    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    Interview Details

    Phone interview...about 20 minutes+. Basic interview with resume questions and what would you do questions. Second interview is an onsite interview. This is a few hours and can be a little nerve racking, but isn't too bad. Meet with several different PM's performance managers and then do a sit in with a current sales agent to shadow to see what the job is like.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Red Ventures in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through their website. They emailed me back within a week to schedule a phone screening that lasted about 5 minutes. During this time, the person I spoke with was upfront about the awful hours that would be scheduled (nights until midnight or later). At the end of the call, we scheduled an onsite interview for a few days later. At the onsite interview, I was first taken into a 1:1 interview in a side room. We went over the hours again and I was asked pretty general questions, nothing too difficult and nothing that would send up a red flag in my mind that I had to get right or else I'd get weeded out. From there I went on a tour of the newest building (RV3) where I was shown some of the amenities like the bowling alley, cafe, and yoga studio. We also walked through some of the call floor and then went into a one-hour presentation on the company where we listened in on a phone call. Everyone else seemed to be impressed by the amenities and casual dress but to me it all felt a bit off. There's a relaxed atmosphere and then there's going too far, and I got the impression that the envelope was pushed a little too far in this regard, like some could forget they're at work and push professional boundaries. Seeing some of the employees joking around the way they were just seemed a little unprofessional to me. They have prizes for top pranksters, as if they encourage that kind of behavior or something. I'm all for having fun and enjoying being at work, but to me it seemed a little much. The employees I met were all really nice but I didn't think this was a good fit for me.

    I wasn't a fan of the overly casual culture; it felt like I was back in high school or hanging out at a frat house. A lot of the employees are fresh out of undergrad.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Red Ventures in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very simple process. First you are given a 5 minute phone interview (easy, I think they just want to make sure you know how to speak) then you are given a 30 minute phone interview that dives into some of your previous work experience. After that I was called onsite for about a three-and-a-half hour day of tours, meeting people and listening in on sales calls.

    Im not really sure why people say the company tries to disguise that this is phone sales. They definitely dont. It's out in the open. But I think they approach the monotony of sales in a very unique way with incentives, prizes, etc.

    You have to do a mock script of a sales call--once again, very easy.

    Inside Sales Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Mill, SC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Mill, SC
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Red Ventures.

    Interview Details

    Met recruiters on college campus, went out for drinks with them, got an invitation to apply. Applied and the whole process took a month and a half. There's a phone screening, phone interview (about ten/fifteen minutes), and if you get through that process you have to come to the main campus for an on-site interview which takes several hours. This interview includes a tour and presentation which are all meant to make the company and telemarketing seem like the most fun ever, then you have an interview with a performance manager who goes through a mock sales script with you and asks you to critique yourself, and then they 'coach' you. THEN you go listen to another sales agent's calls for an hour and this is meant to help you pick up technique and salesmanship skills. THEN you have another interview with a different PM who has notes from the previous interview, and you go through the mock script again. After that, you are returned to the tour guide who takes you through the rest of the campus, and told you will hear from someone in the next couple days. I received an email almost immediately after I left the premise, and was offered a job within several days.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview itself is very, very simple. The most difficult part is the mock sales script and role-playing, especially if you don't have any experience in sales (which I didn't).   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Can't really negotiate for the Inside Sales Position, they're very upfront about what you make. But there is room to make tons of money with the commission aspect... though, that also leaves room for improvement.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Red Ventures in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume online and about two days later I received an e-mail stating that my resume was accepted. I then had to choose a date for a phone screen. I chose the earliest date for a phone screen which was 1 week later. I missed the recruiter's phone call, however they called me back and wanted to know if I was still interested, I told them yes. They asked me what I knew about the company and I explained what I had researched about them and how their company matches my previous experience. The recruiter didn't seem to care about my experiences. She briefly talked about the company and 3 minutes later she asked if I would be available for an in-person interview.The in-person interview lasted 3 hours. I was hired on the spot.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Red Ventures.

    Interview Details

    It was a phone interview for no more than 4 minutes. I was asked how did I here about the company? Would I be opening to there late hour shifts? I don't understand how are they able to find a potential candidate for the position if the interview is only 4 minutes long. Truly I don't understand what I didn't get consider the position I answer the question with ease and the potential answers they wanted to hear.
