Inside Sales Interview

Anonymous Employee in Gilbert, AZ
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Public Storage (Gilbert, AZ) in August 2010.

Interview

They start off with a phone call to see if you will accept the duties of the position. Basically you say "YES" to all questions just to get to the next step. Just the fact that you received a call, says they are interested and will put you on the list to schedule an interview. The interview is called the "Round Robin" for all you call center people, which I have done briefly, but had the invironment, but of course, we all need a job, right?

The questions are basic, why should we hire you? what problems did you solve, how did you do it, and what was the outcome. Pretty basic. Then they ask you for questions which you better have already because this is where it get's strange. The days off, the schedule, your first time duties are all vague. See below

Reasons for Declining

They call it a sales position @ 13 per hour, then after training you get 15. Then they hit you with your duties. No commission for 2 months, which after you accept the position, they switch your sales position into a telemarketing job calling old customers with a time frame of 3-6 months. Then and only then, you join the rest of the sales people, and get to possibly make commission based on the usual call center matric nonsense and who takes storage space.

NOTE. Days off are split, new commers WILL WORK NIGHTS TILL 11PM, you will work saturdays, they only pay 3 holidays, and your first 3-6 months will be on a dialler in a different room from the other morons that took that sad position.

My advice?

DONT DO IT UNLESS YOU ARE DESPERATE, THEN KEEP LOOKING FOR A "REAL" SALES POSITION.
