Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative
New York, NY

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

Interview Details – First there is a phone interview as a means for pre-qualifying candidates and asking about any glaring issues in their resume/ application. Next is an in-office interview with a recruiter, 2 sales managers, and the sales director. Lastly there is a demonstration of your knowledge of the platform over the phone using Powerpoint and Join.me

Interview Question – Why do you want a career in sales? This is difficult because very rarely do people actually want to pursue a career in sales. More often than not they want to use it as a stepping stone to a different career.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation because they do allow for an uncapped commission.

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.

Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative
Denver, CO

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – Sell me this pen.   View Answer

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