    I wanted a higher base salary.
    It was fixed and I could not get it. It was a standard base salary depending on the position.
    Because I did a good job selling myself - they offered me a signing bonus- this helped me making a decision

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Canon Canada in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Multi-step process, very stock corporate-style interviews at first, once you meet with the Sales Managers it is more personal, meeting them sold me on the job at that point. I make a job choice on knowing that I can work with people, not just if the profile sounds nice.

    Interview Questions
    • None I couldn't handle. Fairly typical of the print industry and sales.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No need to negotiate. I liked the offer they gave me at the very beginning.

    Account Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Burnaby, BC (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burnaby, BC (Canada)
    Application Details

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at Canon Canada in January 2007.

    Interview Details

    there's 2 interviews: the first interview is more about understanding where you fit in the company, testing confidence, what your past experience are. Then you meet with the sales manager to see if your personality fits with his. Third part is to do the computerized skills test. I find it`s more like a personality test. They want to know if you have the thick skin to be a sales rep.

    Interview Questions
    • how many cold calls door-to-door you`ve done in ur past jobs. I don`t have any, so it was hard for me to answer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    not really, they just asked you if it is ok that u are offered with this package.
