Outside Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
No Offer
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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Lawson Products (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Met the Sales Manager in his hotel room. This is where he conducted the interview which was strange to say the least. I understand that they do not have an office in the area but it would of been more professional in the lobby/breakfast area of the hotel.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic 101 interview questions but tried to sell me on their product line, as if he was closing the sale. From what the recruiter informed me about the job duties and salary was very far off from reality.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Phone interview! Talked about the importance of service over price and what the territory was like, how would you handle a customer that is very price aware.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Lawson Products (Fresno, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Didn't make it past the first phone interview because the pay was too low for what I needed.
    Base is approx. 30K and commission they said would take the first year to approx. 50-60K. After 9 month the base would start to decrease and after 36 months you would operate only on commission.
    Overall the HR lady was very nice and upfront. No hard feelings.

    Reasons for Declining

    Not enough base

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lawson Products (Chicago, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Informative and professional phone interviews, spoke with three separate members of the company before I was officially offered a position. Everyone welcomed me to the Lawson Family with supportive and open arms. They encouraged me to call people in the organization with any questions before I accepted the offer. Then did a ride along with other sales reps in the area to get a feel for how the company works and what is expected of their employees.
