    Pros

    Stocked kitchen with great snacks, in a convenient location and they encourage having a beer on Friday afternoons, worked with a great team.

    Cons

    After 3 months only a few people from my 15 person hiring class were left. Very competitive environment with the mentality of produce or leave.

    Advice to Management

    encourage more realistic role play during training, perhaps with someone who isn't also new to make it a more challenging scenario.... role playing did not equate to the first few customer calls making those much more intimidating!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Main Street Hub (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Entire process takes about two weeks with the actual interview lasting about an hour and a half. You will meet with two individuals and perform a mock pitch with one of them from a script that is sent to you beforehand. What they're looking for is enthusiasm and how fast you think on your feet.
