    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    I interviewed online - interviewed at UniFirst.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone interview was very brief. I was asked to tell them a little about myself and my work experience. After a quick conversation, I was asked if I was willing to get 8-12 company's to complete a 6 question survey about their business. This is a great trial by fire vetting task, you know right away if cold calling business to business sales is what you want to do for a living. Great company to work for from what I understand, just not me.

    You will meet the Sales Manager and Branch Manager. They will string you along until they fire someone. Then they will rush you in to a drug test and "training" which at first is just BS videos about the dead founder and anti union vids.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Marysville, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marysville, WA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at UniFirst.

    Interview Details

    I had similar experinces to what the people before me have written. They want to know your life story, especially anything that shows your competitive edge, starting with highschool. Hopefully you are not currently employed because they will want to interview you 5 times. They will likely also give you a field exercise or ride along. If you really want the job be persistant they like that. Word of caution though, they will monitor your every move (with consistant phone calls and gps tracking) and expect you to be in the field cold calling from 8am to 5pm. The cold calling schedule isn't bad unless you are good at sales and need to do order write ups, and presentations or proposals. If you need to do things like that it has to come out of your own time. As does anything else you need to do to create an order. Planning for you weekly check in meetings happens on your own time too which includes scheduling your cold call route and writting plans on how you are going to penitrate your large accounts. All in all the employees that work for the branch I was at were either constently in trouble or worked 60+ hours a week. I urge you to talk to any current employee to see what the work conditions are because it becomes hard to apply for other jobs and interview when you work so many hours.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me what you were like in highschool. I would recommend asking them what they are looking for during the interview and package your anwsers accordingly since that is what their training will tell you to do.   Answer Question

    Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Wilmington, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Wilmington, MA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at UniFirst.

    Interview Details

    Had a total of 3 interviews, first was a phone interview with department supervisor, then another in person with department supervisor, then with Dept Manager and VP of Marketing. The people were very nice and the interviews were casual and easy-going. At the beginning of the third interview, the VP, who obviously did not review my resume beforehand, says, "Wow, you come from _____? That's a long commute for minimum wage." It pretty much went down hill from there. No matter what I said to diffuse the matter, he could not get his head around the distance issue.

    To top it off, I had a two hour drive to get to the interview and had to take a "test" after each interview. A test! Seriously?? I've been in the business almost as long as the supervisor as been alive!

    After a month of emails and interviews, I never heard back… not even a rejection letter.
