thats when things got weird and the management changed their tone and started talking to me as if I was an idiotic child. Needless to say I declined the job offer because the person that got rude and condenscending to me on the phone just for asking a simple question was going to be my direct supervisor. I refuse to work for a company where they say one thing and then turn around and try to get away with something else. I have two bachelors and an MBA and my education was not free so I refuse to work for peanuts. Job seekers BEWARE! The Account Services Specialist salary is supposed to be $39,000 per year to start, and then with time and hard work the salary will go up (Thats what I was told during the phone interview). When they asked during the interview what you expect to be paid say $39,000 or more. Don't cheapen yourself, they can afford it and you will earn every penny with that lady as your manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Where do you see yourself in five years? Very easy questions and they were nice and cordial during the interview. The front desk receptionist is an angel.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Because the salary was considerably less than what I expected and what I was told during the phone interview.
