    Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Liverpool, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Liverpool, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Phones 4u in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    First step was sending in a CV, then I had a telephone interview. This was informal and was more like 2 old friends catching up. Then I was invited to a face-to-face interview with my GSM. He brought along his DM to witness the interview.

    Before I could start I had to wait for a credit check to be completed and then I had to prove any outstanding debts had arrangements in place to pay.

    Interview Questions
    • The only thing to happen that was unexpected was that the interview was a stereotypical job interview "tell me about your previous job" "why did you leave" etc.

      I was asked to talk about a passion of mine though. After being hired I was told that the answer didn't matter and that it was asked to see if I could sound interested in something to see if I could do that when selling phones.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Phones 4u in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I've received an e-mail informing that i would get a call to arrange a phone interview. Someone called me and we've scheduled the interview for some days later in the morning. Everything was a bit unexpected as soon as i've understood that the person that was calling me didn't even looked at my CV. It was the tiniest interview in the most impersonal way.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were basically, if i thought i had the skills, why i've applied, what i thought about sales. 5 minutes and that was it.   Answer Question
