    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SGN Nutrition (Portland, OR) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Responded to ad on Craigs List, got a call with 72 hours from district manager, went through normal application procedures.

    Next there was training in food handling as required by Costco and sales training which was beneficial and once in the field for a week, got a visit by district manager who saw some glitches in my presentation and made clear a few things that would help and it did.

    Next, I had to get a food handler's license by the state which was $10-$15, can't remember but it was easy to pass, just took time to do it. Sort of a pain but there are people out there that do not have a clue so it's good training.

    Overall, I thought the preparation along with my district managers help and my own initiative boosted me to a satisfying job.

    I'm not in love with the standing part of it but actually taking the products seemed to help.

    Interview Questions

    • Have you been in sales before? What have you been doing past 6 to 12 months, what are your goals... pretty much normal questions/   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation on my part...sort of like, here is a opportunity, do you want to work for us or not? It was not that cold, as they are a great company but it's sort of a no brainer decision for me as I worked for a different company in Costco doing demonstrations and wanted more money and this was an opportunity so I jumped on it.

    I was called and spoken to about what the position entailed, what was expected of me. I was asked questions about my sales abilities, along with many other interview questions.

    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Detroit, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SGN Nutrition (Detroit, MI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted application twice, had to call after that to follow up, spoke on the phone with the manager for over an hour and was hired after answering questions about the job. The problem is that the manager is overwhelmed, and not only struggling to get good people but to also retain them. Once they find out the job is not as posted, they can't make money, they quit.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SGN Nutrition (Virginia Beach, VA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    over the phone, was recommended by another company so had an "in" was told to watch videos and take a joke of an online quiz on the basics of the product and the proper way to set up the demonstration.If you have a breath and a heartbeat you'll get the position. Use this to get to where you really want to be unless you are retired and happy with this. Its my fault for being so complacent to stay here as long as i did.

    Negotiation

    I asked for a dollar more due to my experience and was told that would be fine. It was never reflected in the official offer.
