    Sales Representative/Merchandiser Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Young's Market Company (Pleasanton, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    When I arrived the recruiter who I had been in contact with was there waiting for us, he led us into a room where he had breakfast and coffee waiting from there we had a tour of the offices in Pleasanton and after the tours we were paired up with our first interviewee. I was led to a board room where I got interviewed by a district manager and the head of all sales for northern California. majority of the questions where situational questions then there were a few questions related to the position I was applying for. I think they wanted to know if i understood the job and they wanted to see what I think my strengths and weaknesses within that job are. after that firs interview I was led to another room where I was interviewed by two more district managers. A lot of the questions were similar to ones I already had gotten but they also threw in a few more situational ones that really made me think. from there I was led back out and one of the interviewees led me downstairs where my recruiter was waiting with a little gift bag and we chatted for a minute, he told me when they would be in contact with me by then we said our good byes.
