    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lowell, MA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Johnstone Supply (Lowell, MA).

    Interview

    Had a very good interview with the general manager of a few locations. He and I hit it off really well and I was able to learn more about this company. They are very well established and they seem to do things the right way. I felt very comfortable speaking with him and he was very interested to learn about me. Like I said it went very well and we hit it off, great guy. Things didn't work out for other reasons but it was a good experience overall.

    Solutions Specialist Interview

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The interview process was strange, as they were explaining the position, I could clearly see the company doesn't have a solid sales process system in place. One of the 3 guys that interviewed me seemed a bit defensive at times as If I was going to take his job. The same guy also got into a minor disagreement with his colleague during the interview. All in all, very strange experience and interview, they certainly aren't going to hire someone with more experience than themselves, perhaps I should have played dumb!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Johnstone Supply (Colorado Springs, CO) in July 2016.

    Interview

    They have a structured interview process that involves meeting with different employees from the organization throughout the different stages. This is a good way to meet the key individuals you are going to work with and a great opportunity to ask pertinent questions. I suggest you come prepared to ask some questions and also be prepared to answer questions of your own.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Johnstone Supply (Farmingdale, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was an easy interview. The interviewer did most of the talking about the company and position.

    However, she then sent me an assessment which was extremely difficult and time consuming (lots of math, personality questions and vocabulary). It took over an hour to do it. The math was college level math and not my strength.

    After the hour long assessment no one got back to me, not even a declination letter.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Johnstone Supply (Portland, OR) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Very brief. Person conducting interview had a golf game scheduled. Felt my time was wasted as interviewer was more interested in his tee time than doing an actual interview. Really felt confused and blown away after leaving interview at the total lack of professionalism. Seemed like a "good old boy" culture. Said he'd email me. It never happened. I was no longer interested in working there after the experience.
