Outside Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee in Greenwood Village, Arapahoe, CO
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Waste Management (Greenwood Village, Arapahoe, CO).

Interview

Very quick and simple. Applied online and received a call from corporate recruiter soon thereafter. After a phone interview with the corporate recruiter going over the basic initial questions, I had to complete a short, 5-question online situational questionnaire that recorded video. It was a very simple questionnaire with MAYBE one behavioral-based question--and you got to think about your answer before recording. Then had an in-office interview with the sales manager. It wasn't an interview--more of him telling me the responsibilities of the role and a bit about the market and company itself. He didn't ask me any questions outside of what my previous job was like. Next I spoke to the Area sales manager about a week later, and it was similar--he only asked me a couple of generic questions about my previous experience and my personal history. They seemed to be interested more in how you present yourself and communicate in a quick interaction than on delving into your thought process/sales process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Waste Management (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    The individual I interviewed with was rude and cut me off after the first question. He would ask a question and then move on to the next before I got two sentences out. It was as if he had ADD or something?

    I then followed-up after the interview and never heard anything from the recruiter. Not even a "Thanks, but we've decided to move on".

    It was great because I quickly realized if they are hiring this type of person to do the hiring, then the company culture would be the same; unprofessional, cocky and rude with a toxic atmosphere.

    I would try Republic Services if you’re interested in the industry. Stay away at all costs!!!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Waste Management (Raleigh, NC) in December 2014.

    Interview

    First, a recruiter calls and talks through the position. He then schedules an interview.
    The interview lasted about an hour for me. Pretty casual setting. No panel, just one-on-one. Hard to gauge response of interviewer.
    Pay is $45,000 base + 20% commission. This position goes up to $1000 a week contracts. Larger accounts are taken by a large-account specialist.

    Interview Questions

    • Define 'pipeline'. Lots of technical questions from a 30 page file from corporate. He did not ask all the listed questions, but there is a very structured script that dictates the interview.   1 Answer

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Waste Management (Raleigh, NC) in March 2014.

    Interview

    face to face interview more of a get to know you and your personality rather than cookie cutter questions. I was able to answer more on my experience and what I do to make connections rather than have to answer "basic" interview questions. Not a why should I hire you but more of a what do you know about the company and how can you help benefit the team.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Waste Management in November 2011.

    Interview

    The local people I interviewed with were very nice. I was a referral, but had to formally apply to the position, which was expected. Turns out there is little communication between the local office and the corporate recruiters - I actually received a decline email from the corporate recruiters while I was in the middle of my second interview. (I got the job).
