Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative
College Park, MD (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at AroundCampus in February 2013.

Interview Details The hiring process was for the most part pretty typical. The one thing that I found to be particularly difficult was the pre-recorded interview that I had. I did not like it very much because it did not allow me to build rapport or talk to a real person. Instead there seemed to be a lot more pressure because I was not talk to a human but rather a pre-recored interviewer.

Interview Question – The most difficult question I faced in my interview was to describe my most embarrassing moment. I had never heard this asked in an interview before so I was not expecting it. I was unsure of what to say but didn't want to take too long to respond. Luckily I remembered an embarrassing event from a few weeks prior so I just told that story.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at AroundCampus in March 2010.

Interview Details This is a job for someone that is willing to work hard for their paycheck and not expecting anything to be given to them. The interview process consisted of multiple questions asking how you would handle different situations. You also have to give an example of a sales pitch. I was asked to give a sales pitch about my favorite meal.

Interview Question – What is your favorite meal? Now convince me to go purchase that meal.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It was strictly commission.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at AroundCampus in April 2011.

Interview Details It wasn't very hard. The interviewer was really friendly. Because this is a sales job, she did ask me to sell her an advertising space during the interview. I told her that I might not have experience in sales at that time and she said it doesn't matter, she just wanted to see how well I could do.

Interview Question – Use one word to describe your personality   Answer Question
