    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Global Custom Commerce (Houston, TX) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Round 1) Started with a tour of the office by HR recruiter, next was interview with a Sales Manager to determine what you work ethic like, where you see yourself in the future of the company, what are some of you goals, what motivates you, etc. Next is a panel interview with a mix of employees (sales, CS, Live Chat) to determine if you are cultural fit for the company. Then go home and take a computer test.

    Round 2: Uncomfortable interview with Chief Sales Officer/Operations Officer where you answerin questions about whether you sell good

    Round 3: Interview with the CEO. asks how you improve, what motivates you,

    Interview Questions

    • What motivates you, how do you improve yourself, what is important to you, what makes you a good salesperson, why should i hire you,   Answer Question
