how to you feel about cold calling. 25 cold calls a day. How do feel about recording all your actions on a tablet PC for management to review. Why should we hire you. Why do you want to work at a difficult highly competitive industry like ours.
after driving to the regional office at their requested time, four hour drive one way, and taking time from my current job, for the Face to Face interview. I was told I was moving forward to the next step. Of Which they would send me a packet by Email, with three articles, for me to study and prepare a presentation. Also I was to receive a call sheet of what is needed for a cold call presentation, they wanted me to perform 15 of these. This was to be done on my own time and dime. I told them I was willing to do whatever it took and was looking forward to the Email, to start this process. Never received the Email, after the Manager calling 4 or 5 time for the initial interview, and never returning ANY of my follow up calls, I assumed they didnt want to persue me any longer. I thought I was at least due a phone call and left a similiar message on the sales managers phone after a weeks worth of no repsonse.
As a sales and service program manager, I pride myself on follow-up and follow-through, which is my secret to success. In my last sales job, I increased weekly revenue from 300 - 2000. In the sales job before that, I sold 9000 additional gallons of paint per store, in 53 wal-marts, resulting in 9.5 Million dollars in additional revenue.
I'm competitive, hard-working and I like building relationships. I like a fast-paced environment and I need an ever-changing atmosphere where I can have fun and be productive at the same time. (They DO NOT want to hear that you like sales just because you're friendly, good with people, etc. Those people should work in customer service.)
