    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Unishippers.

    Interview

    I went in for an interview and met with the hiring manager. The interview was very unprofessional and all he did was ask me about what I did in school and what sports I like. I did not get an offer. He called me back for a second interview and The interview was only 20 minutes this time. Again I did not get an offer. Interviewing with a company that does not want to bring me on but waste my time twice to tell me that I don't have the job is pointless. The company needs a new interviewing process. I am glad I don't work for the company. I would have failed for not answering enough questions about my school days.

    Sales Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Unishippers (Green Bay, WI) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Interview process was very unprofessional and the owner was very condescending. The owner was very focused on how quickly you can type vs sales skills. In today's day and age majority of people have the ability to type quickly. The individual's resume should speak for itself. If you have had success and your work history establish's that, it's absolutely insulting to ramble on about the importance of typing fast.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Auburn Hills, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Unishippers (Auburn Hills, MI) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Send resume to branch manager/owner, contact via telephone to set-up interview time and date. First interview was with the owner, the second interview was with the owner again and then his head of logistics and the sales manager all separately. Then there was an offer placed for a salary base and commission structure, along with a non-compete agreement. Management is looking for an aggressive, go-getter type so be certain to emphasize this during your interview. They like "hunters" and former high school and/or college athletes abound in this company overall. A competitive type of person is what they are seeking out for their sales staff additions to the team, so be sure to highlight past achievements in sales (or sports or other competitive type of environment you might have excelled within if not having sales experience). You want to highlight that you are not an account manager but more of a new business developer and willing to bring new business on board on a consistent and ongoing basis.

    Interview Questions

    • Probably most important, hence the most difficult, would be describing a situation in which you had to perform to a certain level/achieve a certain quota in sales and whether you reached that goal, why or why not (I would go with WHY rather than why not in this scenario, by the way)?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    This is an entry level sales position for the most part, so pretty competitive pay as far as they go in my experience. If you have a book of business you are bringing on board with you, I would definitely negotiate a larger percentage in commission (rather than the standard 10% they offer new sales employees) and/or higher base salary - although higher percentage in commission will look better (means you are confident in your ability to bring in business and are willing to get paid for performance rather than receive a fat salary and smaller commission pay out. A written offer will be sent to you with the standard $32,500 salary plus 10% of profit in commission monthly for your accounts you bring business in from.
