    Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at CBS Outdoor.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and about three days later or so, I got an email asking to come in for an in person interview, so I did. It was pretty typical, though the person who interviewed me wasn't very pleasant so possibly expect someone intimidating. None of the questions were out of the ordinary - pretty standard so make sure your responses stand out.

    Interview Questions
    • I guess the most 'unexpected' question was "You know what we do here, right?" So..apparently don't apply for a job that you don't know anything about I guess.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CBS Outdoor.

    Interview Details

    Overall the interview process went smoothly. Sat down with the manager of sales and diiscussed the procedures and what is required of me. It was either a 8, 12, or 24 week process.Since it was a small office with limited employees, it was difficult to find room for an intern.

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at CBS Outdoor in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer was very personable and had an upbeat attitude. She was very specific about the job and graciously answered every question I had about the job. What I liked the best about the interview was that she did not sugarcoat the responsibilities and the atmosphere - she was upfront and honest about it. While I received the impression that she had a great management style and that I may have fit in with the work culture, I realized that the job itself did not fit into my future professional goals. Nevertheless, I would recommend this company to anyone who is interested in ad sales as a definite career choice.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at CBS Outdoor in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Initally had a 1st interview with Sales Manager of the department. Walked into the office the first
    thing that struck me was the lack of noise for a sales floor. It was deathly quiet.
    I was asked a number of odd questions during the interview e.g what my background is?
    And whether I'm a "head down - grafter type of worker?"
    Passed the 1st interview then had a presentation to do - without much imput in terms
    of what they were expecting. Had a weekend to prepare this. Then again had some very odd
    questions asked e.g what makes you lose your temper? and when was the last time you
    lost your temper? I found it strange as it didn't seem to have much bearing on the job
    in hand. Also the feedback they gave me was extremely different to the feedback they
    gave the agency so they didn't strike me as particularly upfront or honest.
    Seemed overall as though it was a "boiler room" type of atmosphere. Not a good first
    impression.
