RSR Interview

RSR
Fremont, CA

I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Schwan's Home Service.

Interview Details – Standard interview about customer service and expectations of providing service to customers. Learning the products, pricing and territory easy. Ability to learn the truck, delivery and customer service left to other senior rsr's.

Interview Question – Later, learned that the RSR handheld was 1980's equivalent. Also, GM had poor opinion on several customers in territory and was very bigoted and derogatory to supporting or helping customers with problems leaving me in a problem solving position.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation provided or countered

Territory Sales Leader Interview

Territory Sales Leader
Phoenix, AZ

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Schwan's Home Service in January 2010.

Interview Details – I was promoted from within 6 months after I started. You are paid more if hired from the outside. The hiring questions are the typical behavior interview questions. The process will involve Human Resoures, District manager and Vice President in charge of that portion of the country.

Interview Question – VP asked me if I were to talk with your past co workers, what would they say was your weeknees. Hard to answer when your trying to look good.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Internal hire, not much. Here is your wage.

Interview Details – It was joke. No one knows what to ask. They had some paperwork and asked random template questions. Like what experience do you have. The rest was bragging about their company and their food and all was a big lie.
