    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at AroundCampus in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    It wasn't very hard. The interviewer was really friendly. Because this is a sales job, she did ask me to sell her an advertising space during the interview. I told her that I might not have experience in sales at that time and she said it doesn't matter, she just wanted to see how well I could do.

    Interview Details

    This is a job for someone that is willing to work hard for their paycheck and not expecting anything to be given to them. The interview process consisted of multiple questions asking how you would handle different situations. You also have to give an example of a sales pitch. I was asked to give a sales pitch about my favorite meal.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at AroundCampus in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    This was not what i signed up for, being that I am an IT major. However, if you are in the sales program this might be a good way to network. I was asked to answer why I wanted the position and some behavioral questions. I was also asked to give a pitch on the spot for a favorite restaurant of my choice. It was a pretty easy process.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    The process took a dayinterviewed at AroundCampus in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The regional manager that emailed me was awesome and kept me at ease throughout the interview. She asked alot of situation questions, but if you can answer them by using real-life examples, you'll be fine. Just display your great work ethic and ability to stay positive in difficult situations. I believe that she asked questions like what is my favorite restaurant and how can I convince her to go there, what are three words that describe me, and what are my weaknesses. If the interviewer likes you, he/she will make it apparent through how she responds to you. If you have the skills for this position (positive, good leader, & hard worker), you will have no problem advancing in the interview process and possibly will even be offered the position!

    Reasons for Declining

    Seemed like too much of a time commitment than it actually paid. Also more of a sales internship than a marketing internship.
