    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Memphis, TN

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UniFirst (Memphis, TN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was, as I had read, a bit more cumbersome than one would expect. There was an initial interview with both the sales manager and branch manager together, then a follow-up during which I had to give a presentation on material I was given (to test my "stage presence" and comprehension ability). Following that, there were two phone interviews, one of which was much more in depth (quite enjoyable, actually) before I was done with the process and received an offer. None of the interviews were onerous, few of the questions were redundant, and I was able to get a very good feel for the people for whom I would be working during the process, so I knew it would be a good fit from my perspective; my interviewers knew that I was interviewing them, too, and were very forthcoming in offering information and explaining how thing actually worked in the real world, versus just giving me an idealized picture that was all rosy. I accepted the position because I liked what I heard and now that I am into the rather extensive training, I am eager to start selling.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at UniFirst.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email about a week afterwards. Had initial phone screen interview and then moved on to video conference interview. Asked to come in for shadowing day to follow route driver through a regular day. First sign something was off occurred when I showed up to the UniFirst location at the time I was told (5:30am) and could not find anyone. After finally flagging down an employee I got inside the building. At the end of the route I came back to the UniFirst location where I spoke with several managers. I was told I would be contacted regarding possible next steps soon. The next email I received was a rejection email. When asked for any possible reasons why I was told I showed "less interest and eagerness" than other candidates. I took an entire day off of my current job (therefore forfeiting the opportunity to make any money that day) and performed every task asked of me with the route driver throughout the day. I kept getting asked if I had any questions over and over again. This is after I had opportunities in the prior interviews to ask questions and even got to meet the manager of the local location when I came in for the video conference. I'm guessing the "lack" of interest they picked up on came from me not having many questions... but by the time I had reached the end of the shadowing day I had already had discussions and questions answered by three UniFirst managers and my route driver over a period of several weeks.
