Sales Consultant Interview

Sales Consultant
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bell Canada in June 2014.

Interview Details – Step 1 - Apply online. Typical stuff, submit a resume and cover letter.
Step 2 - Complete an online assessment. One of the assessments is a combination of a personality tests and "what would you do in this situation" while another is filled with really elementary vocabulary and math tests.
Step 3 - If they like what they see, they'll call you for a phone interview.
Step 4 - If the phone interview goes well, you'll interview with one of the store managers. Both interviews are pretty standard interviews.

Interview Question – What would you do if you were being pressured by a customer to break organizational policy?   View Answer

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Bell Canada in August 2010.

Interview Details – There were two separate interviews. Basically how you deal with stress, what drew you to Bell, are you comfortable with change? (I think this one was important because the services we were to sell on the phone changed regularly so you have to answer yes to get through)... standard stuff. Dont remember the exact questions off hand other than that.

Associate Director Interview

Associate Director
Ottawa, ON (Canada)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Bell Canada in November 2012.

Interview Details – Interview process was very friendly and open. I liked the more casual approach to the interview "as a conversation" much better than grilling the candidate with all kinds of questions from populated forms. Interviews were timely and stayed on target with very fast turn around time. Started with a phone screening and within days was called in for face-to-face interview. After passing this, I was called back for an peer interview. Within hours I had the results.

Interview Question – Not knowing how many other candidates there are, what can you do for us that other candidates probably cannot?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Negotiated salary and extra week of vacation.

Manager - Bell Business Markets (CP2) Interview

Manager - Bell Business Markets (CP2)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Bell Canada.

Interview Details – Through a recruiter. Regular process likely different.

One phone interview with my eventual boss (which was the main one). The position would be at the Toronto campus but she was in Ottawa so I had a follow-up meeting in person with someone else from her team in Toronto.

That meeting I think was just for sanity check because we wanted to fast track it and until then I hadn't met anyone in person (just emails and phone).

Interview Question – Fit questions mostly. Tell me a bit about yourself, what is a professional weakness of yours etc.

She told me I was a strong candidate because I've done something related and my "English was better than the others".

Negotiation Details – Relatively recent grad, and through a recruiter. Salary was agreed upon prior long before the interview.
