    Interview

    My interview was a little non-standard. I was still in the military stationed overseas when I applied to this job. I thought that this would be an interesting and exciting career with a good company, so I submitted my application online and hoped for the best.

    My recruiter and I played phone tag over the course of my last deployment, and when I finally arrived in San Diego I was able to interview within a few days. The follow up from my recruiter was superb. He knew that I wanted this job and he was flexible enough to keep the hiring process going over a period of 3 months.

    My advice to people going into an interview with SolarCity is fairly simple: dress well, show up motivated, research the position as much as possible, and eat your Wheaties for breakfast.

    My recruiter really reached out and took a chance on me. I had no prior sales experience, and I wasn't living in the area when I applied, but we worked with each other until I was Honorably Discharged in San Diego. I was grateful for the interview and have been happy with my job since then.

    Interview

    After submitting an application, I was eligible to take an assessment test. The test measures how fast you're able to react to certain situations, computer skills, and psychological reasoning. I passed the test and received an email that I would be contacted for an interview. I received a call to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview is meant to screen out people that wont be suited for the job. My phone interview went great, the person interviewing me was very friendly and was helpful in preparing me for a face to face interview. There were 3 people present for my face to face interview and they were all extremely friendly and made me feel comfortable. I thought the interview went well as I answered everything right away to the best of my ability. The person that interviewed me over the phone was also present for the face to face interview and thought I did well. I received a call the next day and unfortunately, I didn't get the job as I didn't have prior sales experience.
