    Conseiller à la vente Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sherbrooke, QC
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Sears (Sherbrooke, QC) in October-2015.

    Interview

    Processus d'embauche vraiment pauvre, ce qui peut être considéré comme un avantage. Le recruteur a seulement regardé mon expérience en vente et m'a dis que j'avais de belles paroles et promesses mais qu'il voulait me voir agir sur le plancher de vente. Peu de vérifications antérieures, pas beaucoup de questions sur la personnalité, personnel peu interessé ce qui se retrouve dans l'environnement de travail tous les jours une fois engagé.
