Sales Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee

Application Details

I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at AT&T in June 2014.

Interview Details

Manager was an hour late to interview. I was offered a position and didn't accept bc of this treatment. The interviewer didn't have any eye contact or want to be conversational during the process. He sped through it.

Interview Questions

Reasons for Declining

They just want warm bodies. I was treated as a number during the interviewing process. Person interviewing me was an hour late. They have some crazy base pay plus commission - base pay. I want a percentage of what I sell

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 3 months - interviewed at AT&T in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    This was a long process. I think it was about 3 to 6 months total. Once you apply you are contacted by their HR and all your background checks, exact dates of employment and things of that nature. The back and forth with HR is the longest part. Once they've got that info, you receive a call asking if you can go to a facility, that day, for your drug test. Once you pass all that, then you are ready for your actual interview at your work location. I think my interview lasted about an hour. If that goes well, the person you interviewed with at the job location, will give HR the "OK" and then HR gives you the good news. Finally you are given a date in which you start your 12 week training.

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at AT&T in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    My hiring process was a phone interview about my work experience and how I have handled customers in those positions. Questions like how have you handled a difficult customer? Tell me a time you had a problem with your manager? 2nd interview was with the HR hiring person. 3rd interview was at the store location with the store manager. After that and the background check I got an email from the 1st interviewer with pay information, training information and when to go to the store to start work. Took about a month for the entire process

    Sales Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AT&T in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was an internal candidate. So, my process and experience will be different from someone coming in from the outside. Once the offer was made, the leadership team did not want to release me, so they told the hiring manager that he would have to wait for 90 days in an attempt to deny my promotion. Despite the long wait, I did get the position.

    This a very long and arduous process. The background check through hire rite is beyond extensive. The face to face interview itself was not that hard. You are told to try and sell products to the interviewer.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 8 months - interviewed at AT&T in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied for AT&T about 8 months before. I received an Email telling me to call for an phone interview. During the phone interview, I was asked some questions about how my past work experience will help me at AT&T. At the end of the phone interview, she then scheduled me for an 1 on 1 interview. The 1 on 1 interview consisted of questions like why did you choose to apply for AT&T, describe a time you wish you handled a situation at work differently and other similar questions. I was also asked to sell them an item. At the end of the interview I was told I would hear from them in the next couple of days if they choose to schedule a 2nd interview. I thought the interview went well, I felt like I answered all the questions correctly and got a good vibe both managers who was in the room that they liked what they was hearing. Howeverly I did not recieve a call back and went online to check my job status and seen that they had choosen somebody else. A few people have told me that its pretty difficult to get hired unless you know somebody who works for the company. Idk how true it is but after what I thought was a good interview on my behalf, I can certainly believe it.
