    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Memphis, TN
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Sharp Electronics (US) (Memphis, TN).

    Interview

    The questions were largely aptitude/ knowledge based. I don't recall any behavioral questions.
    I arrived on time but I was made to fill out an application while waiting for about an hour and a half for the interviewers to join me.
    The most senior interviewer made some lukewarm comments throughout the conversation, and eventually he got irritated with me when I asked him to clarify one of his questions.
     He seemed like the type of person that expected respect simply because he was the boss; like he was doing me a favor by simply being there. I was not given the impression that he would be a good person to work for.
    In the end, I was disqualified because of a technicality; something that could have easily been overlooked if they really wanted me. Overall, I do not feel as if I have missed a good opportunity.

    Territory Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sharp Electronics (US) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed at Sharp Business Systems in Alpharetta, GA. Met with one of the sales managers, who was very candid and upfront and offered to sit down with me and explain their hiring process. He did not want to waste my time or their time and I thought that was pretty refreshing because an interview rarely starts out that way. The interviewer explained that they were looking for aggressive salespeople that would be selling 100% copiers (!) throughout a zip coded territory in the North Atlanta are. The work would involve 100% cold calls and building a business throughout the territory. The base salary was extremely low for someone of my sales background, which includes about 15 years of account management sales. Even with the first year projected commissions, the total compensation would not come close to equalling my current base salary. The interviewer told me that it would take 3 to 5 years to build up a respectable six-figure salary. I asked the interviewer if anyone at Sharp had bothered to read my resume and that their starting salary is not competitive for 2017. It was amazing to me that a world-class organization such as Sharp would offer such a meager starting salary for qualified salespeople. I thanked the interviewer for being so upfront and honest, but this was a really a cleverly disguised entry level sales position for college graduates who want to start out in sales and start building their resume. I regret that I wasted my time on this company interview, but I am grateful to the interviewer for not sugarcoating a very strenuous, low paying/high turnover sales opportunity. The interviewer offered to take me through the hiring process if I had been interested, but I declined because there are more respectable sales organizations out there that pay a competitive wage for experienced salespeople.
