Sales Counselor Interview

Sales Counselor

Interviewed at P.C. Richard & Son

Interview Details – I filled out an application in the store and received a call from the main headquarters for an interview. I met with their senior sales trainer who greeted me, told me about the hours, weekends, training, etc. Then he asked me a bunch of questions about myself and what my goals were, and why I wanted to work for the company. After I answered his questions, he told me all about the company and the job. He was passionate about the company, enthusiastic, and very thorough. After I met with him, I did a quiz, then met with another trainer who asked similar questions and was equally enthusiastic. A few days later I got the call to be hired and they made me feel great!

Interview Question – It was a pretty straightforward interview   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Draw vs. commission was standard. No negotiation because they explained to me that I write my own paycheck.
