    Retail Sales Representative Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sprint (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    After submitting on Sprint website and filling out an hour-long test and questionnaires, got a call from district GM to come for an interview. Came early, interview started on time - 2 people interviewed me, male and female, they said each "managed about 10 stores".

    Cons:

    I was asked if I would be OK to go outside the store and distribute flyers and "stand on the street sign shaking" - when the store is slow. SIGN SHAKING!!! I politely noted that usually companies are hiring separate people to do those things (keeping to myself that a degree or even high school education is not required to perform those duties, not even an ability to speak English) but they didn`t get the point and pressed that the retail sales people should be OK doing those things.

    Bummer! I really thought sales people usually are inside air conditioned store selling things, not standing on the street in 100 degrees LA heat inhaling car fumes sign shaking! Little did I know...

    I have lots of sales experience so naturally I asked what are the opportunities for promotion and moving between the stores for best performers, in case my store does not have a higher level position open. The lady enthusiastically explained that "Yes definitely, I can move you from on store to another. If you perform great and your sales are high, and there is a store in a slow location that is struggling with making their quotas - I will move you to that store!" Did she hear herself? That just didn`t make any sense. So if I sell great - I`ll be put to the worst location? No, thank you!

    The base pay is 12-14/hr "depending on experience" and they made it clear that they start you at $12. The guy said "commissions is where people make the most money".

    At the beginning, I gave them my resume and they both started reading it saying "Tell us something about yourself". I was waiting politely for them to finish reading (I guess they have never seen my resume before??), and was told to start talking WHILE they read. I said "well, I thought I`ll give you a moment to read first" and was told "go on, we can read it and you can talk at the same time". At that point I wanted to leave. I mean, that`s disrespectful - to do or read anything while the applicant is talking, and especially disrespectful to show that they both did not even prepare for the interview by taking one minuted to scan through my resume.

    The back office was filthy dirty and the arm chairs had huge numerous holes in them, they looked like they were taken from a homeless person. I had to sit on one of those

    PROS: I didn`t see any. Being put in the slowest location because I am great in sales and stand on the street sign shaking is really not an appealing job. I wasn`t hiding my reaction during the interview LOL was such a waste of my time!

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Sprint (Overland Park, KS) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Met with two managers and the interview was low intensity. Nothing complicated. I think they were more interested in my demeanor and if I would be a team player. They were conversational and not direct in their questions in anyway. The interview did not go long. I was in and out in about forty five minutes. I do not think there will be a second interview.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sprint (Portland, OR) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and was called in for an interview with the store manager. During the interview another sale associate was present too. They weren't hiring at the location I applied and was interviewing for another location that was a part time job, which was kind of odd. I had to reapply online for that position and was told to expect a call back. There was no call back.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sprint in April 2015.

    Interview

    In all 3 people took the telephonic interview. Interview started with Technical question from the 2 people who were going to be my mentors during the internship. Then the 3rd person was asking some HR questions in between. In all the experience was OKAY. Interview went unto 45 minutes. Overall they will not grind you if you don't know something.

    30 minute interview with three individuals. It was very casual with no technical questions. It was more of them getting to know me and trying to determine if I would be a good fit on their team.

    The interview was very simple. I was interviewed by one man and one woman.
    They confirmed I was qualified; however, nearly their entire staff was male, and her boss had been pushing her to hire more women.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sprint (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I received a call from the Indirect Account Manager about 3 days after applying, she did a prequalifying call and spoke about a phone interview, then scheduled it for 2 days later. That interview went great, very easy. She asked about handling certain sales scenarios. At the end of that interview, she told me I would be moving forward in the hiring process. She scheduled an over the phone panel interview for 2 days later. I am an out of state candidate, and I offered to travel for a face to face panel interview, but I was ensured that it would not put me at a disadvantage, and I am "great over the phone". I put together a 30-60-90 day sales plan (I was not asked to do this) and presented it over the phone to the panel. There were 4 people in the panel and most consisted of National Retail Account Executives, or Indirect Account Executives. They each asked about 3 questions.

    I was told that I would be contacted by the end of the week. I was contacted, but could not answer due to work. She did not leave a message. I called back twice, and my call was never returned. I looked online and it said "Not selected".

    Long. Be prepared to compete with other sales associates as I'm noticing a carousel of employees coming and going from other providers. Also, you will be required to meet with at least one store manager and then the DM. Don't be intimidated.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Sprint (Reston, VA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Responsible for contracting Federal accounts. Experience and success required. Recruiter set up the interview. I think the panel must have had drinks at lunch. They were silly. Did not take the interview seriously. Later I learned that they had an inside person already selected and had to go through this process to satisfy HR. What a total waste of my time. Later, I did receive an email of apology.
