    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Terminix (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    I arrived at the Tampa location on time.

    But I had to wait in a lobby. And waited. And waited.

    The doors to the offices were locked, so I couldn't open any door to announce I was there.

    A few people walked by and made eye contact with me, through the glass.
    I waived to them. But still no one came to welcome me to the interview.

    I went back to my car and called HR who called the Tampa office.

    Twenty minutes after my set time, I was finally invited in.

    It was so awkward, that I had already made up my mind that I didn't want the job.

    The first part of the interview was a lot of name.a specific time when.. scenario type questions. If you are quick at coming up with specific scenarios it should be fairly easy.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Terminix (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    They pretty much will hire anyone that breathes. They have new managers asking you question when they don't know the business themselves. They give you a sheet a paper and have you read it and then you try and sell that to them. You can say the wrong thing and they will still hire you.There is always someone quitting every week so turnover is very high due to lack of help from management

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Terminix.

    Interview

    The interview process is good. You are asked a series of questions by a supervisor, then allowed to sit with a few reps & gain first-hand experience of day-to-day responsibilities before completing the interview process and asking any final questions. Background check and drug test are required as part of the hiring process.

    Interview Questions

    • As long as you are confident and honest in your interview and have at least basic sales skills, you have a good chance at landing the job. It is very straight-forward, and since the turnover rate is average to above-average, the company often hires more associates than necessary.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was not a negotiating process. Inside sales starts at a flat hourly rate, plus commission.
