Inside Sales Representative Interview

Inside Sales Representative

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – The wasn't any difficult questions asked.   Answer Question
