    Marketing Associate (Sales Representative ) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sysco (Raleigh, NC) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Had a brief 30 minute phone interview with a recruiter from corporate HR. She asked questions including "what are your greatest strengths and weaknesses," "describe your ideal job," and "tell me about your greatest achievement." About a week later I had a series of three hour long interviews with three different sales managers. There were thirteen candidates being interviewed by ten different managers. Each manager I interviewed with was asking questions directly from a corporate interview guide. They asked the questions and took notes. There was little variation from script aside from the exchange of war stories. Questions included "tell me one thing you did that was over and above," "name a time when you had to persuade someone to do something," and "describe a time when you made a mistake in a sales call and what did you do to overcome your mistake."
