Sales Manager Interview

Sales Manager
Milwaukee, WI

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Manpower in September 2011.

Interview Details – The process was grueling, I felt that the manager was inconvenienced by having to interview me, but every time I spoke to her for an interview she talked all about herself and I didn't get a word in edge wise it seemed. Then told the recruiter she felt I wasn't interested, the recruiter then coached me on how to ask for the job. At that point I realized I didn't even want it if I had to work with a woman like that.. Sounded like a churn and burn sales job that a recent college grad would be better suited for.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time that you had to overcome adversity (it's been a while but basically that was it)   Answer Question
