    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Scranton, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Core-Mark (Scranton, PA).

    Interview

    Pretty laid back. No stupid behavioral questions. No dopey tests given.

    HR will call initially. Then contacted by an Area Sales Manager. (both of them are nice people.)

    Then you travel to meet the Area Sales Manager in person.

    Then you go to PA to meet the GSM.

    Interview Questions

    • They are looking for someone who can get the job done and sell sell sell. But it was a laid back interview environment.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They are flexible. It depends on your experience. They have the money to pay. It just depends on what your background is. Did you come over from a competitor...they would like that. Remember, they have the money to pay allot.
