    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Time Warner Cable in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The Interview wasn't so much a measure of sales competence, but feeling out how much time you can and are willing to give to the position. There questions were more about how well the household could support your effort and how willing you were to do it. At the end of the interview, there was the obligatory "selling of the pen" routine. I felt like how willing you were to actually sell it instead of trying to gauge proficiency.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult part of the interview, because I'd never worked in sales before, was the selling of the pen.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation on salary was needed. It was a straight forward offer with fair to good compensation based on sales performance.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Time Warner Cable in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, called by recruiter who asks basic questions about why you'd be a good fit for the position, tells you about the position and what it entails, and asks if this would be something you're interested in. Recruiter then sets you up with 1on1 interview with Sales Manager. If interview goes well, recruiter calls later that day with formal offer and tells you about onboarding process. Lengthy background check, drug screen, and several other steps before leaving for Columbus for training. They do offer OUTSTANDING benefits (excellent healthcare, dental, vision, pension, free cable and Internet as well), add'l training pay on top of salary, and several other benefits. GREAT company to get in with.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time when you were frustrated with not getting the sale an how did you handle it   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No room for negotiation. Apparently, there's been positive change as there is now a salary plus commission and just a couple years ago, it was simply commission.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Time Warner Cable in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Filled out extensive application online and then had a short phone interview. Then went to HQ in Charlotte for a 45 minute interview. Every person in the interview process was extremely nice and supportive. Sales Manager Tony Seko, who I had the final interview with, is a fantastic person who cares. He never puts the thumb on you and you care about him so much, you want to deliver, always. Everyone else in management is cool as well but Tony Seko is they best thing they've got going.

    Interview Questions
    • They ask about your best qualities and your short comings, how you handled a difficult situation in your professional. Not really unexpected but those questions can be minefields.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It was established up front. $20,000 plus commission and benefits.
