Commission Sales Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee
Colorado Springs, CO

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Sears in August 2013.

Interview Details – I applied and about a month later I was called in for an informal interview. I got the position on spot.

Interview Question – The interview questions were straight forward. It was pretty much like all the other "how would you handle this situation" type of questions.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There wasn't much for negotiation. I wasn't really informed about how pay would be until after I was hired. It is a commission based pay so realistically, you make your pay check.

Interview Question – How far away do you live?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Don't take the offer. They lie.

Business Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Sears.

Interview Details – The interview was quick and very straight forward. There were two parts to the interview and I met with a different employee for each one: one case and one fit both lasting around the same time. The fit interview was basic - around six questions, all very standard. The case was not bad either.

Interview Question – Tell me about an experience that showed your integrity.   Answer Question
