Sales Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sears (River Falls, WI) in August 2012.

Interview

Very informal. Owner and manager didn't really have a set interview process, however, they are salesmen by trade and know what to look for. Didn't bother with the repetitive, typical interview questions. More interested i knowing expierences and background information than "what did you when..." or "tell me about a time when..."

Interview Questions

  • For the first time, there were no hard or difficult "trap" questions. It was more conversation than Q&A   Answer Question

Negotiation

I tried to ask for more money, but they stuck to their guns saying they start everyone at the same wages for 90 days, then do a review and will discuss a wage increase at that time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sears.

    Interview

    You go through a fairly long and bizarre online questionnaire, and if you answer the odd questions the right way you are offered an interview and have to pick the time. You show up, maybe you are expected, maybe not.

    Interview Questions

    • They don't ask if you are willing to work for very little money and no benefits. They don't want to know.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sears (Plano, TX).

    Interview

    Walked in with resume, chatted with manager who was half my age for about 5 minutes. Was offered the job. Not very professional, but par for the course. Since my hiring, I have seen one other employee hired, where he had to role play. Manager pretended that they wanted to purchase appliances and had the employee sell items on the spot.
