When I went it was a group interview with a manager who was clearly a sales person. He was loud and upbeat and attempting to sell us on the job. After about 20 minutes of listening to him ramble he decided to say the job is commission only and you won't make any real money until after you've worked for the company for over a year. He then said don't waste my time by staying if you are not interested you can go ahead and leave.

In our district, we conduct 1-to-1 interviews. If we are overwhelmed by applicants, I sometimes do a 5 minute group presentation and see who is not interested. Each office has different positions to fill. At this time, my office needs sales representatives and benefits counselors, but we do not need a coordinator. I would NEVER be dishonest and try to trick anyone.

I went to the interview and we had a presentation first about the company and the positions they were hiring for. The person that did the presentation listed the positions that were available and mentioned the one that I was interested in, recruiting coordinator. After the presentation you can decide to stay for an interview or reschedule since I was in a room of about 15 people waiting for an interview. I decided to stay for the interview. After waiting 30 minutes for my interview, I asked my interviewer about the position and she basically said that it was a sales position. What a waste! Do not be fooled by the several positions that they let you know is available. It is just a way to get you in the door. I was told that the position I was interested in is a small part of the sales that I would have to do. This company might have better ratings with their consumers if they knew how to communicate effectively.

Group interview... One way first interview... Second interview is informal, and if you want the job you'll get it as long as you dress business professional and have energy.

I went to the interview and got the job. Great, yeah right. The position is for MANAGEMENT, but he said, "if I was to post that I needed reps to start from the bottom and go 30-60 days without pay people wouldn't apply". Do t waste your time and drive out there at all. It's all sales and he's the only manager. It might be good for someone who lives at home and doesn't have bills. The plan is for everyone to be a call rep then go out to the field and sale. None of this is what is posted in the job description.
