Sales Assistant Interview

Sales Assistant

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at R.R. Donnelley.

Interview Details – I initially got the job through monster.com, but that was over 10 years ago, so I don't know how relevant my contribution will be. I do remember the process taking quite a while, maybe 6 weeks or more. The manager who hired me got caught up in a lot of corporate red tape to get everything approved.

Interview Question – Honestly I don't remember. It was very informal. I think it was just more back and forth chit chat to make sure I would fit in with the others in the office.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I remember they offered my a salary and I tried to negotiate for more. The manager said that if things worked out, we could take a look in six months and see about increasing my salary. Turns out, after six months I had a different manager, so that was out the window.
