    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at NRG Energy (Austin, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a recruiter in California for an inside sales opportunity in Austin, TX. He lied about the salary. Got to the interview and the manager let me know he hires only college grads. They don't offer health insurance and when I asked what holiday days were paid he didn't know. He also didn't know what Holiday time off one would have if hired. Now I know why they only hire college grads. Only college grads would be dumb enough to accept a position with no benefits. The recruiter also lied to me about the salary. He gave me a range. There is no range. It is a very low salary and the commissions are not very good and you don't get paid on them until deals close which takes a long time. The manager was a nice guy, the work environment was nice downtown, they pay for your parking but no benefits is not worth it. The manager let me know college grads were a dime a dozen and he doesn't have any trouble hiring them.

    Interview Questions

    • There wasn't one. I was overqualified. If you have no sales skills and want to break into sales this is your chance by accepting this entry level position.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Salary is too low, no health insurance, not enough paid holidays, no paid vacation. Comments about hiring only college grads.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NRG Energy (Houston, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I had a 2 1/2 hour interview with four different people, 30 minutes each. The first was with the HR recruiter who was very nice and asked me typical behavioral questions about project management. The next person worked in a team that was looking for the intern and they asked me about my interests and asked me case questions related to the problems the team was facing. The last two people talked about what they did in the team and what the intern would be doing. The interview overall wasn't that bad. It just took a long time to hear a response back. It turns out the company wasn't going through with the internship anymore.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NRG Energy (Staten Island, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    This interview was for the "Mechanical Engineering Intern" position at Arthur Kill Generating Station, Staten Island, NY.

    First there was a phone interview, which was pretty in-depth with Resume review and work-environment related questions.

    The next step was an on-site interview at the power plant.

    First there were some Resume review questions, then followed by a tour of the facility, where we walked through the basic steam cycle of the plant's main unit, all the while going through technical questions about the steam cycle.

    Then I was asked to do a simple measurement task on a piece of equipment, with a provided list of things to measure.

    Next I was asked to solve a basic loading problem for a static system.

    Lastly, I went over a detailed Resume review with the plant manager, and went through all the typical questions like, "Why do you want to work here".

    Interview Questions

    • Give an example of a time when you had to correct someone's safety, and how did they react.   Answer Question
    • Identify this piece of equipment. What does it do? Where does it fall in the steam cycle?   Answer Question
    • What are your biggest strengths/weaknesses?   Answer Question
    • Are you comfortable working in a loud, hot, dusty, and dirty environment? Do you have a fear of heights?   Answer Question
