    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Vivid Marketing (Baltimore, MD (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, spoke with the HR Manager for the initial screening process, met with a hiring manager for a first, face to face interview, and a current Account Representative for the 2nd interview, which was actually to shadow them and see the position. It was really interesting to be able to do that, because it gave me a hands-on view of the position and company culture. I was able to also get to know current employees and get their candidate reviews of the company and it's leadership and growth opportunities as well.

    Interview Questions

    • It was a very interactive interview process, and since the job shadow was spending a few hours with a current Account Representative, it was a less formal setting, than the usual sit-down with a suit and tie. There weren't necessarily traditional interview questions, but instead questions throughout the whole process about my leadership, goals, and experience.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Vivid Marketing (Columbia, MD (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Initially applied through a recruiter and was brought in a few days later for an in person interview. Interviewer was a higher up and fairly personable. He proceeded to tell me the ins and outs of the job. The job title seemed fairly misleading considering its more of an in store sales job, where you stand in big chain retailers (i.e. walmart, sams club, etc.) and sell customers walking in whatever product the client is requesting. At the time of my interview it was Verizon Fios.
    After the initial interview they then bring you in for a second in field interview where you get to go to said retailer and watch some of the team on the floor, they as well will ask you to sell to a customer as well in order to gauge your potential. Finally there's one last phone interview to answer any remaining questions you may have and gauge your interest in the job.
    Overall it was a very straight forward process and the team there really does seem like a nice bunch. However because I felt mislead about what the position really was for, as well as the unique work hours (10am-7pm, Wednesday-Sunday), I turned down the offer

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Vivid Marketing.

    Interview

    Interview was interesting to say the least. They presented some strong arguments about the choice of work. Impressive at the most. Offered me a job (of course) I mean come on it is sales. thought about taking it but in the end chose another firm that offered me slightly more in terms of salary and benefits.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Vivid Marketing in April 2014.

    Interview

    They were very communicative during the interview process. I had to go into the office for a 15 minute interview and then I got called back to shadow an employee for the day. We drove to a nearby territory and went door to door on businesses to sell them products. It was good to be able to see what I would be doing there on a daily basis.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Vivid Marketing in March 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through an online application, within two days they contacted me and set up a first interview. During the first interview they explain (very superficially) the position and the advance placement options. The recruiting manager ask basic questions about my best abilities, flaws and where to improve. It was a very short, 15 min. interview. I was told that if interested I would be called up to a second round of interviews.
    That day, they called for a second round of interviews for the following day in which a whole day process was followed. Basically it was being on the position, that's when I found out that it was a B2B sales position. Walking around the city, door to door. This process could be done in half a day and set up the final interview before or after noon. By the end of the day I was taken back to the office gave feedback and gave me feedback on my performance.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Interview

    The interview process was awesome because I was able to see what I would be responsible for doing on a daily basis. Vivid Marketing reached out to me once I submitted my resume, told me more information about the position I was applying for and scheduled me for a preliminary interview. During my preliminary interview I got to sit down with the CEO of Vivid Marketing where she went into detail about the company as well as the position. I was then called later that day because I was selected to advance to the second round of the interview process. I was able to spend the day with a top representative in the office to observe them acquire new customers for the client as well as retain current customers. The girl I went on the second interview with was very helpful and answered the questions I had for her. during the 3rd and final interview I was again able to sit down with Chrysanthi, the CEO and she answered the rest of the questions I had. I was then offered the position the following day and was able to start training soon after.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Vivid Marketing (Towson, MD (US)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called in for a face-to-face interview. I was excited because I thought that this would be a real marketing position that was similar to an internship that I previously had. Unfortunately, they lie on their job description and I did not stay for the full interview. The position was a sales position in which you stand at a table in a big wholesale store such as Sam's Club and Costco and flag people down to sell them a product (e.g. skin care products).

    Interview Questions

    • The basic questions you get asked - what are your strengths and weaknesses and what experiences do you have in sales and customer service?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I was not interested in the position and was lied to about the job description.
