    The interviewer asked pretty basic questions but kept going into my sales experience. The company (Vallen) is supposedly having CSR's be more of an Inside Sales position where you have to meet sales quota requirements. They should really just state that this is an Inside Sales or Sales position as this may save everybody some time.

    I was asked to give a dollar figure in regards to what my monthly sales expectation was.
