I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Web Design Solutions.
This was an incredibly long process from the very beginning, forcing people to jump through many unnecessary hoops before even knowing if this is really a company the potential employee would want to work for.
Most times the process starts with a brief phone screen to make sure the person is competent, and would be a potential fit for the role applied for, not here.
First you had to call and leave a voicemail with a pitch explaining why you're a "sales all star", then you had to wait and wait, and eventually got an email for you to do this research project or sorts, though it wasn't extremely difficult, it still took time, and at this time I knew nothing about the position specifically other than what was in the description, and what their company website so I was rather annoyed I was investing so much time into something that I might not even be interested in.
Finally there was a phone screen with the CEO, where he asked some of the most cookie cutter basic questions about the resume, things that I haven't heard since looking at part time retail work. For each role, wanted to know biggest strength, even if you already clearly outlined it in your pitch, and biggest weakness. He made it seem like selling web development services to people in the automotive industry was rocket science, and drastically overstated what the commission earnings potential were, i know this because I took time to connect on my own with a current, and former employee there and they confirmed my suspicion.
