    Sales Representative Interview

    Interview Details

    Wow. What can I say about this interview process? Well for starters, I had a very easy phone interview. I applied for the position online and then within 2 hours I received a phone call from them. I then had an in-person interview at their "office" which was really intense. I was interviewed by three different people and then sat down with one of their sales representatives to discuss the position. I was asked to come back for the final interview but I had to first prepare a PowerPoint about Signpost products which I had to sell to the manager. They told me they would contact me later that day about whether I got the position but they never contacted me. This company is EXTREMELY unprofessional. After going through three interviews and giving a PowerPoint presentation, the least they could do is call me.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Signpost .

    Interview Details

    The process was pretty simple. I received a call from a recruiting manager who pretty much asked me the basic questions ( why do you want to work in sales, why signpost&I and all the other typical sales questions). After the screening process, I was brought into the office for a face to face interview with a recruiting manager, sales manager and sat down with one of the sales representatives to see what exactly they do. I already knew i wasn't a right fit from the moment I walked. Everyone was dressed extremely casual while I wore business casual clothing. Secondly, as I was going over my resume, the recruiter (Lior) stopped me before I even finished and said " I was too corporate for the position" even though I told her I'm open to different opportunities. After grilling me on why I want to do sales, what motivates me, and why signpost a million times, she still continued to put down my ability to work there even though my answers were "spot on" and "exactly what she would say". She couldn't look past my endeavors in the corporate and financial industry and therefore felt I wouldn't be a fit in their young, lax environment. The interview with the sales manager which pretty much the same but she was open to hear what I had today. Overall, it wasn't a great interview experience.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Signpost in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for a different position but was contacted by the sales team hiring manager to ask if I would like to come in for an interview for a position on the sales team. I asked about horizontal movement throughout the company once hired and received a few vague responses. The main focus of the interviewers questions revolved around the ability to close the sale and accept rejection. This was followed by sitting in on a few calls with a top earning Associate.

    Reasons for Declining

    Was not excited about cold pitching and hard closing expectations. I was looking for existing client sales and customer service. No customer relationship building in this position. Seemed like a cool and fun company to work for.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Signpost in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very simple phone and in person interview. It took a while to get set up because the managers did not seem to communicate. I may be overthinking this, but they seemed surprised when I showed up for my scheduled interivew.

    I applied online. The process took 6 days - interviewed at Signpost in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my application online and was contacted by email to schedule a phone interview. After speaking with someone about my experience and qualifications, I was contacted again to schedule an interview in the Denver office. I immediately felt overdressed when I walked into the office, as the relatively casual office environment left me sticking out like a sore thumb in my suit. A couple of the managers in the office took turns speaking with me, and I then sat at the desk with a sales rep to get a feel for being on the phones and what the work entails. I was then given the opportunity to ask the rep some questions without management present, which helped give me a feel for the various pros/cons of working here. I was contacted again following this interview and asked to put together a presentation. This involved researching the Signpost platform and presenting over the phone to a manager as well as the VP of Revenue as they pretended to own a struggling gym in need of our services. Following this screen-share phone presentation, I was contacted within an hour with an offer.

    No negotiation. Standard $20k base salary is rather meager, but uncapped commission makes it hard to negotiate.
