    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PDI (San Antonio, TX) in November 2015.

    I had to pass a general phone screen to check qualifications before being advanced to a face to face interview. A DM and ABD interviewed me together in the face to face. They asked typical interview questions and then had me read over a fictitious product and role play a sales pitch. It was a one interview process with a hire coming a few days later.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PDI (Dallas, TX) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Starts off with a recruiter calling you and telling you about the position, during which they will ask you a few basic resume questions to screen. Then they set up a face-to-face interview with the district manager you will be working with, usually a week later. During the f2f, DM asked me to do a presentation on a made up inhaler sales piece that he had; gave me a minute to study. Other than that, it was mostly situational questions (STAR format) and resume questions. After interview, recruiter called back to tell me I had another phone interview with regional manager. That was more a meet and greet phone interview. Manger spent most of the time explaining the position (I was pretty confident I was getting the job at that point).
