    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at TigerDirect in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Loitered around the store when I arrived, since the interviewer was not at the store at the time. Interview was quite quick and formal, my interviewer got straight to the point and very direct. After reading my resume and answering a few questions, he then offered me the job, but before that, I had to fill out a few papers, get a few tests and everything was good.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at TigerDirect.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview. I spoke with a District or Territory manager who was cordial until he asked me about salary expectations. This is when he became extremely condescending. I remained calm but at that point the interview was over. He made me feel like I was wasting his time and was out or my mind for even thinking I was going to get paid said amount, even though my current employer has no problem paying me that amount.

    B2B Account Manager - Raleigh, NC Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC
    Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at TigerDirect in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was initially contacted by a recruiter who found my resume on Indeed.com. The recruiter sent over the job description via email and a brief telephone interview was conducted. On the telephone interview, the recruiter asked me a number of questions pertaining to inside sales. After the call, I was instructed to fill out an online application. The online application contained 9 questions (1. What image do you have of our company and this industry? What types of products/services have you sold and how did you sell them? What kind of goals motivate you the best? What total compensation are you seeking? Tell me about a sales experience that demonstrates your work ethic? What is your sales process, given a qualified lead? How many contacts do you make on a qualified lead? If you had to turn down a request from a valued client, what would you do? Describe a customer complaint that you have resolved? How do you handle negative feedback from very angry clients? How do you respond to him/her? Explain with an example, how would you handle a situation where a customer is asking for something, which is not in the interest of the company or which would violate a policy of the company?) Once I completed the application, the recruiter set up a face to face interview with Tiger Direct. The interview was not difficult as they asked the same questions from the online application. I was interviewed by two sales manager and I sat with an inside sales rep for 15 minutes. I was offered the job on the spot.

    The salary offered was 25K for the first six months with 13% commission and 20K after six months with 18% commission. A new inside sales rep starts with no client list therefore you will not profit from the commission until you develop a solid client list which will take anywhere from 1-2 years. They only offer 6 paid holidays out of 10 calendar holidays. You do not start accruing vacation time until you have been employed for 6 months.

    Even though the salary was not what I was looking for the people seem to be friendly. I do believe this is an opportunity for someone who is now starting off. It is a decent alternative from working at a fast food joint and having to work weekend and holiday hours. This is a nice opportunity for self motivated students, it does require a person with confidence, who is well spoken, and comfortable using a computer.
