    Territory Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    The process was significantly drawn out and should have been a warning flag towards life at the company. Over the course of 5 weeks I was asked to continuously meet with another person even after meeting with the top decision makers. There are just too many people who want their voice heard and no significant leader.

    Interview Questions
    • Please list five adjectives people will use to describe you should they need to eulogize you   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    In all the interviews there was way too much contradiction. They claim they wanted growth yet they were constantly talking about saving money.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at CORT Business Services in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    When I arrived at Cort, I wasn't exactly sure I was in the right place. Give yourself some time to find it. After walking in, the receptionist had me fill out a short personality test and some minor paperwork. This took approximately 20-30 minutes. Take your time with the personality test, because you can't really make mistakes. Afterwards someone came out to get me and brought me back to the conference room. She began by telling me a little about the position. After a short while another person came into to also interview me. I thought both people were very nice and really enjoyed the interview. I felt both of them easy to talk to and enjoyed the experience.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't feel like any of the questions were difficult or unexpected. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that this company is owned by Warren Buffet.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    You will first be required to take an assessment test that will help determine if you fit for the position, personality wise. If they deem you a good fit, they will email you and ask for an interview. My first interview was great, I met with the DGM and TSM to talk a bit about the company and the position, then they will ask you a few general sales questions about how you handle difficult customers and sales tactics. After that, I went through about 5 more interviews over a 6 month period. I talked to everyone from the current rental consultants, to the retail sales team, to the sales training manager.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fairfax, VA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at CORT Business Services in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    I met with HR and answered some very standard questions such as why did you leave your last position. What are your strengths and weaknesses. The checked my references and did look at my credit report. I was then sent to the Department Head. The same wrote questions were asked. I got the feeling I was being hired more on the strength of my resume and my interviewing abilities. No job description was given.

    Interview Questions
    • There were none. They all seemed out of a text book   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Ask for the vacation time you want otherwise no matter what level you are entering the company at you will get the standard two weeks and they are unwilling to change that once you are hired. Don't ask for too much more than what you were being paid previously. The company is very stingy with salaries.
