    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Initial contact at a career fair. A few days later got a call to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was difficult. A lot of very specific, detailed questions. I seemed to have passed though, as the recruiter set me up with another phone interview with the Sales Manager. This interview seemed much easier than the previous one. Fewer questions that were not very detailed. Mostly just personality assessment questions. I was told to check my email in the coming days to see if I would move on to an on-site interview. This email was quick to arrive. I would not be moving on. Other than the final email telling me I had not moved on, correspondence was slow. After the initial phone interview, I was told I'd receive a call in 48 hours. 4 days passed before I received the next phone call.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Berry Company.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview, then 4 more interviews including doing a sales simulation over the phone. Lengthy process for an entry level job. First you do a phone interview with an HR screener. Then if you pass that, you do 2 one on ones in the same day. Then if they want you to keep going, you come back and do a 3rd interview plus a sample sales call.

    Negotiation Details
    I was told - incorrectly that there is no negotiation on the offer - I found out I was offered less than most others at the same time. I outperformed them all and was not considered for a raise.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at The Berry Company in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Refer someone and you get $'s!! I was contacted by the hiring recruiter over the phone and completed a phone screen. The phone screen was to find out what my job at the time entailed, what all I knew about the position I had applied for, and why I wanted to work at The Berry Company. Confidence is key! I was then invited to meet him in person. I had a quick convo with him before doing a mock sales call. I was placed in a room to go over a customer situation and what products I would be offering to him. Being articulate and having a good tone of voice is key! I had no idea what I was reading and doing but apparently the way I spoke over the phone was great, and I remembered to asked for the sale at the end of the mock sales call!! You are then called back into the office to speak with the hiring recruiter (who also happens to be a Sales Manager, and you might be on his team.) If he likes you, he passes you to the next Sales Manager and then another Sales Manager and then the District Manager. If you don't see all Managers, you are not going to get hired. The questions are very easy. As long as you are confident, can hold a conversation, and have some sales experience, then you will more than likely get hired. I worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car for 5 1/2 years in management, so being offered a job at The Berry Company felt impossible but ended up being possible!

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at The Berry Company in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviewing was easy. Upper management was friendly the whole time, simply looking for people that fit the culture. Its obvious that they are searching for a younger group in their new business ventures to change the company culture.
