    Sales Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at CBS Outdoor in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Initally had a 1st interview with Sales Manager of the department. Walked into the office the first
    thing that struck me was the lack of noise for a sales floor. It was deathly quiet.
    I was asked a number of odd questions during the interview e.g what my background is?
    And whether I'm a "head down - grafter type of worker?"
    Passed the 1st interview then had a presentation to do - without much imput in terms
    of what they were expecting. Had a weekend to prepare this. Then again had some very odd
    questions asked e.g what makes you lose your temper? and when was the last time you
    lost your temper? I found it strange as it didn't seem to have much bearing on the job
    in hand. Also the feedback they gave me was extremely different to the feedback they
    gave the agency so they didn't strike me as particularly upfront or honest.
    Seemed overall as though it was a "boiler room" type of atmosphere. Not a good first
    impression.
