Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative
Shawnee, KS

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Harte Hanks in August 2013.

Interview Details – I emailed my resume to a recruiter who contacted me and did a phone interview. I then did a 1-on-1 interview with a supervisor at the company. I was surprised that the interviewer did not know what hours or how many months I would be working, but I also did not realize at the time that the company does work for multiple clients.

Interview Question – Are you willing to work any given hours?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiating. Advice to others is to understand that you must be flexible and willing to work any possible day of the week and any hours. The hours and days will not necessarily be the same from one week, or even day,.to the next.
