Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wireless Advocates in August 2014.

Interview

I went into Costco to purchase a phone. I asked if they were hiring and they gave me an application and interviewed me on the spot. I then was interviewed over the phone with the DM- district manager a few days later. He then sent me to a different costco the following week to do an interview with his main kiosk manager. You will have 48 hours from there to take a drug test. They also do a background test. Total process took 2 weeks if you stay on top of it.

Interview Questions

Dress nicely, speak clearly, expect the same questions over and over again throughout the process.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. It's their way or no way.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wireless Advocates in June 2010.

    Interview

    I was an exception to their normal interview process as I was hired on the spot because of my experience. My understanding is that typically you drop off a resume and are contacted by a Kiosk Manager. You interview with him/her and then are passed along for a second interview with either another KM or a DM(District Manager). If they all agree you're a good fit you're hired. It's sales... turnover is high and if you're going to sell a lot of phones before you quit they aren't too picky.

    Interview

    The hiring manager was friendly and made me feel comfortable through the interview process. He asked me various questions about my work history and how it pertained to the job I was hiring for. I was sure to be confident in my ability to talk about how working in the food industry I learned how when talking with people you need to learn how to listen more then you talk so you can understand what it is they need so that you can fill that need. He was impressed with that response and offered me a challenge, it was to sell him a notebook. I took the notebook assessed the situation and dove in with a friendly greeting, proceeded to ask him some questions about his notebook needs, perhaps was it for travel? did he need it to work outdoors, indoors or both? I was open-ended with several of the questions to ensure conversation, In what ways do you take notes now? After gathering enough "ammo" I proceeded to ask for the sale (This is a must in any sales job you apply for to demonstrate this ability) I said well Gill*(name changed) based on what you told me this notebook is perfect for you, I proceeded to repeat back some of the "features" we talked about and suggested he buy a pack of pens (I eyed sitting on the table) as it would complement his purchase well. He shook my hand said he was sold. He even offered incite on how I was one of the few to spot the pens and offer them as well, where I could of improved was mentioning the advantages of getting the notebook from myself vs anywhere else but I made up for it by being very direct when asking for the sale. We talked some more about the types of hours I could work, and availability of a possible start date which hinted the position would soon be mine. The next day I had a phone interview with a very charismatic district manager who offered a lot of insight about himself had a few questions for me then congratulated me on receiving a contegent offer and pending drug and background test being a part of the team. I was thrilled as a friend of mine working for the company had been doing very well and I was excited to become apart of it.

    Negotiation

    Negotiating in a sales job is simple, your hourly pay is just a base any good salesman will tell you that you should learn your product, be confident, and ask for the sale. Other then that its a numbers game, the more people you talk to the more people you can close, the more you make.
