    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.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • All very rote- basic sales interview questions.

      Tell me about how you manage your territory?
      Describe a time when you were able to expand sales within an existing account
      How do you prospect?
      What does your initial appointment with a prospect look like?   Answer Question
