Pro Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Chicago, IL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Valspar.

Interview Details – Got a call for an interview and interviewed the next day. Was a real solid interview but unless you have a clean clean clean driving record you can forget about working for this company. Although its illegal to turn down candidates if they have a minor moving violation that was the only reason they had for turning this one away. After interview was told I would be contacted within 2 weeks. waited 2 weeks and didn't hear anything. On the third week emailed the person conducting the interview and never heard anything back. Very unprofessional.

Interview Question – If your best friend was sitting and talking with us right now then I asked you to get up and leave the table and asked them what they really thought about you in one word, what do you think they would say?   View Answer
