BDM-entry Inside Sales-agent Interview

Anonymous Employee
Bellevue, WA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Efinancial in January 2013.

Interview Details – Interviewed via the phone with an HR rep. Next-interviewed via the phone with a sales manager. Last-interviewed onsite with two sales managers and the HR rep. Three days after the interview, I was offered the position.

Interview Question – Why Efinanical? You have alot of sales experience-so why do you want to work for Efinancial?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – You have to start in the entry inside sales position and earn a promotion to become an agent. So there is no negotiation on the starting salary. The agents do make decent money however and the leads are very warm, so it is worth the effort to earn a promotion. The company is growing and provides a great opportunity; especially with a still difficult economy.

Insurance Account Executive Interview

Insurance Account Executive
Chicago, IL

I applied through other source and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Efinancial in April 2012.

Interview Details – Found the job posted on glassdoor.com and applied. I received a phone call the following day that consisted of a 15 minute phone screen. At the end of the phone screen I was asked to come into the office the next day for two interviews with two different managers. Less than 30 minutes after leaving the interviews I was called again to be asked back in as soon as possible. When I came in the third time I interviewed with 'The Boss' as everyone called him and the person who trains newbie's. I was called less than an hour later with a job offer. I'm deciding whether or not to take this position this weekend since I got a few offers at once.

The office is clean, well lit, and very festive. The questions were mostly behavioral but also included hypothetical questions and the standard 'why should we hire you... why do you want to work here' stuff.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiating. There is a base and a commission/bonus structure in place. If you want to make more money then you work faster. It doesn't get easier than that.

Difficult Interview

Account Executive Interview

Account Executive
Bellevue, WA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Efinancial in January 2012.

Interview Details – Contacted by recruiter who saw my resume online; easy phone interview; filled out application and completed 2-3 hr long online personality test. Met with 3 managers and the president over 3 office visits. Typical sales and background questions. Also, did a job shadow. (job seemed incredibly easy). 5 total interviews; 3 total office visits; 0 job offers; 0 explanations as to why I wasn't selected. My impression is that Efinancial is looking for Sales Reps with a very specific personality type. Your past sales experience almost doesn't matter.

Interview Question – Why should I hire you instead of all the other applicants?   Answer Question
