    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Wilkins Solutions (Las Vegas, NV) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Interview was over the internet and finally phone. You need to pass a qualifying test online before the phone interview. There is a calculation and quote section that needs to be completed. The company is very nice. All the way through everyone that I spoke with was very helpful. It is a good company.

    Interview Questions

    • Calculating the correct pricing and discounts for the products in the quote. Once you do it it is not that difficult but the first time needs to be carefully reviewed.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    There were some personal issues that needed to be taken care of.

    CAM Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wilkins Solutions (New York, NY) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Multiple initial phone interviews; Lengthy, detailed performance requirements such as completing Excel spreadsheets and letters; final phone interviews. Offer. Non compete, non-disclosure agreement (they ask for life commitment, which seems odd, but is probably generic form fodder); typical background check, etc. Personally, I am an old pro, just looking for a little incremental income and some fun, I guess. I found the interview process, if I were to evaluate it from a professional standpoint, as "over doing it" or "trying too hard". Honestly, asking people to perform spreadsheet skills test is a bit too secondary schoolish, and says more about you than the interviewer. It says, "we are trying to look like big shots". When, in truth, the big shot companies, and I have worked for #3 and $ in my day, actually know they are big shots and don't have to be demanding to know it. Of course, I found these tasks a bit sophomoric. I have a lot of time on my hands and went for it, for fun. I don't regret that. Some of the younger ladies and gentlemen in the group might have thought otherwise, but I found it fun.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked for my questions right off the bat, which was a little unusual too.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It was simple; just a back and forth offer and acceptance.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Wilkins Solutions in May 2012.

    Interview

    it was unusually long, involved, and intricate, which sort of reinforced the notion that thiswa s a highly sought after and competitive situation.
    We had a few emails to set up an "interview". I sent resumes and cover letters, all the usual things. We had a brief phone interview following that, and then a delay of some weeks. Then an offer letter, non-disclosure agreement, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • The thing I found most unexpected was the casual nature of the interview. I didn't notice any of the usual weeding out questions. All text book stuff for the most part.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate as much as I should have. At the time, I was thrilled to get an offer. I wish I would have demanded either a base salary, or, more typically, a draw against future commissions. A draw is actually GOOD for both parties, because it means we both have skin in the game and believe it will be a successful arrangement.
