Door to Door Sales Representative

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at TruGreen in January 2012.

Interview Details – There was only one interview to get hired on as a door to door salesman at TruGreen. The interview was very fast and a lot of questions were asked. My interviewer told me that customer service was the most important experience that they look for because they can teach anyone how to sell lawn care.

Interview Question – all of the interview questions that were asked were standard interview questions   Answer Question

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at TruGreen in February 2013.

Interview Details – Very unprofessional. Sales manager did not interview candidates. He spent all of the interview time telling candidates how many times he has "crushed it" over his career, and that has always made 6 figure incomes. Told candidates that they should expect to make $65K in their role. Real world expectations are under $40K - if you get kept on through the insulation season. No one in my office ever made $40K - even if they "crushed it".

Interview Question – There were none.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Told them that I would not work for $475/week base, so they immediately offered $523.

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at TruGreen in March 2013.

Interview Details – I got offered the position, but I am going to decline. Wasn't totally sold on the branch manager's approach to me on the phone. Told me I can start in a week, and when I told him I do probably have to hand in a 2 week notice to my employement, he didn't seem to say anything or like that I told him that. Hours I am not crazy about, and I don't know...is it seasonal? didn't answer many of my questions.

Interview Question – Do I have sales experience... how long I'd work here   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at TruGreen in December 2013.

Interview Details – This was a very serious interview process just for a door knocker position. It consisted of 3 interviews, and an online questionarre. The whole process took about a week and a half, and everyone is very professional. They asked typical questions like why should we choose you, what do you bring to the table, etc.
