Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through other source and interviewed at TRADER Corporation.

Interview Details – Applied online and networked. Once the process started, things moved quickly. There was an HR telephone interview followed by an in person interview with the hiring manager, followed by an interview with the next level up, and offer. Everything closed in 3 weeks.

Interview Question – The in person interviews were a little different than at other companies in that they attack your resume. It caught me off guard in the first interview because I thought I said something that offend the hiring manager. When it happened again in the second interview, I just interpreted it as their standard process for interviewing candidates. Once you get through the tough questions, things go back to a more standard interview format.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was some room for negotiations. I think that they start with a number slightly below the market rate. I countered with what I researched to be the market rate and they were accommodating.

Inside Sales Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Etobicoke, ON (Canada)

The process took 1+ week - interviewed at TRADER Corporation in May 2012.

Interview Details – Simple phone interview, invited to a two person interview. Pay offered was below what I could survive on and it seemed as the commission scales were abnormally low as well. People that interviewed me both seemed really stressed and they didn't give me a straight answer to my questions. I asked how long people tended to stay in this position and they paused, the HR girl looked at the Sales manager and they said typically anywhere from 1 year to 5+. Sounded like a load of crap to me.

Anonymous Employee
Burnaby, BC (Canada)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at TRADER Corporation in June 2008.

Interview Details – I got a phone interview shortly after my friend referred me to the job. The phone interview was very easy, followed by a 1:1 interview and a spelling test. It was important because I would be hired to write and edit ads. There were a lot of scenario questions and I was asked to pick something on the table and sell it.

Interview Question – Pick something on the table and sell it to me.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation - unionized position.
