Inside Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at EMC.

Interview

Overall a very positive experience. The first interview was over the phone, then they flew me out to Boston for a day of three individual interviews. Only negative thing is if not offered the position they don't contact you within a week as they say they will and you will most likely have to reach out to them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Franklin, MA).

    Interview

    First call was a screening call, just basic knowledge and questions.
    Second call was with a hiring manager, a little bit more in depth and why EMC/sales.
    Office visit consisted of

    - Q & A with current ISR's
    - an ice breaker where you sell a fellow interviewee to the sales managers
    - 3 one on one interviews with each hiring manager
    - a short role-play using an EMC product with a manager
    - describing converged infastructure

    Overall the process was okay. The phone calls were standard, office was nice and people were awesome. Enjoyed meeting the managers, all very down to earth people. They are definitely very specific in the kind of person they take.

    However, I found the end of the interviews to be extremely unprofessional. They tell you that you will find out within the week but I had to email the recruiter myself a week and a half later to find out that I didn't get an offer ( after following up). Then I scheduled an appointment to go over feedback on why I didn't get the job, and the recruiter rescheduled on me 6 times in a row and on the 6th appointment, just never called me. Extremely unprofessional. Things like this always speak wonders about the company and the kind of people that work there.

    The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at EMC in November 2015.

    Interview

    Had an extensive amount of interviews but it was a very competitive program. The process was good, lot of 1 on 1 interviews. Also have group one as well in which you explain and "sell" why someone else in the group is right for the job. Good experience overall and I thought it was a fair process.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Franklin, MA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Went through an initial phone screening with a recruiter, then had a follow up interview over the phone with a manager. Following those they brought me in with a few other candidates that they were considering for a half day interview. The half day consisted of speaking to an employee panel, an ice breaker exercise where you sell one of the other candidates, a mock sales call, and sitting down with four managers in the office.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Boston, MA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Process was very positive. Started with a casual phone interview with questions surrounding the resume and experiences. Followed by an in person interview in Boston. This included 3 one-on-one interviews over the course of the day. Each interview had a particular theme eliminating redundancies. I also had the opportunity to spend time with someone currently in the position.

    3 behavioral interviews. One of these was with the recruiter and the other was with 2 managers. They were standard interviews and they had some challenging questions. Interviews are centered around finding out someone qualities and why they would be good for sales

    Interview

    The day started off with a group interview where 6 individuals including myself were able to ask current SAs any questions we wished. Then we were asked to conduct a ice breaker activity. After that we were split and each had three 45 min interviews.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EMC (Franklin, MA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Multiple interviews. First round was like speed dating with 9 different managers or employees. Second round was onsite with 2 or 3 of my potential managers. The process was not overly stressful, but if you don't really want the job the interviewer will know and you won't get the job.

    Negotiation

    Not much negotiation. The sales associate phase is short term and the real money with a promotion to an inside sales rep.
