    Sales Executive Interview

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lyreco (Leeds, England (UK)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Very long & in-depth. I had a telephone interview, a video interview, 1st face-to-face interview, a trial day & then a 2nd face-to-face interview with someone who new nothing about the previous steps and got my name wrong. The process went very well up until the 2nd interview. It's good to have a trial day as you get to see if the role is for you.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lyreco in May 2018.

    Interview

    Long winded, phone interview, then face to face, day out in the field, followed by a final face to face interview, needs to be a shorter process. wouldn't be too bad if a job was offered but to do 4 stages to hear a no is a bit much

    Field Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lyreco.

    Interview

    First interview with ASM, then a day in the field and the a final interview with SASM if they have the common courtesy to show up and not send someone else.
    All this process could well be pointless though. You can have bags of experience and be well suited to the role, go on the day in field and cold call straight away get past everything and be down to yourself and one other candidate. this candidate may have no experience in cold calling, no experience dealing with existing customers not have a clue about the geographics of the area and clearly be a bad choice for the role, however its a young woman whos very pleasing to the eye and its a pervert whos taking the interview. you will lose.
    Go to one of their many competitors, they have better reviews from customers and the margins are not as high so you wont feel like your ripping people off.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lyreco (Antwerp (Belgium)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Eerst krijg je een persoonlijkheid test ,zonder enkele e-mail of bericht van iemand, plots moet je een test doen voor 1 uur. Misschien dan zou je voor eerste gesprek moeten komen, maar dit ook alleen met e-mail dus niemand heeft idee over jou salaris verwachtingen of andere vragen.

    Interview Questions

    • Aan de spot “cold call” oefeningen,zonder product of bedrijf info. Simpele vragen over sterke en verbeter punten. Eigenlijk hadden ze moeten gewoon mij even bellen en mijn salaris info vragen , zou ik nooit daar naar toe rijden. Ik voelde al dat de sollicitatie snel af was, waarschijnlijk door mijn hoge salaris wensen en misschien niet succesvolle cold call moment   1 Answer
