    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Milwaukee, WI
    Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. 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.

    Back and forth a few times. Got $2,500 more than initial base salary offer, with a large bonus potential. Bonus was never realized ($0). Process took over 4 months...ridiculous. Also, no formal 1:1 onboarding. In hindsight, I would have never accepted this offer.

    Sales professionals that are applying with Manpower must be prepared to pass a timed Wonderlic test and you must pass in order to move forward to the first interview. If you've never taken the Wonderlic be sure to look it up and practice.

    Interview Questions
    • If you do not understand a question do not guess! Ask the interviewer to please "clarify". I know this sounds like common sense but the interviewers are looking to see if you will ask for more clarification in order to answer correctly or simply ramble on and talk from your rear end.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Manpower in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process was very lengthy but the company truly tries to match the best qualified candidate to the position. First, i interviewed with a company recruiter after I placed my resume online with resume rabbit. i received a one line questions asking if I was interested in a Branch Manager position? I responded yes. I did well with the first two interviews with the company recruiters and took an online examination. From there, I had a behavioral interview with another HR person. From there, I interviewd with the Regional Manager and another Branch manager at the same time. The process then proceeded to the EVP of Sales for the whole country. This last interview was by telephone. I was offered the position one week later.
