Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative
Philadelphia, PA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Comcast in April 2013.

Interview Details – The process started with a recruiter calling you about the opportunity available. Next phone call was to set up a phone interview. If you pass the phone interview, they tell you to apply for the job from the website. You are then sent a link to take a skills/personality test. If you pass, the recruiter calls you with a date to do an face to face interview. The interview is usually with two people, supervisor and a manager.

Sales Representative
White Marsh, MD

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Comcast in April 2011.

Interview Details – A really rioters called me and asked if I was still interested. There were some basic questions as to my qualifications, and ability to do the job. Once confirmed, I attended a group interview session. The one-on-one interview went through my resume and qualifications, as well as a skills test. Once I finished my personal interview, I was received a letter of acceptance.

Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative
Baltimore, MD

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Comcast in January 2010.

Interview Details – There was an initial phone interview, followed by a "meat market" Open House, where, if you did well in the preliminary screening phase (completing application, basic questions), you were asked to go in the back with a supervisor or recruiter for a brief, one-on-one interview. General questions about your background are asked, along with the requisite "Why should I hire you?" question. All in all, not too bad.

Interview Question – Name an example of you going "above and beyond" for a customer or client.   Answer Question

Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative

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

Interview Details – The easiest way to start the process is to know a sales rep, however Comcast is always hiring for this position. typically a recruiter will contact you first, they explain the job and ask a few basic question such as are you willing to work Saturdays and why do you want to do sales? then you meet with a manager for the local office you are going to work at. its all basic sales questions they want you to sale yourself to them. Also before you meet with the manger you have to take a personality test. you want to sound as if you always take charge and you are able to think quickly on your feet. This job is what you make of it. Comcast will drop you in a sec if you don't make your numbers. there is a lot of freedom with this job so don't abuse it or you will find yourself short of your quota.

Interview Question – What is the last thing you would do if you were unable to close a sale?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – no negotiation.

Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Comcast in August 2010.

Interview Details – Interview lasted about 20 min. I did most of the talking describing my knowledge and experience. Had Director come in immediately once they figured out I knew the technology. Made me an offer the next day but did not give me a chance to learn more about the job. I had to accept the job before getting any idea about the comp plan. Once on board made it sound like I would be buried in leads. Reality is Sr. position is treated like a beginner position with no opportunity to develop vendor network. 2 conference calls a day required company wide w/ team and manger asking what you are doing today- how many door knocks, leads entered presentations and meetings. Standard is 40+ doors, 20 calls, 3 meetings and at least 1 contract. Big quotas for Sr. level but only 2 months to get funnel filled. High pressure environment, preach consultative but reality is transactional environment. not much assistance w/ CRM/Proposal tool. End up with mistakes that you must clean up in addition to other duties.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – Not much information given during interview phase. Lots of Koolaid to drink. Make them describe the sales process first in detail. Create churn and burn environment. Good for beginners but they are reluctant with details up front.
