Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative
Charlotte, NC

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Yodle in November 2013.

Interview Details – Went in for for interview in person - Charlotte office, after a phone interview from AZ office. Interviewed with two people, though neither were the person I was told I would interview with. I was there for about an hour and a half. They went over my resume and asked some typical, and some not as typical questions. They seemed to want to get a sense of my sales style, and ability to handle the environment.

Interview Question – How many gas stations do you think are in the united states?   View Answer

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Yodle.

Interview Details – It was a phone interview. It lasted about 10 minutes. Questions were situation focused. The interviewer was very calm and pleasant. There were about six different questions. My resume was not brought up for question. It is important to know the company history and some current events about it. It would be wise to have a few questions to ask the interviewer.

Interview Question – What was a time where you had to adapt to change and how did you handle it?   Answer Question

Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative
Austin, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Yodle in January 2013.

Interview Details – First went to an open information session where they told us all the details about the company and what the role entailed. That same day, we set up follow-up phone interview. A couple of days later, they called me up and asked very basic interview questions. Eg. What are your strengths/weaknesses? What has been a challenging event in your life and how did you overcome it? Etc.
On that same call, set up a time/date for the one-on-one interview. Went in a couple of days later and interviewed with head of recruiting. Really easy-going interview process. Nothing really difficult about it. As long as you're into sales, challenges and staying motivated in a goal-oriented role; you'll do just fine. Have a very positive attitude, it goes such a long way. Also got to sit in on a sales call for 30min as part of the interview to see what the role was really like in practice. You get to see the atmosphere on the floor, the energy in the teams and all the action. That's the fun part.
The whole interview lasted around one hour and after, you're told they will let you know in one to two days. I was told the next day that I was being offered the position. Easy, breezy and painless.

Interview Question – What inspires you and what motivates you?   View Answers (2)

Negotiation Details – Really no room for negotiating. You either take it or leave it. Very low base (20K), but high commission plan.

Sales Representative
Austin, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Yodle in August 2012.

Interview Details – Received a phone call that had some preliminary interview questions. Then was asked to come in for a formal 1 on 1 interview and short demonstration of product. Typical interview questions and very short interview. Wasn't too interested in a cold calling position so did not follow up after interview. I received an email about 2 weeks later saying they were moving forward with other candidates.

Interview Question – Name a time when you purposefully did not follow directions from your supervisor and why?   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative
Austin, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Yodle in September 2012.

Interview Details – The process was very quick. The Austin office is expanding very rapidly, so they are having luncheons and information sessions for prospective employees.

I went to a luncheon, shadowed a sales rep to see if I was interested in the position, and then came back the next day for my final interview. Everyone there is really friendly!

My interview did not last long, some may take longer. They are very particular abut making sure you are a right for the environment and atmosphere.

I was offered the job right away.

Interview Question – None   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation as far as base and pay for this position. Everyone gets a set base. Perks and benefits are awesome!

Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Yodle in September 2011.

Interview Details – I traveled down to NYC to have a 1 on 1 interview after speaking with one of their recruiters over the phone. My interview lasted only about 10 minutes and was a complete waste of my time. I have a background in sales and marketing and I was asked which area I would rather work in and replied that I'd be willing to throw my hand into either one because I have experience in both. Apparently they'd like you to have your heart set on one item. How can a recent graduate find what he really wants if not given the opportunity to experience both? Shortly after answering that questions the interview was over. Definitely not a company I'd want to work for if you're open to learning different processes.
