    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Glenview, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at SurePayroll (Glenview, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I initially applied through LinkedIn, and was redirected to the Surepayroll website where I applied directly for the position, I received an email from an Paychex recruiter a day later, looking to schedule some time to talk about my experience and the position! He apparently liked me and was moved along to the next step which was a phone interview with the District manger, and was sent a test to take, to see if I fit the culture. Next step was an in person interview, and that was two interviews with two different DSM's, moved to the next step which was a real live job shadow with two different top reps and then a final interview that same day with the sales manager, and I was offered the position on spot after the interview, so having patients and sticking around pays off!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at SurePayroll (Glenview, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Rec'd a call from a Recruiter, great lady very nice. She scheduled a face to face interview with a DSM. Face to Face interview lasted around 40 mins, typical interview questions. The DSM had 2 pages of questions, kind of bounced around the questions. DSM gave off a feeling he wanted the "text book" answer to his questions. When giving an answer that wasn't "normal" it showed on his face.

    The DSM said the have a "Blackout Period" no Time Off from December to end of February, soon as they said that I had no interest in the position.

    Interview Questions

    • primarily behavioral interview.....but be prepared for questions you may not expect.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The opportunity was great but the base pay was at the poverty level. We'll below the living wage for the Chicago metro area. Commission sounded very attractive but I know very we'll that commission structures change. If the base was more competitive or negotiable I would have accepted. Most people would be unable to support themselves off the base salary alone.

    Probably a great job for someone right out of college that doesn't have a lot of experience and no other financial responsibility.
