    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Hanson's in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviewing for a sales representative you will be called in to take an assessment at one of their computer terminals which will ask you a bunch of personality type questions. " What answer most describes you","what answer least describes you". Then you will take an IQ test which is under 20 questions and its basic math skills. After that you will be interviewed, if you have had good sales experience in the past or have extensive experience in the construction industry they will pretty much offer you a job on the spot and show you around the building. If you haven't had much sales experience they will want you to validate how you can be a fit for the position. The possibility to make over 100k a year is there. Most people will get discouraged though because it will take about a month or two to start seeing the money come in.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Hanson's in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Brought me into the interview room while 2 other salespersons hung out and chit chatted. Didn't ask me any probing questions. Anytime I tried to tell him about myself, he cut me off. Immediately began explaining the hours and compensation (speaking at break-neck speed). Instantly offered me a job without knowing anything about me.

    This place is clearly a meat grinder. They'll hire anyone willing to drive to appointments.

    Interview Details

    Sales manager was not untruthful about the position. I think he did not understand the training compensation as he was correcte by his supervisor on a second visit to the company offfice. Also, the first week you do not get paid at all and have to spend a week in a hotel with a roomate and attend class for 9 hours and they do not feed you.

    Field Sales Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Hanson's in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Worst interview ever. Wanted resume but said resumes were a bunch of B.S. Very unprofessional...even used the F word during it. Appears that they mass hire and see who sticks. Sales are independent contractors. They will give you draw pay but you have to pay it back if you do not stay 6 months. If sales are the heart of the business and these are their policies, it is shamefull. Anyone who is willing to drive 60 miles to their appointment, work crazy hours and pass the tests is hired and sent to training.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    I am a hard worker who expects respect. Anyone that goes on about the B.S. of a resume and uses a lot of profanity when interviewing certainly throws us a red flag. 1099 status shows they don't give a hoot about their field people.

    Don't Fall Into the Hype that you are going to make alot of money possible 6-figures is false. Expect only 20-30k. You will write many deals and the customer gets financed turned down because of credit so you make zero money and drive all over creation.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Hanson's in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    Hanson's had a "Job Fair" with about 30 potential employees. They asked the participants to break into 3 group depending on the job they wanted sales, canvassing or customer service. I went into sales and was given a personality test that I Was told "meant nothing" It does however; unless you score inspriational motivational or persuasive you are automatically not hired, this happened to one of the people in my group. After that I had an interview with the sales manager and was hired.
