58 Sales Boy Questions and Answers:

1 :: Tell me what is your goal/ambition in career?

This another very probable question for freshers appearing for an interview. The interviewers wish to know whether you have well set dreams and ambitions for yourself. They try to analyse whether you are an ideal choice for the career. Your dreams and goals explain a lot regarding your knowledge and confidence in your field. Individuals who are not sure what they want to do with their lives are unable to have a clear goal or ambition.

2 :: What do you think our country is lacking?

The old school guys always have a bad impression about youngsters. They think the present generation is less patriotic and lack maturity. They wish to understand how much you care for your nation or think about it when they ask you questions like these. It would be great to have a clear answer with statistics ready for questions like these. If you mention poverty, illiteracy, lack of proper leadership or any other point, have facts and figures to support what you say.

3 :: Tell me a situation where you found yourself dealing with someone who didn't like you. What did you do?

I am pretty easy going, and I usually get along with everyone. That being said, at my last job, there was a co-worker that I didn't care for. They were pretty negative towards my new ideas in meetings and publicly put my ideas down on a pretty regular basis. I was the new guy and didn't have much credibility." His name was Jake and everyone knew that Jake was a huge sports fan. I am pretty into baseball, so when everyone went to lunch, I made it a point to pick his brain on what he thought about different players and different teams. I never contradicted his opinions, just got him talking to me, and getting to know me. It was just a matter of us finding something in common. I believe that when people get to know you, they tend be nicer to you. I have found that when I am not getting along with someone, we don't know each other enough and we need to find common ground.

4 :: Can you explain what motivates you?

I'm driven by competition--competition with others and competition with myself. Not only am I motivated to be the best at what I do, but I'm motivated to out do myself whenever I get the chance. I'm also motivated by the thrill of the chase, challenge of the hunt and satisfaction of the kill. I enjoy prospecting for new clients, learning everything I can about a prospective client, developing the perfect pitch, and then closing the deal.

5 :: Explain me a time when your sales skills resulted in a success?

This is a direct but very pertinent interview question designed to assess your mind-set and level of selling skills. In your answer show your awareness of the various techniques for selling and how these vary depending on the type of product involved, the kind of business, and the way in which you interact with the customer. For example, it is recognised that telephone selling is different from the face to face situation, since with the former there are no body language clues available; it is all down to interpretation of the customer's voice response and careful choice of words. In your interview answer include examples of all techniques you have used and the results achieved.

6 :: Tell us can you think of a time when you didn't see eye-to-eye with a supervisor?

Describe a situation where you were correct, and the (polite) arguments you made to bring the boss to your side. Make sure the result was a win-win.

7 :: Tell me do you feel you can work well unsupervised/in a team/both?

Mention some incidents where you had to work in a team, perhaps a drama performance, or a sporting event where you had to come together with your teammates.
For me, for unsupervised I would probably talk about writing my university dissertation and not really having any contact hours with my tutor for guidance; while for team work I'd mention when I was in year 11 and as part of a group we had to make a scale model of the small estate where our school was located for a local anniversary. - JR

8 :: Tell me why have you chosen this field as Sales Boy?

There are many people who select their profession after assessing their likes, dislikes and knowledge in different fields. But this is not the case with all students. There are youngsters who lack direction in life. These are individuals who are unable to identify their strengths early. They may choose a field just because it appears better than the rest. Questions regarding choice of a field can be challenging to such individuals.

9 :: Tell me what does your company value?

Do your values align with mine? If you are working for a company that values the same things as you (for example, greener technology, pro bono work) then you may enjoy working for a place like that better.

10 :: Tell me what is your career goal?

This is one of the common questions posed in interviews. The interviewers are always curious to know your career goal and your dream career. They try to analyse from your replies whether you are a good choice for the particular job. Different questions they pose try to understand your liking for the industry you have chosen.
