Interview Question – The questions were not difficult. Just make sure to know the sales process. They seem to look for someone with quite a bit of sales experience.

Interview Details – The process started with submitting an application online via the ADP website. I was contacted by an HR recruiter (third-party). A phone interview was scheduled along with profile assessment and submission to criminal and credit background check. Also, I had to submit to a drug test. Soon after I was contacted by the Sales Executive who conducted a face-to-face interview with me. We got along and had very like minded ideas about the position. He then had me schedule interviews with the two sales managers in the office. I would be working with their sales people to sell additional services which would help them attain revenue goals. After meeting with them I would say within a week I received an offer letter from corporate. Very simple and easy process for this particular corporation.

Interview Question –
Nothing new here. If you have interviewed with any technology, pharma, med device, etc. in the past 3 years it will be similar. Behavior based, 'tell me about a time when...'
Don't ever mention that you are viewing this as a 'stepping stone' (even though it is!). Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Fairly limited. You might have 5k worth of wiggle room in the base.

Interview Details – Very backwards process. Was referred to the position by a friend. Had a one-on-one interview w VP, that had previously been twice rescheduled, THEN phone-screened by recruiter. Only to receive standard rejection email w no feedback. Only after I persisted did they give me some drivel about my experience, or lack thereof.

Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Pleasanton, CA May 2011 – Reviewed Jun 17, 2012
Interview Details –
They had me do a powerpoint presentation. The key wasn't so muh to know the details of the products but rather the high level conversation. This consists of prentending to know the challenges of the pharmaceutical companies of today and then the issues presented to you on the makeshift website. You do an agenda, feedback (high level and specific issues) then present ADP solutions, a ROI then close for next steps.
Also, know your 30-60-90 day plan was also asked.
Negotiation Details – there was no negotiation. the pay is terrible.

Interview Details – Contacted through a recruiter for Small Business opportunity. Told I am too qualified and moved to Major Accts opportunity. Phone interview with recruiter - easy. Phone interview with VP- very comfortable. In person interview with 2 Regional Managers- pretty easy questions here too. Position is Hunter - no real extensive relationship building. Very much focused on cold calling.
Interview Question – Do you prefer calling on completely competitive accounts or existing? View Answer

Interview Details – I was able to get in through a friend, who referred me to one of the Sales Recruiters. That was a big help. I had applied numerous times online with no results. The recruiter was very helpful, I felt I was prepared for the interview. There were a lot of typical "sales" questions of how you would handle a situation, which were fine. However, when we reviewed my resume, the hiring manager kept on me about not having any outside sales B2B experience, which I didn't. They also went through my my entire resume and asked why I made the decisions I made regarding jobs, going all the way back to my first job out of college, which is 15yrs ago. I have some marketing background and that didn't seem to do me any favors. It seemed like they just wanted "hunters" who didn't think and just knocked on doors, and on the the next customer. I wish that recruiter had prepped me better for that. I am still amazed how much time we spent on jobs I had over 10 yrs ago. They also were very interested in working in a quota driven environment.
