Sales Advisor Interview

Sales Advisor
Plano, TX

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at CDS (Club Demonstration Services) in January 2014.

Interview Details – Was called two weeks after applying, answered questions about previous work experience, mostly they just want employees who are going to do well under pressure (it can be a very fast paced environment, especially on weekends) and who have charisma. You don't have to have a lot of experience, just know how to be kind to customers and be able to learn how to close a sell. After a few easy questions you take a drug test (in my case they just used a swab on your gums) and was hired on the spot.

Interview Question – "How would you react to a angry customer?"   View Answer

Sales Advisor Interview

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at CDS (Club Demonstration Services) in April 2013.

Interview Details – First I applied online by filling out an application and submitted my resume'. The very next day I received a call and scheduled an interview. The interview location was in the Costco Warehouse store located in Omaha, Ne., in a room that Costco provides for being one of their marketing companies. First the Interviewer explained who CDS was and who and what they are to Costco. In order to proceed I was given a saliva drug test that was done while the interview was being conducted. While the machine is checking your saliva for drugs, I was given a small booklet to read and learn to become safe food knowledgeable. After I was done reading the booklet and because I passed the saliva test for not having any drugs in my system, I could proceed to the next step in the hiring process. This was a test on what I read, and it consisted of 20 questions I needed to answer on the computer. That took about 10 minutes. I passed the test so the Interviewer explained the next step in the hiring procedure and that was signing papers to allow them to do a background check on me. After signing to allow them to check my background, I was told that until they get the results of the background check would they have me come in for Orientation. Also I was instructed that while waiting for my background check to come back, to fill out some information that has to be done online and that I would receive a call as soon as the background check results come back, and then I 'll be informed when to return to the same place for Orientation. Before the interview was over, I was asked if I had any questions and if what I applied for was something I was still interested in doing, after learning what I would be doing. After giving my answer. I was also given a paper with instructions to complete the online questions and to learn the companies Appearance and Grooming Policy. The interview then ended.

Negotiation Details – I can only say that this type of work is some thing a person could only count on as some extra money that they can earn. You couldn't count on being able to support your cost of living. Because they may not schedule you to do another demo for them and you are told that before your orientation and they state that along with that they don't even have to give a reason why they don't won't you to demo for them anymore.
