A direct sales representative is the person in charge of selling a company’s product to its customers. They’re usually compensated by the number of sales they make rather than paid hourly or on salary. Direct sales representatives are usually required to go through an interview and training process before selling their company’s product. A representative can’t just jump into the role without understanding how products work, what they’re selling, or even where they would be expected to find potential clients!
It’s important for an employer to have interview questions ready before they interview a job candidate. Job seekers should be expecting a barrage of questions, so the interviewer needs to have some prepared in advance.
An employer needs to be prepared before the interview because it allows them to ask well-developed questions. This will also ensure that they can collect better information during the interview process, which will either allow them to hire a job candidate or provide valuable feedback on skillsets that need improvement.
