    Interview Details

    The first interview lasted an hour. We went over relevant sales experience. Did a couple scenarios that will be a part of the sales process.

    Upon second interview they went into detail about the pay and benefits. Due to my lack of home sales, they were hesitant to hire me. The interviewer asked for a business plan on how I would create self-generated leads within first 3 months. I emailed him the plan but I never received a response until I saw the same job posting back up on the company website

    Interview Questions
    • How to close a sale. Especially hard if you dont have in home sales experience.   Answer Question
