Retail Sales Consultant Interview

Retail Sales Consultant

I applied in-person and interviewed at AT&T.

Interview Details – I interviewed people for retail sale consultant positions through open call hiring fair type of events. We would bring people in and interview them on behalf of the company. We made the decision of who we would hire and who we wouldn't. If a person wore a tie and didn't cuss in the job interview, they were better than 1/3 of the interviewees. (If you are submitting a resume online you will almost certainly have to have some sort of sales job on the application.) We were looking for people who had sales experience, great personality, good attitude and a willingness to work late and weekends. If people weren't interested in working retail hours, there's no point in them showing up. Once someone has reached some seniority, they have some flexibility in schedule. Everyone was essentially asked the same set of questions. They are asked to tell us about a time they overcame an objection or how they dealt with conflict. Interviewers select from a long list of possible questions. Be confident and have a good time.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you made a mistake and how you would do it differently.   Answer Question

Retail Sales Consultant

I applied online and interviewed at AT&T.

Interview Details – Got a chance to attend an interview. Went to the location, there were 3 managers interviewing 3 people at the same time. Questions are typical past job experiences and what you can bring to the table. They are very specific so make sure you think of the things you can highlight about your past jobs before going to the interview. Not hard at all.

Interview Question – Nothing really. They will ask you what is the hardest situation you've been in while working for your past employer.   View Answer

Retail Sales Consultant Interview

Retail Sales Consultant
Tampa, FL

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at AT&T in June 2014.

Interview Details – Hiring process is easy, but time consuming.
• Applied on AT&T's website, completed personality test.
• Phone interview by an AT&T hiring contractor.
• In person interview with a centralized hiring manager.
• In person interview with a store manager.
• Background check, drug test.

The background check company HireRight contacts everyone with a "request for information to assist with background check". Basically, each person needs to scan and send copies of their last W2.

Interview Question – No difficult questions. All standard interview questions.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I received a similar pay offer on a fixed M-F 8-5 shift.

Retail Sales Consultant Interview

Retail Sales Consultant
Colorado Springs, CO

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at AT&T in June 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online less than a week ago and got an email yesterday from the hiring manager, saying he wanted to do a phone interview. I literally just graduated from high school a month ago and am looking for a full-time job. He said that this is a very demanding job, it's very competitive, but the benefits seem great. He was very forthcoming about everything expected of a new-hire, which I was impressed with. Most employers try to just sell you on the job, but he made it clear that it's not for everyone, and I honestly don't think it's for me. He did mention that you need a month's worth of training, but you will be paid salary plus full commission during that time. The starting pay here, in Colorado Springs, is typically $13/hr and then if you meet or exceed sales goals, he said you can make up to $50,000 a year. I don't know how accurate that is, but that's what I was told. The interview lasted about thirty minutes. He just went over what is required and expected, told me how demanding the job is, and asked me some questions about myself. Mainly, he wanted to know what my sales and customer service background is, which is limited seeing as I'm right out of high school. He also wanted to know what I thought my future with the company would be. As long as you're personable, it's a pretty easy and straightforward interview. Nothing too hard. It was actually the easiest interview I've ever had.

Interview Question – What makes you stand out among your peers when it comes to sales?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – The money is really good, but I don't think the job is a good fit for me. I love customers, and I love interacting with people, but it seems like the biggest thing with this company is the numbers, and that's just not for me. It seems like a great job for someone really competitive, who is willing to give up a lot of their personal time, and sacrifice for the company. It's also a union job, so I would have to pay monthly union dues. I'm not against unions, but I don't really want to be a part of one personally. I'm not ready to give up my life for a company that I'm not even sure I'll love working for. That's why I declined.
