    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Traeger Pellet Grills.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview was simple, then Skype to sell the grill. The recruiter wasn't difficult, but also didn't ask any pointed questions. I'm unsure why i didnt get selected for the job as I am a seasoned sale pro who presents well. You must overcome at least ONE objection or you'll be rejected.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Traeger Pellet Grills.

    Interview Details

    First you submit a video of a sales pitch on youtube. Next will be a video "interview", it's just another sales pitch. Then they'll send you to Utah for 3 days of training, learning the pitch, and learning about the company.

    Interview Questions
    • No questions really. Just need to know how to pitch something.   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    Beware. It is a high pressure sales job. They will sell you on the product, which I believe has a niche market, but its not the best like they claim. If its as good as they claim, it would sell itself... The company has a huge lack of integrity. Don't go to Utah if you're on the fence at all. They had told me it was a "no risk" interview process, meaning if either party didn't fit, they would pay for all of the travel. I bowed out of the interview process for questionable selling strategies (laughing at customers if they couldn't afford a grill, or applauding customer disservice for example). After I told them it wasn't a good fit, they told me I was on my own to get back home. For a long taxi back to the airport, and a plane ticket that day, I was out quite a bit of money. Not so "risk free" if you ask me.

    National Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Traeger Pellet Grills.

    Interview Details

    I was excited about the 10 days on/10 days off aspect of the position. I can sell anything. However, in my career, I am done "selling" myself. I applied via LinkedIn and had a response almost immediately, asking me to create an account and to fill out the application, so I did. Then I received a very long email about how I needed to put together a video of myself selling their product. No. I will not do that. I have managed 30+ sales people, I will not make a video of myself. I did not respond after the email inquiry.
