    Entry-level Sales Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Impact Networking (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    First, I went in and met a main sales director, who was very nice. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and attitude everyone had. After I spoke with him for a bit, I then interviewed with a higher director. Once I finished that interview, which went really well, I was scheduled to take a ride day. This is where you realize what kind of work you are about to get into. It is clear that the entry-level sales reps are working like dogs day in and day out, going physically from door to door in various territories throughout the city. They told me to just go sell the product to random businesses, but I clearly had no idea what they were actually selling so I couldn't answer any of their questions. The ride day is all day long so come prepared drive viciously around a city and persuade people. I don't think this job would be a bad job- if they were paid higher. A great learning experience, however it doesn't seem the compensation really aligned with the work load. They work from about 8 to 6 every day or longer. Intense culture, which I don't mind. But it is not as it appears in the first interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Impact Networking (Madison, WI) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I met Impact at a college job fair and they offered to interview me the next day. After a brief interview, they invite you out for a "ride day" where you will shadow a sales rep and see firsthand what a day in the life of a salesperson is like. You'll get a pretty good idea whether or not you're cut out for sales by the end of the day, at which point you could accept or decline the position.

    Interview Questions

    • There are not difficult questions. It's about showing you have what it takes to be in sales. If you want to impress, lead as many cold calls as possible on that first ride day.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Sales is not for everyone. Not many people are able to succeed in the industry, and those that do must put in several years before they really start seeing the money come in. The reality is, if you aren't 100% into it you should really consider another line of work.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Impact Networking in February 2013.

    Interview

    I had a first interview with the job recruiter and was asked many questions about why I would be a good fit and how I handle rejection. The interview was semi formal and the recruiter kept things light and made sure I understood what I would be doing for the position. It was very informative and he asked questions to see if you are able to think on your feet and if you can learn from your mistakes which is what makes a good salesman. The Job is difficult. It is high risk high reward and it does not have instant gratification. If you are willing to put the time and hard work, it will all pay off. Not a job for everyone but this is the best stepping stone into any sales position.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Impact Networking (Brookfield, WI) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Well it was conducted like an interview should be and better. Submitted my resume, and within 2 hours of that I got an email from HR asking if i wanted an interview, respectfully I accepted and set it up for the next day. Went in and waited for the last interviewer to finish. The guy they told me I was going to interview with was the person I had. Asked me standard and job related questions. Told me he would get back to me withing a week if he was interested for a second interview to meet with the Service Manager. The next day the service manager called and ask if i wanted a second interview. The service manager was very straight forward about the job what it involves and didn't leave important information out. Told me he would get back to me in about a week or so to let me know if he was interested. Within 4 or less days he called back and asked if i wanted the job. Gave my last job two weeks notice and now here I am working for what I see is a growing and great company to work for.

    I did not have any ability to negotiate I have no experience with the specific equipment they work with. This was an ENTRY LEVEL JOB, there is no negotiating. If you had prior work experience in this field of work I would see them working with you on any negotiations.

    Sales Consultant Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Impact Networking (Waukegan, IL) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I found Impact Networking at Purdue University's Spring Career Fair. I attended an informational session first, then had an interview the next day, at Purdue. The first interview I didn't do too much preparing, other than a little company research and reviewing my notes from the info session. A little less than a week later I got invited back for a second round interview at the corporate headquarters in Waukegan, IL. I was so excited, I reviewed two interview books I had recently picked up, did a lot of research and practice, and also contacted one of the managers who had first interviewed me for some helpful tips for the second interview. I must have worked for three days straight going over tough questions, and also thinking of good questions to ask in return. There was a Technology show a few days before my interview I decided to attend to get a better idea of all the different services etc., where I ended up meeting most of the sales reps from the Waukegan office, and also the Sales Manager (who was going to be interviewing me). Even though I didn't know everything, I felt like this sounded like a really cool company that I definitely wanted to work for. Anyways, went to the interview a few days later, it ended up being really easy, probably for a couple reasons (I spent so much time preparing, and also I had already met my interviewee, so it wasn't so scary), and I ended up liking Impact even more. The final step of the interview process was a Ride Day - where I shadowed one of the other sales reps for a whole day, and got some actual hands on experience out in the field working with customers. I loved it! I got the job, and have been so happy here ever since.

    Negotiation

    I didn't do too much negotiating, since this was my first job out of college, but everything seemed pretty generous for my position, with endless opportunities. I wouldn't really recommend negotiating too much if you're fresh out of school, but there's a lot of room for rapid growth and promotion, as long as you put in the work! TAKE THE JOB!
