43 Sales Girl Questions and Answers:

1 :: Tell me explain what Do You Dislike About Sales?

Any time you are asked to provide a negative trait about the position you are applying for, you should tread carefully. An example of an answer that effectively resolves the question is, "Walking away from a sale when I know the prospect could benefit from our solution." This answer shows you know that there are times where you need to walk away and show that you understand that sales is about solutions.

2 :: As you know many sales personnel are uncomfortable making cold calls. Does it bother you? Why or why not?

No. Making cold calls does not bother me. This is part of a sales girl's work and I am quite well-versed in handling outbound sales calls.

3 :: Can you explain what do you know about our company?

This demonstrates your level of preparation and level of interest. Start by reading the organization's website and the Wikipedia entry if applicable, then search the company name on Google to read what others are saying about them. Concisely summarize what you learned about the organization's solutions, who they serve, who they compete with, and what industry analysts, employees, and other interested parties say about them. Finally, repeat these steps with the company's top three competitors.

4 :: Tell me what do you look for in an employer?

This is another rather easy question that measures suitability; however, in this case, it assesses your compatibility to the environment. In the same way, you are being assessed on whether you meet the company's needs and expectations; it will also be determined whether the company meets yours. This is important because it would be a waste of your time and the company's time to continue with the process if eventually you realize you will not be able to get what you need from them. Be clear but realistic about your expectations.

While it is easier said than done, the best way to handle a job interview is to be as relaxed as you can manage. Make sure you understand the questions clearly before answering, since it is better to give a well thought out answer rather than a quick and messy monologue. Don't panic if the interviewers look bored or even yawn, especially if this is your first or preliminary interview; remember that you're probably one in a long line of people they're interviewing that day. And if things don't turn out well, it's no big deal; there will be other opportunities.

5 :: Tell me why do you think sales is the most suitable career for you?

I believe that I have the skills, the patience and the qualifications that are necessary to work as a sales girl. Possessing the right attitude and the ability to implement strategies to impress prospective clients is my forte.

6 :: Tell me are you married? If so, do you have children? If not, are you planning to have kids any time soon?

This information can be found in your application form, assuming you were asked to fill one out. It is necessary to determine your dependents and people to contact in case of any emergencies.

It is also normally asked to get a better idea of your plans and priorities, and how your personal plans may coincide or affect your professional plans. It should not be seen as something discriminatory, as these questions can be asked of men as well. Also, since there are certain industries/fields that may not be ideal working conditions for women who are expecting, it maybe something your interviewer might point out when discussing the job description. So answer honestly, but don't volunteer too much information. If you're planning to start a family immediately, or if you're already pregnant, it would be best to be honest about this, but note that this may not weigh in your favor as the company may be concerned that you would complete your training or orientation only to go on maternity leave for two to three months.

7 :: Tell Me What Do You See Are the Key Skills In … ?

Common sales interview questions and answers revolve around how you view the skills involved in a specific sales technique or aspect of the sales process. For example, "What do you see are the key skills in closing a sale?" Answers to these types of questions should always focus on responding to the buyer's concerns and on how the product or service will benefit the recipient.

8 :: What motivates you as Sales Girl?

The question of motivation is one of the easier questions the interviewer asks to get a better idea of your values and personality and therefore assess whether these coincide with the company culture and nature of the position you're applying for. Be honest, but make sure that this is relevant to the job and company you're interviewing for. A safe response is to say that you're spurred on by challenges to learn and continuously improve yourself. This article on has more suggestions on how you may want to phrase your answer to this question.

9 :: Explain how do you handle rejection?

Not making a sale when you really want to is all in a day's work for a sales girl. It is no big deal. I do not dwell on a failure. I look forward to the next opportunity.

10 :: Can you explain what are your strengths and weaknesses?

☛ Strengths are skills or values you feel are an asset. Rather than just listing these down, be more specific. Values are relative, therefore tricky. You can be patient, but patient to what extent and in what context? Are you able to endure instructing someone who can't seem to understand you, or are you uncomplaining of people who are late? You can also give brief examples to be better understood.

☛ Weaknesses are skills or values you feel can be a liability and need to improve on. Since these may seem like points against you, turn the negative into a positive. Give weaknesses that, when looking on the bright side, can also be a strength, and highlight that fact. You can also give a weakness that you've created alternative solutions to or are currently working to correct. This article on has some great suggestions and examples.

Never refuse to answer these questions or give vague and non-committal answers since this will give the impression that you either do not know yourself well or are not confident enough in your abilities to recognize what you're best at and what you need to work on.
