    Inside Sales Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Fort Mill, SC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Mill, SC
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Red Ventures.

    Interview Details

    Met recruiters on college campus, went out for drinks with them, got an invitation to apply. Applied and the whole process took a month and a half. There's a phone screening, phone interview (about ten/fifteen minutes), and if you get through that process you have to come to the main campus for an on-site interview which takes several hours. This interview includes a tour and presentation which are all meant to make the company and telemarketing seem like the most fun ever, then you have an interview with a performance manager who goes through a mock sales script with you and asks you to critique yourself, and then they 'coach' you. THEN you go listen to another sales agent's calls for an hour and this is meant to help you pick up technique and salesmanship skills. THEN you have another interview with a different PM who has notes from the previous interview, and you go through the mock script again. After that, you are returned to the tour guide who takes you through the rest of the campus, and told you will hear from someone in the next couple days. I received an email almost immediately after I left the premise, and was offered a job within several days.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview itself is very, very simple. The most difficult part is the mock sales script and role-playing, especially if you don't have any experience in sales (which I didn't).   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Can't really negotiate for the Inside Sales Position, they're very upfront about what you make. But there is room to make tons of money with the commission aspect... though, that also leaves room for improvement.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Mill, SC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Red Ventures in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume online and about two days later I received an e-mail stating that my resume was accepted. I then had to choose a date for a phone screen. I chose the earliest date for a phone screen which was 1 week later. I missed the recruiter's phone call, however they called me back and wanted to know if I was still interested, I told them yes. They asked me what I knew about the company and I explained what I had researched about them and how their company matches my previous experience. The recruiter didn't seem to care about my experiences. She briefly talked about the company and 3 minutes later she asked if I would be available for an in-person interview.The in-person interview lasted 3 hours. I was hired on the spot.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Red Ventures in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter and asked to complete a writing assignment. I got an interview and met with a recruiter and 5 other people in the digital marketing side of the company. The interview was conversational and took about 3 hours. They hardly asked me any questions and instead tried to get a feel for my personality. We also reviewed my writing assignment.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Red Ventures in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview which was brief, the representative didn't seem overly focused which was frusterating. I've heard of good experiences, it just seems to depend on who you are in contact with. Everyone was nice, but it seemed to be only surface deep.The person who conducted the interview was different than the person it was scheduled with, which was never really explained.

    Interview Questions
    • Many of the questions were a bit vague and open ended.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Mill, SC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Red Ventures in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    There were many people in the initial interview. You were required to prove your selling and closing skills on the spot. They definitely interview a lot of people and have a strong system for doing so. The hiring representatives were direct and to the point. During the interview it seemed like a very exciting environment.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked to sell a pen to one of the hiring representatives, which I wasn't exactly prepared for. There were rapid fire questions that I wasn't prepared for. Were I to do it again I would prepare my answers better in order to come across clearer.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Red Ventures in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone screening/interview by a recruiter in which basics of your work history will be covered but also expect fun behavioral/personality questions too. Potential candidates would be invited to the campus to tour the facilities, have short interview and role play session with a performance manager, buddy-jack with a veteran sales agent. Upon satisfaction, an offer will be made through phone by the recruiter. Process was fairly quick.
