"When hiring sales associates, employers are looking for charismatic candidates who can provide helpful advice to customers and close sales. Be prepared to answer a few scenario questions that will assess your ability to handle difficult customers, sell a product, or excel on a team. Previous sales experience is an advantage, but not necessary."
The dreaded tell me about yourself question
I was not completely prepared for this question. I rambled about me being in college and other things but I now know that the answer should never be personal and should always relate to your experience and the position your are interviewing for.
Hate this question! >_< start off by saying where you went to school (the name) and then about your jobs and what you did there (your job was to stock, customer service) anything that relates to the job you're applying for.
