Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Sprint.

Interview

Wait with customers while the manager gets a chance to do the interview. Might be a few minutes even if you arrive on time. You get taken to the manager's office. Aside from previous job experience, they really just want to see if you're confident and outgoing enough to convince people to buy things they don't need.

    Applied for position and completed assessment. Received a call a week later to come in for an interview. Interview was very easy and laid back. I was asked STAR based interview questions. Was given a paper which had 3 plans. Had to memorize the plans available and sell my cellphone to the interviewer. Was told I'll know if I will be offered a position or not in about a week. Was offered a position 4 business days later. Waiting to complete my drug test and background check. After that I'll be informed of start date, compensation etc.

    Interview

    Interview was first conducted then background check was the next process after the agreement was reached. HR can take a about month before background results comeback. Just really try to check up on the managers because the can get busy with their everyday lives and have a tendency to forget.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sprint (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process although kind of lengthy, was well worth it. Unlike many of the other reviews i see on here i only had 1 in person interview. My whole process from start to finish went as such; I was called by a recruiting agent who did a brief over the phone assessment of me, getting a feel of my interest in the company, and asked me a few questions about my prior work experience. I was scheduled for my in person Interview on July 8th, 2015. The interview consisted of two parts, a role playing exercise where i had to sell the interviewee a phone, and the actual interview where she asked my availability, why sprint, name a time i diffused a mad customer etc. At the end of the interview she explained i would be hearing back from her sometime in the next week. Wednesday July 15th i received an email from sprint telling me about the next step in the selection process the drug screen, and background screening( i never actually got a call back from her, from that point on it was emails from HR) i completed both the drug and background that same day. Yesterday July 20th i received a call from the HR manager telling me my drug test came back clean and that they were waiting on the results from my background. She gave me a contingent offer, and stated that once the background came back i would get my official offer letter. She went over pay($12.00/hour +commission), she went over the location i would be placed at since i applied to more than one location, and she told me i would begin training on August 17th. Now i am just waiting to start :) hope that helped someone.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sprint (Columbia, MD) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I was referred through a friend so I went in for my interview. I was called to meet with the store manager. I dressed the part, wearing a suit to the interview. I was asked for my resume on hand which I had, I was then brought into the interview room. The store manager asked me about myself, why sales, and why I see myself succeeding in sales. She then asked me to sell a product that was sitting in the room. I studied the product and then sold it to her and her assistant manager. They had me fill out an online application and then contacted me via email 5 days later.

    Interview

    Applied online through Monster, got a call a week later. One interview with store manager, lasted 30 minutes, offered job the same day. Just smile and talk about how much you love sales while not being an idiot and they'll love you. Mentioned how I love working with people (which I did at the time) and how customer service is a priority to me, but not to the extent it will interfere with my sales. Mention how motivated you are to make money as well, because that is all they care about in the long run.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sprint (Richmond, VA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Shortly after applying for the position I was given a phone call to schedule a phone interview. I scheduled the interview for the next day and the interview lasted about half an hour. All the questions were very general and mostly consisted of questions about the job interest and about myself. Half of the time spent on the phone was being told about the position, perks, benefits, and training.
