    I worked at Slomin's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    WEEKLY PAYCHECKS. When the cold hits there is PLENTY OF OVERTIME. They feed you lunch (at your desk) during busy times so that you will stay on the phones. Decent salary for type of work and location.

    Cons

    No raises. Not any room for advancement (unless the person in the position you want dies).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the scheduling policy. Bring co-workers 'in the loop' so that they may advance.

    Field Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Slomin's in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied for an open position online though Monster. I was called by one of the recruiters and set up and appointment to come down and interview. The main office was a nice environment. Pretty laid back, nice people, and a family first type feel.
    I was brought into the recruiter's office after filling out some initial paperwork. Very nice guy with great attitude. However, the post on Monster makes it seem like you will be going on sales estimates and calls not really just pure door to door. They created this position because of laws put forward to limit the amount of cold calling they can get done in office.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions asked, I had already sort of ended the interview on my own after hearing cold calling and door to door. The man doing the interview could not have been nicer so I check it off the list as some quick experience/practice.
      Basically, going over your resume while asking to the point info seemed to be where the interview was heading.
        Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I was not aware that it was pure door to door work. Not setup appointments with even slightly interested customers. It does have weekly/hourly pay so if you can handle that style of sales I say go for it. The company seems to be a real cool place to work and learn.
