Easy Interview

Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative
Richmond, VA

I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance in June 2010.

Interview Details – Initially attended local job fair. Then applied through the website. Interview was fairly easy as they were looking to grow their sales team quickly. They are very willing to give those with no sales experience a chance. Although they say it's a 9-5 job, there are many hours spent cold calling during the evening and on holidays. Just be prepared!

Interview Question – Why does insurance sales interest you?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was a base pay of 40,000. However, about a year in, they changed the plan to be a $20,000 base, which is hard if you're having an off month. They could have changed this since then! I believe the economy had a lot to do with it.

Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative
Rutland, VT

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance in December 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online, I was contacted via e-mail to set up a phone interview. The phone interview is pretty standard, they ask about your experience and why you are interested in their company. This is most likely a way for them to weed out people who know nothing.

I then had an interview with a regional manager. I was asked all about my experience and how it relates to the job. I was asked about their company, and invited in for another interview but this time I had an "assignment." I was asked to write up a presentation on how I would go about collecting a book of business and making sales. They basically want you to sell to your friends and family, get referrals, etc.

Interview Question – What was the biggest mistake you've made, and what did you learn from it?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I did not want to sell to my friends and family.

Sales Representative

Interviewed at Liberty Mutual Insurance

Interview Details – First interview was phone by recruiter, nothing special, but obviously just weeding out those not right for the role. Follow-up phone, then in-person with hiring manager. Process was typical for large company.

Interview Question – I was asked to tell a joke. This caught me off guard. I believe the idea was to see how I could 'think on my feet.'   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, they have a standard package.
