    Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Liverpool, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Phones 4u (Liverpool, England (UK)) in August 2013.

    Interview

    First step was sending in a CV, then I had a telephone interview. This was informal and was more like 2 old friends catching up. Then I was invited to a face-to-face interview with my GSM. He brought along his DM to witness the interview.

    Before I could start I had to wait for a credit check to be completed and then I had to prove any outstanding debts had arrangements in place to pay.

    Interview Questions

    • The only thing to happen that was unexpected was that the interview was a stereotypical job interview "tell me about your previous job" "why did you leave" etc.

      I was asked to talk about a passion of mine though. After being hired I was told that the answer didn't matter and that it was asked to see if I could sound interested in something to see if I could do that when selling phones.  
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I actually had to place the job offer on hold as I was about to go on holiday. Phones 4U was happy to wait for me to return to start my training.

    Interview

    I've received an e-mail informing that i would get a call to arrange a phone interview. Someone called me and we've scheduled the interview for some days later in the morning.
