Field Sales Representative Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at National Federation of Independent Business (Irvine, CA) in March 2017.

Interview

Did two interviews over the phone-one with the in-house headhunter, the other one with the regional manager and took a personality test (which was surprisingly in line with my perceived strengths/weaknesses)-then I did a ride-along with the area representative. Ride along was very instructive-they are selling memberships in a business advocacy group that is very needed; yet the ride-along was insightful in how they had to misrepresent themselves to get in the door. Dubious tactics for a noble cause-not my cup of tea. After ride-along there was no way I could work for this outfit. Their product is needed and noble-they don't need deceptive tactics to sell it!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at National Federation of Independent Business (Detroit, MI) in February 2016.

    Interview

    This was a telephone pre screen rather than a full interview. A follow up interview is required to move forward with the process. The pre screen dealt with basic questions about your personal experience. The interviewer was very helpful answering all questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National Federation of Independent Business in December 2009.

    Interview

    I had to do a personality test first, and according to how they score you on your test they determine if you are right to do this position, then I was contacted for a personal interview and was hired on the spot. Most of the people are professional however, what I was promised as far as territory and amount of renewals wasn't even close to what was promised in the interview.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    It is straight commission, so there is no negotiating other than there is flexibility in the territory that they will assign to you
