    Interview

    I found the position and applied through Linked In. The interview process was an easy process and very straight forward. I had two phone call interviews followed by one in person interview. The process did not take too long over the span of about a month. The in person interview was similar to the phone call.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Pierre Fabre (Las Vegas, NV).

    Interview

    The interview was brief but thorough. Because my previous experience was with the company the process of them getting to know me and my skills was all but a formality. I was a perfect fit for the position because I not only knew all the internal processes but also had already developed a relationship with many of the existing cliental. Also, having a bachelor's degree provided me with the ability to communicate with the cliental in a more professional manner. I also have an extensive understanding of the processes and requirements around contract manufacturing and also homeopathic products. The interview was more about my willingness to increase the travel and also attend many more conferences and lecture about how Sante Active is providing quality products in the natural products industry.

    Interview

    Worst experience of my life.
    Applied on October, then been reached by mail from HR one month later. They told me that i have been selected for next step and they would plan interviews very soon.
    Waited for another month, then i send a mail to ask when interviews will start. They answered me that the hiring process is still ongoing. 1 month later, i got third mail to tell me that i was refused because of my performance at interviews. BUT I have never had an interview with them.
    Really don't understand how they hire people. They treated me with no respect.

    délégué commercial Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pierre Fabre.

    Interview

    Processus de recrutement très froid dès le départ.
    Ainsi, pour un poste proposé en cdd de 6 mois, on est un peu décontenancé alors que l'on est juste dans l'ascenseur.
    On se dit que ça va peut-être s'arranger ensuite...
    Mais, ça n'a pas été le cas.
    On m'explique que la société est en pleine restructuration. Le poste n'est donc sensiblement pas reconductible.
    De plus, une autre personne arrive dans la salle en plein entretien et me pointe 3 minutes après sans tact que j'ai un tic car je fais plusieurs fois euh.
    C'est la première fois que j'entends ça en entretien.
    Je ne sais pas quel est le but des entretiens chez Pierre Fabre si ce n'est de ne pas mettre à l'aise leurs interlocuteurs pour sensiblement les tester ?! J'ai senti juste que l'on prenait plaisir à me casser du sucre sur le dos. Je n'étais pas là pour ça mais pour le poste.

    On me demande ensuite c'est quoi pour moi un bon commercial ?
    Je réponds que pour moi un bon commercial c'est quelqu'un qui est à l'écoute de ses clients, qui va savoir les écouter et répondre à leurs besoins, les guider etc mais plus une réponse lié au comportement de celui-ci.
    On me stoppe et on me dit que je ne sais pas ce que sait un bon commercial car je n'ai pas parlé de chiffres.
    (Je suis commerciale depuis plus de deux ans et j'ai encore de très bon contact avec mes clients qui sont du cac40 mais sûrement).
    Après ça, il s'est levé, il a dit qu'il serait dans une autre salle. Il s'est tourné vers moi et m'a dit mademoiselle bonne continuation en me serrant la main.

    Recruteurs, décrivez que vous voulez des requins en tant que commercial et non des personnes qui vont faire la joie de vos clients et qui vont par conséquent contribuer au bon développement de l'entreprise dans laquelle vous travaillez vous aussi.
    Le chiffre c'est bien mais l'humain et le business c'est mieux. Les deux sont compatibles.
    S'il n'y a pas d'humain il n'y aura plus de chiffre.
    Ce genre de chose ne dure qu'un temps.

    Cette expérience va rester dans mes anecdoctes.
    J'ai vraiment trouvé ça dommage car le manager que j'avais rencontré dans mon premier entretien était quelqu'un pour qui j'avais envie de travailler, de me dépasser et qui m'inspirait confiance.
    Auparavant dans mes expériences passées, j'ai dû faire face à des clients qui n'étaient pas faciles mais ici j'ai trouvé que ça manquait tout simplement d'humanité.

    J'ai préféré ne pas attendre que l'on revienne vers moi même si vu la réponse de ce monsieur c'était visiblement une réponse négative, j'ai préféré interrompre le processus de recrutement.
