Sales Operations Coordinator Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mercury Payment Systems (Durango, CO).
Interview process consisted of phone interview with recruiter, group/panel interview, and finally a submission of a basic Math test (un-timed and consisting mostly of multiple choice) and a 2 paragraph essay using Microsoft Word to demonstrate basic computer skills/knowledge and the ability to follow directions. The recruiter from Denver as well as the interviewers on the panel were all very friendly and relaxed which helps the interviewee feel more at ease. The phone interview is initiated first from the recruiter to determine if you are at least a potential fit for the company and worth continuing on in the process with. If selected to continue, a group/panel interview will be set up usually the following week sometime. The group/panel interview involved two sales managers from Mercury asking a series of questions in scenario type format and looking for examples from actual situations you have been involved in and how you reacted or responded. The phone interview contained a few of these type of questions as well. Each of the two interviews lasted about an hour each. Everyone was very professional in the process and although it does take time to get through the process, it never feels like they are "stringing you along" like with some processes I've been through that has taken similar time. The recruiter remained very accessible the entire time and was always very good about getting back to me with updates during the process whether it was by phone or email. One thing to remember, especially going for a Sales position is the importance of follow-up! Follow up via email after each interview via email with each person involved thanking them for their time and consideration and why you think you would be a good fit for the position! I cannot stress this enough! I even sent emails out to the interviewers the morning of the interview, hours before to thank them for the opportunity and let them know I was looking forward to today's interview at 2pm for example. This lets them know that this interview is at the top of your priority list and you are ready and thinking about it from the time you wake up! Doing this will also keep your name and eagerness fresh in the minds of everyone involved!
