    Sales Representative Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I was scheduled for a 1.5 hour interview and went in for a 4 hour drawn out process. I met with multiple members of the team. Everyone was nice, but it was very old school. The sales manager asked me some pretty inappropriate questions which were way off base. For me they changed the entire process. I don't think I could work at a place they carrier around a planner.. I'm not sure they know office 365 is around and you can have a mobile calendar. I couldn't foresee myself working for an arrogant sales manager like the one they had in place.
    I followed up 3 times and they said they're still waiting to see who gets the position.. They don't have the stones to say it's not me which is fine .. Trust me.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PCA (Lake Forest, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was brought in for a full day of individual interviewing. Some of the folks I interviewed with did not leave a lasting impression. After a full day of interviewing, I still had to ask questions (of Hiring Manager) at the end of the day to clarify job duties, etc. due to unclear answers throughout day. I did not get a "warm fuzzy" feeling after a day of interviewing. People were all nice enough, but something was off.
