    B2B Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sandy Springs, Fulton, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Staples (Sandy Springs, Fulton, GA).

    Interview

    I applied online, and about a week later I got a call from a recruiter to schedule a phone screening. The screening went well, and the recruiter told me I was a great candidate for the position and that she would forward my information to the sales manager. A week went by and I hadn't heard anything from the manager. The recruiter called me to let me know that the manager would be going on vacation and, he would set up an interview once he was back in town. Another two weeks go by without any contact from the recruiter or manager. Then I received a generic email stating they were moving forward with other candidates. The whole process was a complete waste of my time.

    B2B Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Staples (Atlanta, GA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I could tell from the email that the recruiter was going to be tough. She asked me very specific questions that would only be applicable to someone who has been in sales for many years, even though Staples doesn't hide the fact that it hires many college graduates for this position. She barely asked me about my background, but when she did, she pretty much made it seem as if my work wasn't relevant. To be clear, I have been in sales and in the field for about three years.
