    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Very simple process. First you are given a 5 minute phone interview (easy, I think they just want to make sure you know how to speak) then you are given a 30 minute phone interview that dives into some of your previous work experience. After that I was called onsite for about a three-and-a-half hour day of tours, meeting people and listening in on sales calls.

    Im not really sure why people say the company tries to disguise that this is phone sales. They definitely dont. It's out in the open. But I think they approach the monotony of sales in a very unique way with incentives, prizes, etc.

    You have to do a mock script of a sales call--once again, very easy.

    Inside Sales Agent Interview

    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.

    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.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Red Ventures.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is intense, but it is effective at identifying talented people. There are usually multiple phone interviews and an extensive on-site interview that lasts several hours. The on-site interview consists of multiple skill interviews for technical knowledge, followed by several business team member interviews that help determine if you would be a good fit for the RV culture.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Red Ventures.

    Interview Details

    It was a phone interview for no more than 4 minutes. I was asked how did I here about the company? Would I be opening to there late hour shifts? I don't understand how are they able to find a potential candidate for the position if the interview is only 4 minutes long. Truly I don't understand what I didn't get consider the position I answer the question with ease and the potential answers they wanted to hear.

    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.

    Interview Details

    I was in contact with one woman throughout the process, which made it easy to reach out and check in when I had questions. I had two phone interviews: one behavioral, one case. Then I drove down for an in-person final round interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The last interview is a case with an excel spreadsheet that you get 45 minutes to work on. The most difficult question was answering why I ranked the options the way that I did. For this company, base all decisions on the numbers.   Answer Question
