    Territory Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Cbeyond (Dallas, TX) in March 2013.

    Interview

    First step of the interview process you interview with a Corporate recruiter. The interview is pretty much a formal interview. They will ask about your job history, education and why do you want a career in sales. they will ask questions like "how did you solve this problem at your last job" or "did you ever offer any suggestions that improve the productivity of your
    workplace."

    Next step is you do a field ride with one of the sales reps at the company. You will spend the whole day out in the field shadowing a sales rep cold calling different business, so you get an idea the job is like on a every day basis. You will be expected to cold call a few doors, just to show the Rep that you can handle the basic function of the job. Afterwards at the end of the day you will finish up by having a interview with the team sales manager.
     and

    The interview with the sales manager is usually informal and pretty much involves the sales manager trying to get a feel for the kind of person you are, and determine if you will be a good fit for the team. So obliviously try to be as personable as you can.

    Interviewed for Sales Representative In Los Angeles Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cbeyond (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Horrible interview process. They scammed me into thinking I was getting a different position than the one I was applying for. Also the field day experience was absolutely excruciating. It was a total scam honestly and I don't wish this position or this company for that matter on anyone. They take advantage of new grads right out of college with desirable commission but in reality and in reality of sales in general it is not that glamorous. The office was stuffy and extremely unorganized as well.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were nothing out of the ordinary...I got interviewed a few times throughout the day which i thought was odd but the worst part of the interview was when I had to shadow a current sales rep with CBeyond and go out in the field with him...which basically consisted of knocking on everyone and anyone's door in their given district. It was not only degrading but hugely embarrassing with the way we were treated by business owners and various companies in their territory.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    The field day was the worst day of my life. They paired me up with a man that was similar in age that I was. I am 24. After 3 hours of effortless knocking on doors he decided to get lunch at a bar.. and to answer the next question you are probably thinking is YES he did drink (on the job) and during my interview process during the field day training. After he guzzled down 3 Guinness pints I decided to have a drink as well because at that point I knew even if I was offered the job which I was...I knew I didnt want it anyways.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cbeyond (Gardena, CA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    There was a three process interview, interview was very easy to get. They promise of high comissions and great gass allowance and phone allowance. Was kind of skeptical of it because of all the bad reviews i found flying around the web which seemed very true. Three step interview with the last being a ride along with one of the sales reps.

    Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aurora, CO
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cbeyond (Aurora, CO) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Cbeyond is a good "bootcamp" for just out of college, never had a sales job individual. The interviewer wants to hear, "always be closing" verbage and mentality. The sales model is based on very high activity so appear and answer energetically. The recruiters are focused on the "mellinial" generation. Two reasons, one, they know you have little work experience so can take advantage your "greeness" and shape you into an activity machine. 2, You'll be paid less, however, if you desire a career in sales, this is a great training ground. If you can endure and succeed at Cbeyond, every other sales job after that will be smooth sailing.

    Interview Questions

    • Personally, I don't believe there are any difficult questions during the interview. They expect little or no experience. The most difficult decision will be yours. Do you want to take this job having researched the going salary and what you may have heard about working conditions.   Answer Question
