    I worked at Insight full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of benefits, great teamwork, free outings, prizes. I learnt a lot about sales and technology and about attention to detail for every sale. You start off with a crap book and have to make your way to the top its dog eat dog and sales. Management knows who cares and who doesn;t, you can see who will last and who won't.

    Cons

    Work life balance kind of sucks, a being a newb can be very tedious calling other peoples dropped clients, and not making progress even when you try hard as ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nice to your new group help them out they do want to succeed and it is hard when first starting

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Insight in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    After my resume and application submission, I was contacted via phone for an initial screening interview. The conversation was easy and the individual very friendly and open. I was contacted for a second in-person interview at the local office. The interview was fantastic. We went through the company provided interview requirements, however, it ended up being more of a conversation based on my experiences and morals. Essentially the manager wanted to know if my personality would fit well with his and his staffs.

    I was told I would be required to sell an item, during the phone interview, (ie. a pen), however when I had my one-on-one interview I was not asked. It was by far one of the best and most comfortable interviews I have ever had.
