SALES ASSOCIATE BILINGUAL Interview

SALES ASSOCIATE BILINGUAL
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Rent-A-Center in September 2013.

Interview Details – they emailed me first so I could set up a phone interview at my most convenient time. He explained to me that they do a background check, if you have any items from them (RAC) you have to return them or pay the full amount due or you wont get hired, you do need a valid drivers licence, and you have to do deliveries depending on it, also you have to do "collections" when needed. they offered me 10.25.

Interview Question – Nothing difficult, why do you want to work for RAC? why did you leave your past job? what are your strengths and weaknesses?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – 10.25 for pay. but POSSIBLY could get a raise after 4 months of working there.

Sales Assistant Interview

Sales Assistant

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Rent-A-Center in May 2011.

Interview Details – Called me in and I had another interview that day, Manager latter told me if I hadn't agreed to his desired time he would have never called me back. Showed up to interview was very short, asked me to speak in spanish we discussed past experience and how flexible my schedule was, they need you to be open because they will not accommodate to school or other
personal problems. Bottom line They want you to be willing to sale, look intimidating to run(collect) on customers who don't pay but be friendly enough to move merchandise.

Interview Question – Nothing was to challenging about the interview   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiating wage options
