    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Softchoice (San Diego, CA (US)) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Because I was referred I skipped the typical first steps such as phone interview and HR communication. I had 2 interviews and then no communication. When I reached out it was the beginning of the New Year and they said they were very busy but still interested. The next thing I know I see the position posted again and I apply and find out that they had decided not to hire me.

    • I was given examples of objections where I had to role play and respond to the objections.   Answer Question

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Softchoice in November 2012.

    Interview

    The proces was pretty favorable until the end. I met a manager and recruiting event and we hit it off. He was interested and fast tracked my resume to ge the first round phone interview. The phone interview was incredibly long, but I made it to the second round. The second round was straight forward as I interviewed with the manager that recommended me. There was also a relatively easy IQ/reasoning type of test. Third round was a video call interview with two other managers. They asked all the standard questions, but I got a bit nervous so it was little rocky, however I felt I ended it well. Regardless, the interviewers told me I would hear from the right after the new year with their decision. I have not heard from them since.

    Client Service Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Softchoice (Chicago, IL (US)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I absolutely loved the interview process I experienced with Softchoice! Softchoice hires polite and extremely knowledgeable professionals who will drill you but the challenge was a very enjoyable experience and gives one the ability to showcase their KSA's. Very transparent interviewers and process as a whole. Interviews will be scheduled, "normally" with a week, give or take a couple days, between the time span between each. Interviews will increase in difficulty quickly IF you are not honest with yourself and the interviewers. Overall A+ experience!

    Interview Questions

    • We are a company that loves our employees, we work hard and offer great perks (yes they do!!!) but we want to ensure we hire the right people. When our employees are happy we are happy and our clients thus are happy in return. Tell us what this means to you and how you would feel about our company policy which is that every employee will be required to offer 1 work day toward servicing the community we work in for the betterment of it and its people?   Answer Question

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA (US)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Softchoice (Seattle, WA (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    It was an easy interview process. I had the chance to do a phone interview then go to the company for a 1:1 meeting and a group meeting. We had the chance to be open and ask personal questions on professional development. Seeing most of the higher ups started out at Softchoice, they like to hire people withing and help them develop to bigger roles within the company. The interview was informal, but it was formal in a way that I came prepared to answer any questions and ask questions.

    I got the offer the same day. I was able to extend my offer, as I was going to take a short break and volunteer in NYC.

    I applied on LinkedIn and got a call from a recruiter the next day who gave me a lot of information about Softchoice and how I could have long term success there in sales. I came in for an interview the following week where I met with 2 managers and sat with a rep for about 45 minutes to ask questions and get a better idea of what my days would be like as a SC rep.

    Inside Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Softchoice in October 2014.

    Interview

    My first portion of the interview was very pleasant, with Megan, their talent adviser. She had me complete an assessment and then we had a great phone interview. I wasn't thrilled about the idea of joining sales, but Megan had great things to say about the company so when I was offered an in-person interview, I accepted. The two managers I interviewed with played a typical good guy/bad guy role, with the "bad guy" being very insistent that I didn't want the job enough for them to offer it to me. I don't know many people who are born passionate about sales, but that seems like the type of person they want to hire. In the end, I had tried to go in with an open mind and check out on an opportunity but was completely discouraged by the fact that they told me over and over that I could do the job, they just were convinced I didn't want to.

    Inside Sales Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Softchoice (Atlanta, GA (US)).

    Interview

    The recruiter asks you general questions about your resume. He sets up an interview with someone at the location near you. The interview at the location near you will be a breeze, however, that is an indication of their desperation to get new employees to fill those seats. Their turnover is high because the culture is very negative.
