Inside Sales Representative Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Seattle, WA) in November 2016.

Interview

Very long and time consuming. They made me come up with a Business Case on a new customer that isn't currently selling on Amazon. I believe I was over qualified, BUT THEY WON'T TELL YOU WHY YOU DIDN'T GET THE JOB?

Interview Questions

  • Let me a time when..... What was your worst mistake and how did you overcome.... When did you go against your boss.....   Answer Question

    Interview

    Very warm, comfortable. The HR recruiter was unaware that I had been interviewed before (and not hired) and felt she had not done her homework. It was about a ten minute phone interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I found the listing on glassdoor and applied through the Thomson Reuters website on a Tuesday morning. I received an email within about an hour requesting a pre-screen phone interview, which we set up for the next day. The phone interview consisted of very typical questions and a summary of the role with one of their Talent Acquisition Specialists. At the end of the phone interview, we scheduled an in-person interview for Friday afternoon. The interview lasted about an hour. It was a behavioral interview with two of the sales managers. Pretty standard questions. Monday morning I received a call that they wanted to set up a second Role Play interview. We set up the interview for Wednesday afternoon and I was given some information about the products and scenarios to study. After the role play, where I carried out a sales call with of the hiring managers, they had me assess myself and we went over any final questions. I received a call the next morning just before 8am letting me know they wanted to make an offer. The process was very quick and easy, although I spent a lot of time preparing for the interview and role play, so it might be more difficult if not properly prepared.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Fort Worth, TX) in August 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring process has gotten more difficult in the last year. Employees are put through several interviews. The questions are all behavioral, so be sure to look those up to be prepared. You will also sit with a sales representative so you can get a good idea of what you'll be doing. This is also part of the interview. Act interested. Ask questions of them too.
