    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cbeyond (Atlanta, GA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Everything at the beginning seem great. I had to do a phone interview, face to face interview and then what they call a ride along. The sales representative u ride with has a lot to do with whether u get hired or not. If I can give u any advice that would be to make sure u ask the sales rep you are riding with if you could try to do the sales pitch to the next prospect you all go to after you have pulled several doors and feel comfortable.

    Interview Questions

    • Why would I choose you over the ten applicants I am interviewing today?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Ask if it is 100% cold calling and if so has Cbeyond done a better job of not sending there sales Reps to cold call on current customers. It is embarrassing.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Cbeyond (Denver, CO) in March 2013.

    Interview

    A recruiter for Cbeyond is first contact. One interview with him/her and if moving forward, an interview with the director-- your immediate manager-- then with the VP of branch.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions are not difficult for an individual with sales experience. However, best to do very little talking as this branch is not interested in you,but an attitude of hard work. Mixed messages will be sent, for example; you'll be asked about your consultative skills; claim to have them, however this branch wants a transactional, one call close mentality. A good answer might be; I will consult with the buyer as the situation calls for, but I am expecting/going to close this sale in the seat.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very little room to negotiate.
