I worked at Venus Group (More than 5 years)
They offer a good product line
Understanding the current market conditions
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Venus Group (Foothill Ranch, CA) in June 2013.
Head hunter contacted me, set up phone interview with him, then the VP of Sales, Then one on one with VP and Co-Owners. Overall process took one day in their offices. Following interviews I received a low offer to start with no commission for the first year. I countered with a much higher salary and with commission to commence at start date.
Run away, and find another job offer unless you have a handle on control freaks.
