    AT&T Retail Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  San Ramon, CA

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at AT&T in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was called for an interview at San Ramon but I lived in Vallejo. I had to decline the interview schedule because of far travel distance from my home. But I had a phone interview prior to my face interview. The guy from AT&T ask me if I was interested and I said yes. After that, he had asked me a various questions like if I'll be willing to be trained outside location and to be shouldered by AT&T, willing to work long hours of standing, work on late hours, work without accommodation and some other practical questions.

    Then I realized after I ask my wife that the place I'm applying was far from my home. The salary will not cover most of my expenses (toll, gas, rent, food & etc.) So I have to decline the interview.

    Note, after a week, AT&T still emailed me if I'm still interested in AT&T San Ramon. I didn't bother to reply back.

    AT&T Retail Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tupelo, MS
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral - interviewed at AT&T.

    Interview Details

    I was very qualified for their open position. There senior manager told me in my interview that I was a perfect fit, but I wouldn't get the job. He went on to explain to me that I was not black or male. He then tried to ease the impact of his statement by explaining that they were required to have a certain percentage of minorities in every retail setting. Needless to say, I was flabbergasted. I did not record any part of this conversation. I would have sued if I had.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at AT&T.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very comfortable and questions were directly related to the position. Their main statement during the interview was "sell yourself". They are interested in knowing how your work experience will be useful for the position and how motivated you are as an individual. After the initial interview with corporate, there is an interview with the store manager which can be a little more intimidating. Overall the interview and hiring experience was very positive and to the point.

    AT&T Retail Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at AT&T in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process:
    Application (online) --> HR assessment/questionnaire (personality based questions- You have 48 hours to complete this section) --> HR Manager Phone Interview --> Regional Hiring Manager Interview --> Store Manager Interview --> Background Check/Drug Test --> Job Offer --> Month-long training

    HR Interview - Straightforward inquiries regarding previous experience, availability, and contact information.

    Regional Hiring Manager Interview - The toughest part of the process overall. Dress professionally (suit not required, tie recommended). Bring a few copies of your resume and print out a list of questions to ask after the interview. Bring a pen, and be sure to have a folio or something to carry your resume in. Try not to look nervous (fidgeting, posture, etc) and speak clearly. Follow the STAR (Situation - Task - Action - Result) method to keep your answers concise but sufficient. READ UP ON THE COMPANY! (Yearly/quarterly reports/social media page/etc.)

    Questions:
    Why did you choose AT&T over other competitors? Why do you want to work for AT&T?
    How can your previous experience help you in this industry? Describe a difficult customer interaction and how you solved it.
    How do you deal with stress? What is your greatest weakness? What are your strengths?
    What do you know about AT&T? What can you do for AT&T?

    Be sure to ASK questions after the interview. This is very important and it shows that you genuinely care. The interviewer had a massive stack of resumes and said that he had a lot of candidates, which was intimidating. I received a call the next day from the interviewer and scheduled an interview with the store managers for the next day.

    Store Manager(s) Interview - Same as before (dress professionally, bring copies of your resume in a folio, have questions listed/ready). This was significantly easier than the previous interview, but it lasted about an hour (I had a lot of questions and wanted to have a conversation with the managers).

    Questions:
    How do you deal with irate customers?
    Describe a normal sales interaction with a customer.
    How does your previous experience relate to this job?
    Tell us a little about your education/previous job/etc

    Be sure to show genuine enthusiasm and concern. Give specific examples and use the STAR method.

    The hiring process lasted about 3 weeks for me. The background check is ridiculously thorough and the drug test is straightforward but must be done within 24-48 hours of receiving the job offer email

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at AT&T in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process does take a while from the time you apply but it is certainly worth the wait. For me, I was referred by a friend who is an AT&T engineer. With his recommendation of me, I was able to get an interview within 2 weeks time.
