    Customer Service Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Applied Industrial Technologies (Cleveland).

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted by an HR Rep from HQ in Cleveland. The position itself was located in Indianapolis. The interviewer came off very rude and curt about my previous experience. He snickered when he asked about a recent layoff and asked me what happened there. I've been through many interviews and was left with a negative impression.

    I was asked for an onsite interview and despite our difficult schedules, we were able to have one. The interview was basic previous experience questions until the second interviewer joined. During this portion he asked me several unprofessional questions including asking me if I was married (I am a young female) which made me very uncomfortable. Not only does that open them to potential lawsuits its just not necessary to ask a female applicant if she is married. He then asked me if I "moved up here all by myself" which I found condescending and odd. I don't know if this was their way of trying to see if I was a single mom with children or what exactly the end game was. Through out the line of questioning I was basically forced to divulge a lot more information about my private life than I feel an interviewer should know. If an offer was made to me, I would decline.

    Bottom line, if any of your employees are interviewing potential applicants I STRONGLY suggest giving them additional HR training or having a rep present.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Applied Industrial Technologies (Cleveland) in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    They fly you up to Cleveland, put you up in a nice hotel and if you have a pulse you will get the job. Extremely easy interview process with 3-4 different people who really just want to know who you are as a person.

    Interview Questions
    • They were all straight forward, are you a good person type questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They don't pay cost of living, you get essentially the same salary if you live in the boondocks of Mississippi or downtown LA. So make sure you bargain a good deal. They will budge, ask for more than you're expecting because the bonuses they promise each month are 1/5th of what they say they will be.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Applied Industrial Technologies (Cleveland) in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    First phone interview with corporate recruiter; then in-person interview with branch manger, service center manager, and regional manager. Phone interview was typical, interview with regional manager was tough, asked questions about who was a historical leader I looked up to me, also what books I have been reading, and questions about gross margins. He made it seem like his interview was about how I won't waste his money. Branch manager interview was great, went out for lunch and had a pretty informal interview. Wasn't able to meet up with service center manager due to issues.
