    Sales Manager Training Program Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Upstream Business Solutions (San Francisco, CA) in February 2009.

    Interview

    The first interview is very short, about 5 minutes, seems like they only call you to make sure you are correctly dressed since they do not try to get much information. The second interview is an all day work shadowing with a sales representative, basically you get to see what would be your day to day agenda, note that sales representatives are told to be distant from the interviewee, at the end of the day, depending if they liked you or not they give a recommendation at the end of the day to the manager, the third interview is with the manager and he makes the final decision whether to hire you or not, the third interview is pretty unformal, it also lasts like 5 minutes and they just try to see if you would be committed to the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me why do you think you would be a good manager?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    At the end (third interview) they try to make you say why do you think you would be good for the job, what they want to see is that you sell yourself to them. Also try to show them that the payment schedule isnt good enough for you, they will probably throw a bonus at you.
