    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Interview Details

    My friend who already accepted an offer to work as an inside sales rep, referred my name to a recruiter. I was contacted promptly via email a few days after this. A phone interview was setup with the recruiter. The interview lasted approximately 40 minutes. The main objective was to explain what was expected for inside sales reps.
    After this interview the recruiter arranged a panel interview with 2 mangers. During this interview they asked a few questions to test my knowledge of the field I was pursuing.
    I was asked to preform a mock sales scenario. They asked me questions about my resume and why I have interest in HP.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was a telephone interview only. No tough questions. It was clear that they were working on volume rather than quality. I was recruited through a 3rd party contractor so I wasn't a direct "core" employee of Hewlett Packard, which made it easy for them to accept or reject candidates. Or in my case discard them.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions presented whatsoever. After being hired during the first day of training they made it clear that the decision was based on their perception of our personality over the phone.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Hewlett-Packard in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Decent, but lacked depth of exploring my skills...went too heavily on my resume. Culture seems broken, HP seems lost in the space I was skilled to work in. One potential co-worker actually called me names when I asked about work-life balance....that was all for me.
