    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Canon Canada (Burnaby, BC (Canada)) in January 2007.

    Interview

    there's 2 interviews: the first interview is more about understanding where you fit in the company, testing confidence, what your past experience are. Then you meet with the sales manager to see if your personality fits with his. Third part is to do the computerized skills test. I find it`s more like a personality test. They want to know if you have the thick skin to be a sales rep.

    Interview Questions

    • how many cold calls door-to-door you`ve done in ur past jobs. I don`t have any, so it was hard for me to answer.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Canon Canada (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Multi-step process, very stock corporate-style interviews at first, once you meet with the Sales Managers it is more personal, meeting them sold me on the job at that point. I make a job choice on knowing that I can work with people, not just if the profile sounds nice.

    Interview Questions

    • None I couldn't handle. Fairly typical of the print industry and sales.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No need to negotiate. I liked the offer they gave me at the very beginning.
