    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The Acquisition Group (Victoria, BC) in August-2015.

    Interview

    It was just like any other job interview. Went over my history and then went over what the job was. Because it's a sales position, they are looking for enthusiasm as well as motivation for money. This is a commission only position so you need a lot of drive in order to do it.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. It is all commission based.
