    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at American Power and Gas (Seminole, FL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The process was quick. I had taken 3 different tests determining my intelliegence and I.Q. After that I had filled out a ton of paperwork. Ultimately, I enjoyed the layout; for it weeded people out without regard for any bias.

    Interview Questions

    • Follow these simple instructions exactly. Tell me to move this pen 3 times. Last time, deliver it more sternly.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Power and Gas (Clearwater, FL) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Came in for a scheduled interview and waited in the front room while 5 other people joined, two of them were walk ins and were asked to come back at the same time I was, which I thought was a bit rude. I had an initial interview that was very simple told minimal information about myself and the interviewer asked me to move a pen, literally. Then I went into a back room and took a personality test and an IQ test. Be prepared to be there forever. (1hr-1&1/2) after these tests I spoke with two other men very briefly.

    Trainer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at American Power and Gas (Clearwater, FL) in November 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process is easy if you can rub two brain cells together. Honestly, show up looking sharp (that means business attire), on your best behavior, well slept, well fed, and ready to answer questions. A strong handshake and maintaining eye contact goes a long way.

    I was received in their reception area, filled out a job application form, was brought into the Interviewer's office, met with her, asked questions, answered hers, and went on my merry way afterwards.

    Received a call back two days later, came in, filled out the employee paperwork, and gave my job two week's notice and here I am, 3 years later, I'm still here and I have moved up in the company.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked about my past experience, what were my strengths and weaknesses, I had already researched the company so I was able to ask intelligent questions.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Simple....easy....exactly the same as the person who provided interview review. They collect people, keep half or less. Then the mad cycle serms to repeat itself. Steer very clear from this company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Power and Gas in December 2014.

    Interview

    MINDLESS- My three year old grand daughter could probably pass this interview. They ask you about two or three questions about your work history. Ask you to read a paragraph and then the interviewer ask you to convince him to move a pen from one side of the table to the other.

    Interview Questions

    • NONE. The unexpected part was that I thought they were joking when they said that was it and hired me on the spot. Since, I had expected more. They have a huge turn over and constantly hiring   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    none. $13,50 and hour and a ramped up commission structure

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Power and Gas (Clearwater, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Short interview. This is a one on one interview that will be had after you fill out your application.
    Be prepared to answer questions about previous employment, and be ready to sell your skills.
    The main thing to remember is to stay calm and collected if possible. Smile, make good eye contact, and be assertive, but not aggressive. Confident, but not cocky. Calm, but not lackadaisical.

    Interview Questions

    • "Make me move this pen." This was the main interview point. Of course you will be asked about prior experience, and how it relates to this job, but this (or possibly a question like this) is the main determination point for the interview. The goal is to be persistent, stay calm, and don't panic. It's really basic sales. You have something you want a person to do. They will have 1-5 objections. Overcome their objections with reason in a non-aggressive manner to make them see your view.
      And don't forget your ABC's: Always Be Closing! Don't forget to end your point or rebuttal with a close, such as "So go ahead and move your pen."   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at American Power and Gas (Seminole, FL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The process was pretty straight forward. They wanted to know if I had former sales experience, how much money I was looking to make, and in general what I was looking for out of a job. I told them I have some sales experience and that I was looking for a place where I could make a legitimate career out of sales and have room for growth and to increase my income. I did a couple tests and I got the job.
