Sales Representative Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kimball Midwest (Chicago, IL) in December 2010.
The process started with a phone call from the sales recruiter, and she was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the position and expectations. We talked about my background, what I'm looking for in a new opportunity, and she answered most of the questions I had about the process and the position. She submitted my information to the manager, and I had a great phone conversation with him. We met in person, and we talked about my experiences and how that would mesh with Kimball Midwest. From there I went on a ride along, known as a JOT (Job Observation Tour) with an area trainer. It gave me a great view of what it would be like out in the field, and I was even more excited! Since they custom design the compensation packages for each person, they developed an offer for me and he presented it. I accepted and have been very happy and have seen outstanding successes in the time I've been with Kimball. I feel I have a career, and they truly appreciate my efforts.

They base your compensation on what you've done in the past, to make sure you're whole. It is amazing that a company provides this type of pay structure to complement my training program.

The company does not negotiate with nobody so it is what is offered or no position. Ask everything about the position first,start up fees,hours,pay,benifits and manager support.

The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kimball Midwest in February 2009.
I interviewed by phone with a corporate recruiter, than spoke to a Manager the same week. Setup a face to face interview for the following Tuesday. They do want to make sure that they are making the right hire so, I got to ride with one of the current reps and see what it would be like. I then meet with the Manager again face to face to recieve and accept the offer. My whole process took less then 1 mth to complete and I knew exactly what the job entailed and what to expect.

I was able to negotiate the entire package. They are very flexible and customize the offers to the individual
