    Inside Sales Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Northbrook, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Beacon Funding (Northbrook, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Application submission, test taking, 2 phone screens (one with HR and one with a tenured sales rep) and an in person with the CEO, VP of Sales and Marketing and the VP of Operations in a panel style setting or a group interview if you will. Wasn't too aggressive.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't many questions asked directly to me, there was more unilateral talking at me about the company and etc. The actual time spent covering my skills and abilities I bring to the table was 1/3 of the chat. A majority of it was philosophical in nature. It didn't really feel like much of an interview and more of a conversation. I felt pretty confident leaving.   1 Answer
