Retail Sales Representative

Interviewed at AT&T

Interview Details – Interview was a cyber interview. Recorded questions and timed 2-3 minute responses. The questions were standard questions such as Reasons for joining the At&t company, your values, your strengths, your weaknesses. I was concerned with the audio and when the hiring manager would receive my replies if i recorded my responses properly but upon my phone call shortly after, everything was done properly.

Interview Question – Knowledge of retail or if one had has retail experience before   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – still a full time student and they wanted to employ right away. they mentioned contacting me later again but when they did it was to let me know i was no longer a candidate

Interview Details – The current interview process involves meeting with a member of the HR team. They are looking for sales and customer service experience. Lots of "give me an example of a time when..." They primarily recruit from retail companies that have cellular or electronic sales. Think about challenging sales and customer services situations that you have had and how you overcame them.

Interview Question – The classic what are your three greatest weaknesses. Honestly don't get hung up on oddball questions the good recruiters keep to practical questions. If you flunk always reapply. They always need good sales people.   Answer Question
