    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Comcast.

    Interview

    The interview process is designed to be 60 minutes but due to an excess of positions opening up, they scheduled me for a 30 minute (actual duration ~26). Two interviewers present throughout; they alternated asking questions and explaining the duties of the role.

    They began by explaining how the interview would be informal and told me to relax. I'm always Leary of this statement because it tends to be a trap. I donned my two piece suit for whatever that's worth.

    Interview Questions

    • Based on your resume, you have very little sales experience. How do you feel you would compensate if given the position?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The base salary was predetermined. The remaining income would be commission based.

    The interviewing process didn't last long and it wasn't in a normal office setting. I had my interview on a couch at Brandsmart USA in Doraville, GA. I met with Tammie the Supervisor and she was very straigh forward about the job but yet rude. She basically told me that how I would be successful is that I should listen to her or else.

    Interview

    The interview process was done through a recruiting firm out of Phoenix. The call was made the day after I submitted my application online. They had me do an online assessment/. I received a call the next day and had a phone interview. The process was pretty quick. However, I did not get the offer right away and I thought I had lost the opportunity. I had a pretty good interview with the Sales Supervisor as well as the Area Manager. But they had just taken a while to get around to sending the information to the recruiting firm. Once I got the offer, everything went smoothly from there.

    Interview Questions

    • There were really no difficult questions. The interviewer just asked the same regular questions. However, they did stress the importance of the job and what it entailed.   Answer Question
