Inside Sales Representative Interview

Inside Sales Representative
Tampa, FL

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at TruGreen in October 2013.

Interview Details – Back when I was hired it was very unorganized. First you submit your resume through careers link on website. Called a couple of days later from a recruiter, asked a series of 3-5 questions. If chosen they have you come in for a quick group interview which contained 2-3 questions and a round robin type answering session. Then they wold have you sit with a sales rep and see the day to day operations. From there if you were considered, you come back a again for a one on one interview, with a scenario based role play. Then an offer would follow if you had the job.

Interview Question – The role playing scenario. They put you on the phone on the floor with the rest of the agents, taking over you, throwing balls around like footballs, stress balls, etc… and complaining about customers they just had on the phone. All while the manager is in the office listening, granted you are given a script.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – no negotiating take it or leave it!

General Manager Interview

General Manager
Lees Summit, MO

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at TruGreen in March 2014.

Interview Details – Started with a phone interview followed by an online personality and cognitive reasoning/math skills assessments. The initial in-person interview was with the Sales Manager and was designed to be more informative than a typical screening process. The second interview was with the General Manager and focused on my skills and experience. It was a very comfortable, low pressure interview and the GM shared several stories of what led him to his current position…and allowed me ample time to describe my work history.

Interview Question – Both interviews were free-flowing without the stereotypical questions designed to “stump” me or cause an uncomfortable situation designed to “see how I react”. Questions during both interviews were more of the: “so tell me about yourself….” questions which allowed me to paint a picture of my strengths and accomplishments as I saw fit.   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed 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 Question – 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.
