Sales associates often meet with prospective clients to educate them on the service or product that will suit their needs. As a result, they build effective, strong relationships between customers and the company. Successful candidates will be outgoing, professional, confident, motivated, and have excellent communication skills.
Job interview preparation is key. But, this doesn’t just apply to the candidate—it’s equally important for you as the interviewer. This conversation is your chance to determine whether that applicant will be a solid fit for the position and your team and company in general; however, it won’t happen if you don’t know what questions are appropriate or how individuals answer them with qualified experience.
This isn’t always easy because people can have different answers depending on their personal interests or skillset when asked about why they like working at certain companies versus others – so take some time before interviewing them and think of these common ones.
