    Audio/Video Sales Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Bang & Olufsen.

    Interview Details

    The manager literally didn't seem to know what he was doing. He actually said "I've never done this really before, do you have any questions for me?" I then proceeded to rule the interview for over 30 minutes. Based on this experience I wasn't sure I even wanted the position, but the job market was tough and I took it. Three years later I look back on that interview as an ideal example of why I should have stayed away. There are no HR "rulebooks" at B&O, everything is run by a single overburdened and single-minded HR "assistant" who also helps the National sales manager out. If you worked for Apple or were a DJ, or perhaps pushed paper at Office Depot you'll be hired on as management with no background or drug checks. Within months these individuals seem to become overwhelmed and either sue the company or disappear.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation. you take their base salary and start off as a "play specialist". If you do well after 6 months they send you to training so you can sell larger solution products and become a "real salesperson". The kick is you don't really get paid more, you just get more responsibility.
