    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in College Park, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in College Park, MD
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at AroundCampus in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was for the most part pretty typical. The one thing that I found to be particularly difficult was the pre-recorded interview that I had. I did not like it very much because it did not allow me to build rapport or talk to a real person. Instead there seemed to be a lot more pressure because I was not talk to a human but rather a pre-recored interviewer.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question I faced in my interview was to describe my most embarrassing moment. I had never heard this asked in an interview before so I was not expecting it. I was unsure of what to say but didn't want to take too long to respond. Luckily I remembered an embarrassing event from a few weeks prior so I just told that story.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at AroundCampus.

    Interview Details

    Networked at a career fair on college campus. Submitted my resume and had an interview scheduled for the following week. The interview was very conversational, and they really wanted to know about my availability, strengths and weaknesses, and why I would be the best salesperson out of the dozens of interviewers. One of the last questions was a mini-case where the interviewer asked me to perform an impromptu sales call for a local business that I liked

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at AroundCampus in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I initially received an email about the job, I sent in my resume, the interviewer (who was my regional manager) called me and set a time to initially meet me, when we met we set an interview. The interview process involved alot of prep questions about my experience, personality, and future plans. I was then called a few days later and offered the job, and further filled out information in an email sent to me. I initially liked my interviewer who was very personable, and when I went to training for a week, all of the staff are very friendly and helpful.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at AroundCampus in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    Applied through the career center at my University, got a call from the recruiter a few days later. Interviewed over the phone with the Regional Manager I would later work under. Interview was pretty basic, and nothing out of the ordinary, basic behavioral questions (describe a situation in which you provided great customer service, how do you work in teams, etc). Lasted about an hour. The last 20 minutes or so were spent talking about the job itself. Got a call back about a week later informing me I'd been accepted for the position.

    Started with a phone interview mostly detailing the specifics of the job. The second interview was a face-to-face interview with a manager mostly asking behavioral questions. A main purpose of the interview is to make sure you are ok with being rejected and failing occasionally.
