    Associate Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Franklin, MA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I am in school so the process took about two months I would say. First phone interview is standard phone interview with a recruiter, standard questions. The next phone interview is more challenging with a director of sales, they ask you questions about why sales and some behavioral questions. The final interview is a group interview which you go in at 8 am. From their you get to ask questions current Inside Sales Reps for thirty minutes. After that you have a process which you sell a fellow interviewee for a minute to management. After this you begin your interviews, one is about culture, one is about if you can sell, and one is about are you smart enough to learn their product. All of them are thirty minutes, and one you have to sell an EMC product which you learn about a couple days before so do your research. You also get lunch.

    Upgrade Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Draper, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Draper, UT) in February 2016.

    Interview

    It was short, and I only interviewed with one person. They were more concerned with how I "fit in" than with my technical skills. I guess that is how it goes sometimes...anyway, I do not even use the technical skills that I was interviewed about. My recruiter played the job up as something I had experience doing and really wanted to get back into. On the other side of the door, however, I find myself doing completely proprietary work and know that I am not developing any marketable skills at all. I will have a hard time finding work when I leave, but I still intend on leaving ASAP.

    Associate Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EMC (Franklin, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward interview, STAR questions, less technical interview as it was for a position in sales rather than say something in engineering or finance. Broken down over the course of 6 hours, starting with a panel, followed by a short group interview, then three 1:1 interviews with management. Looking for examples on how you can help the team rather than just listing reasons why you're a good candidate, etc. Looking for more experience than I had in the position but very exciting opportunity none the less.
