    Residential Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    The interview was professional and not terribly long in duration; about 40 minutes. I was surprised to get the initial contact, as the recruiter referenced a resume that I'd placed on CareerBuilder about 18 months previously. That alone made me a little hesitant but I decided to make the trip anyway. If nothing else, it would help me make up my mind without that nagging doubt. As it turns out, making the appointment was the way to go. I didn't wait very long and the questions were relevant and to the point.

    I was immediately called for a second interview. After thinking about the offer for a couple of days, I decided it wasn't enough. The base pay is very, very low, and the commisions are based on house-to-house selling, which involves a lot of driving and on-site cold calling. For those that don't have any real bills yet, it would be a good starting job.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, NH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, NH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at TruGreen.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, initial phone screen, face-to-face with hiring manager(s) - regional sales and branch manager, ridiculously difficult and unnecessary "assessment" took 3 hours to complete at office, could not complete from home, phone interview with national sales dir, follow-up interview with hiring managers AGAIN, offer.

    Be clear on comp before you proceed through process. Frustrating to get all the way to offer to find it is no where near what you were told

    Interview Questions
    • General sales management questions, how do you motivate a team, what do you do if your team is 40% to quota and only 3 days left in the week   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Comp was at least 10k short of my low range, which I stated I needed in 2 separate parts of interview, seems like a very micromanaged sales management role

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at TruGreen.

    Interview Details

    I had to go through three interviews. The first with a Field Sales Supervisor, next with the Sales Manager, then the last with the General Manager. Besides the local hospital this was the next hardest interview I have ever done.

    Interview Questions
    • I had to sell my interviewer which happened to be the sales manager and ink pen. I had no sales experience when I interviewed, although it would be a lot easier for me to do this now, at that time this was the most difficult for me.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They did not offer me the job in person, they called like a day after my last interview to offer me the position. Once I accepted over the phone, they gave me a date to start work.

    Door to Door Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in White Marsh, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in White Marsh, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at TruGreen in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on CareerBuilder.com and was called for an initial interview a day or so later. I walk in and it was a total unprofessional call center. I had my interview with the sales manager, Justin. It was mostly questions and answers about the job, but he didn't learn too much about my work ethic. He pulled his manager in as well and seemed pretty impressed that I was interested in the job and myself. They were definitely trying to sell me the job more than finding out about me. A few days later, I received a call to come in for a second interview with the branch manager, Steve. I had my doubts about this company after reading TONS of negative comments on Facebook from their clients. There was nothing positive at all about this company. However, I really need a job and went. The branch manager didn't really ask me anything about myself either, just wanted to see if I had any questions for him and if I was ok working 55+ hours a week. He told me he would call me the next day to let me know what the next step would be. I received no call that day, the next day, or even within that week, until over a week later, I received an email from People Answers saying I was not qualified for the job. That was totally ok with me, BUT, if these people are really professional's, one of them could have at least called and told me or even have sent me a personal email from their email address within the next day or two after the second interview. Instead they had a third party company tell me I did not get the job. Don't waste your time with these interviews and negativity from their VERY unhappy so called customers.
