Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Canon Solutions America (New York, NY) in December 2016.

Interview

Still going through the process. I think that they take a long time to get back to you and to schedule for everything. I never understand why it takes so long and they never get back to you in a timely manner or forget.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Canon Solutions America (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Applied Online, received Email from Recruiter days later and scheduled a phone interview. She told me about the position and asked me questions about my prior employment, skills/experience and what salary range I was comfortable with (including commissions). Met with manager in the branch. Waited a few days and was asked to come back in and meet with a branch director. Received and Accepted Offer. Everyone I met with (including front desk admin) was extremely friendly and answered any questions I had. I have been with Canon for 6 months and have been doing very well. The job is not easy...you need to work hard but I have done well so I find it rewarding and I like the customer interaction, sale and commission checks.

    Interview

    You interview with a few different people over the course of a couple of weeks and then they hire you if they like you. I am trying to reach my 50 word minimum to submit this. I am only a few words away. The interview was not very hard though.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Canon Solutions America in May 2011.

    Interview

    Canon Business Solutions is currently experiencing a hiring freeze, so some challenges came up in their hiring me, but the process over-all was very smooth. Management was friendly and gave excellent feedback, also they did respond to my follow-up emails in a timely manner. I was asked to create a presentation on why I was the best candadate, but I found that to be only slightly intimidating. Very professional group over-all.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Was unable to negotiate anything since they had to get special permission just to bring me in- also they have firm standards on compensation for various levels of sales reps. The best thing you can do in the Las Vegas market is ask for more than the standard 3 months for the comp kicker, its not enough time to build the pipeline and start closing business, and there are very few existing accounts to upgrade or renew. Be prepared, training is long and usually away from your home city. I was sent back east for a total of 4 weeks- which was all expense paid as long as you only eat $40 a day. Oh, you may want to negotiate for a higher car allowance as well.
