    Inside Sales Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Central Steel & Wire (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter via LinkedIn who gave me a pretty in depth description of the company. He sent my resume over to the sales Manager and set up an in person interview. I wasn't able to take time off from my job at the time to come in, but the manager came in early and met with me at 7am before work so I could make it to my other job in time. I interviewed with both inside sales managers at separate times.
