    Interview

    the interview process is pretty basic for a sales rep. They'll just put you in a bunch of different scenarios to see how you react. I think I had 3 different interviews with 3 different managers. They all asked different questions. All questions are really just to see what kind of character you have and if you're able to handle the pressure of being out there on your own.

    Submitted online application, which included salary requirements. Was contacted two days later for phone screening. Basic questions about previous experience.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Nestlé (Frankfurt am Main (Germany)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Nach Zusendung meiner Bewerbungsunterlagen bekam ich innerhalb weniger Tage eine Einladung zu einem Telefoninterview. 15 Minuten nach dem vereinbarten Termin erhielt ich den erwarteten Anruf. Das Gespräch selbst führte ein Personaler und ließ sich meinen Lebenslauf mit den verschiedenen Stationen erläutern. Nebenbei notierte er sich den ein oder anderen Kommentar zu besonderen, fachlichen Eckpunkten u.a. Durch weitere Rückfragen konnte ich herausfinden, dass -entgegen der Stellenausschreibung- der angegebene Standort nur temporär zu besetzen sein sollte und man nach einer gewissen Zeit einsatzbereit in ganz Deutschland sein solle. Eine weitere Rückmeldung zum Gespräch erhielt ich innerhalb der nächsten Arbeitswoche.

    Interview Questions

    • Keine schwierigen oder unerwarteten Fragen. Lediglich meine konkreten Rückfragen zum Stellenangebot schienen dem Personaler unerwartet.   Answer Question
