    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!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at National Federation of Independent Business in May 2016.

    Interview

    Went through a 30 minute phone interview with recruiter and was called back for a face to face interview a week later.

    Interviewers were nice enough, I didn't get much of a chance to put a word in edgewise as they both hammered home the fact that a lot of hours were required to be truly "sucessful" at the job.

    Reasons for Declining

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National Federation of Independent Business (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Bob Carlton flew from out of state and met me in Los Angeles for the interview. We Spoke for an hour or so in the lobby of his hotel. The questions we're pretty basic and he didn't ask any really hard questions. Just be prepared to have a role play and remember when he says no to ask "do you believe in NFIB?" You'll do great!

    B2B Sales Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at National Federation of Independent Business (Worcester, MA).

    Interview

    I received an email from a recruiter. I responded. I then had phone interview with the recruiter. I then was given a website where I could research the organization and its product. I then had a few days to prepare a presentation (a 5-minute overview of the company) and present it to the recruiter over the phone. The recruiter stopped me before 5 minutes was up and continued on to more in-depth questioning. He then set up a phone call with a manager at the company. That manager then set up a face-to-face interview with the hiring manager, who then scheduled me to shadow a current rep in the field. Meanwhile, I was emailed the on-boarding paperwork. After my shadow day, I received an email stating that this was not a good fit after all.
