Very Difficult Interview

Summer Sales Intern Interview

Summer Sales Intern
Raleigh, NC

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AroundCampus in February 2009.

Interview Details – I was approached by a representative at a career fair at my university. They asked me on the spot to schedule an interview and within a week we met to have a one on one interview. Advice to others: this company/position is decievingly laid back. I expected an informal, get to know you kind of interview because of the nature of the position and the personality of the recruiters. The recruiters/managers were very nice but the interview was intense so be prepared! After this they conduct a written interview via email which is more low pressure and easier to swallow.

Interview Questions

  • Tell me one interesting fact not work related about yourself and explain   Answer Question
  • Tell me about a time when you set a goal and did not reach it, how did you handle/overcome that?   Answer Question
  • What would your friends compliment you on?   View Answer
  • What would your friends be likely to criticize you about?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The position was commission based and in a down economy it is not good to be selling less than stellar advertisements to businesses that are barely staying afloat.

Outside Sales Representative Interview

Outside Sales Representative

I applied through other source and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at AroundCampus.

Interview Details – Originally, I sent in my resume via email. Then I received an email from the Regional Manager asking me to complete a virtual interview. The virtual interview was I believe about 6 questions, with 2 minutes to answer, and 2 attempts on each. Then my Regional Manager called me and asked me a few questions over the phone. The final step was to complete a survey about the process. Within 2 weeks, I received a phone call with my offer.

Interview Question – What is your greatest failure?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate. All the terms were very reasonable.

Sales Intern Interview

Sales Intern

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at AroundCampus.

Interview Details – There are three interviews. The first one is a phone interview to get to know what exactly you are looking for. The second interview is a Skype interview, my Skype was not working so their was no video on my end. A couple of difficult questions asked. He asked me what I wanted to gain out of an internship, why I would be a good candidate. I was also asked to pretend to sell a company an advertising slot on the back of an agenda book, they said they were passed their budget so I had to convince them yet to still buy a spot in our advertisement. After this he called me back two days later offering me a position.

Interview Question – Sell me this slot in the advertising section of this agenda book   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – It is not worth all the travel. It was cool that they had training in North Carolina. You only earn $200 a week but it is taken back after the summer and subtracted from all the commission you have earned. Commission is only 15% of sales. There is a lot of traveling required and a car is needed. The salary definitely was not going to cover the costs of all the travel involved. It did seem like a good experience but not worth the time if you are looking for something that pays well with good hours. Hours were 8-5 which is a lot considering you are only getting 200 a week. They try to lure people in by advertising it is a "PAID" internship but when you do the math definitely not worth it.

Outside Sales Representative Interview

Outside Sales Representative
Chapel Hill, NC

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at AroundCampus in May 2009.

Interview Details – Applied through the career center at my University, got a call from the recruiter a few days later. Interviewed over the phone with the Regional Manager I would later work under. Interview was pretty basic, and nothing out of the ordinary, basic behavioral questions (describe a situation in which you provided great customer service, how do you work in teams, etc). Lasted about an hour. The last 20 minutes or so were spent talking about the job itself. Got a call back about a week later informing me I'd been accepted for the position.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you provided excellent customer service.   Answer Question

Outside Sales Representative Interview

Outside Sales Representative
Columbus, OH

The process took a day - interviewed at AroundCampus in March 2012.

Interview Details – The regional manager that emailed me was awesome and kept me at ease throughout the interview. She asked alot of situation questions, but if you can answer them by using real-life examples, you'll be fine. Just display your great work ethic and ability to stay positive in difficult situations. I believe that she asked questions like what is my favorite restaurant and how can I convince her to go there, what are three words that describe me, and what are my weaknesses. If the interviewer likes you, he/she will make it apparent through how she responds to you. If you have the skills for this position (positive, good leader, & hard worker), you will have no problem advancing in the interview process and possibly will even be offered the position!
