    Telephone Sales/EMarketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cedar Rapids, IA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at hibu (Cedar Rapids, IA) in June 2018.

    Interview

    I first briefly interviewed over the phone for roughly 20-30 minutes, and during the "any questions about the company" portion towards the end of the interview, I was cut short and instead scheduled for an in-person interview later that week.

    I was told that the in-person portion would start with a one-hour job shadow and a half-hour interview afterwards. When I arrived at the offices, I was told the shadow segment would be cut from an hour down to 15 minutes because of a scheduling oversight on their part. But I was actually called to the interview after not even 5 minutes of a shadow. Not exaggerating - I sat down with a salesperson at 12:58 and was called to the interview at 1:02. No real chance to ask questions or flesh out the job description.

    As for the in-person interview, this recruiter struck me as a person very unhappy in his own role in the company. Part of a good interview involves convincing the interviewee that this is the place you'd want to work - but there was absolutely none of that. In so many words, my recruiter basically said he distrusts all of his clients, referring to them as "bad people" and "liars". Needless to say my interest in the company is now non-existent.

    This negativity went on for about half an hour - I got the idea that he made up his mind about me before even going in to the interview. He even so much as said that I reminded him of another employee who ended up quitting, and that obviously rubbed him the wrong way. Essentially it was a snap judgment of me without even really trying to work with me during the interview process.

    Next week I'll hear back whether or not I actually got a tangible offer from hibu, but I can tell you I won't take it if I have to deal with SUCH a negative and toxic atmosphere. Do yourself a favor and steer clear of the Cedar Rapids office.
