B2B Outside Sales Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Monrovia, CA

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Staples in November 2013.

Interview Details

I applied online and received a call 2 days later from a person who sounded like an "irish woman stuck in a Mumbai brothel". I called her back and responded to the email request for an interview. I heard nothing after 2 days, so I called again finally reaching the in house recruiter. A time was set for a lengthy phone interview, and then after passing that had an in person interview with a manager who would be mine if I was accepted. After having a nice interviewing experience with that manager, I went on to speak with a different manager in the La Mirada facility. WOW! What a difference: she was late to the interview (20 minutes with no apology), already had an agenda from the get-go about busting my chops, spent WAY TO MUCH TIME on her own self-flattery (I wanted to ask, "so when are you going to become head of Staples Inc?"), never asked ONE question about me or my background, only asked questions like, "so what do you know about the job? anything else? anything else?...so what do you know about Staples? anything else? anything else?...so what do you know about the industry? anything else? anything else?", and lastly spent all of 14 minutes interviewing me!
Within 30 minutes of the completion of that last interview, I received an email from Staples saying, "thanks, but no thanks."
