    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richfield, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Newark Element 14 (Richfield, OH) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted within two days of submitting my resume with a request for a phone interview. Received a call the next day, one hour after the scheduled interview appointment and discussed my previous experience. Was asked to meet with the hiring manager which was scheduled two weeks later. The meeting was one hour of a company presentation followed by a "group project" consisting of two people, having 10 minutes to prepare and present. Four candidates attended and four managers interviewed, each interviewing one candidate. I was given a script to learn of a make believe product, again in 10 minutes, then taking a sales call from the manager assigned to me, pretending to be a client. I was told that after this three hour event, the manager's would sit down to discuss the best candidate. Not sure how this is determined to be effective when each manager interviews only one candidate. I received a generic decline email the next day from Farnell, not from the person I had been corresponding with, signed "HR" and it thanked me for submitting my resume. This is not a professional way of communication after having two interviews. I'm not sure if they hired any of the other three but the job was re-posted the following week.

    Their stock went from $45.00 dollars on a down swing and stated no raises or bonuses were going to be given for a while. Then the interviewee went on to say that I would be in charge of people in other countries but probably would never see them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Newark Element 14.

    Interview

    They give a group tour and then you do a group project where you pretend it's a clothing store and you have to fix the customer service issues. What this has to do with the actual job, who knows, but it's easy. Then you do an individual interview with behavior questions and a sales test where you have to sell pop, juice or water.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Newark Element 14 (Chicago, IL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    One hour telephone interview with hiring manager, three hour on-site interview with team. Never heard back, not even a "thank you for your time." I had to take the day off for such a long on-site interview and would have appreciated hearing back even if it was bad news.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Newark Element 14 (Richfield, OH).
