Interview Details – Submited resume online. Had 1 phone and 1 face to face interview. Was hired the next day.

Interview Details – I replied to a Monster posting. They took my application and set me up with a phone screen that lasted about 15 min. From there, I had a phone interview with the Training Manager that lasted roughly 45 min. I then did an in-person interview with that manager and another manager within the company. This last just over an hour, and they made an offer that same afternoon.
Interview Question – Questions were pretty standard. Perhaps the hardest thing they asked me was to list 3 adjectives that former clients would use to describe me, or the one skill that is most important to a salesperson. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – No sure about the direction and culture of the company.

Interview Question – How do you feel about cold calling? View Answer
Negotiation Details – Nothing, I wish now I didn't accept though. Waste of time.

Interview Details – I had some difficulty contacting the outside company they use to hire. The interview went longer than they originally planned, but the conversation with upper management was friendly and engaging. I had absolutely no problems with the interview and the company representatives conducting it. They were very quick to respond to me (within 20 minutes of my depature) to let me know I had the job. However, it was another lengthy process to get paperwork squared away with outside hiring company
Interview Question – There actually weren't any unexpected or difficult questions. It was a fairly standard sales interview, asking about previous sales experience and how I would go about selling their product. They did ask to know what I believe are some of my flaws, so be ready to answer that type of question. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They would not allow for negotiations
I interviewed at Supermedia in November 2008.
Interview Details – It was a pretty comprehensive interview process. It was 2 rounds, starting with an interview with a sales manager(s). The first phase consisted of about an hour of typical interview questions. If you passed that round, you were offered a sales role-play. References were typically checked after that. It was a thorough, yet fair interview process.
Interview Question – The whole point of the interviews was to have the candidate share SPECIFIC examples (names, dates, numbers, etc). This is where people typically goofed up---they would reply "well what I usually did was..." NOPE! Tell specific things that you did, and you'll do well. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Supermedia in October 2008.
Interview Details – I was hired in 2008, however things have definitely changed since then. I was hired by a young 20 something manager, who knew who what he was looking for. He was looking for someone who knew rejection was coming, who could successfully overcome objections and try to provide a solution.
The process however is very fast. You will speak with a sales manager or two, you will tell them about your experience, you will role play in the interview pretending to sell/consult, and if you are liked they were hire you on the spot pending background checks.
Interview Question – Why do businesses need to advertise? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Typically there isn't much room for negotiation unless you come in with exactly the type of experience they are looking for. Base salary will be anywhere between $30k and $35k
Very Difficult Interview
I applied through other source and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Supermedia in March 2008.
Interview Details – At the time it was a difficult and stressful hiring process. Multiple interviews, role playing, etc. Needed to have college degree, and be on the top of your game. Now I believe it is much easier to get in. Therefore quality of people hired has declined.
Interview Question – After you presented your entire recommendation during role play that took hours, one of the trainers told you how bad it was and you had to react professionally in a calm, assertive way, to overcome the objection. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Fairly straightforward. They low balled the expectations which I think was good at the time, but was still much more than I was making at the time.
Pros: “Great health benefits, great reimbursements, amazing co-workers, job is easy if you work hard, and put in a solid 40+ hours a week.” “Great health benefits, great reimbursements, amazing co-workers, job is easy if you work hard, and put in a solid 40+ hours a week.” – Full Review
