    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Nalco Water (San Francisco, CA) in November 2007.

    Interview

    Many interviews 7-10! One day shadowing a regional manager and a sales representative on the job.

    Interview Questions

    • We had to write an essay describing the day we shadowed and our thoughts about the job and the sales process. We also had to describe ways to improve the sales function.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very little negotiation because it was a commision based sales job.
