    Sales Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hanson's (Kalamazoo, MI) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Got called by a recruiter to come in and interview for a sales position with a set schedule. Brought in my resume, went to the building. I filled out a small personality quiz on one of their computers, then went in for an "interview," I suppose.

    The manager seemed disinterested and was just recruiting warm bodies. Didn't make you feel like you desired or wanted to work there at all. The job is 100% commission, which I was fine with, but I just wasn't feeling a good situation coming out of this.

    The recruiter misled me from the beginning. The hours he/she said were not what was discussed at the interview, and the manager didn't seem to care. No thanks. I walked out with an offer and have not taken it.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ann Arbor, MI

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hanson's (Ann Arbor, MI) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview starts with a 30+ question personality test on a computer. Then you head into the interview where they tell you the job that was listed online isn't actually the job you're applying for. The $35,000/yr base salary they listed is actually closer to $19,000/yr. The sales job they said isn't a door-to-door job actually IS a door-to-door sales job with a different title. Unless you're looking to be a door-to-door salesman for windows, this isn't the place for you.

    Field Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hanson's (Detroit, MI) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Worst interview ever. Wanted resume but said resumes were a bunch of B.S. Very unprofessional...even used the F word during it. Appears that they mass hire and see who sticks. Sales are independent contractors. They will give you draw pay but you have to pay it back if you do not stay 6 months. If sales are the heart of the business and these are their policies, it is shamefull. Anyone who is willing to drive 60 miles to their appointment, work crazy hours and pass the tests is hired and sent to training.

    Reasons for Declining

    I am a hard worker who expects respect. Anyone that goes on about the B.S. of a resume and uses a lot of profanity when interviewing certainly throws us a red flag. 1099 status shows they don't give a hoot about their field people.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hanson's in May 2009.

    Interview

    Hanson's had a "Job Fair" with about 30 potential employees. They asked the participants to break into 3 group depending on the job they wanted sales, canvassing or customer service. I went into sales and was given a personality test that I Was told "meant nothing" It does however; unless you score inspriational motivational or persuasive you are automatically not hired, this happened to one of the people in my group. After that I had an interview with the sales manager and was hired.

    Interview

    Obviously the interview process was way to easy, they're always hiring, they'll hire anyone who is willing to spend their own money on chasing down down junk garbage leads.

    Interview Questions

    • They didnt ask any hard questions because they just want you to goto work for them, they used to offer a training pay but no longer do.   Answer Question

    I would keep looking if you want a real job this is a meat market grind house.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hanson's (Kalamazoo, MI) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Brought me into the interview room while 2 other salespersons hung out and chit chatted. Didn't ask me any probing questions. Anytime I tried to tell him about myself, he cut me off. Immediately began explaining the hours and compensation (speaking at break-neck speed). Instantly offered me a job without knowing anything about me.

    This place is clearly a meat grinder. They'll hire anyone willing to drive to appointments.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hanson's (Lansing, MI) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Just stop into a satelite office and request an application. First step you have to take a Personality Test on a computer depending on the results of the test if your were given an on the spot interview with the Sales Manger. If you failed the Personality Test then No Interview would be given and not hired.

    Don't Fall Into the Hype that you are going to make alot of money possible 6-figures is false. Expect only 20-30k. You will write many deals and the customer gets financed turned down because of credit so you make zero money and drive all over creation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hanson's (Troy, MI) in July 2015.

    Interview

    There was a large group of about 20 people. They interviewed us individually and then if you were a good fit, had us do a personality test and application on the computer. They called me back the same day to say I was moving forward in the process. I then had to do a full day of shadowing a current sales rep.
