Interview Questions

Had maybe the most thought provoking interview I've ever had. Here are some questions, interested in your take. 

1) Teach me something 
2) how are you underestimated?
3) how are you overestimated?

Hmm. Interesting indeed. I had a VP use the “teach me something” on my interview as well; fantastic way to get how someone can relate information to a layperson. Great sales skill to have

Very good skill. I think that question caught me so off guard that I bombed it lol!

I taught the hiring manager how to walk and pageant pose. It was fun and I got the job.

“I only hire people with a chip on their shoulder. What’s your chip?”

My first job they wouldn’t reassign me to sales because they said I would never be able to do it. Since then, I have 8 years of Sales experience.

I've never been asked the last two. How did you answer?

On the underestimated I was told that I couldn't do sales, 8 years later I've generated a little over 5M in revenue.

Over estimated - I don't really listen to the praise. I just show up and do what I'm supposed to do.

Man. I had the “teach me something” question too for my SDR interview. Pressure was on because I just told him I was a teacher for 5 years prior before getting into sales. Looking back at it, it’s probably a good question to test how candidates think on their feet

That’s roughly what she was driving at, also just how we convey New information to people.

That's easy to turn around into a success story.

100% agree. But I'm still amazed by the amount of people who stumble over it.

1) Did you know Baja California is responsible for 3.2 % of Mexico's GDP and the state of Baja California Sur is responsible for .76% of Mexican GDP. Mexico doesn't invest too much in Baja. It's just kind of there for them. 

2) I'm super efficient. I am always a top producer on our dashboard with yet the fewest amount of calls. 

3) Just because I went to a top university doesn't mean I am perfect. I have problems just like any other employee because I'm human.
