Sales Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Nishimoto Trading in October 2011.
Interview Details – I was contacted by the recruiter. He went through some basics about the position and the interview process.
Later that week, I got the phone interview from California. It was pretty straight-forward, involving general questions like: why chose this position, what's important for sales, and past work experience.
I went for the on-site interview the week after. It was even simpler than the phone interview. All they basically asked was "tell me about your education and work experience".
Didn't get the job, since I had limited experience in sales.
