Direct Sales Representative Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Comcast.

Interview

I was originally contacted by a recruiter and asked to schedule a phone screen; I was then asked to complete an online application. After the application was submitted I received another call from the recruiter. After a few days I received another unscheduled call from another recruiter, and later received another unscheduled interview from the same recruiter. Typically, interviews are scheduled to provide both parties appropriate timing. The recruiter had a negative attitude; other than being condesending he asked me "What year did you graduate from college?" which threw me. I told him I omitted that date to note age my resume, a practice many HR departments encourage, which earned me a bit of a lecture from the recruiter. In between the interviews I read the reviews and was hesitant, but I continued answering their calls. I then had a phone interview with the hiring manager. She was friendly, but used assumptive language, which I took as a good sign. I was told I would hear back from the second recruiter on next steps. After all of the surprise interviews, etc, I received an automated, do-not-reply email stating I was not qualified for the position. A denial is fine, but after five or six interviews (all but one not having been scheduled) I would assume an actual email response would be most appropriate. Clearly I was mistaken, but were the reviews?

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Comcast in November 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter about two weeks after applying. A few weeks later I did a face to face interview at the local office. The interview was shorter and more painless than I was expecting based on other reviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Almost all questions were "tell me about a time" when you overcame obstacles to achieve goals, when you had to use critical thinking, etc.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The base salary is pretty cut and dry from the beginning. The recruiter describes it in your first initial call. Also the interviewer reiterates this during the interview, as does all of the follow up emails in between, so it's really not up for negotiation. But don't expect the hiring process to be quick. My month and a half long experience is nothing compared to how long I've read it can take so be patient.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Comcast (Atlanta, GA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Over the phone screening. Not a fan of the job description. Not big on door to door sales because lets be honest if somebody comes knocking on your door chances are your going to ignore it. The also took forever to et back to me and I accepted a way better offer from another company that is located in Atlanta.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Comcast in August 2016.

    Interview

    First thing I did was apply online . The following day I was contacted to set up an in person interview . This process was two weeks long . I was then interviewed by one of the hiring managers, and then the following week by the same following manager, and another person.

    The job seemed as if it was trying to force you to make money on their terms in regards to your own. I still love the job, however I feel that some of the questions were way too personal .

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Comcast (Saint Paul, MN) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process took a while... I'd say an month or more... but very relaxed. I was approached by a recruiter... I had to take an hour long assessment, interview over phone, schedule a 1 on 1 interview; it was relax and more about the company and position. Afterwards, I have to go through another one with a different supervisor for interview. Once completed and offered a position, I have to respond to email and complete normal hiring process. All I could say, be honest and sell yourself (confidence, trust, and great attitude). You're being interviewed by a your future direct boss!

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Comcast (Jacksonville, FL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Was an easy interview. Seemed like they were trying to sell the job more than disqualify candidates. Semed like it was a canned process and they were trained to interview this way.
