WIRELESS SALES EXPERT Interview

WIRELESS SALES EXPERT

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wireless Advocates in July 2010.

Interview Details – I had an original interview with a kiosk manager of the store for which I was applying. They then passed me to another KM of another store. After that I was called briefly by the DM. As a manager i usually would do initial interviews, sometimes a second interview would be done by another Km then sent to the district manager for approval. I was also sometimes used as a final consideration because the DM trusted my interview techniques and opinions. I was mostly looking for individuals that were passionate, conveyed reliability, and were friendly and outgoing. As well as professional. I found this very hard to find because of the entry level pay expectations, most qualified people would apply elsewhere.

Interview Question – What was the last creative thing you have done? Also, "When was the last time you missed your goal?"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. The pay is set based on location. If you want more, sell more.

WIRELESS SALES EXPERT Interview

WIRELESS SALES EXPERT
Seekonk, MA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Wireless Advocates in August 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online, they called me for a phone interview, offered me the job, had me meet with a regional supervisor and I started 3 weeks later. I was excited to start and was glad to be able to get a job since the economy isn't so great and "flexible hours" since I am a college student. Trust me, It was all downhill after I started working for WA.

Interview Question – Would you be willing to work 30 to 40 hours a week around your school schedule?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Don't even bother working for this company. They tell you how great it is, you start working, make absolutely no money, half the hours they promised you and a huge headache. If you want to work in mobile sales I suggest going to the companies directly... not this 3rd party sales company

WIRELESS SALES EXPERT Interview

WIRELESS SALES EXPERT

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Wireless Advocates in July 2011.

Interview Details – I heard about the job through a former co-worker. He was new at his position. The company had just moved into the area. I interviewed with an area manager and filled out online job application and underwent a drug test and background check. I had a second interview with another manager. I was told I would be on duty at the kiosk and alone on my shift. There are no kiosk managers in the MA/RI stores.You are required to wear black Polo shirts, black slacks and shoes. You were told you would provide your own "uniform" without compensation. I did not know then that there would be no training other than watching some videos online. I did not know there would not be formal kiosk support for sales, just calling and texting other kiosks for info.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – I was told there was no negotiating; take it or leave it. That was the policy across the board The 130 locations in NE are closing so that is a moot point. If you are in another area of the country you should take the job and keep on looking if you are unemployed.
