Sales Representative Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Connelly (CA) (San Diego, CA) in September 2015.

Interview

The interview:

I applied online, and was called in for an interview shortly thereafter. The entire interview process took was spread over two days. The first interview only lasted about ten minutes and seemed more of a test of whether you could follow directions and carry on a conversation - they told you to bring a copy of your resume and then asked pretty standard interview questions. When you're invited to the next interview, it is a full-day job shadow of one of the other sales representatives followed by a second short interview. I found the job shadow a really good indicator of what the job would be.

The job:

This is the perfect job for anyone who wants an entry-level job with basically no requirements. It's a lot better than other sales jobs because you're going around to businesses helping them with their AT&T service - something they actually need. The management seems very supportive of whatever it is you want out of the job. If you want a job that provides quick money and then quit after a week or two, they're fine with that. If you want to invest more time and make the job your first step towards your career, they can help you get there.

My advice:

Go to the job shadow if you're unsure about the company! I wasn't sure whether to go or not, and I am really glad I did - the person I shadowed really opened up about what it was like to work there, the opportunity, what other people got out of the job, etc. Some of the employees don't have a college degree, some have a high school degree, some have a bachelor's. I graduated from a small liberal arts school with a degree in economics, and initially looked down on an opportunity like this. After shadowing, though, I realized that everyone has to start somewhere, and sales experience (while not glamorous) provides a good opportunity to improve your interpersonal skills. I say, give this company a chance - and if you don't like it, you can quit after a week or two.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Connelly (CA) (San Diego, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    First interview: 5 minutes with the owner. Very basic expectation from you.
    Second interview within 48 hours: A full day in the field with another employee. Could be a total rookie, that will play "indifferent and friendly" with you, meaning he will pretend they don't really need you necessarily, however will try to buy your trust and to get you to like him. During the morning, you will get to see how a typical day looks like (door to door sales), then at lunch time he will go over their very vague comp plan. Then more door to door. Then around 2-3pm will drive you back to the office and prepare you for a super-simple quiz to see you remember what he showed/explained you. An monkey IQ would suffice.

    Interview Questions

    • First interview is whatever.
      Second interview: What Do you know about direct marketing, AT&T, Uverse, and a lot of questions about you to keep you feeling that you're still being interviewed, to keep you on your toes. It's a posture game.   Answer Question
