    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Delta Foremost Chemical (Des Moines, IA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed in person at a local hotel for the sales position. I was called back and scheduled for a second in person interview. Called back a third time and asked if I would be interested in accepting position. I accepted and returned to hotel to fill out all necessary forms for employment. Had to take several timed test to measure my ability to compare, calculate and comprehend perplex questions. I had to fill out a for to be bonded for the company's benefit. The bond application asked a lot of personal financial questions that I was uncomfortable answering. As I took the timed test, my references were being contacted and background check was cleared.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Delta Foremost Chemical.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter a week before her arrival to set up appointment for interview. Recruiter stayed at nicer hotel that actually had a conference table in her hotel room where we conducted the interview. Most thorough interview process that I've ever attended. First day there were several other candidates there before and after I finished my interview. I was called back for a second interview. This interview was a bit more in depth. The recruiter was very professional. She went above and beyond to give me a clear idea of what the job expectation would be.
    It was a straight commission position, which I was used too. They also offered to cover 1/2 the cost of promo items to give to customers. Coming from a straight commission job before this was a huge plus for me, as most straight commission jobs require the reps to foot the bill alone for these items.
    I was called back for a 3rd interview. This day I took a test. More of just a common sense test.
    4th day I was offered the position. I was able to speak with several other reps and even one of the owners to make sure I had all my questions answered.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Delta Foremost Chemical in June 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a manager from another territory, because the local manager position was open. I believe there's a lot of turn over with this company. Originally the meeting was scheduled for a conference room, but was changed to a hotel room without any notice. I felt more comfortable when he left the room door open. He offered an explanation of the position requirements and seemed like a nice fellow and was easy to speak with.
    They require reps to offer promotional items and free gifts to prospects and pay for 1/2. They do not reimburse expenses, but will reduce your W2 income at the end of the year by your total expenses. I've never heard of a process like that and would expect them to cover 100% of the cost of their promotional items to be covered by them. They also indicated they can't offer discounts of their products to be competitive, but the rep can offer free products (that the rep pays for) to win the sale. They invited me to a second interview, but I declined.

    Interview

    Very detailed but pertinent information about salary left out of initial interview process. I was told about the company, what products they sold, how they train their employees to be successful, perks of sales including company sponsored trips, what the territory is, and asked questions about my background in outside sales and how I would handle certain situations with clients.

    Interview

    It was a very pleasant experience for the first interview. We talked about the territory and what is expected of each sales rep. We didn't discuss salary or benefits because I was told it's for the second interview.I liked how they work with reps to not move or even help them if they have to move.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Delta Foremost Chemical in December 2011.

    Interview

    this was one of the best interviews ever been on; very informative; relaxed. Co. is very transparent; no surprises, an open book. Hiring person goes into great detail about job requirement. They even allow you to speak w/ a couple of their sales reps whom are open as well. Very professional and up front. Nobody tries to sell you; they simply educate you.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    suggest allowing the interview process to run its course; all question get answers in due process. Many of the things mentioned in a previous review simply are not true. While they do ask for a decision by weeks end, if you receive an offer, you have plenty of info to make your decision w/o pressure.
