    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stratford, CT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at UniFirst (Stratford, CT)

    Interview

    I was contacted by an absolutely incredible recruiter who took a lot of time with me.

    Phone interview with UniFirst was just to make sure you're not a weirdo.

    In-person interview met with General Manager and Sales Manager for approx. 50 minutes. Very standard interview just went over my resume in detail and answered a few other questions (typical "what would you do if" or "tell us about a time when"). After leaving, I stopped to get lunch and they called before I'd even finished my sandwich to schedule a time to talk to the Regional Sales Manager. That was a 10 minute phone call and I received an offer later that day. This was shockingly fast compared to all other interviews I've ever had.

    The only hold up was that some of my references weren't available immediately and they paused the process until they'd heard back from all of them. I think I eventually had to call one to get them to call back urgently - UniFirst was holding steady and wouldn't settle for 3 out of 4.

    Either way, nothing weird, nothing stupid, no "gotcha" questions or riddles. A very straight forward and fast interview.
    Interview

    None I hadn't answered many times in my life. They make you read a full script out loud to them to see how you sound. If you haven't read something out loud in a while practice a little before hand.
