    Inside Sales Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials (Carson, CA).

    Interview

    I received a call from HR. I was asked a few questions over the phone, then asked to come in for a one on one. I met with her the following day. Just the standard interview questions. I thought it went well and that we connected. I asked questions about the company as well as a standard day as an Inside Sales Rep. I'm assuming that it's difficult and very competitive to get hired on here.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials (Carson, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Five minute wait in the lobby, where the receptionist offered me water and/or coffee, and had me fill out a form with name, address, phone number, and availability. The interview was super casual, 1:1 with a very friendly corporate recruiter who explained the position, job requirements, told me about the history of the company. She sounded very proud of the establishment, and seemed very happy to be working there. After a couple questions, she had me take a couple of typing speed tests (words and ten-key). She explained the whole thing very well. It was super simple, and straightforward. After she reviewed my results in a couple of minutes, she offered me the position, and then went over salary, training and scheduling, which she had already explained during our earlier phone conversation to set up the interview date. All in all, it took around 20 - 25 minutes, and was a great experience. Fun even.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation, since I was happy with their terms. The only thing I asked was if this position could turn into Full-time, and she said that there's no guarantee, but if something opens up, the seasonal associates are the first ones asked, before looking outside.

    I applied online through indeed. I forgot I had applied and received a call from the manager a month later asking to set up a face to face interview. At the interview she asked basic retail situational questions. The interview went really smooth and felt like a normal conversation. I was notified 2 days later that I got the job. Working for Lakeshore was one of my best jobs ever. I only left because I wanted to receive more hours but the work was easy & the employees are great!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty straight forward. I received a call to come in for an interview the next day after three weeks I applied at the store. I interviewed with two of the managers, the main manager first and then the assistant manager. They asked a couple of questions, some questions were asked by both of the managers. Overall, it wasn't too bad, they were just typical interview questions.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials (Carson, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process went smoothly. Everyone is very nice and welcoming. If you make it to the next portion of the interview that requires excel, DO NOT listen to the person giving you directions. Listen to the instructions on how to do the document, but DO NOT use the internet to search answers. Also, they use a Microsoft Excel program that is extremely old compared to the new program that is out. You might have trouble finding some buttons. I would advise studying an older version.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Lakeshore Learning Materials (Carson, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was one on one. Very easy questions. It almost felt like I was having a conversation with one of my friends.
    They do make you wait a long time before your interview; even if you arrive 15 mins early! There are also plenty of steps to actually get a second interview. They make you take an excel test, but everyone there is super helpful.
