    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CalFinder (Oakland, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty standard inside sales for a company that is growing. Why do you want to work here. Your experience with psychological selling. The managers do a really good job explaining the company. The high turnover. It takes a particular rep to succeed in this position, so you get grilled in the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CalFinder (Oakland, CA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I was hired by an utter moron. There were emails exchanged. The sales manager was very clearly not an intelligent person. They made the job sound like so much more than it was. They hyped it up. I just said, "yes, yes. That sounds good. Yes, yes. Sure. Absolutely." They just kept saying how great they were. Asked me a few questions like, what do you say if a customers wants this....? etc.

    • Do you mind making 200 calls a day?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Do not accept their first offer. Push for more. Believe me, they are giving you as low as they can. You can get more if you believe in yourself. But, don't work here anyway. This place is terrible.

    Inside Sales Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CalFinder (Oakland, CA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very amateur. Real dumb questions about selling. The funny thing is, the person doing the interview isn't even a good salesperson, so how could they recognize someone good if they see it. The questions were vague, dumb, pointless, and easy to give B.S. answers to.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you think you're good at sales?   1 Answer
    • Can you make over 100 calls a day?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Non-existant. Their salaries are fixed and are horrible. Lowest inside sales base salary around.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at CalFinder (Oakland, CA) in November 2010.

    Interview

    Very amateur. The hiring Manager was rude and asked ridiculous questions such as " How do I know you're a closer". I've been in professional sales for 7 years. This company hires sales reps, wants them to make 80-100 calls a day. Most burn out in the first month, and then they just bring the next group in to burn through.
