Direct Sales Representative Interview

Interview Details

The interview process was done through a recruiting firm out of Phoenix. The call was made the day after I submitted my application online. They had me do an online assessment/. I received a call the next day and had a phone interview. The process was pretty quick. However, I did not get the offer right away and I thought I had lost the opportunity. I had a pretty good interview with the Sales Supervisor as well as the Area Manager. But they had just taken a while to get around to sending the information to the recruiting firm. Once I got the offer, everything went smoothly from there.

Interview Questions
  • There were really no difficult questions. The interviewer just asked the same regular questions. However, they did stress the importance of the job and what it entailed.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Comcast in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by Manpower and asked a series of questions pertaining to working door to door sales. When I saw that this was a perfect fit for me, I had the recruiter send me the online test to see if I had a sales aptitude. When I passed that I was given an interview date, which went well because I already do door to door sales.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Comcast in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was painfully slow (28 days before I started training) and very in depth. But well worth it! Prepare to jump through hoops you have never had to before, but remember they are looking for only the very best and brightest candidates!

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Comcast in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for Comcast back in June 2013 and I received a a phone call two days later from a recruiter who gave me information about the position and asked if I had any questions about the position, which I did. He answered them very professionally and completely which made me excited to get to the next step. He then requested that took an assessment which he emailed immediately after our phone call and I took it that night. It only took about 45 minutes and I emailed him when I was complete to let him know. He emailed me back within 15 minutes to let me know that I did great and said he would contact me the next business day. He contacted me the next business day and invited me to a General Information session held at one of the local offices close to me and I was happy to attend. They held the GIS once per month and I was just in time to make the next one. Due to some unforseen circumstances I emailed him prior to the event to let him know I would be out of town and could not make it and he was very understanding and asked me to contact him when I could. Due to being out of town for over 3 months I ended up not being able to attend the session until November of 2013 however the recruiter stayed in contact with me every month which I thought was great! It made me feel like I was wanted and that this company was serious about having great employees joining. So when I finally was able to attend the GIS in November it was about 20 people and we were at one of the local offices and about 5 managers from the different sales areas were there to answer all of our questions. At the end of the general overview of the position where they briefly went over benefits and a look at the day to day operations of a Direct Sales Representative we were given the opportunity to interview with one of the managers. Although I was very nervous I was actually more excited to interview being that I got all of my questions answered during the first part of the presentation. Since I have done door to door sales I know that it can seem intimidating at first however once you get out there and show your beautiful personality, it's actually a very fulfilling job, I was ready to interview and start the position. My interview lasted about an hour and it was with one of the managers. He was very polite and very realistic about the companys' expectations, which I appreciated. He let me know that I would be contacted by a recruiter once they had a decision to let me know of the next step. I left the GIS very excited and eager to hear back. About 4 days later I received an email letting me to know to reapply to a different requisition number and at first I was nervous because I thought that I did not get the position and that it was just an email to see if I wanted to reapply in the future however I applied to the wrong office initially so they wanted me to just do the right one. Once I completed I replied back to the recruiter who sent me the link and she immediately called me and said "Congratulations we want to move you forward in the process and we will be sending you a preliminary offer letter and you will receive the official offer letter once the background check and drug screen is complete." I was elated!!! Next I was to expect an email from a company called Carco about a drug screening and a background check. I had to complete my drug test within 48 hours and also complete my background information on the link within 48 hours. I received the link the following day from the company and I immediately scheduled my drug test at a location that was close to me to do the E-Screen. There were a plethora of locations so I picked the one closest to me and completed the test the next day. I also filled out my background information for Carco as well. The next day I received an email from Carco instructing me to fax or email a copy of my high school diploma to expedite the process, which I immediately did. That was about 7 days ago and now I am just waiting to hear back to see when I will begin my position. I am very eager to start and I have just been researching the company online and getting different reviews from other associates however I know that the only way I am going to really get an inside view of how the job is, is to just get out there and do it! Good luck to everyone else who is in the same process! I have heard MANY great things about this company from people who work there and I will keep you updated as much as I can!

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Comcast in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Completed application online. The next day, I received a call from a hiring recruiter in Michigan who conducted a phone interview with me, asked me if I would like to move forward. I told her yes, she then sent me an invitation to complete an Assessment Test, which I completed immediately. The next day, I received another call from the same recruiter advising me I did very well on the assessment and at that time they extended me a "Contingent" offer which I accepted. I then completed the background check information request and drug testing. During this phase, I was in constant communication with another person from the same office as the recruiter. The background check takes the longest. It took approximately 2 weeks for it to be completed. After that was finished, and cleared, I received my official offer letter, which I accepted. Both of the people I dealt with were very nice, professional and helpful.
