Brand Sales Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Henderson, NV
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Essilor (Henderson, NV) in May 2017.

Interview

This process was entirely too long and honestly somewhat absurd. It started with a phone screen with an outside recruiter, moved to a video interview through a platform called HireVue, then to a phone interview with the hiring manager, then a phone interview with her boss, then a Gallup assessment for personality/ sales process acumen, and THEN would have moved to an in person interview (and honestly, who knows how many) had I not been offered and accepted another job. Overall poor communication and far too labor intensive of a process for the OTE and limited upside potential of this company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Essilor in March 2017.

    Interview

    It took 14+ days after I applied for anyone to contact me. And the only reason I was contacted was because I sent an email directly to a C level person. The recruiter I spoke with was not prepared. She did not even read my resume and asked the same question repeatedly. This person said they would send me their contact information and it took 48+ hours to do that. She also could not answer any of the questions I asked. Seemed annoyed to be interviewing me

    Reasons for Declining

    Higher management is strict and unbalanced. I would recommend to join another sales division such as their lab side. Better yet, don't apply here.
