Inside Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Plano, TX
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett Packard Enterprise | HPE (Plano, TX) in April 2016.

Interview

Interviewed with a recruiter via phone, then went to a hiring manager via phone and finally a panel f2f. Overall the interview process was very lacking; the hiring manager clearly read the questions from a script and didn't seem to care to "sell me" why HPE nor the role. It wouldn't seem that he would be a good manager or be motivating as an employee, bad experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett Packard Enterprise | HPE (Plano, TX).

    Interview

    First got a call from a recruiter who asked about my experience and asked pretty general questions. Next step was phone interview with a manager which was more in depth. Next step was a in-person interview with a panel of managers which I think which was pretty intimidating but they were very nice and made it more relaxed.

    Initially contacted by recruiter via email and was told he would call me the next day and when that rolled around it was a different person. Went through a series of detailed interview questions, tell me about a time, what's your biggest weakness, etc. Contacted by scheduler next day and went in for an interview the following week. Got an email same day saying that I got the job.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett Packard Enterprise | HPE in February 2016.

    Interview

    Straight forward interview questions at first with HR and Hiring Manager. Invited back for round robin interviews with other stakeholders in the company. Made an offer the next day and I accepted a week afterwards. Everyone throughout the process was very excited about the new direction of the company and believed in the long-term vision of the CEO and leadership.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett Packard Enterprise | HPE (Conway, AR) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for this position January 2016, I had a 30 minute conversation with an internal recruiter in Conway, AR.A week later I had another conversation with a sales manager in Plano, TX who later emailed me to schedule a Skype interview with two hiring managers. The hiring managers were late to the Skype interview and they could not connect their video due to "technical issues" so they ended up calling me on my cell phone. After about 10 minutes one of the managers left the call and I continued with the other for about 30 minutes. After all of this, I sent a follow up thanking them for their time. My email was ignored and I never received an offer or rejection email or phone call. After speaking with four different people at this company I felt at least one of them would have had the courtesy to let me know that I was no longer a candidate for this position. The process was surprisingly unprofessional for a company of this size.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Hewlett Packard Enterprise | HPE (Plano, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly quick and easy. Since I was applying to a position that required me to move to a different state, the entire interview process was done over the phone. First was a phone interview with a recruiter, it was a very conversational type interview and relaxed. The second interview was also over the phone with someone else more focussed on hitting numbers and making money.

    Interview

    Received phone call from recruiter. I was very excited about this interview and I felt very let down. I felt that the purpose of the phone call was not to interview me, but to accuse me of not being passionate about sales...I felt I had to spend my time defending myself and my intentions instead of being able to interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Hewlett Packard Enterprise | HPE in November 2015.

    Interview

    I began speaking with Hewlett Packard Enterprises after networking with their representatives at a Sales Competition in Orlando. The first interview was a basic phone interview which was informational and casual followed by a skype interview with a board of managers. The managers I interviewed were all very friendly and helpful, it seemed like they wanted me to get the job when I was interviewing and they gave me all the resources I needed in order to succeed.
