    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lawson Products (Elizabeth, NJ).

    Interview

    Had open house at a hotel with a ton of applicants scheduled every hour. Met one on one with the hiring sales manager. He made it clear they were doing interviews today to narrow down the applicants and bringing back the finalists tomorrow. The interview lasted about an hour and they asked your typical interview questions about your previous employment. They were definitely looking for an experienced outside sales person who is skilled in making cold calls, and developing a new territory from scratch.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They made a very fair offer so I did not negotiate .

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Lawson Products (Las Vegas, NV) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Met at hotel and the manager seemed like a great guy. He was not a manager that operated in Las Vegas but would be my boss's boss. It went well....I just don't think that the base salary was high enough for someone with my level of sales experience. Maybe Next time they can have a major account executive position or a senior level position
