I have been working at MRINetwork full-time
Great training and commission and opportunities
Requires high level of phone time thus not for sales people who like in person selling
The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at MRINetwork (Richmond, VA) in November 2016.
A recruiter there reached out to me about an opening in their office. I replied to the LinkedIn message and scheduled a phone interview which went on for 45 minutes. This was the process after that
I was invited in to talk with the president of the organization which took 3 hours where they talked about my goals and what they were looking for in their next hire.
A week went by and I reached out to them several times. Eventually, they reached back out and scheduled another interview with another member of leadership, the president's father. I participated in another 3 hour interview. The interviewer asked extremely personal questions "to get to know me better". The questions revolved around family.
After another week, I reached out to them again and they scheduled a brief 15 minute interview where I would essentially attempt to sell my skill set to them over the phone. They judged it based on the amount of time it would take for me to call, sell my skillset, and then close the sale.
I met with leadership again after 2 weeks. The start of the meeting was them talking for 20 minutes about my fitting into another position with another company within their company. (People Solutions). I sat with a member of the original company for about 20 minutes (The Richmond Group) and then 20 minutes with the new company (People Solutions). After that, I met with the President of PeopleSolutions for 20 minutes and then left. This was the only stage in the process that someone was actually taking interview notes.
I still haven't heard anything and after two weeks, I figured I didn't receive the job. After over 6 hours of interviewing, it would have been nice to at least receive a decline email or phone call. A friend of mine works for another one of their company's and she loves it. Personally, it was unprofessional and uncomfortable process but the people were nice and the environment was better than what I'm currently in. I really wanted the opportunity only because of my current position.
