Sales Representative Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at SMC Corporation in February 2015.

Interview Details

Submitted resume through their website and got a call in a few days which I missed. Spent over a week trying to get back in touch with them while they weren't returning my calls. Finally about two weeks later I received a call apologizing for not getting back to me but they wanted to set up an interview in the next week. Interview was structured with most of the focus being on the details of my resume. Asked standard canned questions when the person appeared to get irritated with my response and slammed his folder shut. Had a great second interview with the branch manager with all of the same questions. The communication from the beginning was spotty and sometimes felt border line unprofessional. Given my experience I would not have pursued this opportunity.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SMC Corporation in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview was with local sales manager over the phone. We just talked about the position and if there was any interest. Then a week later the next interview was in person with both the local sales manager over and his boss, the branch manager. During this interview we discussed my current position, my territory and compensation plan at great length - at least four hours. Then after another week the branch manager and I meet in person and he made a formal offer pending I pass a drug test along with a background and driving review. I accepted and started the process for the drug test and reviews which took a few more weeks. Then I was approved and started working.
