Sales Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Lacey, WA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Scholastic Book Fairs (Lacey, WA).

Interview

the culture of the branch was odd. It appeared they only hire management that can mistreat employees and be "not present" and unaware of employees. When I was hired I was told I would not be laid off (stand-by) for the summer.However, I was. What they tell you at the time of the interview turns out to never be true. They tend to give as little information as possible and will say we will get more information later. Later never comes.

Interview Questions

  • Having Sales Manager ask us to help the General Manager because "his butt is on the line for not getting fair count". Odd since Sales Consultants are terminated for not obtaining their goals and the GM did not present himself to care about his employees.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Scholastic Book Fairs (Waco, TX) in June 2011.

    Interview

    They asked about a lot of "what would you do in this instance" questions. Basically, you will be calling on places to hold book fairs. I interviewed during the summer, and the office was VERY casual! Flip Flops, tshirts and hats. They said all that stops when school starts back and they have to go professional. Asked about sales experience, how I reached my goals, how I stayed organizied
