    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Battery Systems (Sacramento, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Far too many steps for such a low-end sales job. Face-to-face interviews were unnecessarily drawn out. The manager made a mockery of the interview process, and completely disregarded my time - the interview started an hour late and went over by at least 90 minutes. Unforgivable.

    Interview Questions

    • The usual/staple cliched sales interview questions. Generally unthoughtful and demonstrating very little insight. e.g., "what do you value most in people"? This question is as predictable as any you will get in an interview. Here, there are looking for your own core values by demonstrating what it is YOU value in others. Very transparent questioning.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Battery Systems.

    Interview

    Several phone one on ones then followed up with a meeting with management that was very laid back though detailed in nature.

    I was told they were going to move forward with me, however I heard nothing from them even though I was assured I would get feedback either way. I had to prod to get feedback. Considering how I was initially treated which was good, it did not speak well of the manager nor his superior who promised feedback. If they treat candidates that way...how do they treat their customers?

    Interview Questions

    • If you are a capable manager the questions are not difficult. They do look for passion and desire to grow the business and the personnel.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Battery Systems (Windsor, CA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Awful hiring process - mainly because of the District Manager's terrible interpersonal skills. If he concentrated a little more on the task in hand and not discussing ANYTHING else, then a quality interview may take place.

    Interview Questions

    • None at all. The industry hires a workforce of essentially uneducated (meant in the most respectful way possible) individuals.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Simple. They don't have any experience of professional outside sales personnel.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Battery Systems in November 2010.

    Interview

    A lot of interview steps. A LOT. Three face-to-face (over an hour each) interviews, and two over-the-phone interviews; one with a sales trainer, the other with HR . The three in-person interviews were the worst job interviews I've ever had. Not only was I kept waiting for nearly an hour for the first two, the area manager that interviewed me was abysmal. His questions were sub standard (for any interview), but his ability to [not]listen was the real highlight of the show.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions. The interviews really focus on your commitment to the company; how hard you'll work; your personal growth within the company; how amazing the health benefits are[n't]; and the training you'll be expected to fulfill (notwithstanding the several weekends of training you'll HAVE to to do without any overtime payment, or days off in lieu.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There wasn't one. My efforts to negotiate a starting salary were culled almost immediately. Red flag???

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Battery Systems.

    Interview

    Five (yes, 5) interviews for a very sub-standard sales position. The regional manager was very good at filling me with wonderful ideas about making money at the company - that will never happen at Battery Systems. The time off (more than a few days requested) here is laughable, They expect 6 to 8 months notice for a week to two weeks vacation. In my experience, this is totally unheard of. The level of nonprofessional behaviour at this company is pitiful.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult question at all. Perhaps the most difficult part of the interview was being kept to wait (on two occasions) upwards of 45 minutes, solely because the district manager couldn't stop talking.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Lack of salary and earning potential.
    Didn't trust the regional manager that interviewed me. By that I mean, he wasn't a trustworthy person, in my opinion.
